Getting a home automation box

Thanks to connected technology, it is possible to live safely at home. The home automation will be the “brain” of your home, the mainframe. It will allow you to manage all your accessories and create scenarios allowing you to protect your home from possible intrusions. Thus, if an intrusion is detected, rather than directly triggering the alarm that may disturb the neighborhood, you can simulate a presence. If the system detects that someone has entered your property, you can start by turning on your lights at home, or turn on the Hifi rf wireless system, etc.

Choose different sensors

If you live in an apartment, we recommend you install at least an opening detector and a motion detector with a remote control and an indoor siren. These installations correspond to the basic security package.

 

If you live in a house more or less large, you will have to adjust the number of accessories according to its configuration, the number of accesses and also the number of rooms but especially you will have to add an outdoor long range wireless relay motion detector. Coupled with an external siren, this device can prevent a malicious person from entering your home.” For example, if you have a yard, you will put your outdoor motion detector in it. The burglar will sound your alarm even before he enters your home, this detector is animal compatible. That is, it is configured so that only people passages are detected.

 

For optimal service, thanks to the automation system, it is possible to “cross zones”. By coupling a door detector with a motion detector in the same room, if the door opens due to an air current for example, the alarm will not be triggered because no movement in the room has been detected. This limits false alarms that can also bother your neighbors.

Install IP cameras

The IP cameras let you keep an eye on your home wherever you are with your smart phone, tablet or computer. So, as soon as you received an alert, you can directly connect to the application to see what is happening at home and check that it is really an intrusion either by email or by push notification (new interface). The IP camera can also take photos that will be sent to you with the alert email.
