A complex smart security system for full-house protection
Most domestic burglaries are committed by opportunists who target properties that appear unoccupied, have little or no obvious security, or where they think they won’t be seen. Installing a complex personalised smart home alarm is one of the most effective ways to prevent burglaries.
The biggest advantage of smart alarms systems are their customisability and accessibility. You can choose from a pre-built alarm systems and expand on this as your needs grow, or build your own bespoke system from scratch. You can combine up to 96 accessories, so no matter the size or shape of your home, you can rest assured that every corner is secured.
Smart alarm systems are a wireless technology, allowing you to monitor a property at anytime from anywhere in the world. It is connected via WiFi and is controlled through a smartphone app, so you can monitor your property whatever the time and place whilst being notified about any incident in real-time.
