Gone are the days of blurry, out-dated CCTV cameras – now we have incredible high definition cameras viewable anywhere in the world from your phone. These cameras have tilt, zoom and pan capabilities so you can check on every angle of your home and review the footage.
Intercom is now at advanced levels with simplistic yet stylish designs that won’t detract from the beauty of your building. These intercoms alert your smart devices with a video feed of who is at your door and allow you to provide access, with motion sensors that trigger photos even if no buttons are pressed. And for better visibility and security, tying in intercom to an automation system means you can remotely turn on your front door lights all from your intercom page. For more advanced control, scheduled access can be programmed in by setting certain codes to work at certain days and times. So, if a gardener comes at 8-10am on a Wednesday, their code will only work at that time. Set as many different codes as you like and monitor when each code has been entered.
Integrating your doors, garage doors or electric gates into your automation system allows you to check that your home is secure no matter where you are in the world. With automation, you can get the absolute most out of your home’s alarm system through the programming of custom Scenes such as ‘Goodbye’ which when selected will arm the alarm and gradually shut down the entire system ensuring all lights, climate and AV are off. Then, when someone returns home and the alarm is armed, entering the home will bring up the Alarm page on your wall-mounted touchscreen so you can easily and quickly disarm rather than having to navigate to the right page. Then upon disarming, the ‘Welcome Home‘ Scene will trigger and the lights will gently turn on in the home, evoking that ultimate state-of-the-art, luxurious feeling from your automated home.
Construction Site Security
We know how important it is to keep a building site secure, because with no one living at the location, there is no one to ensure that the expensive gear, tools and features of the home are kept safe. That’s why when you take on a full electrical and automation contract with us, we provide a complementary temporary site security setup to watch over the site from start to finish. We also offer this to other builders charged at a monthly fee.
Our security setups usually include 3 cameras that run on 4G, so the builders can login at any time and monitor the site. This provides ultimate peace-of-mind and convenience in project management as they can see what’s happening onsite at any time from anywhere in the world. Scheduled into the system for after-work hours are powerful security features such as the cameras flashing strobe lights and an audible siren if someone attempts to break in. The builders are alerted to this and can have a two-way conversation through the camera. We use a 360 degree controllable dome camera, with pan, tilt, and zoom features to thoroughly check the site. After hours, this camera goes into an automatic patrol, moving around to survey the site. All our cameras have UPS battery backup, so if the power is cut they will still run for a full day on battery.
We also program the cameras to take two snapshot photos per hour throughout the day so we can put together time-lapse videos to show milestones of the build – great for marketing use. Get in touch with us if you’d like to organise a temporary security setup at your job site.
