Your home automation system can provide many options to ensure that your family is secure and feels safe anytime of day or night.
A strange noise outside?
Hit the 'Panic' mode button and turn on outside lights immediately and any selected internal lights instantly.
Don’t advertise your absence to would-be burglars!
Give your home a “lived in look” by scheduling lights to turn on and off at set times, and opening and closing curtains morning and evening.
Security aspects can be built into your home automation system to ensure that your family feel safe any time of day or night.
Security cameras can be linked to your TV – see who is at your door before you answer.
Your home automation system can be linked to your alarm to provide additional safeguards. For instance, when an alarm detects a fire, or a certain level of smoke, then all the lights in the house could be set to blink, to alert occupants. Where a home theatre is installed, all audio and video components could be closed down to alert the home owner to a possible fire or burglar.
With light level sensors your lighting control system can be designed to take advantage of natural light levels and use less artificial lighting wherever possible. When offices are vacated, the lights can be controlled to turn off automatically. Instead of being permanently lit, occupancy sensors can ensure low traffic areas are lit only when necessary. If a staff member is working late, occupancy sensors will override pre-set lighting programs to provide safe pathway lighting.
Do your security lights need to be on permanently all night? Let us explain how sunset switches and motion sensors could be used to switch the lighting on ONLY when needed.
A “sunset switch” can be used to keep your name lit up all year round and also assist with security. Sunset switches turn on automatically when natural light falls below a pre-set level, then switch off again when the sun comes up.
