Smart technology for the home is one of the fastest growing areas of technology at the moment. When you see Apple investing in technology you know it’s going to be big. Bringing this technology to the level where it is more accessible and affordable is where Home Smart Security comes in. They have some great technology that integrates easily, can be installed by a home user, and provides the functions of a smart home technology.
Home Smart Security have a base kit unit that has a camera, a motion detector and a smart socket. The latter allows you to turn things on and off from your smart phone. All the parts of the Home Smart Security system work directly from your smart phone.
One of the things I liked best about the Home Smart Security Home Kit was how easily the home user can set this up. The entire set-up is done via your smart phone (iOS or Android). You log in, tell type in your wifi code, then show the camera/base unit the QR code generated on your phone. The camera reads the code and does the rest of the work from there. The camera and all the security functions of the Home Kit are now available to you from anywhere where you’re connected. As someone who often attends jobs for connecting IP cameras and CCTV to the internet it’s wonderful to see technology that does it all for you. I’ve seen many cheaper units that require an hour or two of my time to set up for internet viewing or some that won’t connect no matter how much we try. This unit did all the hard work for us.
Security is the heart of the matter for this system. The Home Smart Kit comes with a passive infrared (PIR) motion detector and the base unit which also contains the camera. It’s a hell of a lot more effective for security that a single camera, which rely on software based motion detection. The unit connects directly to the app on your phone and will alert you when something goes on you should know about (as well as sounding an alarm). You can log in directly on your smart phone and view what’s happening.
You can add to the base package with reed switches (to protect doors and windows) and panic buttons.
Beyond security, the kit also contains the Smart Socket, which you can control from your phone to turn things on and off.
