Why security sensors are such an important? Smart Home, or intelligent building automation network, gives users the ability to adjust home functions to their needs. Since communication between devices can take place with little human intervention (e.g. programming OneTouch scenarios), controlling them is becoming more and more convenient and useful. The development of civilization is so fast. It is difficult to predict what advanced systems will accompany us in the future. However, we know that the comfort of living, ecology and economical use of energy is not all. Smart Home, thanks to modern security sensors, also protects the house from unwanted events.
The text answers the questions:
However, people are not always concerned only with convenience. The use of building automation on a daily basis is wider than that. Smart technologies alert you to emergencies and make life easier for the elderly, disabled (and their caregivers).
Entering the Smart Home sector also SALUS Controls brand took care of this aspect. The main idea of the company is focused on intelligent heating control. However, a big advantage of SALUS Smart Home system is taking care of users’ safety.
By installing security sensors of the smart series you gain the opportunities. For example, to go to work or shopping and leave the person you care for at home. OneTouch scenarios are helpful here. If someone at home feels unwell and presses the alarm button, you will receive an automatic SMS message. The idea is brilliant. And really effective.
It is worth knowing that smart solutions are a great protection against unpleasant random events. However, no technology can protect a person against all threats. Although, in many situations it is worth to rely on it. Remember that monitoring will not solve every problem. This is where security sensors come in handy.
What home security elements are worth paying attention to? On signaling:
Fire signaling is not just local smoke detection and activating an alarm siren. In SALUS Smart Home system the detection of smoke is automatically followed by SMS or e-mail). Similarly, in the case of detecting water (due to flooding the bathroom etc.) or opening the door or window. What’s more, if we create such a OneTouch rule, the system will not only send a notification about flooding. Instead – using SPE600 plug or SR600 relay – will close the water supply, inhibiting the formation of further damage.
if you’re away and something alarming happens at home, so you’ll get a message and time to react. Even if you monitor your property, cameras will not always capture what is recorded by sensors dedicated to failure detection. The operation of some devices – such as a refrigerator or a washing machine – should be monitored directly. And if after leaving home you are not sure if you closed the window? You can check it remotely using the SALUS Smart Home application (opening sensor). As a result, you can receive a notification when an unauthorized person is in your garage (motion sensor).
Similarly another useful security feature of the SALUS Smart Home system is the simulation of occupants’ presence. Thanks to intelligent lighting and blinds, empty interiors “pretend” that the inhabitants are home. Why? By giving the impression of activity of household members, the system will deceive a potential thief. Then it protects the house from burglary. How? By creating and activating a simulation schedule, the lights in the rooms will be switched. It will be done at predetermined times and then – e.g. after several minutes – switched off. Similarly roller blinds will close at sunset and open in the morning.
What do you need to program the above scenarios to strengthen the security of your home? First of all, the pillars of the SALUS Smart Home system, namely the UGE600 internet gateway and the mobile app.
They activate one (CSB600) or two (SB600) events (e.g. switching off lights, heating). CSB000 (panic button – model with cover) can function as an alarm button by sending pre-set notification.
The device detects the presence of smoke.
It can be used independently – without Internet gateway UGE600 and mobile app. However, only as a part of SALUS Smart Home system it has a function of emergency notification.
Waterproof flood sensor that detects water on the surface below it or on the contacts of wires connected to it.
It is possible to close the valve when a leak is detected. The also to send the user a free notification of failure.
Wireless device working in cooperation with the Smart Home app.
Allows you to enter in the schedule to turn off heating in the room. It is done for the time of ventilation / opening the window or door. As part of the system also allows you to receive notifications of the open/close event (windows, doors etc.).
In collaboration with the intelligent plug (SPE600) or relay (SR600) sensor allows you to turn on or off the lighting.
Firstly it allows you to control the devices plugged into it. Secondly, indicates the history of energy consumption (application). Thirdly, increases the range of ZigBee network and works with Amazon ALEXA (voice control).
It’s an intelligent relay for voltaged (e.g. boilers, pumps, lighting) and volt-free devices (e.g. control panels, gate controllers, opening sensors). It is designed to work in a switch box, wall socket (maximum load power – 16A). Smart Relay increases the range of the ZigBee network. So it can be paired directly with a thermostat as others work via OneTouch. It shuts off/releases the power supply – just like a Smart Plug.
