Wire­less free­dom

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - TRADES & SERVICES - Janita Singh

WIRE­LESS tech­nol­ogy has changed the scope of home se­cu­rity.

Wire­less sys­tems mean there is a home se­cu­rity op­tion for ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing renters and older style homes where drilling may risk dam­ag­ing to walls and ceil­ings, says Dar­ryn Bull of ADT Se­cu­rity Aus­tralia.

Bull says for many home­own­ers get­ting or up­dat­ing home se­cu­rity dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son, the dif­fer­ent op­tions can be mind bog­gling. But the best ap­proach is to con­sult a pro­fes­sional who can as­sess your needs.

Bull says with busy life­styles, the trend for in­terac- tive/smart home se­cu­rity, which uses wire­less tech­nol­ogy, is on the rise.

“Wire­less tech­nol­ogy has been in­stru­men­tal in trans­form­ing the se­cu­rity in­dus­try as they use ra­dio waves, rather than wires and ca­bles to send sig­nals be­tween the con­trol pan­els and sen­sors,’’ Bull says.

“In­ter­ac­tive wire­less se­cu­rity sys­tems with por­ta­ble cam­eras that are linked to web-based (cloud) ap­pli­ca­tions now give home­own­ers the free­dom to con­trol their home se­cu­rity sys­tem re­motely via a smart de­vice.

“This can also be very use­ful in sit­u­a­tions where a home­owner might have for­got­ten to arm their alarm – as they can sim­ply tap into their sys­tem via their smart­phone and arm it re­motely.”

Bull says a se­cu­rity sys­tem that is in­te­grated with home au­to­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy also al­lows users to en­joy other life­style ben­e­fits while keep­ing homes se­cure.

“For ex­am­ple, wire­less cam­eras and sen­sors can be pro­grammed to send home­own­ers a no­ti­fi­ca­tion when some­one en­ters the home, or lights and ap­pli­ances can be pro­grammed to switch on and off, as well as arm­ing and dis­arm­ing the alarm sys­tem – all from the con­ve­nience of your smart phone or tablet.” For more de­tails: visit adt­se­cu­rity.com.au
