Security is one of the most important factors to consider when designing or renovating a home, keeping the occupants and building secure and offering the homeowners peace of mind that their home is safe and secure. With the latest advances in smart home technology, there are a number of smart security systems that have been designed to operate as part of a complete smart home system.

Building Regulations dictate that new dwellings must adhere to certain security standards such as having PAS24 certified glazing on the ground floor. Where PAS24 certified glazing is required, the minimal windows® system is one of the only slim framed sliding door systems on the market that is PAS24 tested. This means the minimal sliding door systems are suitable for use anywhere, on any project, without limitations. The minimal windows® sliding glass door can be specified with a range of handle options including with electromagnetic locking systems, depending on location and preference.

Smart home systems from IndigoZest can be tailored to meet the needs of each individual project, including as many smart technology aspects as you need to suit your lifestyle. Smart home security is just one aspect of a BMS system and can be tailored to suit individual needs, such as enhanced security systems if the homeowner travels and is away from the home a lot.

IndigoZest can provide doorbells with cameras that you can control from anywhere, as well as fully integrated alarm systems and pre-programmed settings that create the illusion of an occupied home. This is done through bind or curtain movement and sporadic lighting patterns, which mimics the pattern of someone travelling around the house. You can even play a dog barking sound through the audio system if the doorbell is pressed while the house is in away mode. This smart home security system can be tailored to your specific lifestyle, an excellent burglar deterrent for peace of mind when away from the home. Smart security systems can also be programmed to lower the set point of your heating and switch off electronic devices when you select the away function, saving on energy costs.
