Simple but secure home security
September 2017, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Integrated Solutions

Home security is a priority for the majority in order to protect loved ones and the memories, mementoes and priceless items in the home. At the same time, cost is always a concern, with many people unable to afford private home security services. It is for these reasons that there is a growing trend towards home security systems which can be installed by the user and are much easier on the pocket.

Panasonic’s Home Network System, for example, allows you to create a wireless network of cameras, sensors and controllers, both in and outside the home. These can be controlled with a smartphone, via a single app, and offer many additional benefits over standard security systems.

For example, the system doubles as a complete and comprehensive baby monitoring device, enabling parents to check in on the child using live video footage, streamed directly to their mobile device. It is able to detect motion, sound and temperature and can immediately notify you of any unusual conditions. In addition, the camera offers a built-in microphone and speaker, enabling parents to talk to the baby, or play up to five different lullabies to help it fall asleep.

In a similar fashion, external cameras will allow users to monitor their pets at any time and from anywhere – perfect for those occasions where you have to go away for a day or two. The same outdoor cameras are also useful for assisting you in checking who is knocking on your front door.

These cameras not only deliver real-time streaming, but also offer a quad view, enabling the user to view up to four cameras simultaneously, as well as providing motion detection for specific areas of the garden where recording and notification are considered critical.

Moreover, because the solution is run by an app on your smartphone, you can control lighting and appliances remotely too, turning devices in a room on and off, at anytime and anywhere. This means you can make it appear as though someone is in the house, even when you are away.

Panasonic’s Home Network System allows you to decide what solutions you want and add these to the network as and when they are required. It includes external and internal cameras, smart plugs for controlling your lights and doors, windows and motion sensors that will alert you if anyone enters your property.

Not only is this an extremely cost-effective solution, it is also simple and easy to install. The system can be set-up in three easy steps, without any complicated installation. Simply plug in the hub, download the Home Networking System app – which is available on both iOS and Android – and ensure your mobile device is connected to your Wi-Fi network. The system is seamlessly integrated with Wi-Fi and has a range of over 300 metres.
