You are protected from unwanted intruders with a number of highly sophisticated devices; A range of new intelligent PIRs detect not just movement but will can also tell the difference between an intruder and the family pet. If doors or windows have been opened, magnetic contacts can trigger alarms. ?Presence simulation? can be used to dissuade intruders from entering in the first place ? by drawing the curtains, adjusting the blinds, and switching the lights on and off to make it look as though someone is at home.
Security benefits of Intelligent Home Control
* Detection of possible intrusion
As already mentioned, your IHC system will detect any unwanted intruders and then notify the relevant person/people/authorities. This is discussed later in the article.
* Simulation of presence
Again, as has been mentioned, your IHC system can make it look as if someone is at home, even when you are away for weeks. Lights periodically switched on and off and curtains being opened and closed at preset times are all ways in which this is done.
* Detection of fire, gas leaks, water leaks
State of the art sensors will notify you of a possible fire and/or gas and water leak as soon as the system detects it. If you are at home, you needn't worry about not hearing the alarm as in addition to this, lights can be set to flicker and all audio can be immediately turned off.
* Medical alert
Some IHC systems allow the wearer to contact emergency services at the touch of a button from anywhere in his or her home ? 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
* Precise and safe closing of blinds
You can set how you want your blids to close & at what time.
Some other practical implementations of Intelligent Home Control are when a fire is detected, all lights in the house will blink to alert occupants. If the house is equipped with a home theatre, Intelligent Home Control can turn off all audio and video to alert the occupant of a possible fire or burglar.
You are in complete control. You can personalise your IHC to your own lifestyle, accommodate pets and visiting guests or a cleaner.
You can choose to be alerted via text message, email or phone which means you are no longer at the mercy of alarm call centres & you needn?t worry that your neighbours will just ignore the noisy alarm.
Friends, neighbours and family can also be alerted about incidents such as break-ins or fires and can take immediate action, which means people can avoid false alarms, as well as the resulting penalties and blacklisting by the police.
The list goes on. Next week, we will consider the Safety benefits of Intelligent Home Control, so keep an eye out for that article.
