Ireland has long sought to catch up with technologies widely available in the land across the ocean. Like American Football and Diners, Smart Home Security and Automation has spread its influence to Europe. With Ireland quickly following in the footsteps of our US counterparts.
The US market for Smart Home is growing at such an incredible rate that it is predicted to be worth €73 million by 2021. More than 80% of American home buyers have expressed an interest in the technology. So, it’s no wonder Ireland has picked up on the trend!
By implementing Smart Home Security and Automation, houses are transformed into more than just living spaces. They become a place of ease, comfort and convenience. Our products work as part of an Ecosystem allowing for integration of all aspects of the Smart Home. Everything is controlled from the one dashboard making our system even smarter.
We offer solutions for all needs, including Smart Home Security, Video Monitoring, Home Automation, Heating Controls and Wellness.
Smarter Home Security
For the first time, the heart of the home is placed in the control of the homeowner. Home Security Systems give homeowners valued insight into what is happening in their home at all times. The technology provides a source of incredible real time knowledge so homeowners feel assured that their home is safe and secure.
Users are sent instant alerts and email the moment any unusual activity is recognised in the home for ultimate peace of mind.
HD cameras let you live view what is happening inside and around your home straight to your phone. Some of our cameras, including the popular Video Doorbell, come with an intercom feature so you can chat to visitors, family and even pets (if that’s your thing), while you’re away from home.
But security isn’t the only feature of the smart home. We provide add-ons to our package to give users an all-round smart home automation experience. With simple to use technology, homes become a space for sustainable and convenient living.
Wintery spells can have us craving a perfectly brewed cup of tea while sitting on the sofa in the coziest of temperatures. Now you can relax by not moving a muscle to change the thermostat. A push of a few buttons on the app swiftly adjusts the temperatures in your home, leaving you to rest in absolute comfort.
Even on the long, warm days of the summer our thermostat can recognise when a window or door is left open and turns itself down saving you money on your bills.
Lights can be switched on or off and slightly dimmed with control and ease to create a luxurious atmosphere thanks to Home Automation. You also add on colour changing LED light bulbs, which use less energy than regular bulbs, to easily alter the mood.
Want not waste not with energy as management tools are available on your phone. The app lets you monitor the energy usage in your home so you understand what appliances may be draining on your electricity. You can also compare your usage over time.
Never fear flooding again. Smart Leakage Sensors pick up on the presence of water where it shouldn’t be. With an extendable cable to access hard to reach areas, you’ll be notified of any leaks or flooding with the sound of an alarm. Leakage Sensors can also help you to reduce your home insurance premium.
Wellness is the perfect solution helping aging loved ones to live more independently by providing a 24/7 safety net. By monitoring the daily habits of your loved one, our system learns routine and alerts listed contacts if anything appears to be out of the ordinary.
You truly are King or Queen of your castle when you are in control of your home so why not try Smart Home Security and Automation? To learn more about what we have to offer call us on 0818 222926 or check out our website for more information.
Smart Home Security is already proved an essential when giving your home the best protection. With instant alerts, remote arming features and professional monitoring, Smartzone customers are getting the best experience and value for money with their home alarm system… not to mention we are cheaper than most of our competitors.
And while Smart Home Security is taking all the complication out of protecting your house, we have introduced a way to maintain the simplicity of our system yet make it even more intelligent.
How? By introducing Video Analytics to the Irish market. Video Analytics create an even safer environment in your home – meaning you truly get the best protection with our security system.
The intelligent feature makes it easier to understand what is happening in your home, providing an extra layer of security.
What is Video Analytics?
Video Analytics is a recently introduced feature on the Alarm.com app. The optional feature integrates with your HD Video Monitoring system to give more intelligent alerts and insights. Using Artificial Intelligence, the analytics tool quickly learns occurrences in your home. By doing so it begins to understand the difference between unusual and everyday, routine activity.
So, if you leave for work everyday at 7:30am and return at 6pm, it recognises this as something that is normal and happens regularly. This way if someone is detected around the house at 2:30pm, the feature instantly knows that this is unusual activity and that the homeowner should be notified.
The nifty tool also categorises your video alerts, by using real-time insight, to give you greater control and value for your video monitoring package.
What exactly can it do?
Camera used to serve a fairly standard function – video monitoring your home and saving to a harddrive for you to check out later. Smart Home technology transformed this by giving homeowners the option to save video footage to cloud storage so they can access only the most important video clips. The alert system meant that uses got instant notifications if anything out of the ordinary occurred.
Video Analytics has revolutionized how video monitoring works. The feature is so advanced that it can recognise if movement outside is the result of a person, animal or vehicle. Regular visitors, such as the postman, deliverymen (for those online shopping addicts), or neighbours, will be ignored so you’re not bogged down with any unnecessary alerts. These distinctions are made in real time before alerting you, or not, all according the preferences you set on the app.
We can now offer the function of creating zones and virtual, multi directional ‘tripwires’ around your home, so you are alerted the moment anyone or anything enters or crosses these sections.
With Video Analytics you know when
Pets break the rules: Want to know if it really is your neighbours dog who has been sniffing around your garden when you’re away? Or do you have a sneaking suspicion that your pet has been sleeping on your bed while your at work? You will now get notifications which detect the movements of animals inside and outside your home, depending on where your cameras are placed.
Visitors linger: Be in the know when an unknown visitor is caught lingering around your home, but not when the postman delivers your mail.
Vehicles stop: Get alerts when cars or vans pull up outside your home, but not every time a vehicle drives past.
You can add video analytics to your video monitoring system for just an additional €5 per month – not bad for that extra layer of protection. If you’re interested in activating video analytics contact Smartzone on 0818 222926. For more information about Smartzone and the services we provide visit our website at www.smartzone.ie.
Smartzone, Ireland’s leading Smart Home and Business Automation company, have introduced Video Analytics to the Irish market, through their provider Alarm.com.
The newly deployed artificial intelligence (AI) architecture and video analytics service monitors video streams in real-time and alerts property owners about important events, while ignoring routine movement.
The new service is available now for residential and business subscribers through the Alarm.com app. The app integrates all the features of the smart home or business into a centralised dashboard to ease of use and greater control.
The Smartzone provided video analytics engine is optimized to address a wide variety of smart security applications with cost-effective video cameras on the edge.
Smartzone’s video analytics engine provides an intelligent new layer of security and awareness for home and business owners. Object classification and object tracking technology can distinguish between people, vehicles and animals, determine an object’s direction of movement, and measure the duration of activity.
Smartzone’s customers can selectively control and manage notifications and assign virtual zones and multi-directional “tripwires” so they can monitor their properties for highly specific activity.
- Vehicles coming and going: Know when a vehicle stops outside your home during the daytime, or if a vehicle leaves unexpectedly overnight.
- Lingering visitors: Get a video alert if someone lingers by your front door, but not when the post is delivered.
- Automated deterrence: Set your lights and other home automation scenes to turn on when a person enters your premises, but not when an animal enters.
- Vendor validation: Business managers can confirm that a delivery truck pulled into the loading dock, but won’t be notified each time a customer exits the building.
Video analytics is the latest in a line of proactive, intelligent safeguards that differentiate Smartzone’s smart home security solutions. Crash and Smash protection can deliver an alarm signal even when the panel is disabled. Unexpected Activity Alerts notify families or business managers about unusual events indicating potential safety or security issues, while Geo-Services triggers location-based reminders that make it easy to keep homes and businesses secure.
Customers interested in activating video analytics should can contact Smartzone on 0818222926. Visit www.smartzone.ie for more information.
