Response Electronics have announced a new range of smart home burglar alarms that will start shipping soon. The miGuard G5 is around £180 and brings a host of intelligent features including a built-in GSM SIM to enable remote operation (including Arm / Disarm and personalised text messages when the kids come home), touch sensitive keypads, wireless remote control, RFID tags, electronic lock support plus free iPhone and Android smartphone apps…
Homeowners can now secure, monitor and control their homes from a smartphone app – giving increased peace of mind, without the need for an expensive monthly contract.
This means parents are notified immediately when their children let themselves in (using the RFID tags included), if there’s a power failure, or an intrusion. If there is an intrusion, miGuard tracks homeowners down via phone and/or SMS, and lets them listen in so they know what is happening – and to verify if there is an intrusion, or false alarm, before deciding whether to call the police. As the Control Panel has a built in in mobile phone, users can also have a hands free two way conversation and even leave a voice memo.
Bob Rose, MD at Response Electronics says:
“People always have their mobile phones with them 24/7 and there are apps for most things these days. Home security seems to have been left behind as technology has moved on. So miGuard brings homeowners right up to date, using smartphone apps and RFID tags. Using a new self-monitored alarm system means their properties have never been more secure.”
