Peace of mind
Our systems include a range of sensors and actuators which can be configured in a variety of ways to protect you and your loved ones. Some examples of applications:
Floods & water leaks
The award winning Fibaro flood sensor can measure moisture and temperature, with a battery life of two to five years depending on application. This wireless sensor can detect floods and raise the alarm, in the process sending commands to isolate the water supply or turn electrical equipment off. It is possible to fit an external sensor to the unit for monitoring leaks in difficult to access areas such as under a washing machine. With the long battery life it is ideal for monitoring in remote locations such as second homes or cellars/plant rooms that are infrequently visited.
Fire and smoke
The Fibaro smoke sensor has both photoelectric and temperature sensors to detect both flaming and smouldering fires. The integral siren and RGD sensor will indicate when smoke or heat has been detected and it will also contact the central controller in the home, enabling the system to close windows to starve the fire of oxygen, raise blinds to reduce the risk of them catching fire and putting lights on to illuminate escape routes.
Detection of visitors
A universal sensor can be used to detect when the door bell has been pushed and to capture a still image from your CCTV camera and send it to you via email, so that you have a record of callers to the house.
Family member location
The Fibaro Home Center 2 enables you to see on a map the location of family members via their smartphones. The GPS tracking can also detect when one of you is approaching the house and bring the lights and heating on in readiness.
Protecting the elderly and vulnerable
You may have elderly relatives who live alone or remotely from you. A system can be installed which could monitor their house in a non-intrusive way. For example the temperature could be monitored to ensure the house does not fall below 14 degrees, the trigger point for hypothermia. Motion sensors could send a signal that your relatives are up and moving around; they could also switch the lights on low if they need to visit the bathroom during the night. A door/window sensor could be fitted to the fridge to detect that it had been opened at least once that day and therefore food was likely to have been consumed.
An external CCTV camera could record visitors to the house and capture images of callers outside the home (internal CCTV being too intrusive). Flood sensors could also be used to switch the water off if taps have been left on.
