The WoonVeilig solution comprises a professional quality DIY wireless home security system with IP camera for video surveillance, complete with the Intamac award winning web based alarm monitoring and messaging services. The system and service have been specifically designed to allow homeowners and small business owners to remotely monitor their properties, via the Internet and mobile phone. Every customer has a personalised web account, through which they can edit, update and manage their system from anywhere in the world. This simple-to-use website allows customers to control the monitoring service, and they can choose to be notified via text message, landline telephone and email in the event of fire, flooding and burglary alarm activations.
