Securitas wanted to give new and existing customers a proposition that was unlike anything they had offered before, a security system that broke the traditional mould but took advantage of the monitoring infrastructure that was already in place, including the manned response capabilities and alarm receiving centres.
The premise for the security system was that it should be extremely user friendly and accessible to a diverse target market. For this reason the dedicated gateway incorporates GPRS and broadband connectivity, making it possible for those without a fixed broadband connection to benefit from a monitored alarm.
The solution developed in partnership with Securitas was primarily a security solution, with features that included:
Securitas is a global knowledge leader in security, operating in 51 countries including Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Africa. From small stores to airports, Securitas employs over 300,000 people across a broad range of services from guarding, to consulting and investigations.
The DIY home security proposition first launched in 2012 with Securitas France and is available via their online retail store. Securitas Sweden launched their own version of the system in Q2 2013 which is also available online.
Intamac has a partnership with Securitas that covers the whole of Europe, and other countries in the Securitas group are underway with similar propositions.
SAFEHOME launches an internet connectivity solution for its DIY MY-SERENITY range of wireless products, known as ‘Connect Safe Home’, which will allows users to remotely control and monitor the status of wirelessly connected home security products from a PC, smartphone or tablet using apps for IOS and Android. www.my-serenity.ch/en/my-serenity-safe-home-protectas-en/
