Verisure is part of the Securitas Direct brand which has a long history in the alarm systems industry. As such, Verisure has become the leading company for professionally monitored domestic alarm systems across Spain, Belgium, France and Scandinavia. Their smarthome wireless alarm system is ideal for any business or domestic property that has a functioning GSM signal.
The components and hub itself all look very stylish, with a white finish and sleek design. As it has also been designed to be smartphone enabled it is possible to remotely set or unset the device and you can watch what is happening inside your home through an app. This kit is not just a security system to protect your home from burglary, it is also a monitoring package to protect from temperature changes, carbon monoxide leaks and flooding.
What does the Verisure Alarm System Cost?
Although this is not the cheapest kit on the market today, coming in at just under £700, there are offers available which can reduce that price. However, it is also important to remember that there is a monthly fee to figure into the budget too, covering the property 24/7 for home monitoring. This also covers guard response and an ongoing maintenance contract.
There is a camera inside the system’s PIRs so that the alarm centre is able to see quickly what has triggered the alarm and take appropriate action. If the alarm is activated a camera will take several photographs and then immediately send them to the ARC (alarm receiving centre) where they will be evaluated and then the staff will alert a guard to come to the property if necessary or, alternatively, if it is a false alarm, the activation will be closed down. As the detector’s sensitivity can be adjusted, pet owners won’t need to worry and as there is a flash integrated into the camera it is also suitable for night use.
Shock sensors have been designed to protect strategic entry points and the Verisure model incorporates the latest vibration detecting piezoelectric technology. This allows users to only part-set the system so that the perimeter can remain protected when you are at home.
Smart Key Reader
This allows the user to deactivate or set the alarm without learning a complex code. The key reader also has a panic button which immediately alerts an operator if it is pressed. As an added bonus it can be used as a door chime. The SmartKeys are able to be used to switch off the alarm or switch it on again without learning a code. As every SmartKey comes with an identity of its own you will be able to quickly check who has entered and left the home and blocking lost keys and registering new ones is easy.
This kit comes with a 105 decibel high powered siren to scare away burglars and alert neighbours. The siren also activates if the temperature inside the house exceeds 65 degrees C. The kit comes with stickers which can be put on windows and doors as a visual deterrent for burglars.
The Verisure alarm system is highly effective and offers complete peace of mind for the homeowners. Not only does it protect against burglary and intruders it also alerts the homeowner in the event of a fire, flood or carbon monoxide leak. As you would expect from a reliable manufacturer, this is an impressive piece of kit and with its 24/7 on-call guard response you can be sure that in the event of an intrusion someone will be there as quickly as possible.
