How to safe guard your home with a smart home technology system

home automation installer electrician in Sydney

The festive season is a time to take a holiday, relax, connect with family and friends, and have fun. At this time of year, it’s easy to forget about your home’s security as we often leave doors and windows open to allow for fresh air. However, when you leave your home for holidays, it’s essential to take precautions against burglaries and break-ins.

Unfortunately, holidays are prime-time for thieves. In fact, home break-ins are so common, they now account for over one-fifth of all offences reported to police, and there are an estimated 380,000 break-in incidents in Australia each year. 

Thankfully, by taking proper home security precautions, you can avoid becoming a target.

At Safe N Sound, we are registered installers of the FIBARO smart home technology system. FIBARO makes it possible to give the appearance of someone being home and your home being secure, even if you’re holidaying far away.

The complete eco-system is incredible technology that offers a range of features to keep your home safe. 

The FIBARO motion sensors are integrated with a surveillance system that keeps an eye on your property 24/7. When it detects motion, you will receive a notification to your phone that contains a video recording, to identify if there is an issue.

The ease of using the FIBARO Home Center app, means you can remotely arm and disarm your home alarm, access surveillance cameras and check the status of all sensors. The app gives you the peace of mind that your property is safe. 

It’s the reassurance that your home is protected by a state of the art smart home sensor and camera system, that is one of the most effective and trusted security systems on the market.

The FIBARO system will also make passers by think someone is home. You’re able to set a schedule for your lights to switch on at night and choose which areas of the house should be illuminated. 

With lighting controlled remotely and integrated with the alarm system, you can switch it on in case of emergency. If you are on holidays, lighting simulation can give the appearance that someone is home even when you’re not there.

Worried you might miss a delivery or the housekeeper can’t access your home? With FIBARO you can specify access for particular people, further reducing the risk of intruders on your property. By supplying an individual PIN to trusted people, the routine of your home safely continues even with you on holiday! 

As you have remote access to your front door via our smart intercom system, FIBARO also acts as a virtual key to your home for couriers or guests. Simply speak with them through the intercom and provide instructions to ensure you never miss that important delivery.

One area of the home many people forget when they’re on holiday is the garden. FIBARO is your in-home concierge and can adjust the mowing or watering frequency of your garden based on weather conditions, and control the lighting of the garden during the evenings further giving the illusion that you are at home.

If you’re yet to catch up to the smart home system technology, the geniuses at FIBARO have created the perfect solution. One of the major benefits of the FIBARO smart home eco-system is that it enables existing homes to be easily transformed into smart homes using the wiring that’s available.You don’t need to rewire your home or spend a small fortune upgrading the electrical system.

Products can be easily installed with items connected wirelessly using a range of sensors and activators that can be applied to everything from roller doors, blinds and skylights to door locks, lighting and appliances.

Darren Dewerson - licensed electrician in Sydney

I started in the industry installing security alarms and CCTV camera systems 25 years ago in London. I worked on thousands of sites servicing alarm electrical systems for large building companies, schools & other locations.

When I arrived in Australia I wasn’t allowed to apply for a security licence as I was not a citizen at the time so I decided get my TAFE qualifications and retrain as an electrician which complimented my electrical assistant work in London. I have been working as an electrician in Sydney since 2005.

For just over 40 years I have been involved in all types of electrical installations, upgrades, emergency repairs and set ups.
