Halo Home Monitoring System Provides Absent Home Protection

Intamac Systems : 19 August, 2010  (New Product)
With home owners feeling most vulnerable whilst on holiday, Intamac Systems is offering discount pricing on its Halo home monitoring system during the holiday season
Halo Home Monitoring System Provides Absent Home Protection
A survey of a random sample of 1000 UK respondents conducted by Intamac Systems found that over 74% of respondents were most concerned about a home disaster like a fire, flood or burglary when going away on holiday. The statistics were revealed today at the launch of Halo, a unique, easy-to-install home monitoring service that allows you to monitor or manage your home from anywhere in the world through your broadband connection.

"As the holiday season gets fully under way, its open season for housebreakers and accidents," said Kevin Meagher, CEO, Intamac. "The level of Home Security is the key risk factor for burglary victimisation, and over half the respondents of our survey had no Home Security system in place, and relied on friends or neighbours to keep an eye on the place. What people really want is a system that's easy to set up, that can tell someone who can then quickly do something about it - whether it's a broken pipe, or break in."

Halo is your first step towards creating a truly connected home, a place where your security and care sensors and video communicate wirelessly and can be monitored and controlled using a single, simple user interface - your online Halo home monitoring account. Whether at home or on the go, securely access your account from via the web or smartphone.

The service can be easily bought from home-halo for as little as £199 (with discount code INT1025) for the basic start up security package. The system is completely wireless and you can install it yourself in just 30 minutes - no need for expensive contractors or rewiring. There are no lock-in periods or expensive contracts with security agencies, offering you complete control of your home monitoring.

Home office statistics state that households with 'less than basic' Home Security measures were six times more likely to have been victims of burglary than households with 'basic' security and ten times more likely than households with 'enhanced' Home Security measures. However, the high price and effectiveness of "traditional" burglar alarm systems puts many people off.

The Halo product range consists of a variety of products from a starter kit, wireless camera, key fob, movement detector, door contact, smoke detector, external siren, external dummy siren, water / flood detector and keypad. You can pick the products for your specific needs, and add or remove sensors at any time. Install your products, register them to your online Halo account and your service is activated and ready to go - it's as easy as that!

"Advances in wireless technology and internet based computing have enabled us to offer a completely automated and affordable home monitoring solution," said Meagher. "There is a low level of trust in how effective traditional burglar alarm systems are in actually getting somebody on the scene in time, so we developed Halo to send alerts discreetly to someone who cares and can actually check quickly to see if action is needed. Halo ensures that Home Security is more effective than simply sounding an alarm that nobody responds to, and by connecting to the internet, a whole host of other services can be added to turn your Home Security system into a complete home monitoring solution.

Should an alert be triggered, rather than trying to alert the police or passers-by, the system instantly notifies you, or those you have nominated, by SMS, email, Twitter and voice call - a feature likely to be appreciated by the 50% of respondents who have said they would like to be notified of a security problem even if they were away.

You can tailor Halo Home to a range of useful applications, depending on your specific needs including:


* Video - view live streaming images via PC or smartphone or capture and save recorded clips to be viewed at a later date

* Home Security - real time data including video, as well as a range of alerts including intruder, fire, flood, panic and much more

* Caring for vulnerable young or elderly family members - including emergency alarms, user definable alert triggers and video to allow you to monitor and care for loved ones from afar and at all times


The Halo 100 starter kit is available now at a special price of £199 until 30th September 2010 by entering the discount code INT1025 when purchasing the kit.
