To protect your home with smart technology, no great effort is required. If you want to secure windows and doors, door and window contacts that reliably detect every opening will help. The unobtrusive sensors can be easily attached with double-sided adhesive tape. Motion detectors, which you can place in almost any location or mount on the wall, track intruders who have nevertheless entered the house. A loud, cordless alarm siren helps drive away the burglars.
With Homematic IP, configuring the security system is just as easy as installing it. That's because the free Homematic IP app guides you through the steps of installation. In doing so, you simply specify that motion detectors, window contacts and alarm sirens should secure the home - and the components are configured accordingly. This is already enough for you to activate "Full protection" when you leave the house. In this mode, all motion detectors and door and window contacts are armed. So as soon as a burglar opens a window or door, the alarm siren starts wailing and you receive a message on your smartphone. If a burglar makes it into the house through an unsecured entrance, the motion detectors are on the spot. An unnoticed intrusion is impossible in this way.
In the "Envelope protection" mode, only the building envelope is monitored. In this mode, only the door and window contacts are active as security sensors, but the motion detectors do not trigger an alarm. So you can sleep at night with a good feeling and at the same time move freely in the house.
If the security system is activated, it keeps even experienced burglars away. If an intruder tries to tear a door and window contact off its frame, the sabotage contact triggers immediately. If he uses a transmitter to jam the Homematic IP radio, this will also be noticed and an alarm will be triggered immediately. And even if the burglar cuts the Internet and destroys the access point, the security system continues to work.
