Bringing your alarm into present

by admin

Lets talk about smart alarms. Many many homes across Australia back in the 80s and 90s used a standard alone, or back to base alarm system. Many were deployed with products from Honeywell. These systems often relied on the old copper analogue telephone line. The more modern units had a 3G sim card. This allowed back to base monitoring and usually came with a month to month cost. Welcome to the world of smart alarms.

As you may know, the analogue phone network is being decommissioned across the country as the NBN rolls out its products. This may leave your alarm system in the lurch. Likewise, the 3G network is being slowly removed as 4G is now the standard with 5G being available also.

So how do you continue to keep your alarm system working without spending a fortune? How do you remove those month to month bills whilst also providing you the ability to monitor your alarm from anywhere? The answer is revitalizing your alarm and turning it into a smart alarm with Netsecure Automations help.

Whilst many companies offer cloud based solutions that monitor your alarm from their central system, they traditionally still have reoccurring monthly costs. Why not monitor it yourself? We find customers prefer this not to mention an improvement in responsiveness. You’ll be surprised how easy it is. We take your alarm, add in our smart board and make use of your existing internet connection to allow YOU to take control of the alarm.

What insight can we provide?

Monitor zones, arm/disarm and receive alerts. If you have IP security cameras, we can even integrate these to provide further insight. For additional security, we also integrate smart locks and provide a tool to manage the PIN codes for your smart lock – accessible only by you, from anywhere.

There’s no cloud access,no reoccurring fees and concerns about your data ending up in the wrong hands. We find many suppliers all have their own app or system to manage a component of the smart home. In the end you may have ten different applications and systems. This adds an enormous amount of complexity and can be frustrating to use.

Throw that all away and discuss your smart home with Netsecure Automation. We are Australia’s leader in bespoke smart home solutions. We bring all your technology together to create a harmonious and reliable system that provides real insight into your home.

Do you have a trustworthy consultant?

by admin



56% of shoppers are looking for exactly this as explained by Property Me in this article. Health benefits, convenience and property value are all sound reasons to to deploy smart home technology within the home. But without the trust , owners can feel frustrated. We encourage our customers to visit us at our home to try out the technology and get a feel for what smart home products can offer you. Very few integrators can offer this service but our feeling is the proof is within the pudding.

The world of smart home technology can be daunting so we encourage our customers to start slowly. Gradually building on the system as their needs increase and the familiarity with the system grows. One of the benefits of a smart home is that it can grow as your needs change as almost all systems are modular.

Netsecure Automation smart homes utilise one app, available across Android and IOS to control the entire home. Whilst some providers may have four to five different applications to control various components we find that such systems simply increase the complexity and decrease the usability.




Asking the right questions



As a consumer, Netsecure Automation recommend their consultant of choice provide answers to the following areas:

  1. Internet connectivity, what type, what speed.
  2. Wired or wireless, do you have sufficient cabling or can wireless be utilised effectively.
  3. Are your devices secure. In the context of smart locks, are they using encrypted communications?
  4. How do you access your system when you’re not home. Is that method secure from attacks?

Your consultant needs to provide clear and concise answers to such questions. And be able to demonstrate this.

We are only too happy to provide free advice to customers, please give us a call or drop us an email if we can assist.

Building a smart home

by admin

How is a smart home built you ask? Almost all smart homes make use of a hub. Popular brands such as Savant, KNX and Control4 are no different. These hubs function as the brain of the network and act as a bus to pass messages between components to realise your smart home.

Netsecure Automation provides a hub with all it’s smart home products, we call this IHP, or the Intelligent Home Platform. This hub is where the devices, scenes, rules and logic happens. The hub is also used to provide connectivity to mesh networks such as Z Wave and Zigbee through the use of dedicated controllers. These controllers connect the wireless networks to the wired networks and allow communication to take place between devices. Our IHP is not an off the shelf product like the Fibaro HCL or the Vera Edge. Our hub is custom built to suit your requirements.

No two homes are the same and nor are the home automation systems within them. If you need a small home automation system for an apartment, then we size IHP for this use case. This is important to keep the system cost effective.

Depending on your integration requirements, almost always a IHP is supplied along with a wireless controller. This provides a solid foundation that allows almost any device to be integrated. These extremely low powered devices generally are placed out of site and mind. They are designed to never required upgrading. Further, you won’t need to buy a new unit when adding new devices, adding functionality or upgrading the software.

We promise.

Smart alerting

by admin

Did you know Netsecure Automation uses smart, presence sensing alerting? What does this mean you ask. Well, smart alerting takes into account where you are.

Netsecure Automation uses our presence sensing technology to send alerts to devices you need, when you need them. Send an email alert to your family or friends when you’re out of mobile reach – no problem! Speak to us about how we can help.

Cloud solutions, are they secure?

by admin

There are many solutions popping up in the market that use a subscription or per month charging model to provide  access into your cameras from remote locations such as Ring & Nest. These cloud solutions are aimed at making installations pain free but are they secure? A recent Herald Sun article reported that some Australian homes had their in home cameras being live streamed on the internet without their knowing and consent. This is one of many concerns with public cloud solutions. As a consumer you need these questions of your supplier:

  1. Where do you host your cloud solution? in Australia or abroad?
  2. How do I know my data is protected?
  3. Who has access to my information other than me?
  4. How do I verify my data is secure?
  5. what mechanisms are in place to protect my information

Netsecure Automation does not generally recommend public cloud solutions because the answers to these questions leave a lot to be desired. Rather, we use private cloud instances, setup by us but accessible only by you once deployed.

Talk to us about your concerns, we are only too happy to provide free advice.
