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. It makes little sense to send a voice alert to an Amazon Echo if you’re overseas on holidays. Nor does it make sense to send a mobile alert if you are home.

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.
