BT and Intamac have announced the completion of a pilot project providing home security solutions through the broadband network. With ever increasing broadband penetration, households are taking advantage of their Internet connection to help secure their homes.
The two companies have partnered together to produce a solution called BT Homesafe which provides users with home monitoring services at far lower costs than traditional burglar alarms. The system communicates over the broadband connections and allows its users to remotely view images from CCTV cameras as well as remotely manage sensors and notifications by text message, phone call or e-mail. The base system is available from £219.99. Additional sensors including fire, power failure and flooding can also be added.
