Benefits of a Smart Surveillance
Camera-equipped motion sensors
In case of an alarm, the camera-equipped motion sensors take an automatic photograph and send it to your smart device. Of course you can always check out the images whenever you like, be it Christmas Eve or 5 A.M. in the morning. In order to get the images in your smart device, download the free "My Elas" app from the App Store or Google Play. You can also view the images by logging in to the self-service site from your computer of smartphone. So you would always know what is happening in your business – how many clients you are serving, are the employees present, etc.
In the event of an alarm, the alarm information is immediately sent to the control centre. To ensure double security, the employee of the alarm response centre also notifies the client immediately – so you will be aware of the alarm even if you do not have your smart device with you. A crew will be sent out, if necessary, and only the client can cancel the decision to react. You can also order notifications to your e-mail and view the event log on the self-service site.
Gas and water leakage detectors
It is possible to link municipal gas and water leakage detectors with the Smart Surveillance for Small Businesses to avoid greater damage. The detectors work even when the security system is switched off.
Controlling the surveillance service from a smart device
The service can be controlled from smart devices with iOS and Android operation systems, and also from your desktop computer. For example, you can switch the security system on and off from your phone wherever you are. This allows you, for example, to let in an employee who has forgotten his/her code, or someone without a security code. Forgetting to switch on the security system is also no longer a problem – if you leave in a hurry and forget, then you can always switch on the alarm on your way home, for example.
Remote control of electrical devices
You can connect other devices on the premises with the system and switch them on and off from your computer, tablet or PC. For example, you can switch on the office’s heating system, coffee maker or any other electrical device in advance from your phone while driving to work.
Less frequent visits of the technician
As the system is directly connected with the G4S server, out technical support can quickly identify any possible failures. This means that you do not need to call for a technician for regular maintenance, but only when there is a problem. Maintenance is included in the price of the devices and does not increase the service fee.
The installation and maintenance of the devices is included in the price. More devices can be connected with the system, if necessary.
Devices included in this price:
- 1 central device with an integrated keyboard and indoor siren
- 1 camera-equipped motion sensor
- 1 door sensor
- 1 smoke detector
Records movements in the room and takes photographs of the object that set off the alarm. It is possible to request images at any time. An animal-proof version is also available.
The central unit registers all sensor signals and transmits an alarm to the G4S control centre. The central unit has a built-in internal siren and a GSM modem. In the event of a power outage the central unit runs on emergency electrical power.
The keyboard is used to activate and deactivate the surveillance system of the site with a unique code.
The smoke detector reacts to the appearance of smoke in the room and signals the central unit. The sensor also gives an alert if the system has not been activated.
The part of the detector placed against the floor detects any water leakages and signals the central device. The detector sends signals even when the security system is switched off.
The remote control enables long-distance activation and deactivation of the surveillance system. This is a convenient solution for children and elderly people.
When joining G4S Home Surveillance, affix ‘G4S valvab’ (Under the surveillance of G4S) stickers everywhere visible from outside – doors, windows and, if necessary, elsewhere. The stickers have a discouraging effect on thieves and help the patrol unit find your home more quickly in the event of an alarm.
The siren is activated when the surveillance system registers an alarm. The sound of the siren attracts attention and makes it uncomfortable to do anything in the room.
The siren is activated when the surveillance system registers an alarm. The noise caused by the siren is sufficiently loud to attract the attention of people in the vicinity and makes it impossible for perpetrators to continue their activities unnoticed.
The motion sensor notifies the central unit of movement in the room. A pet-proof motion sensor is also available.
The magnet sensor signals the central unit when the front door is being opened.
Reacts to carbon monoxide and signals the central device. The detector sends signals even when the security system is switched off.
