Home Security and Interactive Services

Proprietary security panels will give way to IP centric gateways or controllers that run the security alarm manager as one of several or even many applications in the home or business.  

Consumer Video Security

Many of the technologies used in consumer video security are adopted from those implemented in the broad consumer electronics market. As advanced consumer technologies are introduced, market leaders such as LOREX will continue to adopt and integrate them in their video security solutions.

HOME HEARTBEAT®: Peace of Mind through Wireless Home Monitoring

For most people, their home is their most valuable investment. As a result, having the knowledge of what's going in their home, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, would be invaluable to many homeowners. In addition, to be able to be immediately notified of a concern in their home would provide further Peace of Mind for any homeowner.

The M1Gold is a very economical and easy to use solution for your every day installations and many of today's advance home control and automation needs. It can bring your company into the automation market without a big investment in time or arduous training.

A New Use for an Old VCR

Whereas most other sensors have range limitations, Video Motion Detection has the advantage that any image in the field of view of the video camera can be analyzed for movement and alerts triggered.

X-10 and Motion Detectors

This extension to our X-10 system has now been running reliably for over two years, and it has the added advantage of giving us advance warning when visitors are coming and when the boys get back from school.

Omni LT Security and Home Automation System

In addition to it's security functions, this is a full blown home automation controller that can make your life a lot easier and more convenient. It will control your powerline lighting and appliance components, thermostats, hard wired devices and more. It is also expandable if you find there is a need to add to the system ... which you probably will once you get hooked on automation :-)

CETI Cam 100

The all in one unit contains a high resolution CCD camera and an embedded web server. There are inputs for 3 analogue camera's (CCTV). Other features include an interface for adding on a pan/tilt/zoom function as well as adding a motion sensor. All this can be controlled with a standard web browser ... no additional software needed.

X-Ray Vision Internet Kit

X-ray vision remote software can be downloaded from and used to view your camera images from anywhere via an internet connection. Just enter your home computer's IP address, type in your password and you are able to see the images from the remote camera ( updated every 10 seconds to 2 minutes).

Garage Door Sentry

This device could give you some peace of mind by telling you that the garage door is closed at night. As we all know ... other family members are always the ones who leave it open. If you have to go outside to check every night the garage door sentry (at the reasonable price of $79.00) could be the solution.

X10 Alarm System

I started to investigate the best way to interface X-10 to the outside world and have found the micro controller chip to be the best solution, since not only the X-10 connectivity could be addressed by the micro controller, but also the logic of the project itself, resulting in a device with very few parts.
