Toronto-based Skylink has developed a do-it-yourself (DIY) home alarm system kit that’s controlled by an Internet Hub, and comes with a motion sensor, keychain remote, and two door or window sensors.
Users connect the Hub to a wireless router, and the system will coordinate the activities of all receivers and sensors through an iOS or Android smartphone app. Customers can arm and disarm the alarm system from anywhere, and receive a push notification if the door or window sensor detects motion. The app can also be used to view events that set off alarms via live video monitoring. Read more
