Palo Alto, CA – August 11, 2020 – abode systems, a Nice group company and leader in DIY smart home security, today announces an exciting partnership with Kings Secure Technologies, one of the UK’s largest independent fire and security providers and specialists to bring the abode smart home security system to the United Kingdom.
abode believes in the power of technology to keep customers safe through products that live and grow with the user, enabling them to secure their home on their terms. The top-rated DIY smart security system was designed with flexibility and ease of use at the forefront and features a simple installation process that can be done without the help of a professional installer. The modular nature of the security system allows users to select the components they want to add-on to their security system. As a new entrant to the UK market, the abode smart security system will be offered to UK customers through www.goabode.co.uk and managed by Kings Secure Technologies.
The abode Smart Security Kit includes:
- (1) abode gateway – the hub of the system which features a 93 dB siren, 4G connectivity for cellular backup capabilities and the ability to add up to 160 smart devices.
- (2) Mini Door/Window Sensors – to protect against the most common entry point for burglars/intruders.
- (1) Motion Sensor – to provide a 110° field of motion detection and trigger motion-based alerts.
- (1) Keyfob – to provide quick and easy remote arm/disarm of the security system even if it is offline.
Designed to put the power of home security back into the hands of homeowners, the abode Smart Security Kit supports a range of monitoring options to best suit individual needs. The solution can be deployed as a self-monitored DIY security kit or augmented by a professional monitoring centre for 24/7 peace of mind. Flexible, on-demand monitoring is also available in packages of 3- or 7-days to keep the home secure during a weekend away or while on holiday. Professional monitoring is available to UK customers through the Kings Secure Technologies’ accredited monitoring centre.
