Urban areas have also become the focus of attention for crime. Alarms are a necessity in any residential or remodeling project. Breakdown Sensors or motion detection sensors trigger notifications whenever there is an attempt of unauthorized intrusion.

More sophisticated sensors, use infrared rays to protect gardens and perimeters. Furthermore, biometric access to certain areas of the house or garage doors locks can be added. All this is possible to monitor, if a robust automation system is integrated. In this way, any emergency can be notified via SMS or e-mail to home residents and contracted security services.
