Secure your home with Silvan's Secure

Silvan Labs, a Bangalore based company who are leaders in home automation based on contemporary technologies such as cloud services and the Internet of Things, recently came up with their latest customer specific product called "Secure" 

We at Techophillia had the opportunity to talk to Mr Avinash, who is the CEO of Silvan and discuss more about IOT in the country along with their latest product offering. 

Secure, is  a new age wireless security system for making lives of people more safe, secure and comfortable. To understand it better, it is what we call converting your home into a Smart Home. What does it take to make your home into a Smart Home? "Just an internet connection and we'll do the rest", Says Avinash. 

With Secure, one can control or protect their house with the help of the internet and a mobile phone by sitting any where in the world. That is what we call as the Internet of things, because it connects you with any appliance in your house, through the internet.

With its sleek look, the device fits well into the living space. Each home connects over the Internet to Silvan’s Integrated Property Service Manager (IPSM). With the IPSM, the security and safety of each home is centrally monitored by a security agency. Home owners can opt for the agency to keep a close eye on their homes when they are busy or unavailable, thus getting the agency actively involved in the security of their homes.  

We at Silvan strive to give our customers the best products and services when it comes to home security.  Home Automation has evolved a lot with time and security being the major aspect cannot be ignored. The product is the result of extensive research and efforts put in by the team and we hope that this product offers our customer the best security solution that they are looking for.  

The SECURE system comes with an app that works on the Android and iOS platforms, to let you configure, manage and monitor the security of your homes from wherever you are. Security systems are typically difficult to install. However, with SECURE, installation is quick and easy, and could even be done by the home owner himself.  It connects with the sensors and the home broadband router wirelessly, thus removing the need for additional wiring.

What Mr Avinash also focuses on is the way the Indian Real Estate market is growing and also the growing interest in making homes secure enough by the consumers. Until a few years, the idea/ concept of smart homes was only limited to a few thousands, but today everyone is opting for it because it lets you control your house remotely. He adds that by 2016, about 60-70% of the homes in Bangalore will be fully automated with atleast one form of home automation. 

When someone talks about Home Automation, the first thought that pops into one's head is the cost. This is where Silvan stands out. They help you cut on the costs by giving customised automation systems. Something like a point to point solution. The costs with Secure can be as low as Rs 20,000 for turning any one space into an automated one. 

With a product called "Retrofit", which is part of the "Secure" segment, the installation takes less than 10 minutes and doesn't even need any chipping/Chiseling in your house. 

Secure would soon be available on leading E-Commerce portals and Home Decor websites to buy it off the shelves.
