Skylink introduces DIY monitoring solution

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

TORONTO—Skylink, a provider of DIY home safety solutions, recently introduced an alarm system kit that allows end users to secure and monitor their homes, according to a news release from the company.

The SkylinkNet Alarm System Kit is controlled by an Internet Hub and includes a motion sensor, keychain remote, and two door window sensors. An app integrated with the system allows users to have complete remote control of the solution through iOS- and Android-compatible devices.

If a door or window sensor detects motion, the Internet hub sends a push notification through the app, according to the release. The app also enables end users to view events that set off alarms through live video monitoring, which can be observed through a smartphone. The solution is backed by a backup battery, the release noted, and in the event of a power failure, all units and sensors will continue to work as a local alarm with an external siren.
