Home Control in a listed Farmhouse
How do you do Home Control in a Listed Farmhouse – well?
Home Control is very important but so is subtlety. Imagine you have just moved into your beautiful 14th Century Listed Farmhouse. You are embracing the period features, relieved that you donʼt need to knock any walls down (which would be virtually impossible with planning regulations anyway), and you are now planning your summer holiday abroad for two weeks. Two weeks away from your home. You are in a desirable location, and your house could be vulnerable with no-one there to monitor it, but surely security systems are both expensive and intrusive to the eye? You really donʼt want unsightly cameras ruining the look of your house – not very in-keeping with the 14th Century feel of the house is it?
At Instant Protect we are used to dealing with unique buildings and structures, be it a state of the art office block or a 14th Century listed cottage. We develop a bespoke solution to every situation to ensure the security of our clients, but also keeping it in line with the aesthetics of the building.
Our security cameras can be the same colour as the beams, meaning they blend in with the surroundings, thus avoiding a big intrusive camera immediately catching your eye. A number of LED security lights around the property also ensures adequate lighting for the client, but also enough light from a security point of view.
We can also install a system that gives you the ability to be able to control the security of your home from anywhere in the world. Our Smart Home advanced system allows you to control who is at the gate via your mobile phone, and if appropriate, open it, all the while monitoring the cameras to see who is on the property.
Smart Home is a simple feature, where you have home control from anywhere in the world. To make you more secure, while saving money and most valuably saving you time. If you forgot the dog walker was coming round, or having some building work carried out while you are away – simply use your phone to unlock the door or gate, unset the alarm and allow access to your property. This means you are always in touch with your home so you know what is going on, and more importantly, who is in it.
Planning Permission is not normally required for installing a security alarm, though if you live in a listed building or conservation area you should check with your Local Planning Authority. At Instant Protect we can advise whether this is necessary when we discuss your requirements.
Instant Protect are specialists in unique joined up solutions for all types of property. Whether it is a house in London or a cottage in country, we can offer a solution that is right for your individual needs, meaning you can enjoy your holiday with complete peace of mind.
