People are afraid in their own homes. They are particularly fearful of being broken into and being unable to do anything about it.
Current monitored alarm systems are
> Very expensive and
> Limited in scope and
> Do not provide the responses people need
> Designed with individual households in mind
We will provide a new range of services, integrating emerging open standard Internet of Things (IOT) technologies with cloud computing, to fully monitor homes, generate real time alerts to chosen individuals, the community and the emergency services and enable responses to those alerts.
The system will have five high level services:
> Panic Button alerting
> Home Monitoring and alerting
> Response to alerts
> Forum for sharing of community based information
> Data collection, sharing and sale
Checkmate has been accepted by Neighborhood watch to trial their app.
