ERA Homeguard Smart/wireless alarm
Great wireless solution . The solar siren means no climbing ladders to replace batteries along with an ear piecing alarm.
Everything is controlled via the app however the manual remotes will ensure you can disarm the alarm should your Wi-fi go ‘offline’. The SMS back up also allows for continuous protection in the event of a power cut.
All the family have the app and I can see who has armed/disarmed and I have also set up x2 zones to allow for a home zone when we are still moving around downstairs.
Just take your tome to test the sensors in ‘test’ mode and also don’t be disturbed when the PIR sensors do not trigger motion in test mode as they go into sleep mode to save battery if you keep on trying to trigger them continually.
My only gripe is that the range is not as stated and you will need a range extender to cover your whole house.
Overall I would recommend.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. We do sell a lot of HomeGuard kits and have not needed to sell the wireless extenders to many people - I am sorry if your home required one.
App needs a lot of work
The alarm system itself is OK albeit a bit temperamental with stuck sensors now and again, but it is let down by the app (IOS). The app is not optimised for an iPad screen, but the main issue is with the logging and alerting of sensors. Because of the aforementioned quirk with sensors thinking they are still open, I often get a rather unhelpful push or text message stating that a one or more sensors is not closed. WHICH ONE? If you arm it using a mobile device via the app, the app pops up a message with the exact sensor and asks you to acknowledge it, so the system and the app knows exactly what sensor is stuck. So with this information, why isn’t this logged somewhere, or pushed through with the alert I get if armed via the keypad or a remote? The detail is in there, so why not use it? It’s kind of really important information to be given otherwise you have to walk around the property checking and resetting every single sensor. A lot more thought needs to be put into the features of the app making full use of the data received from the main control unit.
Major design flaw renders this app useless on iPhones!
This app should be great (in fact it is for setting up the system) but, and it is a HUGE but, it has a massive flaw on iPhones.
The disarm/arm/home buttons on an iPhone should not be at the bottom of the screen. If you have an iPhone from the past few years with no home button, to return to the home page you have to swipe up from the bottom to the phone. It is way to easy to catch one of the HomeGuard Pro’s buttons whilst doing this and I am forever either setting the alarm when I am actually in the house or turning the alarm off when I am away from home and I have just been checking in on the system. Not ideal... Please consider changing this!
