Start your security system with Honeywell
This Honeywell Evohome Security set contains everything you need for the foundation of your security system. A motion detector – immune to your pet – warns you on your smartphone via the Total Connect Comfort application if there is any suspicious activity. With the key fob, you can for instance activate and deactivate your system remotely. The door and window sensor detects break-in attempts and warns you. The required interface to connect to the internet and your smartphone is also included. This way, your devices can communicate with each other and send notifications to your smartphone.
Features that put you at ease
The different devices in the set offer you different functions that give you a solid foundation for your system.
The motion detector with a range of 10 x 12 m uses passive infrared technology (it detects shifts in temperature) to warn you by email if there is suspicious activity. It has been designed to ignore furry friends that weigh less than 36 kg. You can also remove the rubber part of the mirror to give the detector its full coverage so it also detects pets and other animals. It can be mounted at a distance of up to 20 m of the hub. Metal structures, walls, and ceilings can limit the range. We recommend installing 1 or 2 detectors per floor, in hallways and aimed at entry points to your home (doors, windows...)
The set also includes a door and window sensor: It detects if a door or window that it's protecting is open and will activate your siren – provided you have one – or will send you an email message. We recommend placing one on each window and access door of your house for optimal effectiveness.
Another part of the set is the key fob with the remote control. Using the different buttons, you can partially or fully deactivate the system (max. 150 m). For emergencies, the key fob also has a panic button. When you ask it, the LEDs will indicate the status of your alarm system (is it armed? If yes, is it fully armed? Or has it been deactivated?). It's very easy to fully/partially activate or deactivate your alarm system; simply press the corresponding button. Partially deactivating your security system is very convenient at night for instance. If you choose to partially deactivate your system, only the door and window sensors remain armed. The other sensors will be deactivated. You will only be woken up in case of an attempted break-in. You can also turn of your alarm system if the siren is triggered. Simply press the deactivation button. The hub will light up for a few seconds to let you know it has received your command. Simultaneously press the buttons for total and partial activation for two seconds to send out an emergency message. To check the status of your security system, press the light bulb button. The indicator light will turn on, indicating whether your system is armed or not.
Last but not least: the Honeywell Security interface is also included in the set to connect all your Honeywell Security accessories to the internet and communicate with your smartphone application. It's also called the hub. Thanks to this interface, you'll receive notifications in the case of alerts. The hub is the heart of your security system that you can develop and adapt according to your needs.
Good to know
All devices in the set are powered by batteries (CR123A for the majority). Only the key fob is powered by a CR2032A battery that will last several years. You'll receive an email when it's time to change the batteries. That ensures that your system will remain operational in case of a power cut. The different components of the set communicate with the interface on a radio frequency of 868 MHz.
And the set is very easy to install, since you won't need any complicated wiring (just use the screws or adhesive pad included with the set)! The only cable you'll need is the Ethernet cable you use to connect the hub to the internet via your router.
Using the Total Connect Comfort app – available for free on iOS and Android – you can remotely activate and deactivate your system, and it will send you email or SMS notifications in case of trouble (you have to turn on that last function).
Evohome Security devices are also compatible with Evohome heating! You can for instance activate your alarm system when you leave your home and turn of the heating automatically.
