What Does Verisure Offer?

In short; Verisure offers a professionally and quick installed wireless smarthome alarm system suitable for any home or business with a GSM signal.

The main hub and its components look great. Really Great. Sleek design and white finish -- it's almost APPLE like (...the brand, not the fruit). We'd go as far as saying it's probably the most aesthetically pleasing alarm system we've seen to date.

It's smart phone enabled, meaning you can remotely set/unset and view the goings-on at home captured through the surveillance camera detectors, all via an app.

The alarm system is not only designed to protect your property and possessions from intruders, but also act as a complete smart home monitoring package, protecting against flood, carbon monoxide and temperature changes.

Verisure Camera PIR
Motion Sensor PIR with Camera

When the alarm activates, the camera (mounted inside the detector) takes a sequence of pictures and sends them immediately to the alarm receiving centre (ARC). The Verisure staff at the ARC are trained to rapidly evaluate and escalate the situation by alerting the nearest guard to attend property (if required), or close down the activation if it's deemed a false alarm.

For pet owners, the good news is you can adjust the sensitivity of the detector to take your pets into account. This allows your pets to move freely in your home even when the alarm is activated.

The cameras are also fitted with a flash so can be used at night, although we found picture quality decreases compared to those taken in day light.

Verisure Door/Window Sensor
Door/Window Sensor with Vibration Detection

The Verisure shock sensor detector is actually much more than a traditional magnetic door contact/reed switch. The Verisure shock sensor detector uses advanced piezoelectric technology which detects vibration too. This allows you to part-set the system, while you are inside the property, for perimeter protection only. The system would then not only alert you to doors or windows being opened but detect the intrusion before it happens, thanks to the "shock sensor" technology.

  • Bi-directional
  • 1 infra-red LED for detection/reset
  • Dual detection: Single and repeated impact
  • Advanced piezoelectric technology
  • Advanced environmental vibration filter
  • Double tamper sensor: wall and opening
