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's Alarm Receiving Centre is NSI Gold accredited.

Guard Response

Verisure 3G control panel
3G Home hub

Photo detectors

The idea of a camera in your alarm system's PIRs is to enable the alarm centre to immediately check what caused an alarm and rapidly take the correct action.

  • Weight: 210 gr.
  • Power: Li-Polymer Battery
  • Autonomy: 36 months
  • Connectivity: Wireless, two way system
  • Guarantee: Lifetime

Verisure Camera PIR

motion detector

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.

Technical Features

  • 12 metre range infra-red movement sensor
  • Built-in flash for night vision
  • Sends image sequences
  • 3 arming modes
  • Insect-proof (helps to avoid false alarms)

Shock Sensor detectors

Installed to protect doors, windows and other strategic points or entry. You receive one with the basic kit which would typically be used for entry/exit door, i.e. front door.

  • Dimension: Sensor = 90 x 23 x 25 mm (height x width x depth)
    Magnet = 45 x 10 x 15 mm (height x width x depth)
  • Weight: 45 gr + 25 gr.
  • Power: Li-Polymer Battery
  • Autonomy: 36 months
  • Connectivity: Wireless, two way system
  • Guarantee: Lifetime
  • Price: Included in package
Verisure Door Contact

Door magnet

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.

Technical Features

  • Bidirectional
  • 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

Smart Key Reader

  • Power: Li-Polymer Battery
  • Autonomy: 36 months
  • Connectivity: Wireless, two way system
  • Guarantee: Lifetime
  • Price: Included in package
Verisure tag reader

Woman disarming Verisure alarm with smart key

The Smart Key Reader enables you to arm and disarm the alarm with your personal code or your SmartKey.

The Smart Key Reader has a built in panic button; if you press the two SOS keys, an alarm is directly sent to an operator at the Verisure alarm centre.

You can set the control panel to produce a signal and warn you if someone comes in through the entrance. You can also activate it in total mode, night mode, day mode or perimeter mode.

The Smart Key Reader can also be used as a door chime.

Technical Features

  • SmartKey reader
  • Status for devices (magnets, cameras)
  • Indicates a system fault
  • SOS

SmartKey

SmartKeys, Verisure's name for key fobs, switch the alarm off and on without having to remember yet another pass code. Hold the SmartKey against the control panel and it's done.

Price: Included in package.

Each SmartKey has a unique identity allowing you to check who enters and leaves your home and you can easily block a lost key or register a new one.

Verisure's Smart Keys

High-power Siren

The high-power siren is a freestanding unit that produces a 105 decibel alarm, loud enough to scare off burglars, as well as alerting the neighbours that the alarm has been triggered.

  • Weight: 150 gr.
  • Power: Batteries (AA batteries)
  • Autonomy: 36 months
  • Connectivity: Wireless, two way system
  • Guarantee: Lifetime
  • Price: Included in package
Verisure Siren

Verisure alarm internal siren mounted

The Verisure high-power siren also has a built-in thermometer which alerts the system if the internal temperature exceeds 65°c. The system will them alert the user via your mobile app as well as indicate on the Smart Key Reader.

Like ADT's alarm system, there is no external siren with Verisure. The theory being that external sirens do little more than annoy your neighbours, and are unnecessary. Instead, Verisure provide external warning signs as a deterrent to opportunist thieves and the ARC are monitoring your property 24/7 negating the need to alert anyone else.

Technical Features

  • 105 decibel alarm
  • Built in thermometer
  • Tamper proof

Deterrent Signs

Deterrent alarm stickers can be placed on doors and windows as part of burglar prevention. Without an external siren these stickers are the only visual deterrent.

  • Weight: 50 gr.
  • Guarantee: Lifetime
  • Price: Included in package
Verisure Deterrent Signs

Property protected by alarm signs

The signs come with adhesive labels for doors and windows are made from polycarbonate with UV protection so high visibility and quality should be retained over time.

Verisure's ZeroVision fog device

Verisure's Zero Vision

The Zero Vision product is remotely activated by Verisure's 24/7 monitoring team when they receive a "confirmed" alarm activation. Once activated the Zero Vision product rapidly discharges dense fog to engulf the entire room within 40 seconds.

The likelihood is; when an intruder sees the fog filling the room, they're likely make a sharp exit before they can no longer see the exit.

Verisure response time

The Verisure Alarm Receiving Center can check when an alarm goes off and decide how to respond in less than 45 seconds.

Guard response
