Even after years of development and simplification, existing home automation and security systems are cumbersome to install and use. Most of the current wireless security and automation systems need a hub and accessories in order to connect to the cloud through your home Wi-Fi or a cellular module. Hubs add another point of complexity and failure. Securmate is the only wireless entrance sensor in the market that connects to the cloud directly through Wi-Fi without the need for an intermediate hub or additional accessories.
On account of its architecture, Securmate is:
The Securmate entrance sensor in combination with its smartphone app and cloud service forms a simple and portable do-it-yourself security system. Attach Securmate to any entrance and get alerted on your smartphone when the entrance opens/closes. Securmate works anywhere with Wi-Fi, so no monthly service fees. It's that simple!
Securmate also connects to popular smarthome products through third party integrations like IFTTT allowing you to enhance the system to serve your home automation needs. A Securmate trigger actuates products like plugs, bulbs, cameras, thermostats, appliances, blinds etc... to create custom scenarios.

With current security and home automation solutions, you are often given pre-canned solutions that may or may not work for your needs. By connecting Securmate with IFTTT, you can access a wide variety of other products and use cases, so you have a system that fits your lifestyle and needs.
For security, you may want to use a smart light or siren that works with IFTTT, as shown in the main video, to indicate an intrusion.
You can also capture video footage beginning the instant your entrance is breached.
Unlike using the smartphone as a remote control, change in the state of doors and windows can be used to automatically trigger actions.
Securmate allows you to further qualify these triggers based on the time of day. The above applet shows how a Securmate trigger is configured to occur when the owner opens their bedroom door between 6:00 AM and 8:30 AM, upon waking up.
Just as you can automate your morning routine based on triggers from your bedroom door one can also automate actions based on triggers from say your front door when you leave or arrive back from work.
