Securing your family wirelessly

With the recent uptick in certain categories of crime in Bermuda, security is becoming a much-discussed topic in Bermuda. People want to protect their families and homes yet dread the thought of disruption to their fast pace of the modern lifestyle or their home structure when installing home security systems.

When walls are no barrier

It is no secret that wiring a Bermuda home comes with some challenges and wireless systems can face significant obstacles when it comes to our strong Bermuda-stone and block construction. The new BSG Gateway System, a wireless security system, has been tested successfully in multiple international jurisdictions and is now available locally through the Bermuda Security Group.  This system is known to have the longest range of wireless communications without need for repeaters, which means seamless connections throughout the home for a powerful residential security system.

Discreet, secure, simple installation

This is the first professional security panel designed to deliver interactive security and home automation services from a customer’s mobile device.  The BSG system architecture knocks down costly hurdles faced when installing a security system. Unlike a hybrid panel, it’s not necessary to pull wires for peripheral devices or other sensors. It also eliminates the need to compete for entrance wall space near a power outlet, a challenge for existing self-contained security offerings. This system can be installed in an office, entertainment centre or even a closet. This reduces challenges and costs, while providing the benefits of locating the panel in a discreet, secure location. 

Security at your fingertips

You can control and monitor most aspects of your system from your iOS or Android Mobile device and/or your computer and the BSG Web Portal. Although you have the option of traditional type, wireless keypads mounted on your walls, it is not a requirement.  You can have a portable keypad, you can use your Kindle Fire, iPad, etc.  You are in control – you have the choice!

Every BSG Gateway system comes standard with a secured and supervised Ethernet connection. This link enables Central Station reporting and interactive controls using the homeowner’s broadband if desired. Optional WiFi and Secured Wireless communications are available providing primary or back up communication channels for both BSG Monitoring Centre reporting and interactive services.

BSG offers all this plus a great variety of sensors for monitoring many aspects of your home and lifestyle including:

  • Door and Window Sensors + Tilt Sensors
  • Passive Infrared Motion Detectors
  • Glass Break Detectors
  • Panic Buttons/Pendants
  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Sensors
  • Temperature Range Sensors (High or Low Temperature)
  • Flood and Water Detectors
