Sam, could you tell us more about your background?

I was born in Paris, France, and at the age of 2 years old I moved to Israel with my family. Today I’m 33 years old, I love my work, and I have had an interest in IT, smart home systems, and security camera systems since 2000.

My company’s mission is to make your home or business safer and more accessible.

What are “smart” homes?

Having a Smart Home means that all electronic devices can be controlled via a hub (main hardware – Brain), all from one piece of software, so instead of going to each app for each device, we have one app that does everything for you. You can control your home from your smart phone/ tablet.

You can contact your smart home on the Internet to make sure the air condition is on, the central heating pool is on, the curtains are down, and a gas fire is roaring in the grate when you get home.

How are smart homes evolving over time?

Smart home can save you time and money by enabling the remote monitoring and management of appliances and systems, such as lighting and heating.

What are the most common installations you perform?

Our most common installations are smart home installation and security camera systems.

How can your services improve business efficiency?

You can view the business from anywhere and control your appliances and electrical outlets; you can also keep an eye on your employees to see if they are really doing their jobs.

How can intercom systems installation benefit home owners?

The addition of video to the intercom adds another safety layer to the household. Occupants can easily ascertain the identity of their visitors and detect if there is any suspicious activity occurring outdoors. You can also unlock your door/ gate and open it from your smart phone. You can also record any suspicious activity outside your home.
