Security doors for remote areas from Secure House

Security doors in remote areas

We often receive calls enquiring about installing security doors in homes, offices and other premises located in remote areas.

Achieving a higher than usual level of security is paramount in such locations since there may be no-one in the vicinity for days on end, thus giving would-be intruders the opportunity to gain unfettered access without ever being noticed.

Security doors with facial recognition systems from Secure House

Unlock your front door…with your face!

Smart home security is undoubtedly a multi-million pound business. From surveillance cameras and video doorbells, to steel security doors and automated secure window shutters, there is a wide variety of products on the market all designed to deter intruders and prevent them from gaining access to our property.

There are many different ways we can protect our homes and choosing a security door is still one of the most effective. Fitting the door with a high quality, multi-point locking system is also imperative. But how about combining all of that and installing a fully motorised security door with facial recognition?

Facial recognition is one of the fastest growing smart home security products with more and more homeowners considering its application.

“As pioneers of facial recognition, we recently displayed a working example of a fully motorised security door with facial recognition at IFSEC 2019,” comments Edmundas Zaunieravicius, managing director of Secure House. “It generated a huge amount of interest amongst everyone who visited our stand.”

How does a facial recognition system work?

Often referred to as biometric technology, facial recognition systems work by taking an image of a face and ‘predicting’ whether the face matches another face stored within the system itself. The technology compares the data and accurately provide potential matches irrespective of facial expression.

Facial recognition systems rely on a smart camera, usually installed within the security door itself, that will associate an individual face with an individual identity. In order to implement successful facial recognition, you must first programme the system by informing it which face belongs to which name. Anyone you want to authorise to enter your home – family, friends or colleagues – must have a profile in the system before they can use the system.

Many systems also include an alarm that will notify you if someone walks up to your home and tries to gain entry, day or night.

Benefits of implementing a facial recognition system

Implementing a security door with a facial recognition system brings with it numerous benefits.

  • No keys are required. Just ask yourself how many times you’ve lost, misplaced or forgotten your door key and the advantage of not needing them is immediately clear!
  • High degree of accuracy. The system will accurately determine whether the person trying to enter the property matches the database of people pre-authorised to enter. If not, an alarm will sound alerting people to the potential intruder.
  • Time saving automation. The inclusion of multiple faces is an option with most systems. This facilitates easy access for all family members as required. And there’s no need to answer the doorbell!

Facial recognition systems are highly affordable and can be combined with a huge range of different styles, sizes and models of security door. If you’re looking for a really smart technology that will help you to protect loved ones and offer unrivalled peace of mind, investing in a motorised security door with a facial recognition system is an absolute must.

What's the best material for a front door?

What is the best material for front doors?

Front doors come in all sorts of different materials and many are manufactured using a combination of materials. But what is the best material for a front door?

It’s one the most frequently asked questions we are asked here at Secure House and, in our opinion, it has to be a door made from steel. Our home security doors are the most advanced front door solution on the market today, and they’re our undoubtedly our best selling and most popular doors with customers.

Steel doors v. timber doors

Highly affordable and energy efficient (so they will save you money on all fronts!), our steel doors feature all the design benefits of a timber door plus they offer all the advantages of a steel door. These advantages include the fact that they are burglar and fire resistant, plus they also deliver excellent noise reduction, thermal, water and wind insulation.

Timber doors are always visually stunning which make them popular with many people. On the downside, even though they are often made from hardwood, they don’t provide the same level of security as a steel door; they also need to be protected from the elements so will need to be repainted or refinished regularly.
