I DREAMED A HOUSE THAT NOW IT COULD BE REAL

casa soñada dreamed house

All of us have fantasized with the house of our dreams. A house with seaviews, a place surrounded by big forests in the middley of the valley or a penthouse with the skyline of a great city under our foots. Beyond the locations, we dream with a confortable home that makes every day life easier. If we get to feel safe, of course it´s our dreamed house.

Because dreams could be true, we bring you some element you have to bear in mind when you find your dreamed house. Little details and elements to your home that adds comfort and safety to become a top house.

SMART INTERCOM

Imagine you don´t have to wake up to open the house when people visit you. There are intercom systems that allow to manage everything from your smartphone. From somewhere you are, inside or outside of the house, you could answer the call and open the door if you have to.

Nobody is going to make you to stop your favourite book or TV serie.

MECATRONIC ACCESS SYSTEM

Mecatronics? What are we talking about? Think about a system that you don´t need a key to open your home. From here, it will open a great number of options. Why do we open with a proximmity card/tag? Wait, better if do we use a keypad to setup a access key? Even better, what do you think if we open the house by our smartphone via bluetooth?

Everything is possible with a meatronic system. Besides, you could limit the time and user to access at home. Do you control everything!

AUTOMATIC GATES

Your dreamed home shall have automatic gate, of course. We don´t think you want to go out of your car, open the gate, go into the car and go out again to close the gate. Get an automatic gate and you don´t move to open it.

From here, you could choose to open by a remote control, your smarthpone and even with your license plate if you use a license plate recognition´s system. Have you ever seen something comfortest to enter at your home?

SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS

If your ideal house is located in a wonderful place and it has all the facilities, just only it needs to be safe. For that, you could install a surveillance system.

Now you´ll find a high quality cameras that record so good in the darknest nights. Also, if you have an ample gardens, why don´t you install floodlights? If you feel save, you´ll rest like anyone.

ANTI COVID-19 SYSTEMS

COVID 19

At pandemic era we are living, to avoid the contact in common areas is beening essential to control Covid-19 spreading. Now, it´s very important to have automatic systems. We are going to bring you some systems to help you with prevention and control needs.

AUTOMATE YOUR GATE

If you want to acces to your home or urbanization without a contact, you could get it easily with an automatic gate. You have to use your reomote control and you could avoid to touch common element, therefore, an important infection focus.

Today there are a lot of designs, materials and ways to works. A great range of options to choose the best to your needs.

CONTROL FROM OUR HAND

We take a step further automation and for it, we add the direct management from our smartphone.

Today there are a lot of applications and system to manange the entrance, exist form your smartphone directly. You control everything and touch nothing, it´s perfect to pandemic time.

CAR NUMBER PLATE RECOGNITION

If you don´t want to use any device to go into your urbanization, then the carn number plate recognition system is your best option.

A camera, located at the entrance gate or barrier, takes a pic of your car number plate. If it´s in the system´s data base, the gate/barrier will be opened without any device. Zero contact, zero exposure to Covid-19

PROXIMITY SYSTEM TO YOUR GATES

Pedestrain gates are a critical point this pandemic era. In this time, we tried to open with our foot, elbow; we pushed by the keys or something. Always we avoided to touch the handle of the gate.

There are opening systems by proximity devices. It works by a reader located close to the gate. When you bring closer the tag, the system starts and the gate opens. It´s a way to don´t use the handle anymore.

ADVICES TO PREVENT THE SQUATTING

ocupación

Squatting becomes, last years, a big worry. This concers affects to owners, neighbours and spanish society at all. All of us meet families with second residences, close to the beach or mountain, that are exposed along  the year to this problem.

The late answer form Spanish Tribunals and squatter´s impunity bring to squatting the easiest options to enjoy a house without costs. Prevention is the best way to avoid and fight this situation. We bring you some advices to prevent squatting.

CLOSED GATES AND WINDOWS

It seems obviousness, but there are a lo of houses and plots that are been ocuppied beacuse the community´s external gates aren´t good locked. Other worry situation is when the automatic gate are been opened, by neighbourds negligence, and external people could come in to the urbanization.

To avoid these situations we just need the colaboration of neighbourdhood. Also, there are a lot of automatic gates that ensure the perfect closing for good price.

KEYS CONTROL TO ACCESS

To get an access system that prohibit the keys/fobs copies by unauthorised people, it´s the focus to incease our security.

En  nuestra web puedes encontrar  el sistema perfecto para evitar la copia no autorizada de llaves, Winkhaus BlueCompact,  y mandos que no se pueden duplicar sin permiso,

Visit our website and you´find a perfect system to avoid the unauthorised key copies, Winkhaus BlueCompact, and fobs that couldn´t be copied without authorisation.

SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS

If we have a surveillance system installed, we´ll help to decrease the old disagreements between neighbours. The scratchs or punctures on the cars arent´s usual as time beofre.

A surveillance cameras in communities avoid to unathorised poeople to access and squat the houses. Squatters avoid to force entrances to open when they are under surveillance system.

ALARM SYSTEMS

It´s better prevent than treat it, and the alarm´s cost, in this moment, are very cheap. You could get one since 49€ per month.

If you have a squatting, the alarm system sends an alert, at the moment, to receiver central where they verify if it´s a robbery or squatting.

INCREASE YOUR SAFETY AT LOW COST

seguridad a bajo coste

To feel safe at low cost; there are many ways to get our community or private house safer and we don´t need to spend a lot of money. The technologic advances and its democratization, with well habits, give us the posibility of create safety areas without clefts.

ADVANCES AND HABITS

  • To get a remote control or keys system, with unique codes, where you could associate the owner and property: It´s a way to locate and cancel it if you lose it or it´s stolen. Otherwise, we have to know if our system has an installation code. This code prevent the external copies of remote controls. All of this helps you to increase your safety.
  • To be sure, when we go out or come in, that the gate is completly closed. In this sense, an automatic gate could be programmed with an automatic closing, and it helps you to be safer.
  • We could complete our safety if we install a surveillance system. Now, you could find a lot of high quality cameras with low price, and they could be watched by smartphone. It great move to control what happen everytime and watch the recorded images from 30 days ago until now.
  • Resolve the darkness areas by good illumination is a great dissuasive move. Led illuminations help you to reduce the consumption and prices.

MORE SAFETY AT LOW COST

Some studies show that streamlining of illuminiation, in shared areas of communities, reduces the crime levels. If we add the use of wite light, we´ll get to be safer with less cost because this kind of light is characterize by effectiveness, sustainability and long lifetime. We´ll have a very well lighting areas and a reduced price.

For example, a led light uses 40% of electricty than a traditional light bulb. We could increase tha lifetime 60 times more than a traditional bulb. Also, we could reduce the carbon emissions, helping to preserve the environment.

In this connection, the led illumination system could be completed by a movement scanners. It means that lightbulbs will be activated when they detect a movement. We´ll avoid they are unnecessary on.

A mix of habits and technologic advances made us feel safer and don´t pay a lot fo money for that.

HOW YOU APPLY DATA PROTECTION ON CCTV INSTALLATION

protección de datos en cctv

With the new Data Protection Regulation, last 25th May of 2018, the surveillance sector has changed some elements. We have to be clear with our steps to comply with the law, when we are installing the CCTV system and with the recorder images from it.

This new regulation is loooking for to be adapted to Regulation (UE) 2016/679 European Parlament and Council of 27th April 2016, about the protection of personal datas and free flow of them

In this article we´ll see how the surveillance sector is affected by new Data Protection Regulation.

BYE BYE NOTIFICATIONS

Since year, when we installed CCTV system we had to inform to Agencia Española de Protección de DAtos. NOTA system, did remember? guided us to fullfil the form and after that we sent to AEPD.

Now, with new Data Protection Regulation, you don´t need this notification. Only you have to fullfil an internal document. It´s explained in 30th article of the new regulation.

30th ARTICLE

Each responsible person, or agent, takes note of the activities done by his responsability. This register shall have the next information:

  • The name and contact deails of responsible, co-responsible, the agent and data protection delegate.
  • The purpose of the system.
  • The categories description of interested, personal datas of categories, the recipients data, third countries and international organizations too.
  • In case of datas transfer to a third country and international organization, we have to inform about that country and/or organization and the documentation (49th article, 1st section, 2nd paragraph)
  • Preview perdiods to delete the data categories, when it could be possible.
  • Description of security measures (32nd article, 1st section) when it could be possible.

The register shall have:

  • Description of security measures (32nd article, 1st section) when it could be possible.

Above information has to be on paper and electronic format. Also, the responsibles have to make aviable to Authority.

Everything, looking until now, isn´t obligatory to companies with less than 250 employees. Unless it is a risk to freedoms and rights of them.

HOW TO APPLY THE NEW REGULATION TO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS

We´re going to stand out the aspects of new regulation that affect to surveillance installation:

  • Cameras location: recorder imagenes have to respect the relax and private areas.
  • Screens location: screens have to be located inside limited area.
  • Saved images: the images will be saved for a month.
  • Duty to inform: we have to inform about the CCTV installaton by a informative poster. This element is composed by a pictogram and text where inform how you could access to replace your data.
  • Schedule control: we have to inform the employees if the cameras are used to control entrances and exits.
  • Right to access to images: you could order it with a ID copy, date and hour that you want to see. The images don´t be showed directly to others. If they couldn´t be watched, we have to give a document with this information.

ROLLER SHUTTER: 1ST LEVEL OF SECURITY

PERSIANA

Security is a priority element when we talk about comercial stores. Althought they are located at inside or outside areas, to get a good protections without to lose the elegance could be a big challenge.

First of security elements that you have to installed is the closing system. The roller shutter, manual or automatic, is the first level to prevent the illegal access; then the order of our shutter has to be well studied.

MATERIAL

All the rollers shutter have made by great resistance material. So, when we go to find our shutter, we´ll find 2 types:

  • Roller shutters made in steel: very resistance material, the galvanized version avoids the corrosionof material. It doesn´t need maintenance and it could have a long lifetime. It has a quimic reaction to avoid scratching.
  • Roller shutters made in aluminium: wellknown by its lightness, the aluminium is, with iron, the mostlty used material around the world. It has a long lifetime beacause it´s corrosion resistant. It has the same finished in the both sides. Something doesn´t happen in galvanized shutters, that just have one side.

Althought the aluminum and its lightness are wellknown, when we need to offers a hight resistance, we add more to double the thickness and then the weight is increased a lot.

FISISHED

When we know wich material we´ll use, we have to decice the shutter finished. We have to keep options in mind like:

  • Bussiness style.
  • We want t be according the building where we are.
  • We want people look inside when we are closed.

You have these main options:

  • Die-cutting shoutter: you could close the access and at the same time, people could see the inside. It´s used in clothes stores, etc.
  • Blind shutter: it´s a clossing that doesn´t allow to see the inside of store. It´s used in places where the security is the priority.
  • Microperforated shutter: it´s a mix of elegance and security. If you are looking for a shutter that has style and it doesn´t lose resistance, this is your shutter.
  • Imitation-wood shutter: you´ll have all the wood advantages and no disadvantages.
  • Lacquered shutter: it´s the best option to shutter exposed to scraching, and inclement weather, etc. Oven lacquered gives a extra resistance.

OPENING AND CLOSING

We could addapt a lot of opening system in our roller shutter:

  • Fobs: if we install a receiver we´ll get to open the gate with the fob.
  • Proximity device: they are cards or tags that you put close to the reader installed and the shutter starts to open.
  • Tradictional key:  you use a inlay lock to open and close the shutter.
  • Keypad: we could addapt a keypad, then you introduce a correct code and the shutter starts to open.
  • Smarphone: there are different systems by App from your smartpone. You don´t need to be close to the gate to open or close.

TOTAL SECURITY

If you are looking for the total possible security, you have to install a self-locking shutter. This system is only to automatic shutter, not manual. It has a extra security that blocks the shutter when you force a manual mode.

We keep in mind that this shutter needs a complete installation, in other words, if we have an automatic shutter we´ll have to change all the devices, so it´s more expensive.

Powermatic has a range of shutter, you could contact us and our qualified technician are ready to help you.

PREVENTION PLANNING TO COMMUNITY OFFENSES

Powermatic security precaution

Prevention of offenses is a continous challenger to all communities. The high class residential areas and houses that are empty during the day are the focus of thieves. Also, the tourist appartments are a goal to thieves because they are emplty during the autumn and winter.

If we follow a criminology theory, to offense happens, it´s necessary 3 situationn:

  • A motivated thief.
  • Existing goal.
  • No one who could takes action.

This situation isn´t casual, there are some moments and places where these 3 conditions happen.

Do you know that 78% of crimminal case are about property offense?

The thief is a rational person who gets decisions based in profits and costs. So our goal, with this prevention planninf, is to tilt the balance foward costs. So, we have the technology advantages to get it.

Our prevention project is elaborated to reforce the security of our community  from outside to inside.

PERIMETRAL CLOSING

The most important thing to prevention, at community outside, is to have a perimetral walls. So, the best options is to have a fence made in metal or  masonry.

It´s necessary that the perimetre has only one entrace, close to the security office, than people just can enter and exit by the same entrance. Also, you should be identificated when you don´t have the remote control to enter.

The identification is necessary to taxi drivers and maintenance personal. This is a good solutions because with less access, more control.

This simple access, always that you could do it, is recommeded at night, for explamle since 12 a.m until 6 a.m.

ACCESS CONTROL

Our proyect works to reforce the access control systems. There are some options:

  • When you go to collect a reomte control or key you have to identify yourself to get it.
  • These devices have an unique serial number.
  • We associate echa remote control with the owner and appartment. The if the remote is lost or stolen we could cancel or replace it.

Powermatic has a antypassback system. You just could enter if you have entered in the opposite sense in the same gate. Then you could access if you have existed before. Also you could exit if your has registered your entrace before.

Other usefull system is a card of events. In this case, the entrance and exist are register with the serial number of the remote, the date and hour to a future check.

Last innovation is the electronic cylinder; it has a time control to limit the access. It´s very usefull to control access to swiming pool area. Also, when you a have a neighbord that doesn´t pay the community taxes, you could cancell the access to: swimming pool, gym, socialclub, etc.

Likewise, it´s very usefull to cleaner sercvices whre you could give a key with time control and the person could access in a limit time.

INCREASE OF SECURITY

Este aumento de seguridad tiene distintos objetos;

  • The incresase of the number of guardians 24 hours, because a lot of thieves act when the house is alone.
  • Surveillance cameras have to been installed in priority places.
  • The increase of street lighting helps the surveillance. It helps the guardian vision and the resolution of CCTV cameras.
  • The taxi drivers and maintenance personal identifications is very important.
COMMUNITY AWARENESS

It´s important to inform to all neightbords about the prohibitions and duties. You could install panels with all these informations.

If we put panel of surveillance areas, according with data protection rules, it´s a good solutions to deterrence the possible thieves.

La principal vía de entrada a las urbanizaciones o viviendas suelen ser los propios propietarios o inquilinos de las comunidades. Una acción que no tiene coste para la comunidad y es de lo  más efectiva es:

The first guilties to break the security rules are the own neightbords. There are some actions that help to be care:

  • No abrir a nadie desconocido.
  • Don´t open to unknowed people
  • No entregar dispositivos de acceso como llaves y mandos a terceros.
  • Dont´t bring the access devices to others.
  • If we the unknowed person with a strage attitude you should have to inform security guardian or police.

Powernatic installs and addapat our prevention planning to your needs.

LIVE IN PEACE IN RAINNING SEASON

Rains and automatic gates

The rains have arrrived to Spain, this year it happened very soon.  According to Mediterranean weather, the raining season is coming. We have to know that Autumn and Winter are the raining season, and we have to be ready to face them in peace.

After last day with DANA episode, we can´t do anything, there is a lot of water that it´s impossible to go out without damages. Beyond this exceptional situations, we coud to face the water without problem.

Powermatic  gives you some tips to help you to avoid that rains become a headache.

CLEANING

You have to clean the automatic gate area to be sure about the good workinfg of it. If we don´t take care of this, dirt and leafs could bock the gate movement and other gate devices. If we don´t clean this area, some drops could damage our gate.

WATER TIGHTNESS

Some electronic devices are exposed to bad weather or they are inside the floor. To check the covers of theses devices are very important.  We couldn´t lose the water tightness of theses devices, they could be damaged. Remember that the sun weakens the covers, then we recommed you to change them.

REVIEW

As we check our vehicle every year, we change the wheels or filters… we need you to chek and review our gate. We recommend to review it each 6 months, at least once per year you should do it. It´s the best way to extend its lifetime.

AFFECTED DEVICES

There are some devices more exposed than others and for that reason we have them a special consideration.

Photocells, that help us to avoid accidents and a gate closes when someone/something is crossing, are affected by rains. A lot of drops on the sensor make that the gate doesn´t close. Clean them and say goodbye to the problems.

Gates are an outside device and it´s exposed 100% to everything. You have to choose a goof material to have a safety gate. We recommend you aluminium even thought it´s more expensive than others.

Water tightless is necessary to protect the engines and also it´s very important if we talk about wiring. Check all the wiring system.

With prevention and good opinion the rain never becomes our enemy
