Excellence award for SMART-i

by Mark Rowe

SMART-i, a Y3K company that sells home security products, won the Intruder Alarm or Exterior Deterrent Product of the Year at the Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2015.

The awards ceremony, which is supported by IFSEC and FIREX International, ran at the end of November at London Hilton on Park Lane. The comedian and television host Jimmy Carr, pictured left, was the compere.

Event speakers underlined the need for joined-up thinking in the security community. SMART-i combines CCTV cameras, intruder alarms, PIR motion detectors, smoke alarms and power usage into a single gateway hub, controlled using a smartphone app. Users can view and configure their devices using smartphones, even when away from home, and can receive an alert to their phone via text or email if anything goes wrong.

Paul Singh, pictured centre, Y3K’s Group CEO, said: “SMART-i has been four years in planning and is the most fully integrated smart-home security system on the market. Our homes are our most valuable asset, but most people have very little control or knowledge over what is happening in them when they aren’t there. There are a lot of home security systems out there, but they don’t give you any early warning of danger – and without that, there is little or nothing you can do to prevent serious harm from happening to your family or property.

“Our SMART-i system notifies you as soon as there is an intruder in your driveway, smoke in your kitchen, flooding in your bathroom, or carbon monoxide coming from your boiler. It sends that alert immediately to your phone, as well as to the phones of trusted persons of your choosing, so that something can be done to prevent problems from escalating.”

Now in their 17th year and held at the Park Lane Hilton, the Security & Fire Excellence Awards highlight people, projects and products in the UK’s security industry.

Stockists of the Smart-i system are CPC, Halfords, WF Senate, HD, The RAC and other online retailers. Other new products are scheduled to be launched in the New Year, with all products carrying a one-year warranty. Ring +44 208 689 9999 or visit
