What makes this different from the standard starter kit?
The Panasonic Home Safety Starter Kit Plus comes with the same items as the standard starter kit – including a magnetic door sensor, a motion sensor, a cordless handset and a hub for everything to connect to – and also includes an indoor siren. This increases the security around your home by notifying you via the app and sounding a siren that will alert anyone nearby. The siren, which rings at 110db, is the equivalent of a jackhammer or a rock concert.

How does the kit work?
The security kit transmits the data wirelessly and does so using Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT). This technology allows for transmission of data up to 300m in clear line of sight and is safer than Wi-Fi when in use due to it being invisible to standard wireless products.

Can I add more devices to this kit?
This kit is fully expandable with the Panasonic home safety range – which includes cameras for both indoors and outdoors, a cordless telephone, smart plugs, water sensors and even a siren. By adding extra devices you can increase the security of your home and potentially reduce the premiums on your household insurance.

How easy is this kit to set up?
The Panasonic DECT kit is simple to set up. Connect the hub to your network, download the app to your smartphone or tablet and pair each device to the hub. With an easy one push pairing, just press one button on each device and one button on the hub. Devices can also be registered via the app, and the one push pairing works across all the smart home devices if you decide to add more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bit of kit Set it up in only a few minutes, it's all just a few buttons to press and off you go. plug it into your landline telephone socket and you can answer all your landline calls on your mobile. also has a answering machine. cameras not as good as my old cameras but they are ok for a 720p the good thing is you can just keep adding bits to it. day after I bought it I went back and bought a second camera for the back garden and it was up a running in just a few minutes great value for money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea. Doesn't work properly. Intermittently drops connection from the sensors, intermittently won't connect whilst out and about, and now whilst I'm away from home it's lost connection from the internet. My partner is at home and even has tried resetting my router and the hub, it still will not connect, so can not be switched on and armed. This system has too many problems. It worked fine for a short while but the intermittent problems make it impractical.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from can't control on mobile 3g/4g internet system works fine and controllable when my phone is connected to the same wifi as the hub. I cannot connect on mobile 3g/4g internet and therefore I cant control it away from home as advertised. Panasonic help desk couldn't help!!! the system is advertised it can be controlled away from home!!! well I can't and in my opinion it is a miss-selling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit, but room for improvement with phone app. Brilliant piece of kit, although I've had multiple connection issues including not being able to connect via 3g/4g and initially not being able to register my android phone to the hub. At one point I unregistered my phone then it wouldn't let me re-register, then I reset the full system and it still wouldn't let me register my phone, so then I cleared the cache of the app and tried again and it let me, then it also let me connect via 3g and 4g. This is not something that's documented in the instructions or trouble shooting and is not something that you'd know how to solve if you weren't good with phones. Once it's up and running though it's great. I'm happy with the range of the door sensor and the motion sensor even seems to reach our external garage from the hub, but I'm yet to test properly with this. It has a phone socket so that it can call per designated phone numbers to send warnings if you set it up that way, it also has an at home mode and away mode so you can set different sensors up for if you're in and around the house or out. You can do a lot with it, but one thing I thought would have been useful is a chime for the door sensor so that if I left my door unlocked I'd get a chime to let me know it was opened whilst the system was not armed. That would be handy as it would let me know if guests have arrived or if someone opened the door who I perhaps wasn't expecting. You dont even need to connect the hub directly to your router, it connects wirelessly so you can put the hub in whichever room you like. The siren is mains powered and didnt come with a particularly long cable which was a bit of a negative and the siren isn't massively loud, depending on how big your house is, you might not be able to hear it, say if you were watching tv or on a different floor with doors closed. At some point I may add a camera and some smart plugs and maybe key fobs to arm and disarm, but for now I'm happy with it's functionality.
