Keep your home and loved ones safe with a smart home security system capable of being customised to suit your pets and lifestyle. Boundary is a wireless DIY system that’s easy to install. There’s no hard wiring to worry about, and with a choice of either screwing sensors and hub into the wall or using the sticky pads provided, it’s up to you whether you want to get the power drill out. (Although you will need the drill if you’re adding an outdoor siren – but the spirit level and screws are all provided!)

 

Control your DIY system from anywhere with mobile app access

This is an easy system to install that will bring you all the reassurance of an accurate and reliable alarm system, with full control from your smartphone. Left home and forgot to arm the alarm? No worries, arm using your phone. Want to silence your alarm in seconds? You can do that too with one simple swipe.

DIY alarm FAQs

It may feel like it goes without saying, however, you need to pick the right system for your property. Many DIY security systems offer something for every home. Key things to consider before opting for DIY alarm installation include:

  • The number of doors and entrances you have
  • How comfortable are you with DIY? You can use the provided stickers to mount sensors, the outdoor siren requires drilling. The central hub can be drilled to the wall or would you prefer to add a desk stand to your order?
  • Do you want Level 1 police response monitoring? This is only available with professional installation.
  • Do you have the right equipment? You’ll need stepladders to start.

Boundary has a system for designing your own alarm system, to help you work out whether you’re ready to install a system yourself.

Yes, of course. Boundary’s DIY security system is simple and easy to install. However, if you would like a police response, you’ll need our pro installation.

Learn about DIY alarm installation.

You can upgrade to a police response security system, but it’s a police requirement that your system is installed by an SSAIB approved professional.

Boundary’s monitored alarm gives you ultimate protection against break-ins. If your alarm is triggered, the hub will notify the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) immediately. The ARC then calls your keyholders and will request a police response if necessary.

It depends on the size of your house and which rooms you want to monitor. Our pre-built bundles come with entry sensors and PIR motion sensors. Personalise your DIY systems by adding more sensors, key fobs or an outdoor siren.

Use our calculator to design your own alarm system.

There’s no need to worry about false alarms. Calibrate Boundary’s PIR motion sensors to ignore pets under 35kg. If this doesn’t work for you, create a pet-friendly zone in your house.

Our DIY home security systems use world-class wireless technology Z-Wave® to communicate. All data is encrypted, protecting communication between your hub, sensors and siren.

Wi-Fi is only used to report to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). If you’re worried about a drop in internet connection it’s best to choose a cellular hub with cellular back-up available for £5 per month. If your Wi-Fi drops or is ever maliciously cut, your smart hub will automatically switch to cellular data.

Yes, it will. Boundary hubs have a 12-hour backup battery and will remain operational if the power supply is interrupted. Don’t worry if an intruder cuts your phone lines. Your hub will use a mobile signal instead to communicate with the ARC if you’ve chosen the cellular backup option.

Personalise your smart security system with other smart home gadgets. Boundary systems work with:

  • Amazon Alexa
  • Google Home Assistant
  • IFTTT (including Philips Hue)
  • Samsung SmartThings
