What we do


 Bruce travels extensively on business and its important for him to be in full control of what is happening at home, 24/7. “Knowing that my road facing gate is closed and has not been accidentally left open is no problem with the simple monitoring system called The Protector. Using a cell phone, I open the gate remotely to let in the domestic or the security company when I am not at home. Should my road facing gate or garage door be tampered with, I will immediately receive an SMS and followed up by a cell telephone call. There will be no nasty surprises with this system in place,” he explains.

Called The Protector, the system addresses simple solutions, like managing your road facing gate to more complex solutions like switching pumps on and off and integrating into the home alarm system. From basic home monitoring solutions to complex home automation, almost anything can be monitored and automated.

Examples of basic home protection

  • Allow authorised users to open your road facing gate or garage door
  • Open the gate remotely for your domestic worker
  • Know if the gate or garage door is being tampered with during the night or when you are away
  • Allow domestic workers into your property at authorised times, allowing them to make an authorised free cell call to open the gate, switch off the alarm and then send a SMS to the home owners of the event
  • Open the gate in the morning when you are at work to allow the Gardner in to work and switching the beams off.
  • Close the gate or garage door is you have left it open for more than 5 minutes

Examples of advanced home automation solutions

Holiday home owners

Authorised cell phone numbers can switch on the fridge, geyser and water conveniently one hour before arriving at the holiday home. Should you forget to switch off the geyser, it’s no problem, just send an SMS to switch the geyser off and check that the fridge and water are also switched off.


By far the most popular implementation is protecting the home road facing gate or garage door. More advanced solutions need to be designed together with you to meet requirements. The user really has total control and peace of mind so give us a call to discuss your ‘peace of mind” requirements and we will find a solution. Arrange to see a practical demonstration and experience the “peace of mind” solutions.


The cost of the Basic Protector to monitor and control you road facing gate or garage door starts from about R2 750.00. Should more advanced solutions need to be designed the costs will be higher. Our consulting engineers will meet you at home to discuss and provide you with a solution to meet your home automation and budget.
