Rafiki by Securex needs no introduction, having talked about it a couple of weeks ago about its operations and products, albeit briefly. The company has been offering security services for a long time. At the moment, it serves customers in Kenya and Uganda.
Securex has since launched affordable home security products. The entire catalogue of the security sensors and other smart devices is extensive, so you might want to check them out at securexafrica.com.
What we have in the house is a basic kit that ships with an alarm panel, motion sensor, magnetic contact, a remote control, mounting materials (for the motion sensor) and a power adapter and cable.
So, you have made your purchase (the kit costs KES 7500), and want to set it up.
How do you go about it?
Good question, because we are going to help you with that.
The device should be installed in a door or window that you think is the most vulnerable point that an intruder can use to break into your house. We only have a piece here, so for those with multiple points, you might want to pick more of these sensors.
The contact is made of two devices: a tiny magnet and a slightly bigger sensor. They should be less than 10 mm apart, so you might want to take note of that. In our case, we installed at our kitchen door, but we could as have used the main door.
One thing we noted is that the magnetic contact is rather weak, and slides down the its attachment point. At the same time, it really did not stick with the sensor, but we trying to find out if we have not done it right, considering the two devices do not have any mounting materials. NOTE: The transmission distance is less than 100 metres.
Motion Sensor This is a simple one, and can be set up and installed in less than 10 minutes.
First, you power it with the included AAA batteries. There is a small extra attachment piece that slides at its back. After setting them up, choose the best location where you think the device will serve you right in terms of detecting suspicious motions.
Your front door, for instance, is a good choice. And so is you back, kitchen door or balcony area. Securex also gives the following guidelines:
