I have seen a few threads on various aspects of what I am looking at here, but nothing that pulls it all together, for what I am looking for.
A solid wood gate at the start of the pathway that runs up to our front door. This needs to be magnetically locked, so that it can be released remotely. I am considering getting the gate and the locking mechanism installed by a professional and sourcing the release/camera/intercom/pinpad solution myself (reason for this, I will outline later). Are the magnetic locks a simple relay type control that operates off a pulse or power drop type principle? Is there a standard interface?
The release/camera/intercom/pinpad solution needs to provide all those things and ideally work with a centralised (in our hallway, which is approx 20 metres away) screen/intercom and lock release. We also want an app to be available on our iphones/ipads that will support monitoring/alerting while we are off our WiFi network (so Cloud based). Storage to be cloud based too.
So the solutions we are looking for are;
A) Gate provider with the magnetic lock installed, awaiting signal from monitoring solution
B) A monitoring solution (Camera(s), Intercom, Pinpad and magnetic lock release). If this can also easily support expansion to be a full home security solution in the future, so additional cameras etc
C) Any recommendations around suppliers who can do A) and B) together!
Many thanks in advance!
