    Panasonic Smart Home KX-HN6011EW Safety Starter Kit Plus with hub, Window/Door Sensor and Indoor Siren, White, Set of 4 Pieces (DIY & Tools)

    Product worked out of box but didnt realise how behind the times the camera was. Couldnt make out faces of people walking past. 6 fps and 480p is just not good enough. The sensors worked ok and as intended but it was let down by the camera. I was going to use the system for security but it is not fit for this purpose. It might be ok for casual use and baby monitoring etc

    Panasonic Smart Home KX-HN6011EW Safety Starter Kit Plus with hub, Window/Door Sensor and Indoor Siren, White, Set of 4 Pieces (DIY & Tools)

    I’ve been using the Panasonic Smart Home Safety Starter Kit Plus over the past month. The kit consist of a main Hub, Window/Door sensor, motion sensor and siren. Panasonic offer a number of additional components which can be linked to the hub, such as cameras, Dect phones and smart plugs.

    Setup of the system is relatively straightforward and the included instructions are clear. It’s a simple case of downloading the app on your smartphone (iOS or Android), which then allows you to connect the hub to your Wi-Fi network. All sensors included in the starter kit plus are already linked to the hub. Apart from the Siren, all of the sensors are powered by batteries. The Window/door sensor can be mounted by using the included screws or double-sided sticky tape and the motion sensor can be mounted using the included bracket and screws. I had everything set up in around 35 mins (after waiting 20 mins for the firmware to update).

    The system is all configured and operated via the smartphone app. I’m using the Android version (“Home Network System”, available on Google Play) and whilst it’s usable, the User Interface appears to be very dated and amateurish, lacking correlation and polish. I do however, like how the icon is always displayed in the status bar and notification dropdown, making it easy to see the connection status and quickly access settings, which is useful for disarming/arming the system when returning/leaving home.

    If a sensor is triggered, the internal low-volume alarm sounds on the hub accompanied with the loud alarm and flashing strobe light from the siren. At the same time, an alarm is activated on your phone along with a notification specifying which sensor was activated. Whether you get the alarm/notification obviously depends on whether your phone is connected to the hub either locally or remotely. I’ve noticed local Wi-Fi connection works 100% of the time, but remote connection seems unreliable. This is understandable when connected through patchy mobile data, but there’s been numerous instances where it hasn’t automatically connected (without opening the app) despite using reliable Wi-Fi connections at the homes of my friends or family.

    Addition features which I haven’t yet been able to test, is camera monitoring, DECT phone and smart control. I have to say that DECT support looks very promising and appears to allow your smartphone to use the landline to make and receive calls, plus access to answerphone messages. There’s also an intercom feature which looks useful. The Smart control feature is similar (in part) to the well known IFTTT (If This, Then That) service, which allows your to create scenarios (recipes) that control other devices. e.g., Record a video or turn on a smart plug when motion is detected. Unfortunately, whilst IFTTT is an open platform supporting numerous manufacturers, the closed nature of the Panasonic system means that IFTTT is not supported and only Panasonic’s own “Smart Home” devices will work with “Smart Control”. There is a decent catalogue of smart home products now available though, so it’s not a complete deal breaker.

    Overall, I like the system in general, but the remote connection issues is slightly concerning, so I’m slightly cautious about recommending this at the moment.

    Panasonic Smart Home KX-HN6011EW Safety Starter Kit Plus with hub, Window/Door Sensor and Indoor Siren, White, Set of 4 Pieces (DIY & Tools)

    The Starter Kit Plus kit includes:
    1 Hub
    1 Window/Door sensor
    1 Motion Sensor
    1 Indoor Siren
    Mountings, cables, screws and batteries.

    This may not sound much, but it should be enough to detect if someone has opened a central internal door, or is walking through your living room. The system can be expanded to add more sensors, cameras, and a DECT phone; and I am sure that the range of available sensors and devices will grow. In addition to intruder detection, the system can be configured for water leak detection (provided you buy the relevant sensor), and as an alert for inactivity; for a vulnerable relative, for example.

    The alarm isn’t loud enough to alert neighbours, but it can certainly be heard throughout the house, and should definitely warn burglars that they are being monitored. Alarms are relayed to your phone via a Panasonic app.

    SETTING UP

    Setting up the system looks a bit daunting when you first unpack the box. But the quick-start guide was very good, and I found that everything worked straight out of the box. The Panasonic Hub connects wirelessly to your existing internet wireless hub, and the sensors and alarm connect wirelessly to the Panasonic Hub. All the components are reasonably small and the sensors are battery powered, so can be positioned discretely in any location.

    I set the window sensor on the shed door in our small back garden, and it was easily recognised by the Hub placed in the living room at the front of the house. The motion sensor I placed in the kitchen; and testing it showed that it reliability detected any movement in that room.

    IN USE
    Having used the system for a few months, I like its design and ease of use, but I’m very disappointed by its reliability. On the plus side, I found that the app was easy to connect to the system and is very intuitive to use. It also gives a good level of control and configuration, both for the whole system and for individual sensors.

    However, the app frequently loses the connection to the Hub, especially if I’m away from home using mobile data. I therefore am unsure if I can rely on the system to notify me of any alerts.

    When I arrive home, the app frequently is unable to connect to the Hub, as a result, I can’t enter the rooms with the motion detectors. Sometimes when this happens, forcing the app to shut down and then restarting it will allow it to reconnect, which all takes a few minutes. Often, though, I will have to disconnect the power to the hub and fully reboot it. An added annoyance with this is that I will then have to manually re-add the devices.

    Be aware, also that the system won’t warn you when a device disconnects or shuts down, for example due to the battery running out. This happened to me with the motion sensor. It was only when I checked it’s status via the menus on the app that I notice that it was “out of range”, and on investigation I found the battery to be flat.

    A minor annoyance is that the app is a battery drainer. When it is running my Android phone shows that it is draining far more power than any other app.

    CONCLUSION
    Although I like what’s provided in the Starter Kit Plus and found it very easy to set up, I am disappointed by its very poor reliability. requent lost connections devalue this system.

    A NOTE ON CAMERAS
    When deciding whether you want this system, I would recommend you also consider the available cameras and their performance. Although not included in the Starter Kit Plus, a camera would be a component you will definitely want to add eventually. I have a Logi Circle Wireless Camera, and am really impressed by it. It gives a good picture, is very easy to set up, and streams the movie files to a free Logitech cloud storage. So even if the camera gets pinched, the video of the villain will still be accessible. I’m not sure if the Panasonic system allows this, and it seems, from the instructions I have seen, that the camera would only save the movie to an SD card on the hub — so a savvy burglar is likely to hunt for this first. But, I would advise you to check if this is so before deciding whether to buy this system.
