Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any prerequisites?

You must have a smartphone which enables you to download apps. You also need broadband connection with at least one spare port available on the router.

How easy is Home8 to install?

Home8 is a self-installation (DIY) alarm system designed to be ultra simple to install. You don't even need a drill or screwdriver (or any others tools). Typical installation takes around 20 minutes and all installation instructions are provided through an easy to follow step-by-step guide on the Home8 app.

Is there a monthly cost?

No. Assuming you only require two user accounts and you are happy with the 'standard' service. If you need more users and/or wish to upgrade to 'premium' service, there's a small fee of £7.99 per month (or £79.90 per year). See service plans here.

Is there a long-term contract?

No. There is no contract or long tie-ins. You can use the system on the 'standard' service free of charge forever. If you are subscribed to 'premium' service, you are free to cancel at any time and/or downgrade to 'standard' service.

What is the warranty period?

There is a 12 month warranty on all equipment.

Does this work using SIM card (3G) or broadband (IP)?

It uses your broadband connection. The hub comes with a ethernet cable which simply plugs into an empty port on the back of your router. There's no 3G capabilities on this system.

What happens if my internet connection goes down?

If your internet connection goes down the alarm system will still operate as this uses RF 433MHz frequency. The local siren will still activate and the cameras will still record and transmit video data over wifi. If internet connection is lost for more than a few minutes the secure cloud will send you a 'system offline' notification via the app on your smartphone. Once internet connection is restored you will receive app notification and be able to view video.

What happens when the batteries run low?

Your Home8 app alerts you when the batteries in any sensor are running low. It's a quick, simple and cheap job to replace a sensor battery. Home8 sensors use CR123A batteries and these will typically last 2 - 3 years.
