Let’s face it – times are bad and the crime rate is going up with snatch thefts and roadside robberies is all too common in urban cities like the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Penang and even Malacca.
Almost every single day you’d see news regarding crime shared on social media.
Even the Malaysian government is expecting it to rise in the near future.
“Crime rates could increase over the next two years as the economy slows down”, Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said.
It’s gotten so bad that even the US Department of State has issued a warning to its citizens in Malaysia:
“There has been a noticeable increase in crime in Kuala Lumpur in 2014, including several reported assaults and robberies, sometimes involving weapons. Petty theft, particularly purse snatching and pickpocketing, and residential burglaries are the most common crimes committed…”
So unless you live in a high-security gated and guarded residence (and even if you do), you’d need to have some measure of security for peace of mind.

Here are the components that make up this system:
Get a supplementary line and SIM card and insert it into the control console then download the VEDOS2 app from the App Store or Google Play and connect it. The system does not require WiFi, 3G/ LTE or date, just a normal SIM card for call in/ out communication. You can also make 2 way audio conversations from your phone to the control panel in case there’s an emergency or you cannot get the person on the phone or vice versa.
The remote control allows you to control your security system when you are away or return home. Should an emergency occur, simply press the SOS button to send an emergency signal to the control panel which in turn will send an emergency message to the app on your smartphone.
This passive infrared motion detector is designed to sense infrared radiation emitted from intruders and send a signal to control panel.
Installing it is pretty easy. Just screw it into the wall.
When it’s time to replace the battery, just snap the sensor out of the socket and change the battery. The socket will still be attached to the wall.
This is magnetic sensor for any opening like a door and window. It will send a wireless signal to the control panel, when a door or window is opened.
The system can be controlled by the smartphone app which acts as a remote control. The sensors are attached via double-sided tape so no messy drilling is required.
With everything going mobile these days, it’s no wonder that your alarm system can also be controlled by your smartphone.
The VEDOS2 alarm system app is highly customizable according to your needs.
The system is relatively easy to install, provided you have some basic home improvement skills. If you have a drill that would be even handier for screwing in the sensors. No messy wiring required like a traditional wired alarm system which means you save cost and the effort to clean up after the installation.
