Bhubaneswar: Young Odia entrepreneur Sk Faiz is all set to revolutionize home alarm security system with his affordable smart alarm.
A native of Cuttack, Faiz is a 1st-year student of ITI (Electronics) of Government ITI College. His smart alarm is on display at Odisha MSME International Trade Fair 2020 that kicked off at the IDCO Exhibition Ground here from January 8.
Talking to OMMCOM NEWS, Faiz said that he understood the need for a home security system in today’s world but was shocked at the prices. He adds that coming from a middle-class family himself, he knew spending Rs 10-15,000 in one go and then another Rs 500-1500 per month was not at all feasible.
He decided to make an affordable smart alarm with a simple structure of circuit, sensor and a basic phone. He sourced the components himself and out came into existence an affordable smart alarm system.
The alarm is fixed to the door and once an intruder breaks open the door, a signal is sent to phone which in turn dials a pre-set number of the house owner. The owner then can alert the police.
Faiz adds that he can set up smart alarm in houses at a minimal price of Rs 1000.
