Product Description


The HCF (Hydra Control Freak) is an advanced security system which when linked to PIR sensors and suitable IP cameras can inform you by SMS or email when a PIR is triggered. You can then use a smartphone to monitor the video captured by the camera at the point that the PIR was activated. Besides informing you the HCF can be used to control X10 devices, so that on activation a series of events, such as switching on lights, sirens etc., can be put in motion.
