Rafiki by Securex is an Affordable DIY Smart Home Security System

Two weeks ago, Security Solutions provider Securex launched a new product for the market called Rafiki. It is a simple Do-It-Yourself security kit targeting domestic residences. And yes, you can use the item in whatever residential place from your own homes to rentals. The setup should be pretty straightforward according to Securex. I’ll explain the whole thing in a how-to article soon.

Securex says the new product is aimed at curbing the increase in burglary incidences in domestic residential places by providing surveillance, deterrence, self-monitoring, and response subscription, all via their smartphone application. 

From the base kit that costs KES. 7,540 (link for discount), which contains the base station, you can connect many different sensors, and extra stuff including thermostats, cameras, smoke sensors, smart lights etc. that help you not only control your smart home but also help you check every area of your house from wherever you may be in the world. Your only requirements are a WiFi internet connection, and a Home.

The base kit contains the following:

Here’s a look at each of the items within the base kit:

What’s good about Rafiki by Securex:

At the launch, Securex CEO Tony Sahni said, “Over the years offering security solutions to our customers, we have recognised that most security services are not always available to the average Kenyan household. Security should not be a privilege; it is our basic right. To boost the safety of our nation, we saw it prudent to offer an accessible solution, where customers can always have eyes and ears on their homes and loved ones, knowing they are at ease, even when away from home.” 

Over the coming weeks, I will share with you guys how to set up the basic home kit. Where you can place the different sensors, and more. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
