Door locks and homeseer comtrol - Insurance Implications

Has anyone implemented door locks (either commercial ones eg: z-wave or DIY eg: magnets / solenoids) controlled with Homeseer?

I'm considering the options and wondered how other users in the UK have gone about it? Did you ask your insurers? Did they make any stipulations or exemptions?

Hi, I'm afraid not, automated door locks are a step too far for me. Everything else can be automated, but not my locks

I would doubt if they meet UK insurance requirement which from memory is BS3621 - which is the standard most of the better 5 lever mortice locks meet.

Check your policy wording, I would put money on a requirement for external dors to meet this standard, or your premium will rise.... jsut would not mention any HA....just state none-BS standard as I am sure most HA type locks will not be....
