A Wireless IoT Platform for Security and Home Automation

Home Automation: The Controller of Things

27.09.2021 - Ksenia have introduced an advanced wireless alarm and automation control panel which is dedicated to the professional distribution market and designed for typically residential applications. The lares 4.0 wls 96 utilizes the 868 MHz band, is fully bidirectional and compatible with all Ksenia Security wls peripherals already on the market.

This product is designed to cover the range from quick and simple installations (in wireless mode) to that of the small residential installation, also integrating smart-home functions. The lares 4.0 wls 96 also manages the domus multifunction module, auxi and auxi-H expansion modules and the energia energy management module.
With both wireless and wired connections, the control panel maintains the characteristics of the whole lares 4.0 platform: video verification and audio verification of alarms, integration with Google Home, Amazon Alexa and related voice assistants, integration with Control4, Crestron, full compatibility with porta 4.0 modules for Konnex integration, a porta IoT HTTP gateway and much more. New features are included, such as video verification by connecting any model of ONVIF camera and by sending emails or push notifications, with screenshots related to the timeframes of the selected events.


The all-In-one panel is housed in a white or black polycarbonate box of a A4 sheet size, and contains the mother board of the control panel with an IP interface and transceiver on board, a soft-touch LED keypad, an indoor siren, the 15V-25W switching power supply protected by a fuse, as well as space to install a 12V/2Ah backup battery.
The control panel can manage up to 96 zones, a maximum 40 of which can be wired. It has 18 outputs, of which up to 16 can be wireless. In addition there are four IP video inputs. The external communication of the system, in addition to the IP connection, is ensured either by the 4G/LTE/or PSTN modules, which can be installed directly on the mother board, or by the gemino IoT. For the first time therefore, even without an IP network or in the event of a power failure, it will be possible to use the app also for the programming via a 4G/LTE channel.

Broad Certification

The system has comprehensive certification, including EAC, EN50131 Grade 2 - Class II, T031: 2017 and SSF 1014 Larmklass R. To provide further support for system reliability, Ksenia Security offers a 5-year extension of the warranty period for the lares 4.0 wls 96 control panel. The control panel can be expanded with a KS-BUS: up to three user interfaces (chosen from an ergo keyboard, volo and volo-in proximity readers), one BUS siren (imago or radius), one domus to manage the functions of the chronothermostat, six expansion modules (a choice of auxi and auxi-H), and two of either opis or divide. IP peripherals management includes ergo-T, gemino IoT, porta 4.0, and ONVIF cameras.
SecureWeb is the secure cloud environment that allows the development of complex applications, which has made a leap forward in the business intelligence world. The graphic interface has been improved with simpler organization of the data. Greater fluidity has been brought to the installer dashboard and the speed of downloads has increased significantly.

Installer App

The Ksenia SecureWeb app helps installers to realize competitive strategies, offering processing power, database storage, orderly distribution of content and other features that support the sizing and growth of different requirements, both for the end user and for the installer. The app enables setup of the control panel via a mobile device – such as connecting a smartphone by reading a QR code – its registration with geolocation, and also push notifications. Moreover, the Pro app maintains a Ksenia installer profile, which can be adapted using the points accumulated through the loyalty program. Centralized management of different systems and access to the technical documentation as well as to the latest news about Ksenia is provided by push notifications.

User App

For the first time, the users themselves can safely manage their residence, office, commercial or industrial building through a dedicated user app, without requiring intervention by the installer. This app enables monitoring of all security aspects (intrusion, video surveillance, access control) and simultaneously the management of home automation or a BMS (Building Management System) from a smartphone or tablet.
