It’s been reported that 60% of burglars who were caught said they decided not to rob specific houses with security alarm (Source: Safewise). With 2 million home burglaries reported every year, security systems are a vital deterrent needed in every home. You can’t put a price on peace of mind and family safety.
We’ve previously highlighted a company that specializes in easy-to-install home security systems, . Home8 has recently transformed into Home8alarm. Home8alarm: Born from Home8, is the company’s Verified Collaborative Alarm System. It offers supervisory video access and TripleShield privacy control; event video, direct notification and prioritized response; and Plug-N-Play, cognitive and scalable system capabilities
Home8 also has another side called Home8care. It is geared towards the elderly and aging-in-place market.
With Home8alarm, their Video-Verified Alarm Security Ultra-Secure Starter Kit allows you to keep tabs on your home 24/7 and alert police as needed.
Home8alarm’s Video-Verified Garage Door Control System is the latest in secure tech for your home. As the garage is another point of access, it’s necessary to monitor it at all times. This system allows for complete control and surveillance of your garage, all with your smartphone.
Installation, like all of Home8’s products, is simple and doesn’t require the services of a professional. To get started you want to make sure you have the security Shuttle connected to your router. If you have any other Home8 system you probably already have the Shuttle; that’s the brain of the whole system.
Now you’re ready for the garage. Simply install the garage door operation sensor and opener which will alert you whenever the door is in use and allow you to open it with the click of a button.
Next, position the mini cube HD camera in your garage, giving you eyes on the area at all times. And because the camera has night vision you’ll see whether the door is open or not even in the dark.
That’s it. It really is that easy. The accompanying Home8 app will notify you whenever the garage opens so you can verify if this is an authorized access or not. From there you can make whatever decision is necessary to protect your home.
Going a step further, you can open the door right from the app, which comes in handy if you’ve forgotten your garage door opener or if you are accepting packages from a delivery company.
You can purchase the Home8 Smart Garage Ultra-Secure Starter Kit for a mere $229.99 at home8alarm.com.
