Video Doorbell

As the website for Ring video doorbell states: a lot happens at your front door. Sophisticated video doorbell solutions can help you feel more secure at home — and away — by telling you when someone approaches your front door. Ring gives you the freedom to control interactions on your terms. 

Ring video doorbells are equipped with HD cameras with night vision, two-way audio, and motion detector sensors. When Ring detects motion on your front porch, the system sends an instant notification to your smartphone or tablet. From there, you can see, hear, and speak to the delivery person, stranger, neighbor, or friend on your property, whether you’re inside the house, at work, or on vacation in another state. 

With a subscription to Ring Protect, you can save video footage and photos in your Ring account. That way, if a porch pirate steals a package while you’re at work, you have evidence that can help the authorities find the thief.

Alarm System

Honeywell alarm serves as a central hub for your home security and life safety monitors. The alarm sends a notification to your smartphone when the system detects movement or a potential intruder in your home — allowing you to verify real alarms, dismiss false alarms, and take swift action to protect your property, even when you’re not at home. 

Additionally, Honeywell alarms have 24/7 professional monitoring services, meaning you don’t need to be present or glued to your smartphone to know that your home’s safety is in good hands. In the event of an alert, the monitoring service can verify the alarm within minutes and call the authorities if necessary —without you having to lift a finger. 

A Honeywell home alarm is compatible with a range of sensors that work to keep your family and property safe. Heat sensors, smoke sensors, flood sensors, carbon monoxide sensors, medical transmitters, and panic transmitters proactively alert you and the 24/7 monitoring service when something is wrong. Honeywell gives you peace of mind knowing that family members can get out of the house quickly in the event of a fire or gas leak. 

Interior and Exterior Security Cameras

Smart security cameras give you the power to monitor what’s happening in and around your house, 24/7. Many smart cameras come with features like two-way audio, night vision, motion detection, and omnidirectional or wide angle viewing for expansive coverage indoors and out. 

Network-connected cams allow you to access and view live footage any time using a smartphone or tablet. While you’re at work, you can quickly check to make sure the kids arrived home safely from school. On date night, take a quick peek in on the babysitter to make sure all is calm before you and your spouse enter the movie theater. If your backyard camera detects motion by the pool, access the footage to determine if the problem is an intruder or a stray cat.
