Record, Save, and Share Video and Audio With Authorities

Video surveillance cameras are nothing new, but technology has come a long way. We are talking about higher resolution and larger camera angles for bigger pictures. But that’s not all. When you integrate your home surveillance with a home automation system, all your feed goes to the cloud for storage, giving you more options for space and protection if someone breaks into your home and potentially steals important equipment. A cool feature of surveillance now is called 'deep learning,' which allows authorities to use a keyword search to pull up specific events in a piece of footage. This footage can also be backed up and shared with authorities remotely.

 

Remotely Access Your System Anytime, Anywhere

You don’t have to worry about going on vacation for two weeks and leaving the house empty.
