How it Works

Image sensors send intelligent alerts that trigger the alarm system whenever any unusual activity takes place. They even send pictures of what’s happening in real time.

The only shortcoming with traditional security systems is that the motion detector only sets off the alarm, without displaying what set it off. Homeowners can only speculate on what caused the security breach, and send authorities, merely hoping it is not theft. With an image sensor, you can see what’s happening in your home while at work, thus reducing false alarms.
