No matter whether you have a huge family or a small family or even live alone, safety is something we all want especially when we are in our homes. Installing an alarm system is one of the easiest ways to ensure the safety of your family and decrease and deter possible intruders in your home whether your away during the day or asleep at night. Statistically speaking, an estimated 3.7 million household burglaries occurred each year from 2003 through 2007 with seven percent of them involving some sort of violent victimization and in 2011, the average dollar loss among households that were burglarized was $2,120. (Bureau of Justice Statistics). What makes matters worse is that single women with children experience the highest rates while being present in their own home! Scary isn’t it? Don’t you think it’s time to protect yourself and your loved ones regardless of your marital status?
Take a look at Piper. Piper is a brand new home automation and video monitoring device that lets you monitor and control what happens at home day or night. Piper has three full customizable modes that allow you take control of your home when your away during the day or night, when your on vacation and when your also home. It comes with an Intruder Deterrent Siren that goes off when the security mode is breached and features both motion and sound detection with its built in sensor and microphone for sound detection. In case something should happen Piper will send you important notifications by push messages, texts, emails and even phone calls.
Another important feature of Piper is its video monitoring capabilities. By offering a 180 degrees panoramic view, Piper can view an entire room and record HD video that can be watched either live or recorded from anytime anywhere from your phone or tablet. When you’re away and want to check on your family or pets, Piper can be used as a live intercom also. Just like other apps that you can program your home to, Piper allows you to program the lights in your home, set up window and door perimeters and let you check your home’s important vitals by automating everything through the Piper app.
In an attempt to lighten up the mood when it comes to protecting your home and family, Piper has released a couple of amusing videos that are part of its #MysteriesExplained campaign on Twitter. In the first video, entitled ‘Missing Sock’, a woman is neatly folding her laundry when she suddenly notices she is somehow left with only one sock. Video footage is shown captured the night before on her smartphone revealing that a peg legged pirate had entering her home and taking one sock from the dryer. In another video entitled ‘Morning Breath’, a sleepy man wakes up in bed next to his wife and when he starts to say, ‘Good Morning’ his wife turns away in reaction to what we all know to be ‘morning breath.’ Recorded footage from the night before on his tablet shows 3 fishermen actually pouring smelly boots water into his mouth as he sleeps. The first video ‘Missing Sock’ can be viewed attached here and the other can be viewed on Piper’s YouTube channel by clicking here. Piper has a retail price of either $199 or $269.
