Verizon Wireless Touts New Intuitive Home Security System

HOUSTON, TX — As families begin planning and prepping for their summer vacations, Verizon is announcing a new intuitive home security system they say will learn normal household routines and adjust accordingly to better detect suspicious activities.

         The Canary Camera and Home Security System offers plug-and-play set up and integrates wireless connectivity to deliver HD video and audio monitoring directly to a smartphone or tablet. The system senses when home occupants come and go, and automatically arms and disarms, adding value over traditional security systems that require a disarm code be entered.

         “The Canary Camera and Home Security System delivers convenience and peace of mind at an incredible value to customers,” said Krista Bourne, president – Houston/Gulf Coast Region, Verizon Wireless. “Verizon’s 4G LTE network provides seamless HD video and audio streaming directly to a smartphone or tablet so a person can keep an eye and an ear on their home from nearly anywhere, whether they’re a few miles down the road or enjoying a cross country vacation.”

         If Canary detects potentially suspicious activity, it will send a wireless alert to a homeowner’s smartphone or tablet. Through the Canary app, the security system streams a live video feed from inside the home – at night, it uses night vision video – so the user can distinguish between a false alarm and an emergency. If a threat exists, the customer can sound Canary’s siren and alert police with the touch of a button. All data streamed from Canary is encrypted to ensure a secure connection.

         Canary automatically records and uploads security footage to VZ Cloud, so if a customer misses a smartphone alert, there is still an archive of home activity that’s remotely accessible. Canary includes 12 hours of free video storage on VZ Cloud. For $9 per month, a customer receives a week of video storage. A separate subscription is available for those who would like to add professional home monitoring.

         The Canary Camera and Home Security System, which also measures home air quality, temperature and humidity, costs $250 and requires no monthly fee or contract.
