Be has announced the launch of its new home monitor service, which is designed to be a modern security system that connects up to the customers broadband connection:
The Be home monitor service is a wireless indoor camera that connects to the Be Broadband service. Members arm the camera when they go out by pressing the “Armed” button on the keyfob remote. From then on, if it detects any movement, the camera will record what it sees.
Depending on how the service is set up, members will be alerted by SMS or sent a picture by MMS text and/or e-mail. Members can then access their online account to see what is going on at home from any online computer or even your phone if it is web-enabled. Members can also watch live streaming from the camera and view up to 100 stored alarm incidents.
Easy to install
Just like the Be box, Be home monitor service is plug and play. Just plug the camera into a power supply and connect it to the Be Box. Once the camera boots up, members can set up the online account via their PC. To make the camera wireless members only need to enter the security code and unplug the network cable.
The camera is wireless and can be positioned anywhere within range of the Be Box, making sure it does not face towards a window or bright light.
This clever use of broadband costs £150 to setup and there's also a £5 monthly service charge. This gives members ownership of the camera and unlimited access to their personalised account to view alarms and live streaming, and unlimited email alerts, subject to fair usage policy and 100 SMS and 10 MMS alerts per month.
