Camera and security system
The Piper NV HD nightvision is a very well-equipped all in one alarm system, and is easily installed (plug and play). It’s equipped with everything you need for an optimal sense of security: a full HD (180 degree) video-camera, an integrated movement sensor, temperature gauge, hygrometer, sound detection and 105dB siren. Place the camera in a convenient spot in the house and monitor the whole area with one camera. When a suspicious signal is detected, the camera starts recording and you receive a notification on your smartphone. See what is happening in your house live or check the recordings on your cloud.
The Piper app allows you to monitor your entire house and set all your preferences. The app is clear and your preferences are easy to configure. You determine the rules in every scenario and you receive guidance in creating those rules. For example, you can choose the type of alerts you want to receive, if the siren should go off, if you have pets and if any follow up is needed. Configure who should receive a notification when something happens. The panic button immediately sets off the siren. When it comes to insight and monitoring, the app has a wide array of possibilities. A split screen allows you to focus the same camera on four areas. Set one quadrant showing a complete overview, one quadrant allowing you to zoom in on a drawer with confidential documents, one quadrant for an important door and one for the open kitchen. You have several options for zooming in, and even when zoomed the camera maintains a clear image.
Connect your door- and window sensors to your system, so you can see where the alert is coming from with the app. The Piper contains battery and has an integrated anti-theft alarm. You receive a notification when your camera is being stolen and the camera continues to record as long as it is connected to your network. The Piper has both a high-quality speaker and microphone. You can use the system to talk to your partner or children, but also to scare off uninvited guests when they’re in the house. The camera is equipped with infrared sensors and provides a clear image, even at night.
Good to know
This system is without a doubt a good start for a smart home system, in which you can link all of your smart devices and define scenarios. Piper works with the Z-wave protocol. An increasing number of devices works with this protocol. You can integrate these devices into your system. An example would be smart lighting. All of the recordings are saved in the cloud, for free. Your camera does not have a slot for an SD card.
