One of the common problems with technology in a crowded market like home automation is not trying to solve a real problem. iSmartAlarm identified a problem and has attempted to solve it: home security.
With a monitored security system, the monthly fee can be exorbitant. In addition, most alerts that are triggered are false alarms, creating more hassle than benefit. The iSmartAlarm takes a different approach, making an expandable system around the CubeOne, the system's central hub. You can add cameras, motion detectors, magnetic switches and power switches, plus everything is wireless.
Alerts are sent via email, text or push to a smartphone. From there, you can view cameras remotely and call 911 if necessary. The Preferred Package is available now for $199.
