Very exciting product, I am curious if its founders have thought about adding any biometric modality (as an additional factor)?
Scout is a wireless security system that starts at $120 and is completely removable. The handsomely-designed units can protect windows and doors in your home and you can program reactions to various events including and up to calling the police.
I’ve seen a number of home alarm systems come and go over the years and this one, at least, has that Nest quality that we all know and love. The units come in three different finishes – white, black, and the afore-mentioned wood trim – and each installation is customizable online.
Service over Wi-Fi is free and the system will send alerts and even dial the police for you on your connected phone. However, the units also contain a 3G radio that can be activated for $10 a month and which will connect to a monitoring service that, in turn, will call the police, you, or a loved one.
