Everyone can appreciate the feeling of being safe in their own home. The hard truth is, there is a burglary every 13 seconds. A staggering 34 percent of burglars will enter through your front door, 23 percent through a first floor window, and 22 percent through a back door. It’s impossible to make a home 100 percent impenetrable to outside factors, but it is possible to lessen those odds by adding a home security system that checks off multiple boxes.
Home security is getting an upgrade thanks to Deep Sentinel, a home security camera that utilizes cameras, artificial intelligence (AI), and continuous monitoring to prevent break-ins, domestic crimes, and car theft. Think of all those Christmas packages that could have been saved from thieves! Dave Selinger, co-founder of homeowner marketplace, Redfin was spurred by such high numbers of burglaries to create a solution for homeowners.
“Traditional security systems passively monitor, but don’t truly protect,” Selinger says. “Everyone should feel safe in their homes, and with Deep Sentinel’s personal security guards watching over you 24/7, you finally can.”
Selinger is particularly proud of the custom-designed multi-pronged approach to security. The smart cameras are set to work in tandem with an on-premises AI processing hub that can organize a surveillance zone for a residence in real time. Created through a partnership with Ammunition, the hardware is an amalgamation of feedback from more than 50 police departments. Selinger says, “That’s one of the reasons police response times with Deep Sentinel are 70 percent better on average than with the competition.”
The IP65-rated cameras are waterproof and can last months on a single charge. They can record in HD with a 130 degree field view, a wake up standby within 250 ms, and boast motion detected infrared LEDs with a 35 ft range. The AI hub itself has a 64 GB memory and can store up to 6 months of video footage.
If the system were to detect a crime, strobing red lights would light up, and the camera would begin to record, transmitting the feed to Deep Sentinel’s remote surveillance center. Staff are then able to intervene with two-way speakers or contact law enforcement. Additionally, they can set off sirens that are the loudest on the market at 104 decibels.
A set of three cameras, one hub, and four rechargeable batteries start at a price of $400 with an added subscription of $50 per month and a one year commitment.
The Deep Sentinel will debut at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
