Video Solutions with Features End Users Want

Written by shift-admin

Whether you are talking to a new homeowner or someone who has been in their home for a long time, chances are security has become a concern. In fact, according to a recent Houzz survey of over 146,000 participants, there has been an increase in the demand for security when renovating. The survey details that the share of renovating homeowners integrating home security grew 50% (increasing from 10% to 15%) from 2015 to 2017.

One way you can address this need is with professionally installed HD video cameras. As part of our Next Generation of Honeywell Total Connect HD Video cameras, we’ve introduced two award-winning indoor cameras, the IPCAM-WIC1 and IPCAM-WIC2, which are packed with features your customers need and want. With just the tap of an app, customers can view live video, get video notification alerts, receive video clips, and more — anytime, anywhere on their smart devices.

Users can:

• Look in on their homes

• See near and far—light or dark

• Hear what’s happening

• Speak to family, friends, pets, workers or others

• Take a snapshot of activity

• Pinch to zoom for a closer view

• Enable privacy mode as needed

These indoor cameras adapt to available bandwidth to support all connected lifestyles. What’s more, with the flexible design of the IPCAM-WIC2, homeowners can even mount it on the ceiling. Video is triggered by motion or sound and clips are saved in the cloud for easy storage and retrieval. These Wi-Fi enabled devices are a great timesaver offering easy QR Code installation and very simple mounting.

These cameras offer a perfect opportunity to sell additional hardware and subscription services, help expand your security and connected home offering and extend your reach to new customers.

Satisfying Customers with Remote Home Monitoring

Having customers with video awareness products may also help lower your attrition rate because more system interaction means improved awareness, control and peace of mind.

For working moms, it’s very comforting to be able to look in on children when they are home during the day. They can zoom in and even see facial expressions and “be there” for their “firsts” when they do something new. Alerts are sent if a baby is crying and working parents can talk to their kids through the camera. They can also get other sound notifications. For example, if something falls in the living room, the homeowner would be notified and can check the video to make sure everything’s okay.
