Like many of you, I work from home, alone. We live in a safe community devoid of a lot of criminal activity, but, sometimes the occasional noise or random stranger wandering through the neighborhood gets me can get me a bit paranoid throughout the day. We decided to get a home security system. We connected with MyFox who allowed us to shared a product for our honest review.
In their own words:
“With the MyFox Smart Home Alarm Security System, you can prevent break-ins before they happen thanks to door and window vibration analysis that can tell the difference between normal events and potential threats. If the IntelliTAG door and window sensor analyzes vibrations specific to break-in attempts, it immediately triggers a 110dB siren and ensures your home remains safe. In addition to better home security, the MyFox home alarm provides a seamless user experience. It is easy to install and use. It includes a wireless keyfob that goes on your keychain or child’s backpack that automatically disables the system when you enter your home and notifies you when your kids get back home from school. No need for you or the babysitter to type in a security code on the wall to get in and no more false alarms. MyFox also allows you to create your MyFox Community; a trusted network of family, friends, and neighbors to grant them access to your system so they can keep an eye on your home when you are away.”
I love it because:
It’s easy to set up.
We had it installed and ready to go in no time. No tools required- we just unpacked our components, downloaded the app, and connected the WiFi.
It has a free smart phone app (for use with iPhones and Androids) that helps keep me appraised of any goings-on on the homefront, Push notifications keep me updated on whether or not the alarm is an emergency or not.
Meaning, there are no monthly fees. We get alerts directly from the home base as to any potential issues. We can use the keyfob to arm or disarm the system remotely.
As with most things in life, prevention is key. It has anti-intrusion sensors that alert us to a possible break-in before it happens by sensing the unique vibrations in an entry point. As soon as the vibration is measured, the 110 decibel alarm will sound before someone actually breaks in.
There are several hardware components available, including a hub, a siren, an IntelliTAG sensor, a camera, and a key fob. Everything is centralized in the hub (aka, the Link) that works off WiFi and an encrypted signal.
The camera recordings are stored on Myfox secured cloud servers for playback from anywhere. You can also link it to your Google Drive account for even more storage, if needed.
After looking for a home security system for a while, I’m glad we wound up with MyFox. It’s a great option for those that want a proactive, self-monitored home security system. It has several component options to help you customize it to your own situation. Add more cameras, fobs, and sensors as needed. Overall, it’s a highly recommended purchase for those seeking security while working from the comforts of home.
