Scout communications use 128-bit SSL security - the same level of encryption used by banks and financial institutions. The Scout system also features a back-up battery (included) and a 3G cellular chip (activation required) to keep your system running when the power, internet, or both go out.
Your Scout system is completely customizable. We’ll recommend a system for you on the pre-order page, but you can customize it to fit your needs. Each system needs to have a base station and a sensor for the front door, but besides that, the configuration you choose is completely up to you.
The Scout system features a back-up battery (included) and a 3G cellular chip (activation required) to keep your system running when the power, internet, or both go out.
Scout utilizes a Zigbee chipset and plans to become part of the Zigbee alliance. We will be integrating Scout with other security products on the market that utilize Zigbee. Our goal is to make your system as customizable as possible and we’re committed to giving you the flexibility to integrate with other security devices.
Your base station will be plugged in, so you will only need to rely on the battery in the event of a power outage. In that case, the base station will operate for approximately one week without power. The battery life in the other sensors around the house will depend on usage. We expect the batteries to last six to 12 months with average use.
You can alway control Scout through our mobile website, which will work on any internet-connected phone or computer. Additionally, we will have streamlined applications for iOS and Android devices rolling out closer to the shipping date.
If you lose your phone, you can still arm and disarm your system with the RFID Arm / Disarm panel (using your key fob) or with your computer. You can also disable your lost phone from arming or disarming the system until you find, or replace, your phone.
Not hard at all! Just plug the Scout base station into your internet router and our software will guide you through the process. The sensors are wireless, so getting them in position is easy. Set up the preferences for your system and you’ll be ready to use Scout in no time.
It depends on how you choose to monitor your system. If you choose to self-monitor your system using your home’s WIFI (free) and handle your own alerts then, yes, Scout must have an internet connection to function. However, each Scout system has a 3G cellular chip that can be activated to provide professional monitoring for as little as $10 per month. In that case, no, your internet does not have to be connected for Scout to function.
It’s entirely up to you. Each Scout system has a 3G cellular chip that can be activated to provide professional monitoring of your system for as little as $10 per month. Alternatively, you may choose to self-monitor your system for free using your smartphone and your home WIFI connection.
Scout lets you choose how to respond to every alert. Each Scout system has a 3G cellular chip that can be activated to provide professional monitoring of your system for as little as $10 per month. With professional monitoring, Scout would be able to notify the police on your behalf. If you choose to self-monitor your system (free), you can set up customized responses. While Scout would not call the police, you may set up an automatic response to dial the police on your phone (or any phone) when an intrusion occurs.
Most home insurance companies do offer some level of discount to their customers for having a home security system installed. However, you would have to speak directly with your agent to determine if Scout would qualify your policy for such a discount.
