Your Scout security system is truly state-of-the-art. Not only is Scout versatile and aesthetically pleasing, but its sensors are networked with a Zigbee chipset, which creates a mesh network across your house and provides your home with the utmost protection. This allows Scout to integrate with other Zigbee-powered security devices, expanding your ability to customize your security system to your needs.
Read on to learn more about the technology Scout has to offer.
Your Base Station, Scout's hub, allows you to configure your entire security system through your smartphone or computer. It plugs directly into your internet router and works over WIFI. It also has a 3G cellular chip, which, upon activation, can be used with a monthly monitoring plan and covers you if your WIFI goes out. The device also has a backup battery in case of power outages.
Place an Arm/Disarm Panel at each door where you want to be able to arm or disarm your system. Since you can easily arm or disarm your Scout system using your smartphone, this panel is only necessary when you don't have your phone. The Arm/Disarm Panel utilizes RFID reader technology (read: no keycodes or buttons) and includes an Open/Close Sensor for its door.
Be notified the instant your door or window is opened a crack with Scout's Open/Close Sensors. With their easy push-and-stick installation, the Open/Close Sensors can also monitor internal doors that require a little extra protection (like liquor cabinets and safes). You'll need one Open/Close Sensor for each door or window that's accessible to potential intruders — usually those at ground level — except for doors equipped with an Arm/Disarm Panel.
Scout's state-of-the-art Motion Sensors cover the areas of your house where Open/Close Sensors can be bypassed. Use them in rooms where intruders could gain access without opening a window or door — rooms with lots of glass, for example. These devices aren't trigger happy, though; they won't be set off by pets under 40 lbs. Scout Motion Sensors are designed with versatility in mind — they can be mounted in a corner, or stand freely by themselves on a shelf.
