I’ll be completely honest here, the thought of home security cameras scared me in the past. Not the cameras themselves, but the assumption of the complexity of it all. I was like a total dinosaur and thought that all home security cameras had to be placed in the corners of room ceilings and all exterior cameras on tall poles and roofs. Until Hive brought me back to modernity. I mean, how stylish is this little Hive View Indoor Security camera? Doesn’t interfere with the interior whatsoever and it’s so smart I wish we had gotten one sooner. There are so many wonderful things about this, but isn’t it incredible that it’s pretty much “mobile” and can be placed anywhere? And you control your home’s security on your phone with Hive’s HomeShield super intelligent app that sends you notifications and texts or calls when the alarm is triggered.
Just because you have a new security system at home, doesn’t mean you need to be “featured” in the movies either, though your little furry friends might make an appearance here and there! You could place your Smart Camera a few feet higher though and here’s the fun part – you can talk to your pets using the two-way audio system in Hive View.. Pointing the camera at the entrance or even outside out of the window to keep a watchful eye on the area you’d like protected is so easy with Hive. You can even set alarms remotely from your phone, tablet or even Apple watch. We’ve recently enjoyed a little staycation as a family and have tried and tested the “Away” features, where the camera kept an eye on our property while we were away. Isn’t it incredible that you can check on your home even while you’re away and all on your smart phone? I know this is 21st century, but I’m blown away. We don’t have Alexa, but you can even arm your home security as you leave the house by saying: “Alexa, arm HomeShield”. I mean….
This indoor camera is very easy to install and I would imagine that outdoor camera wouldn’t be that complex either – just a few screws and knowledge of a drill. I love that anyone can do it themselves and from the start choose and get familiarised with the settings right for that family and property. No need to call a “guy” and worry about the extra installation costs. Talking of costs – Hive home security cameras are very affordable and currently have incredible deals too! Great gift for someone who’s just moved homes and not just Christmas!
