The Angee home security system is the only one with a video camera that rotates 360 degrees as it detects motion. And this high definition camera has smart zones; you can set up specific zones for monitoring. But Angee is more than just a video surveillance setup. It’s a self-monitored home security system, points out an article on securitygem.com.
Angee isn’t the first self-monitored home security system that allows the user to view a crime at their home in real-time. However, one feature in particular distinguishes Angee from other similar systems. And that is the versatility of the security tags.
So let’s say the small cylindrical Angee unit is on a cocktail table in your living room, and you have numerous windows throughout the house’s many rooms, and other door entries. Just slap a tag on these other windows and doors. When a tag detects activity it will send an alert to your smartphone (Angee comes with an app for this).
- The tags will detect motion via two motion sensors including the one that fitness researchers use to measure a person’s daily physical activity: the accelerometer.
- The motion sensors will also detect open and close movement, such as that from a window.
- The tags, along with the base unit, will detect movement.
- You can also activate or deactivate Angee with your voice alone, and if someone else who’s unauthorized speaks the same password, Angee will reject it.
Though one of Angee’s competitors also uses tags, its tags don’t provide the extent of operation that Angee’s does, such as the detection of motion or voice arm/disarm. Angee is also the only such system that can answer your phone.
Unlike one of its competitors, Angee lacks a flood sensor and a few other features like an outdoor smart switch. Angee also does not integrate with other online services yet.
But if you’re primarily interested in home security, the absence of some of these other features won’t be a big deal. Angee makes up for this absence with some cool features like night vision and sound detection (though it’s not the only system that has these features), plus limited free cloud storage.
