CES 2013: iSmart Alarm watches your home

1:57 /

The system comes with door sensors, and a 350 degree camera controlled via smartphone.

Hey guys, Sharon Vaknin here from CES 2013 taking a first look at the iSmart Alarm home alarm system. What you're looking at here is basically a DIY home alarm system. You buy the components and place them around your house. The kit comes with two contact sensors for doors and windows letting you know when a door has been open. It comes with a motion detector and a 350 degree camera. So, from your iPhone when you're away from home, you can go ahead and access that camera. But not only can you see what it see, you can also control where it go. So, just like that, I can move it around with my finger. It goes 350 degrees and it'll go up and down. So you can keep an eye of everything while you're out and about. If your house has been broken into, this guy will sound off and you'll also receive an SMS to your phone, letting you know that your house has been compromised and you shouldn't go home. And using the iPhone app, you can arm and disarm your alarm while you're away as well as use a panic button. Last of all, the system also comes with two of these key chain remote controls that if you don't have a smartphone like a kid, you can still control the system. Eventually, you'll also be able to buy extra components. So if you want an extra camera or an extra motion sensor, you'll be able to purchase those a la carte. While the company is trying to emphasize about the system is that it's DIY and then you only have a one-time fee of $250 for all of these components, so no monthly fees, no contracts. If you want this entire system, it'll cost you $250 but if we take out the camera, it's only $80. And you can expect to see the system come out in April. For CNET.com. I'm Sharon Vaknin from CES 2013.
