Your $199.50 purchase (it's currently available online for $149.50) also comes with two battery-powered door/window sensors.

You can stick these sensors anywhere in your house, but it works best to situate them in view of the camera.

That's because you can program the camera to pan in the direction of the sensors whenever they detect activity.

The Pivot can also act as a Bluetooth speaker and pair with additional Zmodo accessories, like its connected Greet doorbell.
