LG's DIY security system wins -- but only if you want ADT

Smart Home
[MUSIC] This is LG's Smart Security Wireless Camera. This is similar to the Piper NV and the Canary All-In-One security device. This thing can do a whole lot. First, it has a built in ninety-three decibel siren which is pretty loud It has motion detection but it also has some other surprise features. So like the [UNKNOWN] it has a built in zwave pub, so you can actually pair and connect area zwave devices basically whatever you want. So, I connected a water censor. It also has [UNKNOWN] so you can control your variance zwave connect your devices with your voice, so turning on the lights or turning them off, and you can also create your own custom messages, things like Alexa record a video clip. As far as specs go this camera is roughly comparable to the Nest Cam, it has 1080P live streaming and also 130 degree diagonal field of view. But compare that to the Piper NV which also has 1080P but it has a 180 degree Fisheye lens. So in terms of wide angle, Piper definitely does it better. The coolest thing about it as an all-in-one DIY device is that it actually works with ADT Canopy. So Canopy is ADT's open API, that extends ADT's Basically, professional monitoring and other camera and video storage to this device. Instead of having to be locked into a several month contract and deal with termination fees and installation fees. It's on a month-to-month basis and you can opt in to whatever level you want but, it's limited and that there's no free option. So, if you don't wanna pay for ADP, then, there's really no reason to get this device because Piper and Canary would do it better. [MUSIC]
