Theft is another top danger to homeowners, and our next stop features a single device, the Point Smart Home Alarm, which detects motion, temperature changes, humidity, and sounds, like glass breaking.
Now what makes the Point Home Alarm unique?
We found that a lot of people really don't want cameras in their home.
Cameras can Invade on the sanctuary of your home.
Instead, we combined a lot of different sensors to detect things like burglary, other alarms going off, if there's a fire.
It instantly then sends you a notification to your phone.
On top of all of this, I hear that the Point Home Alarm is really easy to set up, is that right?

We have three different functions, click, doubleclick, and hold.
And you can add all sorts of different functions to those three triggers.
