SMART Web Cams

The new smart cameras are an affordable and excellent way to monitor what is going on outside your home as well as inside.  They were invaluable when the Caldor Fire came within a mile of our Lake Tahoe neighborhood.  We were able to monitor the status of the forest behind us, see what was going on in our backyard, and watch live the firetrucks and police action on the street.  Sharing updates with the neighbors was incredibly appreciated.

Benefits of a Smart Cam

  • Peace of mind knowing you can immediately identify the source of a strange noise outside your home.

  • Converse in real time with that source of noise.

  • Get notifications on your phone of movement from any of your cameras.

  • Stored video footage of all activity.

  • Not only identify if a package was delivered to your front door, but also prove non-delivery should a package be missing for reimbursement.

  • Know when your children, or spouse, returned home safely.

My passion is helping others, so let me help bring safety and peace of mind to you. 

References and testimonials available.

I currently work with three manufacturers - Wyze, Ring, and Nest.

I have researched Arlo, but due to their cost, it is not one of the ones I use at this time. Everything I have read claims Wyze, Ring, and Nest are just as good, if not better, for much less money.  As I research more, I may add Arlo to my offerings.  If you are set on Arlo, we can discuss.

An additional consideration is to add an alarm system with third-party monitoring.  Many home insurance companies give premium discounts.  My insurance went down almost $200 a year which paid for the alarm and the monitoring in less than two years.

​Wyze is my preferred cam.  I have installed close to fifty Wyze cameras and they all have worked flawlessly .  In every credible review, they are always in the top 5, and always earn Best Affordable.  But don't assume the more expensive manufacturers are better quality.  Wyze cameras were developed to offer a low cost solution and they are the reason all other manufacturers had to cut their prices significantly to compete.  Wyze was an industry changer.
