  • Super simple installation
  • Records on a Micro SD card
  • Remote control
  • Date & time stamp

Is there a room in your home or office that you wonder what might be going on in there? Rather than investing in a complex surveillance system, just hang this clock on the wall. It doesn’t get any simpler than that! The accurate quartz clock runs on one AA battery, sold separately. The camera/DVR is powered by an AC adapter, which will appear as though it is powering the clock. The camera sees through a nearly invisible pinhole at the six o’clock position, and the DVR hides behind the scenes, recording on a Micro SD card up to 32GB (sold separately). You can download the video to your PC by removing the Micro SD card or via a USB cable (included). Program the DVR, using the remote control, to record when the camera detects motion. Read More

The Future of Door Locks is Here! Lock & Unlock Your Doors with a Touch-To-Open Bluetooth Deadbolt!

Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth Door Lock - Venetian Bronze

Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth Door Lock – Venetian Bronze

  • Compatible with iOS devices (iPhone 4S, 5, 5S, 5C) only
  • Open and enter your home by simply tapping the deadbolt
  • No smartphone, no problem. KEVO also works with a key fob
  • Deadbolt intelligently knows if you’re inside or outside your home
  • Send eKeys to friends, family, and more via the app
  • See and control who enters your home and at what times

Locking and unlocking doors has never been easier with this Touch-To-Open Bluetooth Deadbolt! Pair your smartphone or included key fob and simply tap the deadbolt to lock or unlock your door! Home security for family and friends is always high on any homeowners list of priorities. Traditional key entry methods are good, but troublesome when you need to enter or leave quickly, or are carrying a lot of items as you fumble with your key ring. Here is when Kwikset’s 925 KEVO Deadbolt 11P (Venetian Bronze) comes in to provide comfort and security with its simple, bump-proof, design ideal for left or right-handed doors. Unlike normal locks, Kevo is a smart deadbolt that uses a touch-to-open convenience entry method when a Bluetooth connected smartphone (iOS iPhone 4S, 5 , 5S, 5C only) or key fob (smart keys) are within range of the deadbolt. Keep your phone in your pocket or purse. No more fumbling for your keys. Just touch the lock to open.

Entering and leaving your home is easier since you can unlock the door by tapping the deadbolt. The deadbolt still operates like a standard mechanical lock, so keyed entry is possible if a connected smart key is not detected. After tapping the deadbolt, a blue LED ring light spins around the deadbolt indicating it’s searching for a certified smart key. If a certified smart key is detected, the light turns green and unlocks (yellow when locking), but turns red if a smart key is not detected. However, if a smart key is out-of-range, a magenta light will appear, prompting you to move closer. Of course, these lights can tell anyone, friendly or not, about the occupancy of the home, but Kwikset has programmed the lights to only appear if the deadbolt is certain you are outside. If the deadbolt has the slightest inclination you’re inside, it’ll only show the blue light and then nothing so your privacy and security is protected.

It can be set to continuously record, activate only upon motion detection or overwrite which will simply record over the oldest saved material when available memory runs out. The Xtreme Life Teddy Bear Camera operates wirelessly and its battery can be recharged via an included AC charging adapter.
