AT&T Digital life Security System! I can monitor all that you indicated and more...on my iPad or iPhone, on AT&T cell service. I changed from ADT...(low tech), so glad I did. AT&T is very superior, high tech equipment, and priced reasonable.

home security

I bought a d-link live video monitor from best buy about 5 months ago, and it's working well so far. I have a thermometer in front of it showing inside temp. I can remotely rotate and tilt it, and have mounted it in a place where it can see both the front door and the back door with a simple rotate command. The app works well on my laptop PC, my iPad, and my android phone. It automatically resets whenever there is a power outage, as does my wifi, so at least so far, it seems to fill the need.
But as noted earlier, having a neighbor watching the place is good too.

EDIT: also, once you have bought this, there is no additional subscription service fee to run it thru their servers on the net. You simply create an account with them, and log in thru their portal.

My wants: video monitor of home in and out, would like to know it is secure, grass isn't tall enough to warrant anybody complaining of lack of attention, nothing laying around driveway to say nobody's home or been there for x number of days.
Found most people have a problem of yard maintenance guys showing up on their schedule or when they need to bill and not when it has to be done.
Almost everytime we have been away for extended periods we have come back to find: telephone books, unsubscribed newspapers, and messages hooked on the door knob or stuck in door that we missed the Jehovah's last visit.
I would like a monitoring system of multiple cameras that I can go to online and spot a problem so that I can call the right person to take care of it.

Is it possible?
I did the search function and this original post seemed best way to contact people already looking or those that have found solutions to my problem.
Thanks in advance to those that can point me in the right direction.

Bought a Q-See system from Costco online. 1080p, 3mp cameras, records, no monthly, can view from my I-phone. Downside is self install and have to run cat5 wire from dvr to each camera if your not handy. Good support from Q-See on setup.

As for thermostat we use a WFI connected thermostat (Honeywell). I can set both a low and high setting and if the temp goes past either of those settings it will send me a push notification on my phone. It's a very good system and will tell me if the temp in my house changes greatly either up or down. Also I can log into it at anytime and adjust the heat, create or change a schedule, turn my air on or off and see what the current temp is. Finally it will even send me a note if it looses communication with the net. Also it will send me a second note when communication is restored....

On the camera front. We use camera system called IZON. They work well and have the ability to sense motion (and or) noise. You can log into the cameras at anytime and view (live) what is going on in your home. These cameras are wireless and only need power and a WFI network to operate. In our case we use these cameras in several locations in our home and even have a couple looking out windows to detect movement in our yard and driveway. More important if a camera detects motion/noise it will begin recording and send me a notification on my phone that it just recorded an event. I can then log into the IZON website and review the event the camera recorded. At that point I can decide if I wish to call the police or it it just the lady from next door checking the house and watering the plants......

Neither the camera system or thermostat require any type of monthly fee. Its a one time cost to buy the hardware and after that you just need to maintain a live WIFI connection.

Hope this info helps.....

Cheers
Doug

I bought a Nest cam which senses motion and sound. When I am at home, I keep it in the AS. When away I simply move it into the house for monitoring. Since I already had a Nest thermostat, and "Protect" smoke alarm, I now have total monitoring with one app and there are no subscription fees, unless I wanted history video for the camera. After the free trial, I don't see the need for history for $100/year.

Hi Rich:

I have heard really good things about the nest camera and I already know their thermostat's a great. I was under the impression that you needed to buy a service from them for the camera to operate. Is this not correct?
Also will it send you a push notification or email if it detects motion?

Thanks

Doug

You only have to pay if you want history video saved in the cloud. It sends a notification to your phone when it senses motion or sound. I also use an old out of service phone at home (wireless still works even when phone is deactivated for calling) for when I'm gone and momma is home.

You can have multiple cameras as well.

Just so I understand here Rich. When it sends you a notice what do you get. Do you get a short video of the motion in captured? Of do you just get a notice that it captured something but no video.
Tks

When you have an old cell phone laying around which you replaced with a new one, only the cellular calling functions no longer work. All wireless functions still work. Why not use it as a wireless monitor for things like camera notifications? I keep it plugged in by the bed for the camera monitoring.

When you don't subscribe to history (starting at 10 days moving through time for $100/year ) you get live viewing after a notification or anytime you want to check in through the app.

I've had my iZon cameras installed for about 3 years now and they provide great peace of mind. I also have a whole house alarm system, that is monitored, that when it goes off, triggers the iZon (noise), so I get the email alert while the monitoring service is calling me to decide wether to dispatch the police or fire department. All my iZon camera's are plugged into UPS, as is all the major network appliances, to ensure that no loss of serve while the 20Kw generator comes on-line in case of power loss. Also installed a Nest thermostat when I built my home over 5 years ago. I've only had 1 false alarm, cause by cat, and could see the Sheriff walking around the exterior of the house checking windows and doors. Plus this reduces my home owners insurance premiums. Since I live in the country, I watch my neighbors home just like they watch mine. One other thing, I have several light switches upgraded using WeMo so that I can configure certain or all light to be programmed to turn on or off on a schedule or on demand via my iPhone through the internet.
