Keep your eye on this Sparrow. LaserShield Systems just announced the Sparrow, a “plug & go” wireless, instant home security solution.
Designed for web use, the product is actually a web adapter that links home security with digital phones 24/7. No more relying on just standard phone lines, which is a good thing since a lot of people no longer rely on them anyway.
The setup sends out a continuous signal at regular intervals throughout the day to Sparrow to make sure it’s always operational. If there’s a breach, the Sparrow is on it, sending the info out over the web—and to a monitoring service.
The Sparrow is available now for $129.99. However, you’ll also need the LaserShield Instant Security System, which runs $199.95 for the master alarm unit, a wireless motion detector and two keychain remotes. Monitoring service is an additional $29.95 per month with a $25 one-time activation fee.
