Video Surveillance, Smart Home Networking: Modern systems do not cost much. But they give security and security.

The smartphone of Peter B. vibrates in distant Philadelphia. It is pitch-dark at home in the Hochtaunus district near Frankfurt. And yet, the event manager sees on his display how unknown people move about his property. He was alarmed by his video surveillance via push function. Through his app Peter B. follows the strangers by means of the freely swiveling outdoor camera. As they work on the garage door, he activates the house lighting and turns on the hi-fi system.

And they offer more than just protection against burglary: the user can see from anywhere whether the baby sleeps quietly in a child's bed or whether the relatives in need of care are in safe hands.
