Piper voice chat
Piper voice chat - consolidating municipal services
The app did not immediately connect as I was going through set up. While the smart switch connected to the Piper with singular ease - just access the "Settings Start and then push the button on the device to be added - the two door/window sensors gave me a run for my money.
Everything about the Piper is controlled from the app. On prompt, I promptly named my Piper "The Sticky Web" for the traps I planned to use it to lay.
Since I was already going to need them anyways, I added two door/window sensors and one smart switch for controlling the living room lamp.
It arrived reliably by Fed Ex 2 days after purchase. The Piper - a chic, glossy-looking device - was already mounted on its stainless steel stand.
I work 12-hour days, and at least once a year, I travel.
I wanted a security system that could alert me of nefarious occurrences at the house in my absence.
It is beyond loud, particularly given its rather small form factor.
Moreover, it cannot be easily snuffed out, given that if the Piper is unplugged while the alarm is going off, it switches to the battery mode automatically.I ultimately opted for the Piper because it was the closest thing to a stand alone security system.I didn't just want automated products of which there are so many; if I had, I believe Smarthings would have been the better choice.I wanted automated products tailored specifically towards security, and the Piper won me over with not just its features, but with the fact that it can serve as a hub for Z-wave products that control door/window sensors and lighting as are necessary for security.The new Piper costs more for the promise of a better camera with night vision and a faster processor.Sparky snubs car washes, curfews, and speed limits, driving his poor dad to distraction.
