Veteran’s Day is coming up on November 11th.
Today on the FrontPoint Podcast we’re going to talk a little bit about how monitored home
security systems can provide peace of mind both to deployed military away and their families
back at home. Alright Peter, FrontPoint has a lot of different unique customer segments;
one of them is military. Tell me why a FrontPoint system is particularly suited for someone
who might be stationed overseas. Well Greg good question. We actually have a number of
military subscribers and the thing that separates them from a regular subscriber is the separation.
It could be months or in some cases up to a year that these folks are away from home.
So the idea that they can keep in touch with their families and also keeps tabs on what’s
happening at home is really important to them. Tell me a little bit about how someone overseas
might use the system. They would use it in the way most folks would except that keeping
tabs while you’re away and especially when you’re half way around the world can mean
even more. Especially with interactive monitoring. For instance the ability to know when people
are coming or going or see who it is that is arming and disarming the systems, those
are the sort of features that those folks like. And for the people who are at home,
assuming it’s Mom or Dad that’s overseas, it’s comforting for them to know that the
person who is overseas can actually maintain tabs on what is happening at home.
Right and with video cameras I’m guessing it can even help with family communication
is that right? You’d be surprised how many of our military customers actually use the
cameras to keep in contact and in fact the ability to live view over an online connection
or an iPhone or even a Blackberry if you’ve got web connectivity can allow you to look
into your home over the wireless cameras. You can actually move the cameras around if
it’s one of our Pan and Tilt Cameras and really get the full picture.
You’re overseas and you’ve got family at home. What a great sense of security that
must feel like to be able to see your family and check when they come home and things like
that. Absolutely and as I said, it’s nice not only for the person who’s been deployed
but also for the people who are still at home to know that that level of connection is there.
Everybody knows what is going on and staying in touch. Fantastic. Sounds like FrontPoint
is a great system for deployed military. We think so. Alright Thanks Peter, great information.
Thank you everyone for joining us on this segment of the FrontPoint Podcast Series.
