Link Interactive Unboxing

Link Interactive Unboxing


Gabe Turner: Hello folks, this is Gabe at
Security Baron, and today we’re unboxing the Link Interactive Home Security System. Let’s dive in. [music] Gabe: If you’d like to see a list of our favorite
security systems, google “Security Baron best home security systems.” If you have a question about today’s unboxing,
leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you. Let’s jump into this unboxing of the Link
Interactive Home Security System. If you’ll note, it comes in a pretty nondescript
box. We just have our address on the top and otherwise
it’s just a cardboard. A placard that looks kind of like a fake license
plate. This part says, “Home automation and security
sensors.” This part says, “Home automation and cameras.” In the middle we have our Hub, camera, doorbell,
big old Kwikset Smart Lock, and a host of sensors. Let’s get this out of the way. Now I’m going to clean this up a little bit
and get a look at what pieces I’ve got with my Link Interactive System. I’ve got some door contacts, these actually
look like versions I’ve that seen before with other home security systems. Got my Hub, which also looks very familiar
to me in terms of the way it’s laid out. I have another piece to my Hub in case you
want to mount it separately in a different way. My electronic deadbolt, alarm.com, WiFi doorbell
with a camera, indoor security camera, and my literature. Here we are with the Link Interactive Hub,
some may say it’s the most important part of any system. We have a speaker, a couple of actual buttons
here. A home and a plus sign are touch screen, and
the Link Interactive logo at the bottom. I will note that the Link Interactive logo
looks a lot like the alarm.com logo which we’re getting for a lot of the products in
this system. They’ve outsourced it to alarm.com. I’m interested to look at those products next. Let’s look at our WiFi indoor camera. It’s got an alarm.com camera, let’s check
it out. This camera comes with an aesthetic similar
to many that we’ve seen before. We’ve got the white on the black, though there
does seem to be some pretty significant rotation and articulation capacity for this camera. I can go like this. I can move it this way. On the bottom I see a rubber mat which is
useful. On the back I’ve got, it looks to be an Ethernet
cable and a power adapter. We’ve got this glossy perimeter. We’ve got matte surrounding the lens. There’s matte surrounding the lens and most
of it is actually pretty flush. There’s nothing protruding which I like. If you look at the profile, you’ll note that
I can actually put my finger all of the way across it, no issues. It looks like that’s the slot for possibly
an SD card. Maybe that denotes some local storage on this
camera. This is pretty classic indoor security camera. The box tells that it’s 10 ADT so I’m looking
forward to seeing what that looks like. Hold on, let’s take a break. Every month here at Security Baron we like

have to do is subscribe to our page and leave a comment on a video like the one you’re watching
right now. You’ll be entered to win a $200 Amazon gift
card. Now back to your regular scheduled programming. Here’s our video doorbell. It says I have WiFi video doorbell, SkyBell
HD edition. I like HD, I like having high definition video. Color night vision, two-way audio, motion
sensor, records video, that is useful. Here we go. It’s very snug. There’s not a lot to that. We’ve seen a few SkyBells and this seems to
be pretty straightforward in terms of a doorbell camera. This is a SkyBell and I’m interested to see
how well it works. Next we’ve got the Kwikset Smartcode touchpad
electronic deadbolt. Try saying that three times fast. Wow, this is a heavy box. I’m not going to say any different. This is heavy, there’s a lot going on in here. Here we go. Got our deadbolt here and a few other elements. I do love bubble wrap. That has two on each one so we’re going to
get five. One, two, three, four, five, numeric buttons
for this keypad with a lock button in the middle. You always want to have a physical backup
to your digital system, so here we are with our keys. In case you have someone in your family who
doesn’t really like to use technology. You all have one, no judgment here. Other part of our lock, these two pieces will
connect, hopefully quickly for you. Hopefully, it’s not a long installation process,
and the actual deadbolt itself. All these pieces together make for our Smartlock. I’m interested to see how it all works together. Motion sensors you’re going to want to place
in the frames of your windows and your doors. With the small piece on the part of the window
or door that moves. The actual window or the actual door. This is the part that you’ll place on your
frame. These are always are set to the same exact
device. A larger white piece to blend in, and a smaller
piece. Usually, you’ll use 3M, as I see here you
use 3M, and you’ll attach it to your frame. This is the same thing here, but I’ll probably
put one on my door and one on my window during my setup process. Let’s go to my favorite part and the last
thing, and that’s your yard sign. Don’t forget your yard sign is an effective
deterrent. People will see, “Hey, this person’s protected
by Link Interactive” and they might say, “Hey, you know what I might want to get one too”,
to protect what they have. Your potential intruders will always see the
Link Interactive and think, “OK, this is a house that maybe I don’t want to mess with
because they have a team of professionals at their disposal.” Now you see all the components that we received
with our Link Interactive Home Security System. I’m looking forward to setting it up and see
how well this whole system works. If you appreciated today’s video, give us
