Ever been out and wanted a quick peek to check on your home? High definition live streaming, playback, recording, and back-up capabilities, means you can view footage anywhere in the world using a smartphone or tablet with Yale’s Smart Living CCTV surveillance system.

The old adage ‘prevention is better than the cure’ rings true when it comes to protecting your property and loved ones. A CCTV system acts as an effective visual deterrent to any would-be burglars by its very presence alone, reducing the risk of you falling victim to crime in the first place, and with remote viewing capabilities business and family owners are provided with an increased sense of security and peace of mind.

The Yale Smart Living CCTV surveillance system is a DIY system complete with digital video recorder (DVR), cameras and cabling. It features built-in intelligent video analytics, enabling the system to detect and analyse moving objects from the CCTV cameras. Not only will the system record these events, but you will immediately be alerted via push notifications sent to your mobile.

Viewing live or recorded footage from the system can be done easily via a local screen connected to the DVR or remotely on a smartphone or tablet using the Yale Smart Living VIEW app.

With enhanced night vision and an IP67 weatherproof rating, you’ll get good footage even in the lowest light or worst weather conditions. In addition, you can tailor the system to your needs by adding additional cameras.

Smart Living products are fully controllable from the mobile app, available for Apple and Android for free.
