When having a home security system meant installing an alarm and just hoping for the best, gone are the days. Today, wireless cameras are integral to keeping your home safe. Are you getting the most out of your system?
New cameras, such as Vivint’s Ping, do more than just take pictures. Ping is the first indoor camera that enables true two-way talk with the ability to both calls in and calls out, making it easy for families to communicate and connect.
These features are great for home security, but that’s just the start. Here are a few other creative ways you can use Ping:
1. Getting teenagers out of bed
With Ping, you can see whether the kids have gotten out of bed and traipsed their way to the bathroom to brush their teeth. Use Ping to remind them to get up for the second (or third) time if they’re still sleeping. Your kids can also use Ping to talk to you, so expect to take your morning coffee with cream, sugar and some good old-fashioned teenage attitude.
Mornings can be rushed when you’re trying to get yourself and your kids up, dressed, fed and out the door in an hour. Who has time to go back and forth between various rooms to make sure teens don’t sleep through their alarms?
2. Monitoring pets
There won’t be as much two-way communication in this case, but Ping is a great resource for getting your dog off the couch. Its camera and voice capabilities let you check to see what your furry friend is up to at any given time. And, thanks to the video clips, you can check to see whether the dog really did tear or break that vase up those couch cushions.

3. Practicing better home care
Ping could be a big help to both you and your loved ones if you have elderly family members living with you. You can check on them no matter where you are inside or outside the house. They can use Ping to talk to you and ask for help if they need it if you’re caring for people with mobility issues.

Wireless security cameras like Ping are the next step in home security, but they let you do more than keep an eye on your home. Smart technology makes your home camera a multi-functional tool you can use to make sure everyone in your family is safe, healthy and on schedule.
