Be Offers Subscribers Remote Surveillance

Because you know 'they' are after you...

ISPs offer many incentives to try and differentiate themselves in a sardine packed sector, but this is a first as far as I know…

Be, the O2 owned provider which was first to bring ADSL2+ technology to the UK, has announced it will offer customers the chance to set up a remote surveillance system in their homes.

Dubbed the ‘Be Home Monitor Service’, it provides a remote wireless indoor camera which communicates with the Be Broadband connection. A user sets the camera when they go out by pressing the ‘Armed’ button on a keyfob remote. From here on, if the camera detects any movement it will record what it sees. A choice of SMS, MMS and email alerts are available if movement is detected and users can access their online account and monitor their camera either from any web browser (be it on a PC or a web capable mobile phone) and view up to 100 stored alarm incidents.

“Be has always been about making the most of technology and our high speed network is perfect for Be home monitor,” said Oli White, Be’s Head of Marketing. “The Be home monitor service provides you, and only you, instant access to what matters most to you, your family, home and business.”
