Sandbox Industries has this week unveiled their new personal Scout wireless security system, which they created after playing with open source hardware.
The new scout security system can easily be installed and removed if and when needed, making it perfect for customisable installations. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
The Scout security system is free over Wi-Fi and can be programmed to send alerts or even dial your local Police department via a connected phone if required. For $10 a month users are able to upgrade to a 3G version. Lindsay Cohen, a VP at Sandbox explains a little more about the new innovative security system :
“We chose home security because existing systems are extremely expensive, use outdated equipment and are inflexible for consumers,”-“You can’t move systems from house to house, existing companies lock you into 3 year contracts and setup often involves landlines and technicians. Overall, home security is just a giant headache.”
The Scout security system is gearing up to start shipping in August 2013 and will be priced starting at around $120.
