How many of you have moved into a new home in the past year? There are a few things you have to get used to in the first month of going from an apartment to a house. You will have to fix everything or pay to have something fixed as you no longer have a landlord to cry and complain to (which sucks). You will also have to mow the lawn on a regular basis which probably also means you will need to buy a mower and everything else essential to basic lawn care. You will have to deal with awesome neighbors and then pesky neighbors that make comments about your incessant partying and how leaving that blow up doll in their backyard was flat out inappropriate. What is one of the worst things about moving into a house? Getting bombarded by every mailer known to mankind about signing up for some overpriced home security system. If you have the “luck” of living withing one of their sales territories, you will also get hit up every week by a guy or girl ringing your doorbell to convince you of signing up. The companies and their sales reps are usually a step above or below car dealerships and car salesmen.
A company called Korner has realized a couple of these shortcomings and created a solution that works for more of the middle class common folk. The people that don’t want to have to pay crazy monthly payments and be threatened with huge fines after their dog sets off their alarm for the third time. Korner is very simple and operates by plugging in their hub to your router. You then have “tags” that you can place doors and windows that will sense when one of them open. Once that alert has been triggered, you will be prompted to dismiss the alarm, call the police, or forward the alert onto a neighbor or family member asking them to check out your house. All of this is done through wifi which means you will have ZERO monthly payments and retain a peace of mind. Anything that can possibly disrupt an industry we see as pretty corrupt/overpriced, we are wholeheartedly behind. Click here for image source and where to buy Korner.
