Deep Sentinel, a security startup backed by Amazon co-founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, has released their first security system. Along with wireless cameras with artificial intelligence capabilities, Deep Sentinel emphasizes its 24/7 professional monitoring. At $399, the system includes three cameras and a hub, plus batteries, mounting equipment, a yard sign, and sticker decals. The Deep Sentinel package requires professional monitoring with a monthly cost of $49.99.
The Deep Sentinel Smart Home Surveillance System features a virtual perimeter around the home to “stop crimes before they happen,” according to Bari Abdul, the company’s Chief Marketing Officer. If the security cameras detect people around the home’s perimeter, they will alert the LiveSentinel team within 30 seconds.
“Our LiveSentinel surveillance team has eyes on intruders from the second they step on your front yard, making Deep Sentinel the only home security solution that includes active security guards whose job it is to shout criminals off your property,”
said David Selinger, Deep Sentinel’s CEO and co-founder. At the same time that the camera detects a person, its red light will come on, which causes the person to “automatically leave,” said Abdul. The camera’s siren can also go off at 104 dB, about as loud as a sport event or table saw. From there, the professional monitoring team can contact the police on the home owner’s behalf. Currently, Deep Sentinel systems are available on the Deep Sentinel website, although the company is hoping to sell through Amazon in the near future.
Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and CEO, is Deep Sentinel’s lead investor through his personal investment arm, Seed Explore Holdings. Amazon itself owns both Ring Alarm, a home security company, and Blink, a manufacturer of home security cameras. On top of that, Amazon recently patented facial recognition for suspicious persons, another investment in smart home security.
