We recently had a fire at one of our properties, that was a big hit. We're looking comprehensively at our risk management, and more specifically about job site security. At our house, we've had pretty good luck with the Blink Cameras, which is an Amazon product.
We also found a device that installs over an existing deadbolt, and provides automated access once someone gets the app.
We also have a motion detector that we think will work.
BUT! Most of this stuff relies on a good internet connection - it seems that the technology has come a long way, and the options are improving.
My main question is if anyone has any specific input on this broadly, but then more specifically, getting internet set up on a job site may be a challenge - I'm looking into different Mobile Hotspot type options. I don't know how onerous it'll be from a data perspective to have a bunch of video footage uploaded to the cloud, over a mobile network.
At first glance, it looks like mobile hotspots are in the $100-150 range but it's unclear to me how reliable they area, and also interoperability issues (ie: we are using a Google Fi cell network for our cell phones currently but like the Amazon suite of smart devices, cameras, etc)
Input highly appreciated. We need to get this sorted and have a robust solution to step up job site security.
Simplisafe. I don't need internet
