If you have WiFi and a smartphone, you can use Kangaroo. We created Kangaroo to ensure that everyone has access to home security. We believe everyone should have access to home security. Every product we build starts with three questions: is it simple, can it be produced at a price that everyone can afford, and is it secure. It extends to ensuring your data is secure and your privacy is protected. We take several extra steps to ensure your total security. Some you’ll see, others you won’t.
Where should I place my Indoor + Outdoor Camera? Your device can be placed anywhere inside or outside your home that you want an extra set of eyes. The device is wired, so you’ll need to make sure wherever you place it, there’s a power outlet within reach. Some ideas include mounted near windows or doors inside or outside your home, pointed at your valuables or car, or in a kid’s room. However, there are endless places for you to either mount or place your Indoor + Outdoor Camera.
From the minute you get started with us, you’ll notice that we use your mobile phone – not an email address and password – to ensure that you are you. Our Privacy Camera has an added layer of security that you can see to prevent anyone from seeing or listening in, but behind the scenes we bind the device to a specific household so that outsiders can’t interfere without you knowing. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Given that many of our products protect against loss and are professionally-monitored, you may be eligible for the maximum insurance premium discount allowable. This can mean 5-15% off your policy, depending on whether you rent or own. Check with your insurance carrier to get your total savings.
What is the Kangaroo Siren + Keypad? With it, you can arm and disarm your Kangaroo security system. It will provide an audible, interior ring for the doorbell. If one of your Kangaroo sensors is triggered, the device’s siren will sound. What is the Complete Protect Plan? Complete Protect adds 24/7 Professional Monitoring, enables Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility, and increases your Doorbell Camera cloud storage. Plus – if you do have a security incident, Complete Protect ensures you’re covered with package theft reimbursement!
