I’ll admit, we haven’t added security cameras to our home because the idea of placement and wiring them is something we’ve been avoiding. The Panasonic HomeHawk changed all that. We were recently sent the 100% wire-free Panasonic HomeHawk and monitoring our house whether we’re at home or away has been a breeze.
Once it arrived, we mounted the Panasonic HomeHawk in our front porch area and began monitoring the area in minutes. I was thrilled how simple it was, which I think is especially important for people who want home monitoring systems but are not tech-savvy. I feel confident that most people would be able to install the HomeHawk with little to no assistance.
Features of the Panasonic HomeHawk
One of the things we really liked about the HomeHawk is it has color recording, making it easier to identify someone at night. No hard to see videos for this camera. If you prefer monochrome, it’s still an option.The video is in high-definition and so clear!
The weather resistant camera of the HomeHawk is perfect for outdoor and indoor use – and I know once those Seattle rains begin, I won’t have to worry about moisture.
One of the awesome things about the wide-angle view (up to 172 degrees) is that you can customize your detection area. This is pretty brilliant – it allows us to stop false detections and really customize our viewing area. The HomeHawk app makes it really easy to set up.
The built-in, long-life rechargeable battery makes the Panasonic HomeHawk wire-free! This is a plus. The app warns you about battery consumption, which is a great feature. Living in an older Seattle home, wiring in cameras is NOT an option without a whole lot of hassle, so this is probably our favorite feature of the HomeHawk.
One of the great features of the HomeHawk is that has an exclusive package monitoring mode notifying people near the front entrance that the premise is being monitored with motion AND voice activation. You can easily see when a package arrives (or if one is removed!)
One of the very first things we did after the easy HomeHawk installation was we synced it to our Amazon Echo Show. The HomeHawk is both Amazon Alexa and Google Home compatible. Love that all I have to say is “Alexa, show me the front door, and my porch shows up on my Echo Show!
You can also sync up to 15 additional HomeHawk cameras for more home monitoring – both indoors and out! Keep an eye on the kids when they come home from school, your home office, or even the pet sitter. And remember, since the HomeHawk is 100% wire free, installation is effortless.
