How Outdoor Sensors & Cameras Keep Your Yard, Shed, & Garage Safe

You rely on your security system to protect your property and possessions at home and at work. Most Indy homeowners forget about securing the outside. You don’t want someone walking off with the motorcycle, the grill, or the lawn mower stored in the detached garage or laying around in the backyard. That’s where Honeywell’s security products come in.

Here’s 3 ways wireless outdoor protection keeps your home safe:

Wireless Outdoor Contact

5816OD wireless outdoor contact from Honeywell

The 5816OD wireless outdoor contact from Honeywell is a discrete piece of equipment you place on a door that keeps you aware of when someone opens and closes that door. This is helpful when you’re not expecting someone to be in that area. The wireless contact connects to your existing security system and can notify you when there is activity at the door.

It can be monitored by a central station 24/7 to summon authorities if there is suspicious activity. Its sturdy all-weather housing is ideal for gates, fences, barns, sheds, and detached garages. The wireless outdoor contact can withstand extreme Indiana temperatures from -40° F to 150° F.

Wireless Outdoor Motion Sensor

The Honeywell 5800PIR-OD wireless outdoor motion sensor

The Honeywell 5800PIR-OD wireless outdoor motion sensor alerts you when there’s movement around locations such as driveways, patios, and pool areas. You can be assured that the shed, the trailer, the barbecue, and the boat are protected.

It can detect motion at an adjustable range up to 40 feet. Honeywell technology reduces most false alarms due to pets and small animals. And, the sturdy, weather-resistant housing means this wireless motion sensor withstands Indiana winters as low as -4° F and hot summers - even if they get to 122° F.

A central station can monitor this sensor 24/7 - and summon authorities if necessary.

Outdoor Wireless Camera

Wireless cameras are one of my favorite security features. Their compact and portable design gives you lots of placement options. They are sturdy and weather-resistant in their housing to withstand the elements.

You can connect a wireless camera to your internet connection. The Total Connect app allows you to view the outdoor areas of your home via live, streaming video from that camera. You can even set up video alerts. Total Connect alerts you when motion is detected in the designated area. You can view up to six cameras at a time from your computer or smartphone.

To find out what else your Indianapolis home needs to be completely secure, take this quick assessment.
