Say Goodbye to the Quadruple Play Pack
It’s just a matter of time before Big Telco comes calling with their Quadruple Play pack. It’s time to put a stop to the $50-a-month madness. You don’t need the first phone line they sold you and these are the same guys that are lucky to get your bill right once every 3 months. Will they respond to an alarm? Sure – next Thursday between 7 am and 9 pm. With Scout, you can cut through the noise. Scout’s contracts are month-to-month and cheaper monthly. We don’t withhold our app, or nickel-and-dime you with service fees.
The 80’s Called, They Want Their Phone Line Back
Your security shouldn’t be dependent on a decades-old technology that can be cut with a pair of scissors. Scout’s Takeover has a built-in backup battery and 3G cellular chip, so you never have to worry about the power going down, or your phone line being cut. We keep you connected 24/7 over cellular networks and our backup battery will keep your system live for up to 24 hours.
With Scout's takeover system, all you need to do is plug our sleek device into your fossil of a system. Simply unplug your current system from your phone line and plug it into Scout. It works with over 90% of the systems on the market today, thanks to a protocol called Contact ID. The Takeover intercepts the signals and sends them to you, or the monitoring center if you’d like, over cellular networks.
Smart Software, Simple Pricing
Scout lets you monitor your system remotely, create custom responses to an alarm and manage permissions on the fly. We do this all for one flat fee, because $50 a month for an app is crazy. It's all the benefits of Scout, without having to change out any equipment.
Security Only Works if it Works for You
With the vast majority of alarms today being false alarms, it’s no wonder that people don’t arm their systems. Multi-thousand dollar installations turn into $50-a-month door chimes when things go wrong. Fixing the problem is even worse. You have to wait weeks for an appointment with an installer. Scout is returning control back to you with the Takeover. We simplify security and readily share information about our devices. No installers, no gatekeepers, nothing between you and your family’s security.
Put Traditional Security on Notice; Scout’s Taking Over
If you've got an inactive system in your house, the Takeover is a no-brainer. If you're under contract with Caveman or the cable guys, it's time to send that break-up letter. Put them on notice: Scout's taking over.
