Today we will be taking a look at a non-traditional security system that uses security cameras as the main device to protect your home, called Deep Sentinel.

Before we go over the features of the Deep Sentinel security solution, we would first like to give our readers some background information about the company. Deep Sentinel is a tech-based company that is located in California. They specialize is providing affordable security solutions for home owners across the United States.

Equipment

The camera

Deep Sentinel security solution is comprised of a security camera which is connected to a hub. The security camera has a small compact design and is made from weather proof materials so it can be used indoors or outdoors. Deep Sentinel’s security camera is a wireless camera that works by connecting to your home’s WIFI network. It is powered two ways: through a rechargeable battery and through an AC power source so you never have to worry about your Deep Sentinel security camera losing power.

Deep Sentinel’s security camera can capture crystal clear video clips, and it has a 130-degree field of view. Their security camera also includes night vision technology that allows you to capture and stream video even when there is no light. It also includes a 2-way audio feature that allows you to directly communicate with whomever is around your camera.

The hub

The next type of equipment that is included with Deep Sentinel’s security solution is their AI Hub. The AI Hub is what connects your camera to your internet connection. You can have up to 6 security cameras connected to one hub. Deep Sentinel’s AI Hub has a super-fast processor that allows it to analyze 50 images per second. The AI Hub has 4 GB dedicated RAM and 64 GB flash memory storage for your video clips. All the equipment that is listed above is a DIY (do it yourself) type of installation, and Deep Sentinel includes everything you need to get your security solution up and running in a matter of minutes.

Our take: The equipment that is offered by Deep Sentinel is everything you need to get some video surveillance protection for your home. We really like the design of Deep Sentinel’s security camera, and the fact that it can be used indoors or outdoors. We also like the processing power of the AI Hub. However, if you wanted door, window and motion sensors to go along with it, you’re out of luck. For a more traditional DIY home security system that comes with wireless cameras, check out Link Interactive.

Features

Deep Sentinel’s security camera has a built-in 104 decibel siren. It also includes advanced motion sensing technology, that will trigger your Deep Sentinel’s camera to start recording when motion has been detected. Deep Sentinel’s security camera has advanced image sensing technology as well that can distinguish between human and non-human images. If a human image is detected Deep Sentinel’s security camera will start to flash red and then start to record.

Our take: We really love all the advanced features that Deep Sentinel’s security camera has to offer. We really love their advanced image sensing technology due to the fact that is cuts down on false alerts. We also really love that Deep Sentinel’s security camera has a siren which can easily deter potential home invaders. However, as we have already stated, the lack of sensors with the system is a huge drawback. With Link Interactive, you can get the best of both worlds - wireless security cameras and a traditional wireless home security system controlled by a single app.

Monitoring

Professional monitoring

Deep Sentinel’s monitoring service is a bit different than other security companies that are out on the market. Deep Sentinel uses what they call Guards. Guards are security specialists that are located at a Deep Sentinel central monitoring station. They will watch over your security cameras, and if your security camera has detected a threat, a Guard will assess your camera’s video feed to see if there is an actual threat. They will respond to whomever is in front of your camera using its 2-way audio feature. If this does not deter the threat, they will contact you to let you know about the situation while also contacting your local law enforcement agency.

Self-monitoring

The Deep Sentinel app allows you to view and stream live and recorded video clips from your smart phone. The Deep Sentinel app is free to download and works for Apple and Android devices. You can also customize the features of your security cameras right from the app, and it will send you push notifications any time motion has been detected and your camera starts to record.

Pricing

Deep Sentinel gives you 64 GB of revolving cloud storage for your video clips at no cost. If you are looking to purchase a Deep Sentinel security solution, their pricing starts at $299.

There are a lot of great security companies that homeowners across the United States use to protect their homes. In today’s age security companies use a lot of mobile features for you to use with your system. Those mobile features are usually accessed through a smartphone app that the companies use through a third party or one they created themselves. The features for these types of apps can very along with the type of equipment used for these apps. Let’s compare Deep Sentinel with Link Interactive, our DIY home security service, powered by Alarm.com.

Their solution is comprised of a Deep Sentinel surveillance camera that works for both indoors and outdoors, and their AI Hub which is what connects their cameras to a home’s WIFI connection.

Link Interactive (or Alarm.com) however has several cameras that are offered to use their app services with. Alarm.com has a variety of indoor and outdoor cameras, doorbell cameras, and even cameras that are PoE (power over Ethernet) which give you to the ability to really customize your video surveillance security solution.

Alarm.com’s outdoor cameras are made from weather proof material and work by connecting to your home’s WIFI network wirelessly. The Alarm.com PoE outdoor camera works by connecting to your home’s internet through an Ethernet cable which also powers it at the same time. Alarm.com’s indoor cameras are also wireless, and work by connecting to your home’s WIFI network except for the PoE model. They are also powered through an AC power source.

Deep Sentinel however only offers one type of camera. It is wireless and works by connecting to your home’s WIFI network, and it is powered through an AC power source.

It has a motion sensor that will trigger your Deep Sentinel camera to start to record. It also includes AI detection technology that can distinguish between human and non-human images.

They include motion sensors that will trigger your camera to start to record. However, they do not include a 2-way audio feature or advance image sensing technology.

Alarm.com’s indoor cameras have a video resolution of 1080P with a wide field of view. They include night vision technology that allows you to capture images up to 15 feet at night. They also include motion sensors that will trigger your camera to start to record. However, just like Alarm.com’s outdoor cameras they do not include a 2-way audio feature or advanced image sensing technology.

The last type of video surveillance cameras that are offered by Alarm.com are their doorbell cameras. Their doorbell cameras can record video in 720P with a 180-degree viewing angle.

App

Deep Sentinel

With Deep Sentinel’s app you can control the features of your Deep Sentinel camera. The app works for Apple and Android devices, and it will send you push notifications when your Deep Sentinel camera starts to record. You can also stream and view recorded video clips right from the app.

Link Interactive (Alarm.com)

The Alarm.com app also works for Android and Apple Devices. It has the same features as the Deep Sentinel app plus much more. The Alarm.com app allows you to also incorporate home automation and security equipment, and you can control them all from the Alarm.com app. You can also use Alarm.com’s Geo-Fencing technology, which will set an invisible perimeter around your home that when someone crosses this perimeter it will cause your devices to react (such as a video camera starting to record when this fence is crossed).

Our take: When comparing Deep Sentinel to Alarm.com we personally like what Alarm.com has to offer better. Deep Sentinel is very limited when it comes to what equipment can be used with their security solution which is basically just a surveillance camera and a hub. Alarm.com however has a ton of security, home automation, and video surveillance equipment that you can use with their services. The features for the Sentinel app are also more limited than what is offered through Alarm.com. We also prefer Alarm.com because they have been in the security business for a long time now, and many major security companies use their app to power their self-monitoring services. Link Interactive is the leader in Alarm.com home security solutions.

Deep Sentinel and Alarm.com may offer different security solutions, but both are dedicated to providing home and business owners with high quality services and products. Deep Sentinel has a unique security solution that uses security cameras as their main component. Alarm.com has a variety of equipment and services they provide which gives you a lot of customization options.
