Deep Sentinel uses a unique method to protect homes. Rather than monitoring sensors, Deep Sentinel’s monitoring center monitors security camera footage. That reasonably raises questions about privacy.
Deep Sentinel understands the concerns. For starters, the monitoring center can only see footage from cameras when there’s a legitimate threat. When the cameras aren’t sensing any danger, the monitoring center cannot see the livestream. Additionally, Deep Sentinel cameras must only be placed outdoors; never indoors. On top of that, it uses encryption and other necessary measures for securing recorded and streamed video.
See the result of our research and tests below to find out how private and secure Deep Sentinel really is.
