Y-CAM Protect Alarm System: Affordable Home Intrusion Detection System

Friday, February 10, 2017

If you're looking for an affordable, easy and fast way to secure and monitor the inside of your home, consider a solution such as Y-Cam Protect Alarm System!
Y-Cam Protect Alarm System integrates SIM card backup, Internet backup and 8 hour battery backup, which means even if you get a power cut or Internet loss the Y-cam alarm system will remain fully operational.
How does it work? Y-Cam Protect Alarm System consists of a hub (the main system) and sensors that are essentially the eyes and ears of the hub system. Monitoring is done by the user so no monthly fees!
Anything the sensors pick up, they will trigger the alarm alerting you via instant alerts to your smartphone.
There are no wires to run as there are no drilling holes required. You can set up this alarm system very easily and quickly without professional expertise, which is nice.
You can control the unit via your smartphone and/or remote. Setting the Y-Cam alarm system is super easy via the Y-cam app

The Y-cam app gives you the same functionality you get with the Protect Remote but you can do much more with the Y-cam app such as set up alerts, upgrade the firmware of the hub system, enable/disable the Tamper switch, check the signal strength and check battery level of sensors.

What's in the box? Here is what you get with the Y-cam Protect Alarm System:

Hub System
The hub system registers the inputs received from the sensors and features an LED indicator light, an antenna port, an Ethernet port and a power DC port. On the bottom of the unit, you get rubber feet and holes for hanging up the unit.
Protect Remote
the remote features a panic button
The Protect Remote controls the Y-cam hub alarm system without using the Y-cam app so it allows you to arm/disarm the alarm the system at close range (around 150 meters). The remote is powered by a single CR2450 coin cell battery. The remote also features a Home button which when pressed disables the motion sensor when you are home (the access sensors remained armed).

Protect Motion Sensor
The Protect Motion Sensor detects motion within a 100-degree field of view. You can have as many of these protect motion sensors with the Y-cam Protect Alarm system and they are very easy to set up. Simply stick the included 3M sticky tape on the back of the sensor and stick it anywhere you like. On the back of the Protect Motion Sensor, you'll also see a switch. It is a Tamper Switch designed to alert you should anyone tries to remove the sensor.
Protect Access Sensor
The Protect Access Sensor is designed to be fitted on doors and windows and consists of two parts connected together magnetically. The minute the two parts are detached it will trigger the alarm. The Protect Access Sensor also has a Tamper Switch, just like the Protect Motion Sensor.
the alarm sounds loud enough to spook a would-be thief
The larger part of the Protect Access Sensor is powered by a single CR123A coin cell battery and measures 69,5mm long. The smaller part is non-battery powered and measures 34.75mm long. The Protect Access Sensor will send a signal to the main system hub when battery is running low.
Y-cam Protect Alarm System comes with a very detailed, easy to read instruction's manual, showing exactly how the unit is set up, including features like Y-cam Skill which enable Amazon Alexa voice control of your Protect Alarm.
