Style, Decor & More: How To Keep Your Home And Delivery Packages Safe {Plus A Giveaway!}

How To Keep Your Home And Delivery Packages Safe {Plus A Giveaway!}

Disclosure: All trademarks identified herein are the property of their respective owners. Style, Decor & More was provided a HomeHawk camera for review purposes only. All opinions are 100% my own.

We've all heard the saying "Home is where the heart is." Home is a place where we feel safe and warm and are surrounded by those we love. It's family and friends coming together and making memories. And so, it shouldn't come as a surprise that we would want to do just about anything within reason to protect our homes.  

Ironically, as I sat down to write this post on my experience with Panasonic's HomeHawk Front Door Home Monitoring Camera and to stress the obvious safety reasons for having a home surveillance system, there was a local TV news story warning viewers that the number of home delivery packages being stolen was on the rise. They even have a name for the thieves, referring to them as "porch pirates."  Yes, I had heard of packages being stolen in the past, but I was a little surprised to hear they were stealing packages in the middle of summer. I assumed this sort of thing happened only around the holidays. Well, now I know better.

There is no doubt that homes with security cameras are a strong deterrent for criminal mischief and provide the homeowner peace of mind.

Monitoring your home from anywhere has never been easier.


If you are looking for a home monitoring system or not sure if you need one, keep reading to find out why I absolutely love Panasonic's HomeHawk and the amazing options it has to offer. I know you will be just as impressed with this unit as I am. 
Sleek and stylish unit with easy wireless installation.

See Everything in Color… Yes! Even at Night!
Panasonic’s exclusive color night vision technology allows you to monitor your front door with color night vision. It's the neatest thing and is the difference between seeing and knowing what or who arrived at your front door day or night. This technology eliminates a common home monitoring security camera problem, making it easier to identify someone at night. 

Color Night Vision

See More with a Wider Angle
Unlike many home monitoring cameras, the HomeHawk™ HD cameras offer HD video quality and are weather-resistant (IP65 rating, operating temp, -4F degrees to 122F). Plus, the front door cameras’ 172° angle of view fully covers front door top to bottom and porch left to right in full-color day or night. You can even connect up to 15 additional cameras for more home monitoring. That’s 16 cameras total! I am super impressed with the quality of the video recordings. 

 Impressive video quality and sound.

True Wireless Convenience 
Panasonic’s built-in, long-life rechargeable battery technology powers many of the world’s largest automotive and electronic devices – and now the HomeHawk™ cameras! This means the cameras are 100 percent fully wire-free, while their wireless connectivity means hassle-free placement anywhere inside or outside.  


HomeHawk is weatherproof and completely wire-free.
Two-Way Talk
Another great safety feature of the HomeHawk camera is the two-way talk option. It allows you to talk and listen from your phone anywhere at anytime, which also makes this monitoring camera great for indoor use. Imagine being able to check in on pets, elderly grandparents, and babysitters, when away from home.  
  
Package Monitoring
"This premises is being monitored" is a voice alert that is automatically sounded when a person approaches your front door. You do have the option to turn off this feature, but I personally love this option. I hope it doesn't startle my package carriers or the deer {winky face}. Also, if you have a bush or tree branches that sway in the wind, there is a feature you can adjust for motion sensitivity.

You can't put a price on safety or your peace of mind, but it's nice to know that Panasonic's HomeHawk camera makes it affordable, is easy to install, and easy to use. It's comforting to know you can keep an eye on your home when you are at work or away on vacation. 
  
Compatibility
The HomeHawk is compatible with Apple iPhones and Android phones. Since my husband has an Android phone and I have an Apple iPhone, I was able to test and confirm that both phones worked simultaneously for live viewing and motion activity alerts. 


This wireless system has no monthly fees, no contracts and no landline is needed. 


Prices vary depending on the package you choose. The KX-HN7001W model (shown here) retails for $249.95 + free shipping and includes one (1) front door HD camera and wireless access point base to ensure that your home is fully protected.

UPDATE! Hubby and I went out last night and my smartphone alerted me that somebody was at the door. Even though my kids are in their early 20's, as a mom I had to see who it was. The kids ordered a pizza and it was the pizza delivery person. I watched and heard the whole thing from my smartphone and could have used 2-way talk, if needed. I absolutely adore this camera! #HomeHawk #PeaceOfMind

It would be wonderful to win this, so thank you so much for the chance to win!

  105. I’m surprised at the no monthly fees. My husband and I just bought a house and this would be awesome to have. Our homeowners insurance asked if we had one....it would be nice to get that additional discount lol

    ReplyDelete
  106. This is an amazing security system and I would love to have it! I love being able to know who is at my home even if I'm not there, and the convenience of it even if I am at home. I have two small children, & sometimes we are upstairs when someone knocks. It is super annoying to have to rush downstairs to the door only to have to say, "No, thank you," to a sales pitch (despite our sign requesting no solicitors, ugh) or to have a package left that could have waited. The night vision makes me feel so much safer, too.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love the 2 way talk feature. With having a father in law that moved in with us from a stroke we sometimes have to run out without having someone to sit with him and we always feel extremely rushed in case something were to happen. This would free up a little time for us to do life things without as much worry.

    ReplyDelete

I recently had a couple of back-to-back falls and subsequent surgeries and I was wheelchair bound for a couple of years. I am up walking now with the use of a walker and am very slow moving. My son moved home to care for me, but if he isn't home, and someone comes to the door,by the time I get to the door, they have left. This system would be perfect for me. Thanks for having this amazing giveaway! I would love to win!

  137. I have seen many home security cameras on the market, but this quality looks fantastic! My favorite feature is the HD video capability. Living around canyon terrain, we often find wildlife (coyotes, rattlesnakes) right outside our front door. I like that I would be able to monitor for unwanted visitors as well as keep my family safe with the ease of mobile viewing.
