As am mom, I would do anything to make sure my kids are safe. As a homeowner, I would do a lot as well to save money on my bills. With PEQ, I can protect my family and help manage my bills all at the same time! The most important thing that you need to know about the PEQ is that it can help you sleep better knowing that you can see everything that is going on in your home from your smartphone. Whether you are in your home or not!
I have had traditional security systems where if a door or window are opened, the alarm sounds and maybe I get a call on my phone that it has gone off. Then I have to wait for the local police to arrive to see if it was a false alarm or if there is something I need to worry about happening. I have been home many times when this alarm has gone off and it is loud, scary and you feel this internal panic while you worry about what to do.
With PEQ and their line of motion sensors, cameras, window alarms and more, I can pick up my smartphone, see where the issue is – the window, hallway, front or back door – and instantly know more about what is going on in my home. If I have the cameras in place, I can even get a video or screen shot of the activity.
My absolute favorite part of the PEQ system is the super easy to use and install camera. I can literally put it anywhere, adjust it how I want and see an instant photo of what is going on in that area in my home – or outside of my home – on my phone with the touch of a button. This would have really been amazing when my girls were babies. It would have been the perfect baby monitor. The picture is clear and I really like it. So much that I am purchasing a few additional cameras to add to my already provided items for other areas in my home.
Another great benefit to the camera is to double as a nanny cam. Get that peace of mind knowing that you can see into your home when you are not there. Just because I trust my babysitter immensely but that does not mean that I would not love to ‘PEQ’ in and see she and my kids to make sure all is OK.
Pairing the motion sensor, camera, lamp device, window sensor and water sensor were so easy. Literally, from the computer or my phone, which I used to pair almost everything, I just followed the easy videos, step by step guidance and had everything installed in a matter of minutes. If I ran into trouble at all, the solution was on mypeq.com/support.
I have had this entire unit in the house for a little while now and I love that I can set my smartphone to Away and watch from my phone anything that might happen in my house. I can spy on my dogs, children or see if someone who is not supposed to be in the house has tripped my motion sensors. I can also check the health of my pipes with the water sensor. It can tell me if I have a leak or even a toilet overflow in my house. We all know that is important with kids in the home!
But the absolute BEST part of the system as I see it to date is that it only costs $9.99 a month to have the hub and all of the devices you want connected to it per month. There is no limit to the number of PEQ devices you attach and the monitoring on your computer or smartphone is included! Less than $10 a month to control my lights, thermostat, see motion in the house, watch the windows and more? I think I can handle that. It is 1/4 of the security system locked in contract that I had. And with the install fees and the lock in of the rate, I got no cameras or sensors other than the doors. To add windows and more devices was not only more out of pocket, but also inflated my monthly rate.
The cost of the devices on the PEQ system are quite comparable to the security company. But there is no monthly contract and the monthly fee is ridiculously lower.

Little ‘ole me installed all of the devices on my own with no help. It was incredibly easy and even fun! The hardest part was figuring out where to put everything. But once it was installed and I could pick up my phone and see what was happening in my house, the PHEW factor was the benefit I was most excited about.
