SCW Shield Smart Monitoring

A Smart Home Deserves Smart Monitoring.

Shield Smart Monitoring Sends the Right Help at The Right TIme.

Our Professional Monitoring Plans use SCW Shield sensor data so that the right authority gets notified quickly:

Police Department:

Motion or Intrusion Sensors
Panic Button on Key Fob or Pin Pad


Safecare Button

Shield is Different

Here's one example of our attention to detail and emphasis on security: the window sensor.

Most alarms have one sensor that is used for doors and windows. This is bad design. Door sensors have a delay, for you to enter your code, before they alert the monitoring station. We believe that there's nothing secure about giving someone a 30 second head start when they crawl through your window.

Unlike our competitors, our door and window sensors aren't the same. We have specific window sensors, that alert the second the window is cracked.

Our door and window sensors are 50% smaller than most of the industry.

The Shield Hub is hidden away in your closet near your router. It uses custom encrypted wireless communication to talk to the sensors.
