Home Security Devices
AEGIS is an expert company in ensuring home security having worked with apartment complexes, private residences and estates. Home security devices make a great gift for anyone on your list because they are easy to install and use immediately. Our favorite product line is Ring — check out how their products work to keep your home safe.
- Ring Floodlight Camera Motion-Activated HD Security Cam Two-Way Talk and Siren Alarm: Perfect to put over a garage, on the side of home, on a balcony or at a gate, the floodlight camera is motion activated and allows you to tell people they are on private property (and to get off of it!). The live video and audio streaming allows you to be alerted to potential criminals as well as notify the authorities if need be. If you thought having a motion sensor floodlight worked well before, you’ll be amazed by the enhanced security this product brings!
- Ring Video Doorbell 2: You’ve seen it on the news and maybe even done a bit of research into similar doorbells. What you may not know is that our own security experts at AEGIS rely on this system for their own protection. It’s that good! See who’s at the door, talk to people through the system, and be connected from anywhere in the world to your house.
- Ring Stick Up Cam, Outdoor security camera with 2-way audio: Already have a doorbell or a preferred ring? You can use a Ring Cam to do all the things the doorbell system does without a new installation. This product gives you all the perks with less hassle, keeping you and your home safe.
Personal Safety Devices
Personal safety is essential for everyone, period. Having just a few basics as stocking stuffers can start a positive conversation about being alert and staying safe.
- PeakPlus LED Tactical Flashlight: This super bright, high lumen power, water resistant flashlight is top notch for security, home use, outdoor events and emergencies. Get the 2-pack to give one and keep one! Having a flashlight is essential for everyone from those who have a car to others who enjoys evening runs.
- SABRE Red Pepper Gel – Police Strength: Pepper gel doesn’t atomize like your traditional pepper spray, eliminating wind blowback and only affecting what it actually contacts. This particular model has an 18-foot range. Having such a tool is ideal for people who work late or walk to and from places frequently and alone. It also comes with a link to a free training video so your friend or family member knows how to use it. (Security officers are required to have a permit that authorizes them to use pepper spray or other chemical agents on the job. For more information, please visit the BSIS website.)
- MyDeal VisiTRUTH UV Ultraviolet 9 LED Blacklight Pocket Flashlight: Ideal for that friend or relative who handles cash or verifies IDs!
