The Mindful Guardian
Maybe it’s a territory thing, but Dad’s tend to be very focused on keeping their homes as safe and secure as possible. When talking about her husband Gabe, Hive customer Anna Liesemeyer agrees:
“Gabe by nature is more cautious about keeping the home secure. I never thought much about home security before owning a home, but now since it is something we worked so hard for, and value so much, we are grateful for a simple and effective way to be notified if there are any intruders.”
As owners of a Hive Close to Home Pack, the Liesemeyer’s use Hive products to give them peace of mind and a sense of security around the home. They love using Hive Sensors and a Hive View camera to keep tabs on what’s going on at home. “We synced our Hive View camera with the Hive app so that whenever we are out of the home we are able to easily check in from our mobile devices,” says Anna. “If you want to move your camera to a different room, you can easily do so.
