New application offers remote security option
18 August 2009 — 2:00 PM
Consumers looking to recycle mobile phones in favour of a new BlackBerry or iPhone may be interested in a new security application.
Announced this week by Platinum Protection, the software can be downloaded to the devices and will allow users to connect to their home CCTV technology, as well as arm and disarm alarm systems remotely.
BlackBerry and iPhone owners can also control the cameras they have set up in their property, allowing them to pan and tilt around the area and review footage that has been stored.
Chance Allred, partner at Platinum Protection, said the idea behind the product is to provide peace of mind.
"Using this advanced technology, customers can keep track of homes, vacation properties and even view children and pets in real time," he added.
Jeremy Pixton, another partner at the firm, said the service could also help those who have elderly family members.
Vodafone recently added the BlackBerry Curve 8520 to its line up of handsets.
