SmartThings Prevents a Burglary
We love hearing real stories from customers about how they’re using SmartThings to monitor, control, and secure their homes. Today, we’re sharing a story from Allison who writes in to tell the story of how SmartThings and her D-Link camera helped deter an intruder.

“This morning, SmartThings and my D-Link security cameras worked as intended. A suspicious guy approached my front door at 2 am, holding what appeared to be a crowbar. As soon as my motion sensor turned on my front porch light, he looked right at my security camera and took off.
This is exactly what I wanted to achieve. I have a couple more layers of security if he had continued, but I use SmartThings primarily as a deterrent to automate my lights and send motion alerts to my phone at night. I am very glad the system worked and even more tempted to buy a V2 Hub because my internet went down the two previous nights.”– Allison
