Myfox brings its innovative security camera, home alarm, and French fashion sense to U.S. markets

Michael Brown | June 26, 2015
One of Europe's leading home-security providers is coming across the pond in a big way. The 10-year-old French manufacturer Myfox today announced the availability of its Myfox Home Security System and Myfox Security Camera at Amazon, Home Depot, and other online and brick-and-mortar retailers. From what I saw during a hands-on demo last week, I'm comfortable saying Myfox's offerings are innovative and very different from what's on the market today.

Ledterman maintains using the keyfobs for proximity detection is superior to using geofencing on a smartphone. Relying on GPS drains the phone's battery faster, and if the phone is dead when you get home, it won't disarm the system anyway. The keyfobs can also send the homeowner alerts when people come and go, and Myfox has joined the Works With Nest program so that its devices can be integrated with a Nest thermostat and other products in that initiative.

Well, this ended up being a very long story. If I haven't answered every question you might have about the Myfox Security Camera and Home Alarm Kit, drop me a line or post your question in the comments below and I'll try to answer it when I get my hands on a review unit.
