HAYWARD, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2016) - MAXIMUS®, a home security company providing easy-to-install smart home security solutions, today launches its latest preventative security feature: message playback on detection. This new feature helps homeowners protect their homes and loved ones, even when they're not able to get to their phone, by playing pre-recorded messages or a sound when motion is detected.
Users can access the new, free feature, which acts as both an automated greeting and deterrent, through the Kuna app, and also have the option to turn the feature on and off within the app. Users can select a pre-recorded message, such as "Can I help you?"; "Sorry, not interested"; "I'm busy right now," or a default 'chime' sound to automatically play when motion is detected. For a limited time, Halloween-themed options, including a "Happy Halloween" greeting or spooky ghost laugh, are also available to catch the attention of trick-or-treaters on your property, and more holiday greetings will be available soon.
"Today, connected consumers are looking for new ways to interact with their smart home products and technology that go above and beyond the product's basic functionality and expected connected and controlled experience," said Mark Honeycutt, CEO of MAXIMUS®. "We're excited about the new automatic motion detection and message playback feature because consumers not only have the power to intuitively deter unwanted visitors for the first time, but they also have a fun way to interact with visitors during the holiday season -- adding to the overall consumer smart home experience."
