Deep Sentinel Home Security review: More than just cameras that document crime, this system actively deters it

The Deep Sentinel Home Security system takes a very different approach to home security. The typical home security camera only documents crime. An intruder triggers the camera when they breach your perimeter, and the camera records what’s happening.The camera might set off a local siren, send you a notification, or even let you yell at the perp—provided you didn’t ingore the notification and the crook is still in the camera’s field of view—but all too often, the incident is over before you’re aware of what’s going on.

Home security systems with professional monitoring, meanwhile, typically don’t react until a thief has already gained access to your home, tripping a door, window, or motion sensor inside. To avoid producing false alarms that can needlessly tie up police resources, the professionals monitoring these systems will attempt to contact you first, and then a second or third contact on your list, to ask if you know what’s going on at your home. They’ll call the police eventually, but a lot of bad things can happen in the interim.

The key feature that sets Deep Sentinel apart from other home security systems is that notifications of suspicious activity are sent to human beings whose entire jobs are to monitor and, if appropriate, respond to them. They’ll use two-way audio to order a potential thief to leave the area, and they will call a police dispatcher if needed.

How Deep Sentinel works

The Deep Sentinel starter pack consists of three wireless, battery-powered cameras that create a perimeter around your home. A team of remote Deep Sentinel guards has access to each camera’s live feed. As the cameras’ sensors detect movement from people, animals, cars, and other things on and around your property, AI algorithms process the data to determine what activity is suspicious and what isn’t.

If something is deemed suspicious, the camera turns on its ring of strobing red lights, starts recording video (which is saved to a local hub wired to your network), and pushes a live feed to a Deep Sentinel Surveillance Agent. This person monitors the activity and decides whether or not to take action. Someone delivering a package might not warrant a response, but someone taking a package definitely would. Should the agent decide to intervene, they can either activate the camera’s built-in 104-decibel siren to ward off the intruder or ask them what they’re up to using the camera’s two-way speaker.

The Deep Sentinel system comes with three smart Full HD cameras with motion detection and two-way communication capabilities.

Often either of those options will be enough to curtail any potential wrongdoing, but if the intrusion escalates into an actual crime, the agent can notify local police, and most crucially according to Deep Sentinel founder and CEO David Selinger, give them an accurate description of the person and the particulars of the suspected crime.

Setup and performance

The Deep Sentinel kit comes with three security cameras that have a 130-degree field of view, 1080p resolution, night vision, and two-way audio. The kit also includes a hub and its power cable, three mounting brackets, and a lawn sign and window stickers that let folks know Deep Sentinel has been deployed on the premesis.

The first step is to download the Deep Sentinel app to your phone, as it will guide you through much of the setup process. Then connect the hub to your router with an ethernet cable and power it on. The hub needs to be centrally located indoors, so it can reach all three of the wireless cameras. The manufacturer suggests placing it six to eight feet off the ground (or on a second story, if your home has one). A green LED on the front of the hub blinks while connecting and glows solid when it’s finished.
