iZON Saves the Day: Catches Thief in the Act

14 Oct 2011

App-based remote room monitor uses motion detection to automatically record video of theft, resulting in an arrest

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla., Oct. 14, 2011 — Stem Innovation, LLC recently learned from a customer that the iZON Remote Room Monitor helped to capture video of a thief burglarizing her home. The theft triggered iZON’s motion detection, capturing video to a private YouTube account, and ultimately led to the arrest of the perpetrator.

Dru Ackerman, whose amazing story was first reported on CBS-12 in Boynton Beach, FL, was concerned that someone was entering her residence while she was not home. Having learned about iZON’s motion detection capabilities from her son, she purchased and quickly set up iZON to monitor her front door. The very next day, iZON automatically captured video of a neighbor entering her home and stealing prescription medication.

“The police… could not believe that we had video of the person doing the crime”, said Ackerman’s son. “The officer was so impressed with the video, he wanted to purchase [iZON] for his home!”
