Win a Panasonic Smart Home Monitoring Kit

Protect what matters most with a Panasonic Smart Home Monitoring Kit (valued at $499.99). Monitor and control your home or business yourself from your Smartphone or Tablet through the Panasonic Home Monitoring App. Sensors and cameras notify your smart device when they detect movement and noise, and the siren will deter intruders. The cameras allow you to watch live images via your smart device with 2-way communication and you can record footage at any point (so you can record if an intruder is in your home). Link devices together and turn appliances on and off when it suits. You can link the smart plug with the motion sensor to turn a lamp on, so if you get up at night a light will come on.
