The 'Korner' Home Security System Costs Less Than $100

— April 30, 2014 — Tech
Korner is a home security system that costs under $100 and doesn't require you to pay monthly fees, but still goes a long way towards securing your home and guaranteeing your safety and security.

The Korner system consists of a curved motion-detecting tag that can be inserted into the upper corner of door and window frames, and a fob that is plugged into the Ethernet port of the user's Internet router.

If the tag detects movement, it sends a wireless message to the fob. The fob then responds by emitting a high-pitched audio alarm and by notifying the user via an accompanying iOS or Android app.

The user can then use that app to contact the police, forward the alert or alert someone else for help.
Trend Themes
1. Affordable Home Security - There is a growing trend of affordable home security systems that do not require monthly fees.
2. Internet of Things (iot) Home Security - Korner's use of IoT technology to connect the motion-detecting tag with the fob and smartphone app highlights a trend towards IoT-based home security systems.
3. User-friendly Home Security - Korner's simple and easy-to-use design sets a trend for user-friendly home security systems, making security more accessible to a wider range of consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Home Security Industry - The home security industry could disrupt conventional pricing models and shift towards more affordable, user-friendly, and IoT-based security systems.
2. Smart Home Industry - Korner's integration with smartphones and IoT technology points towards a trend for more comprehensive smart home security systems that can help users monitor and secure their homes more effectively.
3. Mobile Apps Industry - Korner's accompanying mobile app suggests that there is an opportunity for the mobile app industry to partner with home security systems to deliver better and more cost-effective security solutions.
