What if your security system could actually prevent a break-in before it happened? Meet the Myfox smart home security solution.

What if your security system could actually prevent a break-in before it happened? Meet the Myfox smart home security solution, which is changing the game in home security.  At the Coldwell Banker Smart Home Showcase, Social Media & Content Specialist for Coldwell Banker, Alexandra Filiaci, sat down with Scott Ledterman, COO & SVP Sales & Marketing of Myfox Inc. to learn what makes the MyFox home security system seamless, intuitive and just plain smart.

The suite of Myfox smart security products include the IntelliTAG, keyfobs, and a security camera.


While traditional security alerts you when a door is broken, the Myfox smart alarm goes a step beyond. The MyFox IntelliTAG window and door sensors can tell the difference between normal bumps like a soccer ball and potential threats like a crowbar. This early detection then signals the alarm system to have an alarm go off and send the burglar away. In 82% of the time, the burglar left the home before completing the break-in. You’ll also be alerted immediately through instant SMS, email and push notifications.

Key Fobs

Because different people have different security needs, the Myfox keyfobs allow the system to be flexible enough to fit every member of your household. The key fobs recognize individual family members and automatically disarm the alarm so you don’t have to enter a code every time. You can also set different settings, so for instance when your kids come home, the keyfob automatically detects that its your daughter and not your husband. This could trigger the camera to automatically turn on so you can keep an eye on her at home, but when the system recognizes a parent’s key fob entering the home, the camera could be set to turn off.

Security Camera

Some are uneasy about having a camera in their home, but Myfox has thought of that, too! A unique feature of the Myfox security camera is the privacy shutter which is a physical motorized shutter that opens and closes to block the camera lens. Allowing you to physically see that the camera is closed, this feature fully ensures that no picture can be taken. This not only protects your home, but your privacy, too.

Installation & Monitoring

This wireless security system is easily installed in 10-15 minutes. At this year’s CES, MyFox announced the addition of 24/7 professional monitoring with a no contract, pay-as-you-go model for $9.99 per month.  Better yet, this cost may be covered by homeowners insurance.

The MyFox alarm systems at $279 and can be found at retailers like Best Buy and Amazon. To learn more about what might be one of the smartest home security solutions out there, visit
