This year at CES, we had the opportunity to talk with the Ooma team about their new products that offer security and peace of mind for both businesses and consumers. In addition to home security and monitoring, the company had the Ooma Telo 4G on display.
The Ooma Telo 4G connects to the internet through a 4G LTE adapter and includes a backup battery, providing service, including 911 access – when you need it most, during internet and power outages. This is a great solution for cord cutters who have also opted not to use a landline at home.
The hardware for the Telo 4G has a one time cost of $129.99, which includes a base station, wireless adapter, and 10 hour battery backup. You’ll need a base subscription of $11.99/month for service through the nationwide Sprint 4G LTE network. The system delivers all the benefits of internet-based home phone service without worrying about power failures or losing 911 access in emergency situations.
“Ooma is dedicated to bringing peace of mind to families when it comes to staying connected with their homes and having a reliable way to reach first responders during emergencies,” said Thad White, vice president of residential product development at Ooma. “We aim for Ooma Telo 4G, along with the Ooma Keypad and Ooma Professional Monitoring for Ooma Smart Security, to give our customers more choices and more control in protecting their homes.”
Ooma’s new home security products and services include the Ooma Smart Security Keypad for $59.99 and Ooma Professional Monitoring for $14.99/month. The affordable do-it-yourself system offering a wide range of sensors for detecting motion, the opening of doors and windows, water leaks, and the opening of garage doors. Optional premium features include multi-user geofencing to automatically control the system as family members arrive and leave the home, and remote calling to local 911 operators through the Ooma Smart Security mobile app.
