Nanny-Cam: An Affordable Way To Keep An Eye On Your Children

Have you seen the movie “Meet the Parents”?  Do you remember the scene where Jack (played by Robert DeNiro)  is talking to Greg (played by Ben Stiller) about hidden surveillance cameras and Jack shows Greg the teddy bear with a camera built into it? At the time, that scene may have seemed over the top.  Now, several years later, a Nanny-Cam is a very common, convenient and affordable way to give you peace of mind that your children are safe and secure when you’re at work, on a business trip, or enjoying a date night out. This is just one application of how SecureMyStuff can make a real difference in the lives of our customers.  The low cost of the camera and a simple, affordable monthly plan is about as easy as adding cable TV services to your home! Even better, you can view the Nanny-Cam recorded data right from your smartphone or laptop! To see some of our cameras in action, check out our live demos! For more information, call us at 1-888-536-8661.

Property Managers Can Help Tenants Feel Safe and Secure with SecureMyStuff!

Property managers face a difficult task of providing security for the buildings they manage due to the sometimes high cost of traditional video security systems.  It can be hard for property managers to present the value of a traditional system to their tenants or owners if they are unable to absorb the cost.  This is exactly why SecureMyStuff is a perfect option for property managers in these instances. Rather than make a large upfront investment on equipment and network infrastructure, property managers have the option of installing cameras at a low initial cost and paying a low monthly fee for hosted video services.  SecureMyStuff hosts network service with monthly fees dependent on the amount of time a facility wants to store the captured video.  This minimizes costs to the property owner and tenants, and ensures the safety and security of the property. It's a great solution...for everyone! To see how hosted IP video technologies work, view our demos and service plans today!

How SecureMyStuff Uses Cloud Computing To Save Your Business Time, Money, and Energy

Cloud computing is basically defined as servers that are hosted in data centers instead of in your own building.  For detailed information on Cloud Computing, check out Wikipedia here. Ok, so you may be wondering, "What does cloud computing have to do with video surveillance?" Keep reading and we'll tell you! Traditionally, video surveillance systems require LOTS of hardware installed at your building and technical people to keep the systems up and running.  It also means that a business owner has to have good power, internet connectivity and backup solutions in place to guarantee that their video system is working.  All of this boils down to a lot of time and  expense. No business owner wants that. SecureMyStuffTM (SMS) hosts their video surveillance solution with a  carrier class data facility located in downtown Kansas City.  This allows SMS to provide excellent up time for our hosted solution and unlimited capacity for growth as we continue to add new clients. SecureMyStuffTM has chosen to go with a “cloud” based model for several reasons, including.
  • Significant savings in hardware infrastructure.
  • Significant savings in technical resources required to maintain the system.
  • Green solution based on the shared infrastructure at the hosting company = better for the environment.
  • Easy to install. Just order a camera and plug it in or connect it to your wireless network.
  • Easy to modify after the installation. If the business owner needs another camera, all they have to do is order it and plug it in.

SecureMyStuff/Kenton Brothers Co-Sponsor “Spay-ghetti and No Balls” at Spay and Neuter Kansas City

NBC Action News 41 Reporter Keith King presided over the event as Master of Ceremonies (see the tv report of the event here), and a touching speech was presented by key-note speaker Charles Gusewelle of the Kansas City Star. In addition to the dinner and social mixer, there were live and silent auctions held during the evening’s festivities. Spay and Neuter Kansas City promotes affordable spay and neuter services to help decrease pet over-population in the Kansas City area.  Kenton Brothers is a strong supporter of the excellent work SNKC does to help protect the staff, dogs and cats at SNKC.

Kenton Brothers’ New Online Division Introduces WatchMyStuff(tm) Video Surveillance Technology

News Release Kenton Brothers Inc. 1718 Baltimore Ave., Kansas City, MO 64108 816-842-3700 or 888-536-8661, Release Date: Feb. 24, 2011 Contact: Susan Pepperdine, 913-262-7414, cell 913-205-5304, or Kenton Brothers' New Online Division Introduces WatchMyStuffTM Video Surveillance Technology Kansas City, MO. ... WatchMyStuffTM, a revolutionary new Internet technology that allows small businesses to cost-effectively install high-security video surveillance, is being introduced by SecureMyStuffTM, the newly established online division of Kenton Brothers Inc. WatchMyStuffTM is an innovative, proprietary video technology that for the first time allows business owners to monitor live or recorded video from anywhere in world simply by connecting to the Internet via computer or mobile device. WatchMyStuffTM is designed to meet the needs of small businesses that require an affordable, easy-to-use security system. For a low monthly fee, the hosted video surveillance system can be installed at multiple small locations to increase security, prevent inventory loss, and monitor temporary workers and cleaning crews. Applications also include TrashCam to prevent dumping abuses and RoboReceptionist to improve customer service. By using cameras' advanced plug-and-play technology that connects into a company's existing network or wireless access point, WatchMyStuffTM eliminates the need for an expensive, complex DVR or video management equipment. Clients simply log onto to monitor their locations. In a demonstration video, a jewelry store alarm sounds and a recorded voice loudly warns an attempted robber: "You have been photographed and recorded...The video is already stored at another site and a notification has been sent," so destroying the camera is pointless. In real time, the store owner receives the video on his smart phone and notifies the police in seconds. Watch My Stuff can also be used for deterrence by configuring the system to automatically send alerts of triggering events, such as people loitering after hours or someone throwing things in a Dumpster. Flashing lights and a booming voice help scare off any would-be thieves or troublemakers. On the positive side, business owners can use the system to recognize employees who are working after hours and weekends or otherwise contributing beyond the norm. To demonstrate the system's benefits, Kenton Brothers recently partnered with Spay & Neuter Kansas City by donating WatchMyStuffTM hosted video surveillance and monitoring to protect the staff, dogs, cats and property at their inner-city facility at 59th and Troost in Kansas City, Mo. "The system allows us to keep our back door secured and monitored at all times, so our staff definitely feels more secure," notes Michelle Rivera, president. In addition to the security benefits, WatchMyStuffTM allows Spay & Neuter managers to evaluate and improve day-to-day operating procedures. "We can now see what's happening at our front desk from wherever we are," Rivera points out. "That lets us improve our customer service by stepping in when needed to make sure visitors are being greeted and assisted without a long wait."
