Piper nv review


The connected security cam that wants to double as a smart home hub

Highly customisable ; Works well as a security device ; Slick app

Flaky networking ; Iffy smart home integration ; Average video quality

The Piper nv wants to be the brains of your smart home but right now it's better just being the brawn

The big question is ‘is the Piper nv worth the money?’ and in a word, yes, it is. The first generation Piper classic was a good entry into the home automation/home security industry, but it was lacking in several areas, mainly with regards to the...

Review: Piper NV


There are plenty of home security units out there. There are some home automation units too. Not many combine that, and do it well. Piper NV, the update[...]

A good looking device that delivers what it promises. The price is a bit on the higher side, but with the ability to add accessories, this is a great option.

Piper nv iControl security network review

Adding Piper Functionality : IControl Piper nv


It does not seem all that long ago that I was first introduced to the Piper product. Actually it was around two months ago that I came across this home security device which streams live images to your smartphone and sends out warnings regarding events...

Like the original version of the product, Piper nv is available in a choice of black or white. The product has grow slightly in size and now has measurements of 164 x 87 x 65mm (H x W x D). This increase in size has possibly allowed some new features...

Piper NV – Review


Home automation is something that is only really limited by your imagination, possibly what accessories you can buy and possibly also by how much money you have. You get the idea though.... One of the more intriguing things I saw at MWC was the Piper...

Specs Overall the Piper NV is a cracking piece of kit, a piece of kit that gives you the potential to create something unique, so custom designed by yourself, something special. But to fully do this you need some expertise in Z-Wave, some networking...

Icontrol Networks Piper nv


The Icontrol Networks Piper nv is a unique security camera that doubles as a home automation hub. This time around it offers night vision, a more robust camera sensor, and a faster processor.

Excellent HD image detail. Pan, tilt, and zoom functions. Sharp night vision. Integrates with Z-Wave devices. Two-way audio.

No Web app. No local storage.

Last but not least, the Live Video tab is where you go to view live streaming video. You can view the stream in full screen mode from a fish-eye perspective, pinch the image to zoom in and out, and use finger swipes to engage the pan and tilt features....

Icontrol Networks Piper NV review


One of the beautiful things about DIY home security is that it champions piecemeal installation -- you can grab a SmartThings hub for 99 bucks, the brand's own open/close sensor for another $54, a Dropcam Pro for $199 and a Schlage Camelot Touchscreen...

From setup to shutdown, Icontrol Networks' $269 or £230 Piper NV all-in-one security device was an absolute delight to use.

You'll spend more upfront than some other standalone security options. It doesn't have an IFTTT channel or offer partnerships with third-party brands beyond its basic Z-Wave integrations.

For easy, seamless DIY home security and automation integration, look no further than the Piper NV.
