Smart Home Security Guard Piper Now Has Night Vision

Piper is many things in a tiny package. The pint-sized home security device — it's literally the size of a pint glass — watches over your house, automates your connected devices and helps you keep in touch with friends. And now with night vision too.

In case you're not familiar, Piper is an all-in-one home security device that lets you keep an eye on your home from anywhere in the world through a mobile app. Its motion sensor makes it simple to be notified when someone enters your house, and you can even turn Piper into an intercom from your phone.

The second-generation Piper nv looks almost exactly like the original, except for a new ring of infrared sensors around the 180-degree camera. The "nv" bit stands for night vision, and those sensors let you see what's happening in your home even in near pitch black conditions. The camera's resolution is also improved, and now offers sharp video with a 3.4-megapixel sensor.

Both Piper models come with motion and sound detection, and a 105-decibel siren that can be deployed in the event of a breach. And both work like a home hub for your connected Z-Wave devices, enabling you to control appliances and lighting from your smartphone.

The Piper nv is on sale now for $US270 in black or white. Meanwhile, you can still buy the original Piper for a cool $US200. Compatible Z-Wave window and door sensors cost $US50 each. [Piper]

    NB: US frequency for Z-Wave is different than for Australia. The page only has a US and European regions so it look like it won't work for Australia (with Z-Wave anyway).

    Looks great!

    Not available in Australia :(

    Yes I contacted Piper and they won't ship to Australia, and even if you could get it on-forwarded it will come with a US power plug and will have different Z-Wave frequencies.

    I really like the look of it though, is there anything similar available in Australia? Everything I've looked at is old-style alarms that don't hook up to Wi-Fi or anything...
