The Benelli M4 Cerakote is the same M4 tactical shotgun armed forces and police agencies across the country have employed for years, but with a new coat of armor. The Cerakote coating breathes new life into this firearm, adding more corrosion, scratch and wear resistance to the weapon, up to 50 times more than other coatings. Underneath, you’ll still find the classic M4 design, with its Auto Regulating Gas Operated (ARGO) system and flexibility in attachments and ammunition. MSRP $2,399.
It’s impossible to have eyes everywhere, watching the inside and outside of your home every day and night — or is it? With a Defender wireless security system on the job, wireless cameras monitor activity up to 450 feet away in the daylight; the night vision, powered by 24 infrared LEDs, illuminates up to 75 feet. The Sentinel 8 CH 1TB DVR system comes with six cameras, three receivers, 10 power adapters, mounting hardware and an IR remote controller with batteries. MSRP $1,399.99.
You don’t have to advertise your security setup to all who walk by; hidden lights can catch unwanted visitors by surprise. Revolve LED outdoor security lights sneakily attach to the undersides of eaves, so they stay out of plain view when not illuminated. Product options include a motion-sensor version and a dusk-to-dawn model, which is designed to wake up as soon as the sun sets. Choose between two or three lights per unit, as well as between 180- or 270-degree coverage. LEDs provide approximately 50,000 hours of life. MSRP $84–$99.99.
Take comfort knowing your weapon is secured from unauthorized access. The SpeedVault Biometric 500 from GunVault only opens with an approved fingerprint scan. Additionally, multiple mounting options enable you to store your firearm wherever you deem the best and most convenient location. MSRP $334.99.
The NetBright networked wireless lighting system really brightens up a place. Like most motion-detecting spotlights, it turns on at the first sign of movement. But unlike traditional lights, NetBright’s smart solution is a linked network. When one light is triggered, the rest follow suit, so within seconds, you have a well-lit perimeter. Each light produces 200 lumens, and you can connect up to 50 lights in one network. MSRP $239.99 for six-pack.
Smart security means maintaining control over all aspects of the system, regardless of your personal location — and that’s exactly what DSC Touch offers. Tyco Security Products has devised a 7-inch touch-screen smart panel that allows users to assess the situation on the home front remotely, thanks to an operating system based on Google’s Android that incorporates Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Z-Wave technology. It also integrates Alarm.com for an alert system. Additionally, a built-in panel camera records images during an alarm event as critical evidence. MSRP not available.
