A little bit of manufacturer info:

The Y-cam Protect Alarm intelligently knows you have not set a PIN, it will ask you to select a 4 Digit Number and then ask for this each time you which to disarm using Alexa voice control commands.
- NEW Phone Call and SMS alarm trigger alerts –When the alarm is triggered you will instantly get a phone call informing you of your alarm trigger and alerting you to which sensor has triggered the alarm. If you have a camera you can instantly visually verify what is going on before taking the appropriate action. The video link is https://www.youtube.com/
- NEW Cameras record on alarm trigger –Protect can work seamlessly with Y-cam’s cameras. When the Protect alarm is triggered, the Y-cam camera* will automatically start recording.
- NEW Sensor override + sensor override indicator – this allows you to set the alarm if a sensor is faulty or out of battery. The indicator will tell you through the app which sensor is the cause of the issue.
- New Disable individual sensor – you can now set the alarm by disabling a sensor. An example of this is if you want to keep a top window open to allow heat out then you can disable this particular sensor and then still be able to set the rest of the alarm
- NEW Customisable home mode – this in effect is the ability to create a zone. It means you can select which sensor are armed when you select home mode. This means you can set a zone up for example when you go to sleep you can deselect any upstairs sensors and then arm everything downstairs.
- NEW Signal strength indicator – this is an indicator on the app showing you how strong the data signal is and which carrier is being use
It is indeed a pet friendly system, as we bounce all over the catservatory all day and night and we've not have one false alarm while its been activated.
