Deep Sentinel vs Ring Virtual Guard

Deep Sentinel Monitoring and Ring’s Virtual Guard offer a similar security solution for homes, but they have a vastly different approach on how they handle monitoring and the types of services they provide.

VIRTUAL SECURITY GUARDS


VIRTUAL SECURITY GUARDS


Deep Sentinel is the only system that allows live guards to
verbally engage with suspects in real-time to prevent a
crime before it occurs. Deep Sentinel guards can see and
hear everything, and can also trigger sirens through the
camera’s speaker.

Ring has made a name for themselves with their self-monitored cameras, putting all of the control in your hands. They’ve recently
announced that they’ll be partnering with a Virtual Guard
company overseas to offshore live monitoring for their
customers.
