How Tragedy Brought Madison To Piper

We can’t tell you enough how amazing it is to hear the stories you share with us about your Piper experiences. In our latest blog spotlight, we’re sharing a Q&A we conducted with a Piper customer named Madison, whose father introduced her to our security systems.
Find out why he bought her a Piper and how it makes living alone easier for her, in our interview below:
Hi Madison, can you tell us why you chose Piper as your security system?
My dad did some research, found Piper, and surprised me with it. It was an easy decision because for a low, single-payment Piper offers nearly the same security as mainline professional systems.
I started looking into security systems after my friend was murdered in her apartment. After this, I was very uneasy about coming home alone and my parents knew I was scared. They got me a Piper so that I would feel more secure, which I do.

Is Piper an easy solution for your living style as an apartment dweller?
Piper is extremely easy for apartment living! I could set up the unit easily and I love having control from wherever I am via the phone app. I live in a studio apartment and can see my entire apartment with the camera view. 

Does Piper cover a good amount of your home?
I live in a studio apartment so Piper covers my entire apartment. The camera range is quite wide so I think in a typical home it would cover a lot of space as well.


Do you feel safer in your home with Piper?

Absolutely! As I mentioned above, my friend was murdered in her apartment. The man who killed her was the building handy-man and he had access to her apartment. He was waiting inside when she came home from work and ambushed her. The fact that this happened to someone I knew was traumatizing. I was scared to come home because I really don’t know who has access to my apartment or their background. Although my apartment manager assured me I was safe, I was NOT convinced. With Piper, I know if/when someone has entered and I will know who they were.

Who do you trust to check in on your home when you’re unavailable?
When I am unavailable, I only fully trust my family and friends to check on my home.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Get a Piper! You won’t regret it! I have the door alarm but would also recommend an outlet switch. I keep a light on so I can always see inside, so that works, but I would prefer to not leave a light on all the time.
