About Y-cam Protect

Crime is a fact of life today. At Y-cam, we know the real
cost of burglary is not just what is taken, but the turmoil that follows.

No contracts
& call-out fees

Stay connected when
internet or power goes down

Why ‘Self-Monitored’ security

There was a time when only 2 types of alarms existed; one was cheap, but noisy and
ignored. The other was secure, but came with costly contracts and call-out fees.
Y-cam's new 'self monitored' security gives you best of both worlds and
puts the control back into your hands.
