Do-it-yourself has just come to home security, thanks to smart communications firm Ooma Inc.

screen-shot-2017-01-08-at-10-51-58-pmThe company, which unveiled its Ooma Home Monitoring system at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week, offers real-time notifications via phone, SMS, e-mail alert or in-app as well as the ability to call 911 remotely.
