Catching Santa red-handed with Cocoon

Catching Father Christmas on camera might actually happen this year, with Cocoon home security's Subsound Technology

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

We all know that Father Christmas won’t be able to land his sleigh and bring you your presents if you’re awake to see him. Noone’s ever spotted him visiting a home on his busiest night of the year.

Well, we have a challenge for you. As a magical man, Santa knows whether you’re fast asleep or not, but this Christmas there are Cocoons looking after homes around the world. We know that he can sneak past traditional home security sensors, avoiding their motion detectors. What we don’t yet know is if Father Christmas can magically avoid being picked up by Cocoon’s Subsound® technology.

Catching Santa red-handed

Cocoon doesn’t just detect movement that’s in front of its camera, it detects movement through sound. This means Cocoon senses movement most cameras would miss, across multiple rooms and floors of your home. When moving through a room we have to push through the air, making it vibrate. These vibrations create low-level sound that people can’t hear, but Cocoon’s sensitive microphone can.

When Cocoon is armed it alerts you to unusual movement in your home. Father Christmas has learnt to magically dodge the motion sensors used by traditional home security systems, but an armed Cocoon should catch red-handed. Unless he can deliver your Christmas presents without moving through the air in your home!

This Christmas Eve, why not arm your Cocoon?

Once you’ve hung your stockings up, don’t try staying awake to spot Father Christmas – it never works anyway. This Christmas Eve, why not arm your Cocoon and see if you can catch a glimpse of jolly old Saint Nick delivering your gifts? Santa tumbling down the chimney with a sack full of Christmas presents should create enough festive sound waves to trigger Cocoon.

On Christmas morning, thanks to Cocoon, you may wake up to a video of Santa sipping sherry and munching mince pies in your front room.
