Video Doorbell Captures Escaped Convict

August 13, 2019

At American Defense Systems, we recommend video doorbells to all of our customers. It’s the easiest and most cost effective way to add surveillance to your home security system. This week, a couple in Tennessee was able to capture footage of an escaped convict who was on the run from Tennessee law enforcement agents since Wednesday of last week.





It all happened on Sunday morning at around 3:30 AM. Ann and Harvey Taylor got an alert from their home security system, and a notification from their Video Doorbell, letting them know there was activity outside their front door.


Their home is located on the outskirts of Henning, Tennessee. They don't get many visitors living this far out so you can imagine how shocked they were. When they opened their video doorbell application on their smartphone and noticed taller man with a beard, wearing camouflage clothing and a backward baseball cap in real time. He was fumbling through a refrigerator that they keep outside and under a carport. When they saw the image and the man’s face, they immediately recognized him – his face had been all over the news, every day since the middle of last week.



This video doorbell let these home owners know there was trouble outside. They were able to quickly call the police and the prisoner was found a few hours later, hiding in a field. This is an amazing story of how surveillance, and video access can provide more benefits than just being able to tell the delivery driver to leave your Amazon package out back.


Living in a smaller rural community, this could have been a very bad situation for this couple. By getting an alert that there was activity outside their home, they were able to react quickly and get the authorities involved.


Protecting your home and family starts with smart security, but adding a video doorbell to your system can be a life saver.



With American Defense System installing the Skybell Video Doorbell, you can access your video feed through your mobile app. Instead of having multiple applications on your phone, you can access video, control your thermostat, lock your front door and arm or disarm your system from anywhere.
