TI's OMAP3503 processor with its 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 core provides the computational power and I/O necessary to run Homebox.
In addition, if an intruder cuts off the power supply, a backup battery runs the Homebox for four hours so it can send an intrusion alert, either with an e-mail message, text message, MMS or voice recorded call, and then respond to the owner's instructions.
