Today’s home security has extended far beyond simple locks and deadbolts. Thanks to technological advancements, homeowners who want utmost peace of mind can beef up their security and surveillance using these three measures.
An Alarm System
Alarm systems may have been around the block but that doesn’t mean they didn’t get better. Thanks to technologies such as the internet and sensors, you can have a wireless alarm system installed on your front door, windows and garage and get notified via app or SMS.
A robust alarm system is the perfect complement to CCTVs in that they form a multi-function security platform. You can also have them connect to your other smart devices or appliance in a variety of ways.
A CCTV System
CCTVs are here to stay. They’re cost-effective and have dozens of features that work. You can choose from different types depending on what you need.
A wireless CCTV device can be hooked up just about anywhere you want. They can be made to record, zoom or change angles in real time. You just have to pick the right CCTV that has the features you want, e.g., DVR, low-light or hidden and more.
CCTVs are scalable in the fact that you can have more than one active all the time. For instance, you can have one looking at the front door while another is pointed at the front gate. When it comes to convenience and accessibility these home security devices are one of the best.
Adding a cloud storage system to your alarm and CCTV allows you to maximize each and every devices’ limits.
When the videos are stored on the cloud you can call up any device that has access to the internet and view or replay footage without needing to go home. You can be on vacation and still keep an eye on things 24/7.
