I originally looked into a home security system for the sake of the savings on my homeowners insurance, and I figured out that the discount on my payments would cover the investment into the security system.
When I researched further, I discovered that new security systems offer a lot of beneficial and convenient features.
The setup was quick and easy, but because everything is wireless, there was no need to drill a lot of holes into walls and ceilings. There is not a mess of wires or a big control panel detracting from aesthetics. The central hub is really compact, streamlined and easy to navigate. I now have surveillance cameras and security lights installed around the perimeter of the house. The machine is unobtrusive and motion activated. If anyone enters the property, the lights come on and I get an SMS notification. So far, I’ve gotten lots of video of cats, squirrels, the occasional raccoon, possum and delivery men. If somebody steps up on the front porch, I can see who is knocking on my door and even answer them. I don’t even need to be at home. From virtually anywhere, I have access to the cameras, indoor and outdoor lights and automated door locks. When I pull into the driveway after work, the garage door automatically opens and unique lights come on. I have the peace of mind of knowing that no one has entered my apartment during my absence. With glass breakage sensors, an alarm system and a monitoring supplier watching over the property, I feel much safer and secure.
