Let’s face it. Installing home security is not something that easily crosses our minds when we are building a home. Depending on where exactly you live, having the opportunity to think about your home’s security is not your top priority. However, according to the Federal Bureau of Intelligence or FBI, a burglary occurs in the US every 13 seconds. That is alarming, right?
When someone breaks into your house, it is not only your valuables that are at risk. You are at risk too. Thankfully, there are a number of things that you can do to increase the security of your home and to ward off any burglars and thieves.
Let’s take a look at home security system, especially those provided by the industry leader: ADT.
Cameras are everywhere these days: from your smartphones to mirrorless cameras and the heavy DSLRs. It is not surprising that camera technology is advanced now and can be used for home security.
As the first line of defense, a camera-based home security system can work marvels to your home. Any burglars, who can see a home security camera in your home, would think twice before breaking into your house.
When installing a video camera, choose something that has high-quality video and can work even during the night. If you are installing an outdoor security camera, choose something that can watch a large swath of your property. If you are using it in your hallway, choose a wider lens with the ability to zoom in the face of the intruder.
Your security system should also allow you to monitor and even fully secure your house even if you are not at home. One of the leading security system companies, ADT, has an ADT security mobile app which allows you to protect your house even if you are not at home.
One of the products of ADT, the keypad door lock, allowing you to use a keypad to protect the doors of your home. The code can be changed through the control panel or through the ADT security mobile app. ADT also allows you to see everything that the camera captures for easy monitoring.
Should anything happen, having a home security system is still your best option to ensure the safety of your home and your family. Using technology to maintain control over your home’s security anywhere you are, will give you peace of mind.
