Home security has changed immensely in the last 10 years, it went from a simple key pad, sensors, motion detector, cameras and an alarm, to an entire smart home automation system that connects you to the home like never before! As consumers we get so caught up in the thermostat control products like nest or the doorbell camera, that you can purchase separately at your local electronics store, that we lose track of the main purpose for the service, that being home security. At the end of the day the most important feature of a smart home automation and security system is the security! That often gets overlooked with all of the new products rolling out into the market every time you turn on the TV.

In addition to all of these great gadgets and smart home features, we are missing the most important thing of all, the 24/7 professional police monitoring. Together with the motion detectors, window sensors, door sensors, sign in your yard, door chimes and ear piercing alarm the system is designed to keep you safe, secure and give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Did you know if your alarm is tripped, the service will call you, if you don't answer they will call your emergency contact person, if they don't answer they will immediately dispatch the police to your home? This fast thinking and quick action can mean the difference between life and death. Now we never want to think anyone would break into our homes, we all think our neighborhoods are safe and secure. However everyone does think that until there is a break in. Most home break ins happen in the nicest areas, where people assume they are safe and criminals can prey on their assumptions and know that if they break in there's a high likelihood you have valuables worth taking.

Don't have nightmares now or start putting bars on your windows, with today's modern day home security systems you can have your home security system up and running in a day and rest peacefully that same night. Most security systems are discreet, small slim door and window sensors, a motion detector placed high in a corner, cameras positioned strategically so that they aren't in your way but at the same time they are capturing every time somebody comes or goes from your home. We don't ever want to believe we would need the police or fire department but a wise man once told me, “it's better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it.”
