Comprehensive, Remote Security
Not too long ago, a home monitoring system meant nothing more than a CCTV network wired to a recording device. These days there are market-ready products that offer your family the security measures once considered near science fiction. Consider the integrated biometric entry protection system. Essentially, you replace all the doorknobs and handles at access points to your home with biometric, smart locks. The real kicker is that when combined with your security cameras, you can use a simple phone app to see who is at your front door and decide whether to give them access.
Beyond The Nanny Cam
No parent can genuinely feel completely comfortable at the idea of leaving their children with a nanny. With a network of smart cameras around the house, you can view your kids in real-time, ensuring they are safe and that all is in order. Even if we know our children are being taken care of by someone we trust to keep them safe, there are other issues, such as discipline and daily routine.
Let’s Not Forget Pets!

You may already be aware of automated smart feeding gadgets, automatic doggy doors, and even the smart speakers that will play prerecorded samples of your voice to your pets at specific hours. Combining any of these systems with your home monitoring system means you can actively control and subsequently manage just about every part of your pet’s day while you are at work.
This one may not be immediately helpful to your family’s security. Still, it turns out your home insurance company may decrease your premiums based on the level of home security you implement. Also, any claims you make may be more easily resolved, especially if the claim relates to anything captured on camera or detected by any of your security and home monitoring system’s connected sensors.
