alarm protection

Today, home security systems can still sound alarms, but are much more difficult to forget about or foil. A software supported security system can send you a text message every time a door or window is opened, whether you’ve armed it or not. It can stream live video or send still images of what’s happening in your garage, living room, backyard or wherever you deploy a security camera. You can even be alerted before the break in, the moment the burglar pulls into the driveway!BUILDING A SECURITY SYSTEM Smart systems consist of hardware that doesn’t look a lot different than it did twenty five years ago. There are some specialized sensors and video cameras that weren’t common in the past and window and door contact switches have gotten a lot smaller, but the basics are the same: a control panel or console, magnetic contact switches, motion sensors, a siren. The new systems may also be connected to central monitoring stations, as do many old style security systems.

We're happy to report that the new Ecobee4 boasts all the same features as it predecessor, and more, thanks to the addition of built in Amazon Alexa voice service capabilities. That means you can have the thermostat do everything that the Amazon Echo and its siblings can, such as control smart devices, shop, play music, and hear the latest news and weather, all using Alexa voice commands. Want complete wireless supremacy over the lights in your home?The Philips Hue line delivers with bulbs that let you control not only the intensity of the light, but also the color. It can get pricey, to be sure, but the Hue ecosystem has been around long enough that it works with just about every other system out there, from Alexa, to IFTTT, to Siri using the Philips Hue Bridge. Not interested in colorful lights but still want that incredible granular control over an all white bulb?Philips has the Hue White coming in at an almost bargain price, at least for smart bulbs. It even has bulbs you can use outdoors.

surveillance camera installation

I was a loyal Comcast customer for over 20 years. About 8 months ago I switched from ADT to Xfinity home security. We had confusion on if I had a break in then whether or not I would have to fill out a police report, turn it in to them and they would provide a recording of all my cameras for whatever period of time I deemed necessary. The security measures are worthless I’ve spoken to numerous police officers. I was never rude and tried to treat each person respectfully. Any crook with a 3rd grade education knows that if you cut the easily “accessible wire” the system ceases to function.
