(WTNH) -- Standard Security Systems offers modern home security systems and services to keep you and your home safe.
You hear about break-ins and burglaries in the news, so what can you do to protect your home and family? You may be familiar with traditional alarm systems, but there are advanced options available as well, such as:
Remote Security Cameras
- Cameras are a great way to monitor for intruders. In fact, a recent break-in that occurred in Milford resulted in an arrest because the perpetrator was caught on surveillance video.
- And for added security, these cameras can be used to trigger email or text messages that can be sent to your phone when something passes by the camera.
- Home automation is a key feature of modern "lifestyle" services available through a new security system. This includes features that will allow homeowners to control door locks, lights, thermostats and other 110v devices -- all through a smart-phone, tablet or PC.
Remember, home security starts with some basics:
- Locking your doors and windows
- Taking in the mail & newspaper (your home should look occupied)
- Installing outdoor motion lights
- Monitored home security system.
