security door locks

security signs

Even if you are only leaving your home for a short time, the habit of locking all entries is one that can save you from the horrible experience of a break in. Outside lighting can be just as effective at deterring burglars as expensive security systems. You should ensure that your doors are kept well lit at all times. When an intruder sees that invading your home will put him or her in the spotlight, they probably will not bother with your property. Outdoor lighting systems are only effective when they are in good repair, though, so make sure you change light bulbs when necessary and test them periodically. One of the best methods of stopping the threat of burglary is to be a good neighbor. This costs absolutely nothing, but it is one of the most effective ways to ensure that your home and your neighborhood are kept safe. Simply talking with the people in your area and discussing any suspicious activity can turn your community from a potential goldmine for burglars into a crime free safe zone. Criminals prefer areas in which the residents do not look out for each other. For this reason, being a conscientious neighbor can vastly improve your home's security. Living alone can be especially frightening if you are concerned about home security.

alarm monitoring systems

You can choose a basic security system for protection against intruders, or you can opt for all the bells and whistles. ADT gives you options to add on video surveillance services, environmental disaster protection, and home automation products. Video surveillance can include indoor cameras, outdoor cameras, and video doorbells. The cameras through ADT have 720p HD video recording with night vision. Cameras are triggered by motion detectors to record video clips that you can view, save, and store on the ADT app. You can program the app to send you the video or an alert whenever one of your cameras records a new clip. Through the ADT app, you can watch live feed of your cameras at any time and record videos to save to your account. The Ring video doorbell includes two way audio, so you can speak through your app to anyone on your doorstep. For environmental disaster protection, ADT offers carbon monoxide detectors, smoke and heat sensors, and flood or water leak sensors. Brinks wants you to be happy with the security you choose for your home. That’s why you can choose between DIY and professional installation.
