When we think about security at home, we are usually thinking of the regular alarm systems that we can get from independent companies. And those alarm systems are really good. If you set your alarm and you have the motion sensors, the alarm is triggered as soon as the sensor goes off. But you are not going to have your alarm on 24/7. If you are awake, you are not going to set the alarm on, because you will be going upstairs and downstairs all the time. And even when the alarm is on, you can get false alarms sometimes.
The solution is never to get rid of the alarm system, because it is a vital first step in keeping your house secure. What you will want to do is add other features. One thing you can do is get a wireless security camera system for your home. You do not necessarily have to get ten different cameras to place in each corner of the house. But if you get three or four cameras in the system, you can place them strategically to get the maximum coverage. For instance, you can have one at the front door area, along with one by your backdoor.
You can also have a couple of cameras in parts of the house where someone might enter into. If your alarm does ever go off at night, you can quickly go on your phone or tablet to check out the camera. It will show you what is going on in real time, or you can quickly rewind it by a minute to see the moment the alarm went off. It is going to show you whether the alarm was triggered by a person breaking into your home, or it was a false positive because your cat or dog moved through the area – or something of that sort!
