In this economy there are many of us who have had to resort to finding employment away from home for sometimes long periods of time. This often leaves our loved ones home alone. For peace of mind and security for all who are involved there are many products on today’s market that are cost efficient that can alert you when someone enters the property. You can have a system as simple as an infrared wireless driveway alarm that will send an alarm to a receiver in the house when it detects a vehicle or person entering the property. You can have a wireless driveway system that will only detect moving metal or combine the systems to monitor vehicles that enter the drive and an infrared system to monitor people entering at a different location such as a backyard gate ecetera. You could expand this simple system with different components that will actually turn on a light each time the driveway alarm is triggered. If you wish to deter any unwanted visitors you can also wire a siren to the receiver!
Another cost efficient item available on today’s market is the wireless intercom systems. You have a choice of just the doorbell intercom system or a video doorbell system which allows you not only to speak to the person at the door but also to see the person at your door. You can never be too careful. Knowing who is at your door without having to open it leaves you with a great sense of security.
Of course there is always the option of Video Surveillance Security Cameras. These come in a wide variety of CCTV, Outdoor, Hidden, Self Contained and Imitation models. You can constantly monitor any activity that occurs on the premise. Depending on what unit you install you would be able to view live footage, record and store or view from a different location using an iPhone or Blackberry.
These security products are very user friendly and can be installed by any home owner. Another great thing about these products mentioned is that there is no additional charges incurred when you purchase these systems. A one time purchase price, receive and install the system of your choice and you are all set. It really is amazing on how much peace of mind these security systems can give. Just knowing that you will never be surprised by a visitor again is very comforting to most of us.
