If you already have a security system, think about upgrading your technology in these key areas:
Many older homes have locks that are too easy to pick. New technology also allows a lock keypad system to alert you via email or text when a door is opened or closed. These keypads come for both indoor and outdoor entranceways for maximum protection.
LiveWatch offers both indoor and outdoor cameras with half the setup time, twice the interactive features and as much support as you'd like. The video cameras run over your wireless Internet, eliminating the need for DVRs or other recording devices.
These devices monitor movement in the house or yard so you can protect against burglaries — or any teenagers sneaking out of the house. Most are pet-friendly, so Fido's late-night wandering doesn't initiate an unnecessary visit from the police.
