Ever since humans have lived in their own private dwellings, security has been an issue. But thankfully, as burglars and other criminals have advanced in their craftiness, we have always advanced when it comes to inventive ways to keep our homes safe. Advanced technology has incorporated itself so seamlessly into our lives that it seems like a natural step to also include it in how we decide to keep our homes safe, so let the team at Security Essentials fill you in on incorporating technology into home security near Lexington, KY.
An old saying goes that you “can’t reinvent the wheel,” which means that some inventions are already so perfect that they can hardly be improved upon. At Security Essentials, we like to think that even the best ideas can be perfected, which is how we approach residential alarm systems. Alarm systems have been a staple of home security for decades, and that does not seem to be changing as we are soon to move into the 2020s. Alarm systems are a great way to detect intruders to your home, both to alert you, as well as alert the proper authorities, to ensure that you, your family, and your home are always safe.
For decades, security cameras were primarily used in stores, government buildings, and other public places. But you don’t need to be a museum exhibition or a celebrity to feel safer having 24/7 surveillance around your home. Today’s security cameras are so advanced that you no longer need a dedicated security professional to scroll through hours of footage on your behalf. Instead, with many security cameras, the footage is stored digitally, and can often be accessed on your phone, guaranteeing that you can assess your home’s safety wherever you are.
The tip of not opening the door to strangers has been a staple of parental wisdom for likely as long as doors have existed. But as our lives become increasingly complicated and our homes become a location for strangers to visit as never before thanks to the outsourcing of labor for companies like Amazon, Uber, and Door Dash, ensuring that we know who has come to call has never been more important. Doorbell cameras alert you not only whenever your doorbell is rung (meaning that you can hear if your favorite cousin has come to visit even if you are in another room), but also whenever movement or suspicious behavior is detected, preventing you from potentially opening yourself up to danger by answering the door for someone you don’t know.
As technology advances, it is likely that criminals will advance along with it to continue jeopardizing our safety. However, Security Essentials is committed to being ahead of them at every step of the way to ensure the safety, comfort, and peace of mind of our clients. To learn more, contact us today.
