Security Essentials News, Updates & Press Releases

Safety During Summer Months Lexington, Kentucky

Summer is around the corner and for most children that means school is out! As a working parent, it's not always possible to be home with your children 24-hours a day. Whether your children are old enough to stay home while you are away or stay home with a sitter, just because they are on summer break does not mean that burglaries are too! In fact, most burglaries occur during the summer months, all the more reason to be prepared. Burglars aside, anytime you leave your children home alone there are always those nagging questions in the back of your mind: What if there's a fire? Are the doors locked? What if there is an emergency? Are they even home? These are all legitimate concerns that may never go away but there is a simple solution that can give you the peace of mind that you need to enjoy your summer; a monitored home security system.

Home Security Systems

A home security system can monitor your home while you are away at work, on vacation, running errands, etc. and you will also have the ability to keep track of activity inside your home from your smart, tablet or computer. For example, if your children are home alone and they are told not to leave or open the front door for any reason and the front door is opened, you will be notified. Same goes for medical emergencies, or if a fire, flood or carbon monoxide leak is detected. Also, motion sensors can be placed on other doors or gates that are off limits, such as rooms that contain guns or gates that lead to a pool. Security Essentials & Home Entertainment offer affordable solutions for protecting your family from potential burglars and more. Our options include:

- Complete burglar alarm installation
- Monitoring 24-hours a day
- Battery backup systems
- Motion sensors
- Medical pendants and panic buttons
- Fire/Smoke and heat detection
- Carbon monoxide detection

HD Security Camera's

Pairing your home security system with HD security camera's will give you the peace of mind that you need when leaving your children alone. Video surveillance camera's can be placed anywhere throughout the interior or exterior of your home and can be accessed with your smart phone or any web-enabled device. This means that you will be able to see your children in real-time where ever you may be and as an added bonus they may even be more inclined to stay out of trouble because they know you are watching.
