The Inside Scoop on Residential Security Cameras

Featured

Let’s face it, as much as we would like to think home break-ins will never happen to us, the reality is that it can happen to anyone. At Owen Security Solutions, we believe in always being One Step Ahead. That’s why we recommend home security and surveillance cameras to anyone looking to step up their home security game. 

Proactive Protection 

Surveillance cameras are often considered one of the best crime deterrents available and act as a red flag for anyone who may be attempting to gain access to your home or belongings. More often than not, a residential security camera can stop a break in before it even happens, which saves you repairs, effort, time, money and lots of trouble in the long run.

Peace of Mind

Another great reason to incorporate residential surveillance cameras into your home security system is the peace of mind you will gain by being view your home whenever you like. With modern home security and surveillance cameras, you can now use your mobile device to view live footage of your home, save and protect important recorded video clips or even speak to the person on your front porch. Whether you are out of town for a week or at work for the day, live footage of your home is available 24/7 at the touch of a button! Technicians can install Wi-Fi based cameras or DVR/NVR systems nearly anywhere in or on your home, ensuring your property and loved ones are always protected. 

Video Verification

We can provide around-the-clock monitoring to ensure your home is protected so that you don’t have to.

Smart Home, Smart Homeowner: Using Tax Refunds to Step Up Security

The deadline for filing income taxes is quickly approaching and many homeowners are looking to use their returns for home improvements that have been postponed throughout the year. However, many homeowners overlook one important home improvement that offers value, return on investment, energy savings and peace of mind without using their entire refund.

Home security and smart home technology is an affordable home improvement that can make life more convenient for the homeowner and their families while offering year-round life safety and property protection. These technologies can be controlled through mobile apps and online browsers and are monitored 24/7 by a team of dispatchers who are ready to contact emergency services in the case of a life-threatening event or burglary.

Smart home devices, such as thermostats, door locks, garage door openers, video doorbells, video surveillance and light and small appliance control, can be installed as stand-alone systems or integrated into the home’s security system. In either scenario, these devices are sure to save homeowners time, energy and money.

In addition to the homeowner’s insurance discounts that are offered to those with professionally monitored security systems, utilizing the innovate features of the mobile app can also offer energy-savings. The scheduling and geofencing features allow users to adjust their home’s temperature, light schedule and turn on or off small appliances based on their departure, arrival or preference.

These systems can also save homeowners time and frustration by allowing them to lock and unlock doors or customize temporary entry codes for repair workers, pet-sitters or other visitors. Video monitoring offers a peace of mind by being able to view live and recorded activity at the home from the same mobile app.

Professionally installed security and smart home technology is a lasting investment in your home and future. In addition to protecting your family, it is often reported that these features are often sought after by homebuyers and boost property value.

Protection For Your Furry Family

October is National Animal Safety and Prevention Month. What better way to show your furry family members that you care about them than to use your home security system to protect them when you’re not home?

According to a study done by the American Kennel Club (AKC), 88% of pet owners consider their dogs or cats to be valued family member. Along with the basic needs of these furry family members, pet owners should also remember to consider their pets’ needs in an emergency situation.

Most homes and apartments come standard with some sort of non-monitored smoke, heat and/or carbon monoxide detectors. These devices are great for alerting occupants when they are present, but what happens if you are not home? Not only is your property and possessions at risk, but so is the life of your beloved pet. With a monitored security system, authorities are alerted immediately when they receive signal from your life safety devices. This reduces the risk of the injury or death of a pet due to a house fire, smoke inhalation or carbon monoxide inhalation. These sensors can also be set to send notifications to your phone via a mobile application for added peace of mind.

Many homeowners choose to leave their family pets at home while out of town instead of boarding them in kennels. A monitored security system can be set up with temporary access codes for family members, trusted friends or petsitters to drop by to and check in on the home and animals. This allows access to the home while still offering the confidence that the home is secure and protected. In addition, it allows the homeowner to know when the system is armed and disarmed.

Added benefits to professionally installed and monitored home security systems include:

  • Protecting your belongings and your beloved pet from burglars by alerting authorities if an intrusion occurs.
  • Ensuring your pet is happy and comfortable by monitoring your home’s thermostat remotely using a mobile app. Added bonus–this can also reduce utility bills!
  • Reducing false alarms in your home by having pet-immune motion detectors installed and calibrated by professional technicians to ensure your system can remain effective without false alarming.
  • Taking advantage of the wireless technology offered by professionally installed security systems, eliminating possible damage to the system by your pet while reducing possible risks of electric shock or digestion of unsafe material by your pet.

If you are interested in protecting your loved ones, belongings and furry family members, contact an Owen Security Solutions representative today! Also, be sure to stop by our office and pick up a window decal for your home to alert first responders that there is a loved member of your family inside the home in the event of an emergency!
