There is not only web 2.0 but Home Security 2.0 as well.
In today’s New American homes you will find Alarm Systems or at least house
pre-wired for an alarm system, but the monitoring service will work as long
as you remember to activate it before you leave home. In other words it
gives you the flexibility to activate your monitoring system when you
decide, giving you the control over it. Now, what happens if you forget to
activate your alarm system? In this case let’s hope and pray that no
unwanted visit will occur.
Well, we are living on a daily changing technology and in this case it
offer us the new Home Security 2.0.
The new 2.0 alarm systems will use the same pattern of funcionality just throught different media. The control panel located in your home will talk to all the devices in the alarm circuit including security video ip cameras and sensors and send a alert via Wi-Fi to all the attached command centers such like your cellphone, monitor command center of the monitoring provider and web-enabled space for future reference, utilizing your broadband connection or celullar network, allowing you to access this occurences via web-enabled devices, such as cellphones, desktops, laptops and PDAs.
It could get very interesting and complex when you decide to have digital video added to your package, because if any sensor get activated, let's say the side door gets open at 7:15pm on Friday evening while you are out for dinner, you and the authorities will be notify immediately, you can even get it via sms message to your cellphone. Then you could access the secured web space to check out what happened, if so; then more if you have a pan-tilt based security camera you could zoom in to view realtime.
This new home security 2.0 are capable of a lot more features, like cooling down your AC before you make it home turn ON or OFF your security flood lights, to the point that you could program this remote monitoring control system, react just about anything.
Choose Your Home Security Companies Carefully
Get a free home estimate, if available. There can be many hidden costs involved or charges for additional services not discussed. Then ask any questions you may have of the managers of the home security companies. Ask about the installation personnel who will install your system. Are they subcontracted or fulltime? How are they trained? What is their background? What is their job experience? Ask to see proof of the installer’s qualifications.
If the home security companies have security personnel ask if these use weapons. Are they trained in firearms? What is their background? Don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions your family’s safety is at stake.
Finally, when you are deciding between home security companies don’t base your decision on cost. You get what you pay for so don’t choose the cheapest, or for that matter, the most expensive. Choose the most qualified. If you did your homework then you should know who meets your needs best.
