Choosing To Invest In Security

When you own a business, you have two choices. You can either decide to invest money in replacing stolen goods, or to invest money in a nice security system. When I first started my business, I decided to ignore security measures altogether, which caused me to net a loss for the year. However, after a suggestion from my mentor, I decided that it might be wise to install a nice security system. You wouldn't believe how much better things got. Within a few weeks, theft was almost completely eliminated. My blog is all about helping you to tighten up security measures.

Protecting Your Children With Your Security System

by Victoria George

Each year, Americans report over 2,000,000 home burglaries. In 30% of these instances, the criminals gain entry through an unlocked door or window. You may be considering buying a security system to protect your possessions, but buying one can do more than protect you from thieves. If you invest in the right product, you can keep your children safe, even when you are still at work. 

Video Stream

Experts estimate that 12% of children between the ages of five and twelve care for themselves at least one afternoon a week. Although preschool children should never be left without adult supervision, a significant number also spent at least a small amount of time each week in self-care. One way to protect your children while they are unsupervised is to use a home security system to monitor them as well as to keep out intruders. Remote access will allow you to watch a live video stream of your children's comings and goings. Your older children might object, but using a video monitoring system lets you know when they arrive home and if they are safe. You can also see if they bring friends home with them and if they are breaking any rules. With home cameras and a video stream, you will always know exactly who is in your home and what they are doing. 

Motion Sensors

Installing motion sensors is particularly effective for toddlers and infants. If someone does enter your child's room or attempts to open a window, a motion sensor will alert you. It will also give you a warning if the family dog or young siblings get near the baby when you are in another part of the house. You can set the monitors up near sensitive areas in your home, such as your office, garage, or gun safe. Some security systems will even send you a text if the motion sensors go off, so you are always informed about your children's safety, whether you are outside or just in the basement

Home security systems do more than keep thieves out of your home. They also keep you informed of what your children are doing when you are not present. Remote access to home video and alerts from motion sensors will help keep your children safe and give you peace of mind when you are stuck at work or in traffic. If the baby is napping, you can go outside without worry.

With the right security system, you can continue active parenting when you are away from home. So talk with a security systems company, such as Videotec Corporation, today to build up your home's security for your children's safety.
