Advancements in home security have reached almost “Jetson” realities. Locking all your doors and securing your windows is no longer the standard in home security. New technologies have open up numerous possibilities.

Security for the private homeowner now reaches far beyond being alerted to an intruder. Wireless alerts and streaming video now allow you to be notified if a vital system in your home has failed. Any system within your home can be monitored and managed from virtually anywhere in the world. Imagine that one of the water hoses burst from the washer. The amount of damage that could be while you are at work could be immense. A quick alert could save you thousands in repairs. Furnace and air handling systems can also be managed from any PC.

Additional devices can be added to your home that will let you know if certain areas have been accessed. IF you have children, there are systems that will let you know if they have arrived home safely. Other devices can be added to private spaces like; home offices, gun cabinets, medicine cabinets, or liquor cabinets that alert you no matter where you are that access has been made.

New advancements in streaming video have made the “Nanny Cam” obsolete. Hiding bulky camcorders within stuffed toys is no longer necessary when it comes to monitoring your children’s safety while they are in the care of others within your home. Checking on your children can be as easy as logging on to a website. A simple password will prevent any unwanted views within your home. The amount of cameras and placement of them is totally up to you. Just keep in mind that you may have to disclose the location of each camera to anyone that enters your home as a hired worker. This depends upon what your state law requires.

If you are currently using a security monitoring company ask what additional services they offer. Upgrading your service may be quite simple. If you are not using a security monitoring company, you can still take advantage of the numerous amount of “do it yourself” security devices available at your local electronics superstore. Check online for additional home security options that may not be available within retail stores.
