I live alone and am very aware of the rising crime rate in my local area.
- I often hear sirens in the middle of the night.
I considered getting myself a guard dog but don’t really have the time to properly care for a pet. I work very long hours and by the time I get home in the evening, I simply want to eat dinner and relax. I don’t want to feed, walk, bathe and play with a giant dog. I don’t want to deal with fur all over my rugs and furniture. I decided to invest into a security system for my home. I spent the money on a top-of-the-line system in order to take advantage of the latest technology. Because the entire security system is wireless, the installation process was quick and non-invasive. There was no need to tear holes into the walls and ceilings. Plus, all of the components are extremely compact and non-obtrusive. They don’t detract from aesthetics. I barely even notice the small cameras or sensors, but I certainly enjoy the function they provide. If anyone enters the perimeter of my property, a light flashes and an alarm alerts me. I can watch real time video footage on my smartphone and see who has driven into the driveway or is stepping onto my porch. I can even converse with them without ever opening the door. When I come home from work, I can be sure that the house is completely secure. I can unlock the front door remotely and even switch on lights.
