The Effects of Burglary

As anyone can attest who has had the unfortunate experience of being burglarized, the effects can be lasting, from a sense of violation to increased fears and helplessness. Sometimes, they find it difficult to be alone at night, living in a home that feels unsafe and changed.

Despite this, a recent poll by The Zebra found that 54% of respondents didn’t have a home security system. When you consider that 60% of burglars would move to a different target if a security system existed, it’s evident that just the presence of these systems provides a significant measure of safety.

The Arrival of the Wireless Security System 

Early home security systems were hardwired, requiring wires running through ceilings and walls. Even today, these systems may be the best solution for larger properties, estates, and new construction.

As reliable wireless sensors entered the market and home networks became robust and secure, manufacturers began developing wireless security systems. Today, most systems communicate over Wi-Fi.

The Features Found in Wireless Home Security Systems

Wireless security systems typically include a control panel, sensors, security cameras, panic buttons, and a monitoring service. The control panel alerts you and the monitoring service should a sensor be triggered or a camera spot a stranger. You can immediately pull up the live video feed on your mobile device.

Today, these systems also possess smart security cameras with night vision, high-resolution video, and two-way audio that lets you talk to the person on camera. Machine learning enables them to detect unusual events, such as someone walking back and forth in front of the garage. It differentiates between people, animals, and movement caused by weather conditions. They’re also compatible with other smart home devices, such as door locks and lighting, enabling a quick and effective response in the event of an intruder.

Because they’re wireless, these systems are easily scalable, adding on as needed. They are also flexible, enabling our team to place security cameras that offer the best surveillance in the most vulnerable areas, which often changes as your family and property evolve.
