I live alone and am undoubtedly aware of the rising crime rate in our local area; I often hear sirens in the middle of the night and so I considered getting myself a guard dog but don’t really have the time to properly care for a pet.
I work a lot and so by the time I get home in the evening, I simply want to eat lunch and relax.
I don’t want to feed, walk, bathe or take care of a big dog and I also don’t want to deal with fur all over our rugs and furniture. I decided to invest into a security system for our house and so I spent the money on a top-of-the-line system. I wanted the latest technology; Because the entire security method is wireless, the installation process was quick and easy. There was no need to tear holes into the walls and ceilings… Plus, all of the pieces are small and non-obtrusive. They don’t detract from aesthetics in the house. I barely even notice the small cameras or sensors, despite the fact that I am happy with the function they provide. If anyone enters the perimeter of our property, a light flashes on and there is an alarm. I can watch real time video footage and I can see who has driven into the driveway or who is stepping onto our porch. I can even talk with them without ever opening the door! Now when I come home from work, I can be sure that the home is completely secure and I can even unlock the front door remotely.
