I live alone.
I’m very aware of the rising crime rate in our local area… I often hear sirens in the middle of the night.
So I considered getting myself a guard dog but don’t absolutely have the time to correctly care for a pet. I work too many hours so when I get home at night I just want to eat dinner plus relax. I don’t want to feed, walk, or play with a messy old dog. I don’t want to deal with fur all over my furniture, either. I decided to invest into a security system for the house and so I spent the money for a top-of-the-line system in order to take advantage of the latest technology. Since the entire security system is wireless, the installation process was really quick plus non-invasive. There was no need to tear holes into the walls, and most of the components are extremely compact plus non-obtrusive. They don’t detract from the aesthetics of my house. I barely even notice the small cameras or the sensors, despite the fact that they offer great function! Now, if anyone enters the perimeter of our property, a light flashes and the alarm alerts me. I can watch real time video footage of the property on my smartphone. I can also see who has driven into the driveway or who is stepping onto our porch. I can even talk with them before I open the door. Now when I get back home from work, I’m sure that the lake house is completely secure. I can also unlock the front door remotely and switch on lights.
