5 Simple Ways to Make Your Home Safer in 2020

Posted on January 13th, 2020 by Alert Protective

Start off this New Year with a brighter vision for home safety. As the New Year begins, make sure your resolution includes keeping your home safe and secure for you and your family using the latest technology. Our ultimate goal is to bring you the peace of mind you deserve whether you’re at home, away at work or on vacation. Down below are 5 simple yet effective ways to make your home secure and protected for 2020.

5 Simple Ways to Make Your Home Safer in 2020

1. Install a Home Alarm System

It’s crucial to install some form of home security or home alarm system. Statistics show that a homeowner is more likely to be targeted by an intruder when there aren’t any signs or presence of an alarm system regardless of whether members are inside your home or not.

Home alarm systems are more than just signaling when there are definite signs of a burglar or intruder. Alert Protective Services offers home alarm systems with heat detectors as well as smoke alarms. With a great system in place, you can simply open your tablet, smartphone, or computer to view your home’s current activity and temperature.

We understand how valuable your home and safety are along with the items inside of it. Burglars are increasingly getting smarter and may do just about anything to take your valuable possessions. You can deter these intruders away once they see your home alarm system or take action and signal authorities when something does happen.

2. Consider Smart Home Automation

As we roll into the new year, ensure that you are using smart home technology. When it comes to Smart Home Automation, you have the power of unlocking a variety of automation hardware. Whether you are on the go using an app on your phone, away on vacation or at work using your laptop, tablet or computer, you can keep an eye on your home at all times and have control.

Alert Protective Services offers remote video monitoring, video doorbells, smart thermostats, smart locks, and lighting control. Whether you are looking to view your home’s activity live, see who’s at your door, change the temperature of a room, or turn the lights on to let intruders know you’re home; you can easily do so with a push of a button on most devices such as your smartphone.

3. Alarm Monitoring Protection

With big goals set in stone for 2020, sit back and relax when it comes to your home safety. Alarm monitoring allows for trusted professional monitoring of your home at all times. Alarm monitoring is something to consider because it not only protects you from intruders, but from events that can happen inside your home such as a house fire, temperature changes, or a natural disaster.

Alert Protective Services offers professional monitoring which keeps your home on high alert 24/7. We offer affordable rates and can work with almost any monitoring equipment you have already installed. Lastly, we use the most advanced monitoring equipment.

4. Choosing the right Video Surveillance Equipment

Stay connected and safe, but not just with any video surveillance system. Choose the best video surveillance brands using the latest video surveillance technology today. With tons of video surveillance brands and services out there, let us help you choose the right one and understanding the cons when investing in a low-quality video camera system.

Here at Alert Protective, we go above and beyond with our home security cameras. Our video surveillance technology includes wireless outdoor cameras that connect using Wi-Fi and battery power that last years. Additionally, we offer high technology indoor cameras so you can get a crystal-clear image of the entire room, motion detection, and night vision as well! We also install video doorbells so that you can view who’s at your door and even speak with them directly. Lastly, our top video surveillance brands include Alarm.com, Honeywell, Hikvision, EEN, Brivo and more.

When you choose a video surveillance system that is of low quality with limited abilities, you end up spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars for an unprotected home. Low-resolution cameras can make it difficult to see who poses as a threat, what they are doing, and ultimately makes it difficult on identifying the suspect. A low-quality surveillance system might also be eating up your electricity in the long run.
