Crucial Components of an Advanced Home Security System

Posted on October 5th, 2011 by Alert Protective

If you feel like a standard monitored or unmonitored home security system is not enough for you and your family, then it’s time to explore the other great options that exist to create a more advanced home security system. In this post, we’ll discuss a few great, advanced security tools that can help you keep your home and family safe!

Surveillance Systems

Surveillance systems are growing in popularity every year. Standard security systems only notify you when someone is entering your home unexpectedly. But, with a surveillance system, you can see intruders before they are even in your home! In addition to added security, you can also use your surveillance system to watch your kids as they play around the house or in the yard. Adding a DVR system or computer server to you surveillance system will give you the ability to record video footage of your house.

Intercom Systems

Many people are also turning to intercom systems to provide added security when answering doors or speaking to people around the home. Many people are surprised to learn that intercom systems are not just for audio anymore.  In fact, many intercom systems have integrated video capabilities so you can see who is on the other side of your door. These systems work great in tandem with a surveillance system.
