They may be small, they may be dis­crete but they are pow­er­ful objects.  Alarms and secu­ri­ty cam­eras not only pro­tect our home and loved ones at any time of the day, but now allow us full video access and con­trol of our house, giv­ing home­own­ers the ulti­mate con­trol.  These “smart alarms” are more pow­er­ful than before. Home own­ers usu­al­ly con­tem­plate whether or not to install an alarm sys­tem or secu­ri­ty cam­eras as they don’t real­ly know the val­ue it would bring to their home.  Can’t think or a rea­son why to install an alarm sys­tem?  Here’s one: it’s the best deter­rent to stop a bur­glar from enter­ing your house.  There is no guar­an­tee that a home alarm sys­tem will pre­vent a bur­glar from enter­ing your house but it will make them think twice before doing so.  If they do choose to enter your house, an alarm sys­tem can get them to flee quick­er and steal a lot less.  That’s because once the alarm is trig­gered, the police are imme­di­ate­ly informed and dis­patched to your house and the crim­i­nal will flee with the fear of get­ting caught.  Some­times, a sim­ple lawn sign or win­dow stick­er is enough to deter the bur­glar from enter­ing your house right from the start, as they feel the risk of get­ting caught is If you’re look­ing for an alarm sys­tem to install, there are a vari­ety of options for con­sumers to choose from.   From a wire­less sys­tem to a hard­wire sys­tem, any of these options are avail­able to suit your lifestyle needs.  A wire­less sys­tem pro­vides the secu­ri­ty and porta­bil­i­ty of an alarm sys­tem, with­out the wires.  Once the con­troller is con­nect­ed to a pow­er source, all addi­tion­al devices, like motion detec­tors, will become wire­less and pow­ered by lithi­um for a long time.  A hard­wire sys­tem con­nects to your house via wires and pro­vides small­er bat­tery free devices for your home or busi­ness.  There’s also the option of a hybrid; a com­bi­na­tion of the wire­less and hard­wire.   Use the hard­wire devices for unfin­ished spaces and the wire­less sys­tem for places where wires are hard to reach.  What­ev­er your lifestyle, there is a home alarm pack­age that will meet your needs. Fur­ther­more, those who do not want to use an alarm sys­tem can opt for anoth­er viable option; secu­ri­ty cam­eras.  They are easy to use and come in many sizes, from large vis­i­ble cam­eras to small­er dis­crete ones.  You can place them any­where, from the front door to the win­dow seals to prac­ti­cal­ly every room in the house.  What’s more is that with today’s tech­nol­o­gy, a home­own­er can eas­i­ly con­trol their secu­ri­ty cam­eras and access them from any­where they are.  This allows for a home­own­er to check up on their house and if they spot a stranger, they can imme­di­ate­ly call police.  This puts the home­own­ers in full con­trol.  Also, secu­ri­ty cam­eras are now more effec­tive and effi­cient than in the past.  Home­own­ers now have an option of the size of the cam­era they wish and oth­er spe­cial fea­tures such as weath­er and dam­age proof cam­eras, allow­ing for a longer lifes­pan. What­ev­er the choice may be, alarm sys­tems and secu­ri­ty cam­eras are great invest­ments to make not only in your res­i­den­tial prop­er­ty but also in your com­mer­cial prop­er­ty (if you have one).  Bur­glars and crim­i­nals tar­get any­one and any­where so pro­tect­ing your home and busi­ness is the best way to pre­vent future dam­ages and loss­es.  Start now with a home mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem from PROTECTION PLUS ®.  A sim­ple call will get you the right sys­tem to suit your lifestyle and pro­vide you with the peace of mind.
