Conduct Home Checklist to Determine the Size and Features You Need


The first step to choosing the right security system for your home is to conduct an inspection of the interior and exterior of your home.

  1. Take a notepad and draw a rough sketch of your home and property.
  2. Walk around the exterior of your home, making notes of the number of doors and windows. Be sure to note any other entrances such as crawl spaces or garage doors. During this exterior inspection, it’s important to highlight any areas that would be particularly vulnerable for a person to enter such as a window behind a bush. Be sure to note any doors or windows that are loose or missing locks.
  3. Walk through the interior of your home making notes of interior doors or windows. Be sure to note any other areas that may be vulnerable for a person to enter your home. While conducting your interior inspection, be sure to note any windows that may be loose or missing window locks.
  4. Congratulations, you have finished your home security checklist, lets now look at the quality of your home security system.

Choosing A Quality Security System Camera For Your Home

When considering a new security system for your home, it’s important to choose a high-quality security system as you or your family’s life may depend on it. The quality of the camera is one area you do not want to sacrifice on. We recommend choosing an IP camera as an IP camera allows you to monitor your home with real-time streaming video. An IP camera also gives you the ability to schedule recording times, so you don’t record at unneeded times of the day. This camera also has a motion detection feature that can pick up movement within the monitored space. They are often more durable and able to sustain bad weather and harsh environmental conditions.

When Choosing A Camera, Here Are Some Features To Consider:

*the camera should be from a reputable company
*the camera should be built from quality workmanship and materials
*the camera should have at least
*do you want to access the camera with your phone, tablet or other media devices?
*do you want the camera to perform in low light conditions? if so, you would need an infrared camera
*do you want the camera to have a 2-way audio capability?
*do you want it to pan-tilt zoom?
