We are coming to the end of summer and it is time to start thinking about securing your vacation home. Your only options used to be the door locks, local alarm, and perhaps leaving a few lights on. This has all changed with the introduction of low cost digital surveillance systems. Now you can monitor your vacation home from your personal computer or smart phone. You can remotely check the rooms, make sure the water is not leaking, have a text/email message sent to you if there is a break in… or simply watch your home as if you were living there full time.
Not only can you gain peace of mind with a digital surveillance system, but due to new wireless options the latest generation of systems are easy and quick to install.
Here are a few recommendations of how to setup your new digital surveillance system:
1. Place inside security cameras near doors and windows
2. If you have valuables, monitor them with a fixed security camera
3. Place an all weather security camera outside the house near the doors and garage
