When most of us think about home surveillance systems, we visualize stopping intruders and burglaries to protect our homes and families. The sign in the yard and the decal on the window tells any possible trespasser your home is armed and protected. But security systems do many more safety-related tasks than simply serving as a barricade to intruders.
For example, if you’re away and a fire breaks out, your home surveillance system recognizes the problem and alerts the authorities immediately. Without the system, the fire could progress much longer and do more damage before anyone sees it and makes an emergency phone call. Similarly, flooding in your basement can be detected by your home surveillance system and alert you to the problem. Certainly flooding in the Houston area can definitely be an issue.
Many seniors today live in homes with their elder children and are at home during the day when the children are away at work. Being able to check-in on seniors staying with you provides a great relief just knowing they are active and safe. The same is true if younger children are home. It may be that you have babysitters and you want to check-in on how things are going. This can be easily accomplished with the home surveillance system cameras and video monitoring along with access via your smart phone or tablet, and you can access your home surveillance system from virtually anywhere.
Not only do home surveillance systems help monitor for dangers in addition to discouraging intruders, but they can also help monitor levels of carbon monoxide as well as smoke from a fire. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can cause suffocation. It is particularly dangerous because it cannot be detected by an individual until it’s too late.
