Home security is both the security hardware in place on a property as well as personal security practices. Security hardware includes doors, locks, alarm systems, lighting, motion detectors, security camera systems, etc. that are installed on a property; personal security involves practices such as ensuring doors are locked, alarms activated, windows closed, extra keys not hidden outside, etc.
Home automation gives you access to control devices in your home from a mobile device anywhere in the world. The term may be used for isolated programmable devices, like thermostats and sprinkler systems, but home automation more accurately describes homes in which nearly everything -- lights, appliances, electrical outlets, heating and cooling systems -- are hooked up to a remotely controllable network.
Surveillance cameras are video cameras used for the purpose of observing an area. They are often connected to a recording device or IP network, and may be watched by a security guard or law enforcement officer. Cameras and recording equipment used to be relatively expensive and required human personnel to monitor camera footage, but analysis of footage has been made easier by automated software that organizes digital video footage into a searchable database.
My name is Carla from NJ and I purchased the DIY Alarm system. As advertised i had the system up and running in a few minutes. All of the sensors come with the double stick tape making the installation super easy. The alarm panel just required power and an internet connection. The system and monitoring package are helping me sleep better. Thank you for your excellent customer service. Carla Fernandes
Home Automation in minutes? I did not fully believe it but I wanted to start updating my home and the price was very reasonable, so I decided to go for it. Happily the product setup has been a snap and the app is easy to navigate. I still need to add a few more things but so far it's working as advertised. Thanks John Di Ambrosio, NY
This was almost too easy! They weren't kidding when they said "just plug it in". This system is amazing!! Just plug one into your existing internet router or modem and then plop the others elsewhere in the house and within seconds the signal is great everywhere!! Wi-Fi calling.. streaming movies.. every device connected, without walking around looking for signal. AWESOME!!
My brother told me about these guys. He told me that they could handle the monitoring for my home even though they are in another state. The price was right so I called and within 20 minutes my account was setup. The alarm system arrived a few days later and without having to call in, I setup the system and my house is now being protected. Thanks for making this painless Rob in Ohio..
