Home security systems can be simple or complex, with components that range from a basic door alarm to high-tech electronic security measures. One option that’s becoming extremely popular is video surveillance. This is because home security systems with video surveillance give you the ability to have your eyes on your property even when you’re not physically present.
You may be familiar with video surveillance because you’ve seen it used by businesses. However, video surveillance is the perfect addition to home security systems, too. When thieves know they’re being recorded, they know they’ll be more easily convicted, so it’s a huge deterrent to criminal activity. But deterring criminals isn’t the only benefit.
Monitronics Home Security offers HomeTouch® home security systems, which allow you to watch both live and recorded footage of your property from your computer, smartphone or tablet. You can use this surveillance capability to keep track of deliveries, see when your children leave for and return from school, and see who knocked on your door while you were at work. When motion is detected, you’ll receive a captured still image of your property, and you can even get text or email notifications of any activity. You can also access a library of recorded video, in case you need to go back and see what happened on an earlier date. With HomeTouch® home security systems, Monitronics customers can see what’s happening in their homes 24 hours a day.
HomeTouch® can also help you save energy. In addition to being able to see what’s going on in your home, you’ll be able to adjust your lights and thermostats from your smartphone. You can even use HomeTouch® to remotely control your home’s locks.
