Have you ever wanted to see outside your home without having to go outside? What about video evidence of someone breaking into your home or your car? Maybe you live in a fairly low-crime area and just want to see who is outside your door (e.g. salesmen) without having to answer it. There could be many different reasons that you might want a video surveillance system installed. Here is a picture of a security camera that I recently installed:
In addition to the camera, a DVR was also installed which allows for up to 8 cameras to be connected and recorded 24 hours a day. The DVR also provides remote access via web browswer (e.g. Internet Explorer or Firefox) as well as via application on a smart device. So, whether you are at work or on vacation you can always see what’s going on at your home:

Again, this is not as important with keyless entry systems, but this is paramount with alarm systems so a thief cannot easily locate the alarm wiring and disable the alarm system. However, for consistency and quality reasons, this process is done with all alarms, keyless entry, and remote start systems.
I’ve been pretty busy lately and have spent any free time I’ve had to some of my own projects rather than providing updates here. Nonetheless, one of the major things that I’ve realized that I’ve left off of the website is automotive security systems. I’ve been installing security systems since I started the business. Unfortunately, security isn’t glamorous and the systems aren’t meant to be seen which makes it difficult to capture pictures presenting an installed system. Having said that, I’ve realized that I do need to add an additional page to the products section which also includes security systems. Realize that this isn’t specifically limited to security systems in the sense of theft, but it also includes keyless entry and/or remote start systems as well. Continue reading
