Stay Safe and Secure in Your Home

It is only normal that we put our home safety and defense as priority in our life - protecting your family and home always come first. With our lives getting busier each day, it is almost impossible to feel secure if you don't feel safe in your own home. Security and protection are the best ways to be in charge and in control of your home safety. Here are some simple tips to make you feel safe anytime either day or night:

Electronic Surveillance System / CCTV (Closed-Circuit Television)

You probably have heard many people talking about it, because more and more Australian homes are installing electronic surveillance system or CCTV - Brisbane homes included. Purchasing and installing a good surveillance system is one of the best way to safeguard your home. Security camera systems these days come with innovative technology and can be placed strategically inside, outside or around your home, effectively capturing everything to monitor your property. Not just that, CCTV cameras and electronic surveillance systems have an extensive variety that will fit into your own ideal of security requirements. Before installing these though, make sure your home's wiring can cater for the additional electrical needs as some old homes have outdated electrical wiring which can’t support modern electrical needs.

Home Alarms and Motion Sensor 

Home alarms are also vital to home safety. These days, it is easy, simple and inexpenisve to have your own alarm security system at home. Home alarms are effective and coupled with CCTV cameras, it will give you a sense of security as well as peace of mind. Much like the CCTV system, there is a full home alarm system that you can install which comes complete with video and remote access features. You can also keep an eye on different sides of your house from a distant location.

For the old school, another option is to go for the traditional alarm system that comes with automatic door locks and motion detectors to warn you of intruders. They are easy to set up, and once the security system is tripped, you will be alerted instantaneously as the alarm is triggered. Addition of motion sensors also add another layer of security. Motion sensors are used to detect movement within a set target radius, and you can link them to either motion sensor light or an alarm system. It is advisable to locate them at areas that are normally not well-lit. You can also set the motion sensors to exclude minor movements such as pets coming inside and outside the house to prevent false alarm.
