Some systems store recorded video locally on an SD card or a solid state drive, while others offer cloud storage. Locally stored video is a good choice for do it yourselfers on a budget, but you have to be careful not to overwrite video you may need later. Cloud storage makes it easy to store and access recorded video, but it can cost hundreds of dollars per year depending on your subscription. Some systems offer both cloud storage and local storage, and some provide a dedicated storage drive that gives you DVR capabilities with time lapse recording, which makes it easy to find a video event that took place at a specific point in time. All of the systems we've tested feature an app that lets you use your smartphone as your command center to arm and disarm the system, create rules, add and delete components, and receive push notifications when alarms are triggered. Most apps also allow you to do things like view live and recorded video, lock and unlock doors, change thermostat settings, and silence alarms.

security alarms for homes

Below is a security check list which may assist you as you take on this important task. It is OK to take an “Us against Them” attitude when it comes to home security and your personal safety because home security really does matter. Examine your front and back door locks and make sure they are properly working. The doors are a burglar’s most common means of entry. Know that a steel or solid core door, not a hollow core door, is more resistant to forced entry. Replace a push button knob lock with a deadbolt lock to add more resistance. Many homes have double hung windows which can be “pinned” by installing a pin in the lower window sash. Keep your garage door closed when the garage is unattended. An open garage door is an open invitation for any thief. Illuminate the exterior entrances to your home. No burglar wants to be visible as they walk around a home.
