Security systems are a long-term investment that will keep you, your family, your business, and your employees safe for years to come. If you already have a security system, you may have heard about the advantages of modern security systems. Existing systems, while still providing a good service, may serve you better once they’ve been updated.
How Digital Technology Has Improved Home and Business Security Systems
Here’s why so many people prefer an upgraded system:
- New Technology. Older security technology operated on analog systems, such as a standard phone, which reduced the effectiveness of many security systems. Now, digital technology has enabled us to leap forward, using remote controls, motion activation, and internet viewing capabilities with real-time delivery, high-def video, and unrestricted storage.
- Better Monitoring. Your security system can now be remotely connected, meaning that you can monitor your home or business using your computer, your tablet, or your smart phone. If you have video surveillance, you can keep an eye on your residence or company, reduce employee theft, monitor hazardous areas, and remotely access alarm activity.
- More Control and Convenience. You can now keep an eye on your home and business while you’re not physically there. Remote access, also called access control, has especially changed the way that many people conduct their business. You can manage doors, locks, and gates remotely from your mobile device. If a delivery man requires access while you’re at lunch, you can simply use a phone or tablet to let them in, and then lock the door again on their way out. Using card readers, access card, photo ID system, and intercom systems doesn’t require you to be there. It’s easy to restrict access and control your building’s security, even when you’re not in the same state. You don’t have to be at your home or business to know that it’s safe.
- Reasonable Cost. As technology has improved, it’s become less expensive. Many homeowners can now get a basic safety and alarm security system for less than $50 a month with a contract.
