Getting a new home is an exciting moment in anyone’s life. One of the best things about this change of property is the chance to fill it with some interesting and useful gadgets. There certainly isn’t a shortage of fun devices around now but what about the security of the place? Can it be fun as well?

Fun isn’t normally a word we associate with burglar alarms or CCTV cameras but the latest technology in the industry lets us protect our families and our possessions in a more interesting way than ever before.

View your Home
When you are far from your house wouldn’t it be great to be able to see it? This might sound impossible but it is an increasingly popular approach. This can be achieved by first of all getting a digital CCTV monitoring system put in place. CCTV cameras are, of course, great burglar deterrents. However, in this case there is an additional benefit to be had as well. You will be given details of a website and a code. You can then enter there from anywhere in the world and see the current situation at your property.

This advance means that your alarm system will now be wireless and the signals will be sent out over broadband. This provides a much more secure method of protecting your home and offers other advantages such as providing an alarm network which is easily set up and can be increased as your needs change.

How to Detect Intruders?
The alarm systems might all look pretty similar but the truth is that they all work in vastly different ways. There are many different methods of detecting intruders using the latest technology. Some use photo-electric beams while other incorporate passive infrared detectors or microwave detectors. It is interesting to study how easy of these works but the main point to bear in mind is that you need to choose the right one for your property and circumstances.  

Smart Keypads
The part of the burglar alarm system you are going to use most is the keypad. These are now as attractive and as user friendly as any other gadgets you might have around the house. Having said that, the most important thing is that they let you set it up accurately and control it. They are now being produced with the likes of voice control and in some cases they can be integrated with the rest of the house to give you smart control of functions such as your lighting and visitor welcoming.
