Security Cameras

Not only do security cameras serve as a deterrent to thieves looking to commit a quick crime without detection, but they’re a primary line of defense for home security. Artificial intelligence is smart enough to understand the difference between a loose animal and a person walking across your yard. Advanced features like license plate recognition, vehicle detection, thermal detection, and facial recognition can protect your property in brand-new ways that older security cameras could never offer. Key camera installation locations include at door entries and exits, along the perimeter of your home, at windows, along your driveway or gate entrance, and by sheds and garages. 

Instant Notifications

When your surveillance cameras detect an incident, person, or other disturbance, you’ll receive a notification via your preferred communication method. Choose from text messages, push notifications, phone calls, or a combination of all three for immediate notice of actions happening on your Wyoming property. With just a tap of a finger, you’ll be able to view live video footage on your smart device to see the incident in real time! 

Beyond Cameras

Security cameras outfitted with the features listed above, plus motion detectors, glass breakage sensors, video doorbell cameras, smart locks, and sensors along your property perimeter, can all inform your home security system of a disturbance. Inside your home, you can add climate control detection for humidors and wine cellars and leak detectors on the main water line or by the water heater and washing machine. Not only are you protecting your loved ones from harm, but you’ll be able to respond quickly to home emergencies and limit potential damages.

Smart Home Integration

A well-protected home goes beyond traditional home security system measures. You can incorporate your smart home devices and automation system into your home security plan for ultimate protection. If a break-in happens in the dead of night, your entire home will respond. Lights throughout the house turn on in an instant, improving your sight, startling the burglar, and letting law enforcement response teams find your home quicker! When you’re away from home, set your alarm system to Away so shades lower for additional privacy, and lights turn on and off as if you were at home to deter potential thieves.

Data Protection

With on-site surveillance storage, there is no third-party access to your private footage. Plus, with your self-monitored system, there are no additional or recurring fees. Once your home security system is in place, you’re set to protect your property and have peace of mind.
