Locks, Cameras, & Intercoms: Getting Started with Access Control

Manage Who Comes & Goes from Your California Residence

Locks, Cameras, & Intercoms: Getting Started with Access Control

Are you thinking about adding a security system to your Pasadena, CA home? You aren’t alone. 34 percent of U.S. households—or approximately 36 million homes—currently own a home security system, according to Parks Associates. And that number is predicted only to keep growing. 

But if you’re worried about trespassers on your property, you’ll need more than a few security cameras. With a complete access control system, visitors will be stopped at your gate or front door and prompted to enter a code. Motion sensors will notify you that someone’s there so that you can speak to them through the two-way intercom. If they aren’t welcome, you can call the necessary authorities. 

However, a DIY access control setup can only take you so far. With a professional smart security system installation, all your security devices work together to achieve one common goal: safety. Here’s what a professionally installed system can achieve that a single smart device can’t do alone.

Enjoy High-End Audio Outdoors—Without Disturbing the Neighbors

Invite Friends Over, Press “Play,” and Make the Most of Your Outdoor Spaces

Enjoy High-End Audio Outdoors—Without Disturbing the Neighbors

As more people begin hosting parties and get-togethers again, now is the perfect time to spruce up your backyard spaces with outdoor entertainment. 

But when it comes to outdoor audio and video, there’s always one factor to consider: the neighbors. No one likes being forced to listen to next door’s music and booming bass notes. Noise pollution is a very real thing, and even if your Altadena, CA backyard is spacious and private, sound can carry far distances. 

But the weather is beautiful here in sunny Southern California, and it’s only natural to want to enjoy your favorite playlists and movies by the plants and poolside. At Personal Technology, we install residential outdoor sound systems and weatherproof TVs that not only look and sound high-quality but won’t cause the neighbors to file a noise complaint either. Read on to find out how.

Buying a New Home? Consider a Home Technology Inspection

Home inspections typically focus on the foundation, structure, plumbing, and electrical elements of a building.
