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.

Buying a New Home? Consider a Home Technology Inspection

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

Worried About Package Theft? Here’s How Smart Technology Can Help

Let’s think about the current moment we live in, where so many of the things we used to go to the store are now being delivered to our homes.

Imagine that while you’re away from home, a delivery man approaches your front door. You’re notified by your security app, and you watch your Amazon package arrive through the front door camera, just as you were expecting. An hour later you are notified that someone else is approaching your home.

But wait—you weren’t expecting another delivery. That’s when you sound the alarm on your app, and the would-be thief of your package goes scurrying back to his car.

With a surveillance camera installation, our customers in La Cañada Flintridge have felt safe knowing that not only is their personal property is protected, but that they and their loved ones are also fully protected while home at night. But what can you expect in your system?
