  1. I agree with you about the cameras. Cameras are getting so handy and small, they become one of the most practical aspects of your home’s security. Especially with DVR technology, you don’t have to employ copious amounts of tapes to record everything, you can just reuse what you used before. Cameras are extremely important for any home I believe..

  2. SAFE Security (Home Alarm Service) – Shady business! They ADD extra charges and auto-renew contract w/o notice! Do your homework before signing agreement.

  3. You may also want to consider a freeze or temperature alarm system that can let you know if your home’s power or heating system fails. A LOT of water can leak from a previously frozen pipe, causing catastrophic damage/loss.

    A number of brands and models are available to fit almost any situation or budget. More expensive full-featured models include the HomeSaver and Sensaphone systems, while more budget-friendly models include the Freeze Alarm and Temperature Guard systems. Any of these models will be well worth the investment in the long run.
