How Many Security Cameras Do I Need? A Guide for Tennessee Homes

SYMSPI_SeptemberBlog1_HomeSecurityCompany_MurfreesboroTN-

Minimize Blind Spots & Keep Your Property Protected

With today’s smart technology, more homeowners are realizing they can take their security beyond alarms at the front entrance. Surveillance cameras are an increasingly popular residential installation, and as a home security company, we frequently receive these requests.

But if you want to ensure your Murfreesboro, TN home is protected, you’ll need more than a single video doorbell. For instance, what if someone tries to enter your house through the backyard? Or sneak in from the side? You won’t be able to catch that from the front door camera, and by the time they’re at the entrance or window, it may be too late to take action.

We work with homeowners and businesses across Middle Tennessee to safeguard their properties with remote access and monitoring. If you’re considering a new surveillance system, follow our guidelines below to find exactly what you need.

The Beginner’s Guide to Alarm Monitoring Services

the-beginners-guide-to-alarm-monitoring-Services

Is Professional Alarm Monitoring Right for Your Home? 

When mobile alerts were first introduced to security technology, it was a complete game-changer. Surveillance footage was no longer used only as evidence to provide to the authorities or insurance claims. Now, incidents could be caught in real-time, preventing theft, damage, and loss.

With smart notifications, if unusual activity is detected on your property—like a stranger lingering in the driveway after dark or a leak in the basement—your phone will be instantly notified with a message. From there, you can open your security app and view a live video feed, then assess the situation. 

But what if you miss the notification? The incident will go unnoticed, and by the time you see the alert, it’s too late to prevent any damage. And what if you need to focus on work at the office, and can’t be checking your phone every time it vibrates? 

That’s where alarm monitoring services come in. Professional services handle the monitoring for you, so whether you’re away on vacation or at work, you can focus on your day without worrying about what’s going on at home.

We frequently cover tips and advice on alarm monitoring services in our home security blog. To learn more about security monitoring for your Murfreesboro, TN home, read our handy guide and expand on each topic below!

Home Security Systems: Full-Service vs. DIY Installations

home-security-systems-full-service-vs-diy-installations

Getting Started with Home Security? Here’s What You Need to Consider

After a long day, the last thing anyone wants or expects is to see their front door kicked in and the house burglarized. You might think, ‘We live in a nice neighborhood,’ or ‘That wouldn’t happen here.’ But according to the Department of Justice, around 1.7 million burglaries occur every year in the US, and 51 percent of home robberies are repeated within six weeks.

When people’s homes are broken into or vandalized, it’s not just that valuables are stolen. It’s the sense of security that’s lost and very challenging to regain.

Whether you’ve experienced a break-in or not, it’s always a wise decision to protect your property with a security and surveillance system. Not only will you prevent and catch intruders, but you’ll also keep your eye on the kids, pets, mail deliveries, and be notified of any water or gas leaks.

But how does one install a home security system? Should you do it yourself or hire a home security company? We share the pros and cons of each below so you can make the best decision for your Murfreesboro, TN home.

Strengthen Your Security Camera System with Video Analytics

SYMSPI_JuneBlog1_SmartSecurityCameraSystem_NashvilleTN-

Discover How Video Analytics Work & How to Get Started

Typically, when security cameras detect activity, they send a notification to your phone right away. That’s convenient—until it’s pinging you several times a day about the cat walking on the porch or a car driving by on the street. 

Too many alerts might lead you to ignore or mute notifications altogether. But then you run the risk of missing an important alert. So how can homeowners use their smart security camera system to stay safe—without going crazy? Two words: video analytics.

With video analytic software incorporated in your smart cameras, you’ll cut back on false alarms and will only be notified about activity that matters. Whether you’re protecting one home or several properties, Alarm.com makes it easier to manage notifications through video analytics. We’ll share how intelligent cameras work and your options for your Nashville, TN home below.

What Does Video Analytics Do?

Video analytic software lets your system notify you about certain camera events while ignoring less important activities. Alarm.com’s video analytics are highly customizable and recognize the difference between people, animals, and vehicles. Video analytics make it easier to search through footage, too, if you need to find evidence later on.

What Architects & Designers Need to Know About Smart Security

Give Your Clients the Technology They Really Want

“Security is not an add-on; rather it’s thinking holistically about a building site or concept,” says Patrick Gilbert, AIA, a senior architect with Gresham, Smith, and Partners.

If you’re an architect or designer in the Lebanon, TN area, it’s time to start thinking about security. While many homeowners will install smart technology after they’ve moved in, the best move is to install a security system before construction is complete. For the forward-thinking client, a new home build should already include planning and wiring for home automation.

As a home security company based in Middle Tennessee, we’ll share why it’s valuable to include a security camera installation into your design plans and how we can be of service to your future design projects.
