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


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.

Strengthen Your Security Camera System with Video Analytics


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.

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.

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.
