doorbell cameraWith a Doorbell Camera You’ll Never Miss a Visitor!

When securing your home, consider a doorbell camera to notify you of people at your door when you are away. Aside from security, never miss an important moment at the front door. Whether you expecting a package while you’re at work or have singing carolers visiting in the evening, doorbell cameras will notify you on your smartphone or device of anyone who comes to your door. Here are some perks of installing a doorbell camera to your front door for added security and notifications.

With a two-way conversation and one-way video, you can talk to whoever is at the door and see who they are or what they may have. There is also a 180-degree wide-angle view of your doorstep. Smart detection will recognize people, so you will not be notified every time a car or animal crosses the front of your house. Doorbell cameras are also equipped with a day or night vision, ensuring 24/7 visual safety.

Custom notifications are also available to receive alerts. This includes a secure notifying alert, which will let you know when someone is at your doorstep, even before they ring your doorbell. You can see the expected and unexpected, securing your front door. While you’re eating dinner or expecting guests, know right away who has arrived as you are running around the house getting ready.

When the video is turned on due to person detection, recording is available with playback. This allows you to go back and see which neighbor left delicious holiday cookies or when unexpected visitors came.

Give the gift of security this year to your loved ones. Whether it’s for your parents or your kid’s new home, share the doorbell camera experience and comfort this holiday season.

Doorbell cameras bring an extra amount of security to your home, being able to monitor when you are away or who may be at your home late at night when you are sleeping. You can also converse with people who may be coming to your home to deliver a package or sell something when you are not at home. With all the features that are available to you on your smartphone, you will be sure to feel more secure about being away from your home.

Ensure your loved ones are protected with our home video camera systems. Contact us today for more information!

All 2G Towers Will Be Down by December 31, 2016

2G-sunset

In August 2012, AT&T announced that the shutdown of its second-generation (2G) wireless network will be complete by the end of 2016 and that on January 1, 2017, the 2G wireless network will cease to exist.

Why is AT&T shutting down the 2G network? Simply put, because data use on wireless networks is increasing as more and more people adopt smartphones. AT&T realizes that shutting down the old network and using that space for 3G and 4G networks will drastically increase data capacity and speed on the newer networks.

So how does this affect your alarm system? All wireless alarm systems communicate via cellular networks. Many wireless alarm systems were installed with a 2G compatible GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) device that can only communicate via the 2G wireless network. Therefore, when the network ceases to exist on January 1, 2017, these alarm systems will no longer be able to communicate alarm signals.

Protection Concepts continues to take a proactive approach to ensure all our affected customers are updated, but time is running out. Most customers have converted to 4G and will not experience any alarm communication issues. If you have not yet updated your system, please contact us immediately to discuss the next step in making sure your alarm system will be protected.

Protection Concepts is 100% committed to keeping you safe by keeping you informed. Contact Protection Concepts online or by calling 770 612-9073. Your protection is too important to wait.

Benefits of Wireless Home Security for Your Atlanta HomeBenefits of Wireless Home Security for Your Atlanta Home…When people ask me about the benefits of a wireless security system for their Atlanta homes, I usually reflect with them about the changes smart phones have brought to our daily lives.

We can now buy on line anywhere our smart phone operates. Home computer no longer rules our world. We can share pictures and texts with our friends on social media sites. When we want directions or a good place to eat, we use our smart phones. We have become a mobile society.  For some their smart phones are never more than 3 feet away, even when they sleep.

The technology that brought us the smart phones is the same technology behind the wireless home security systems. Using the wireless home security system you can get complete home security protection 24/7. You can install a variety of options like motion detectors, water and fire sensors, video cameras as well as windows and door sensors. With today’s wireless technology you can control your home’s lights, heat and cold, raise window blinds along with remote door locking.

At the heart of these options, is that control you have wherever you go. With all of these home security options, you control them from your smart phone or remote computer. You are always in charge.  You can be two places at once!

When you consider the hard wire home security alternative, the choice favors wireless. Hard wired systems involve messy installations with holes in your wall; they involve phone lines that can be cut by the bad guys to gain entrance to your home; they involve higher costs for hard wired home installations; and hard wired systems do not give you the ability to take your system with you if you should move.

Wireless home security systems have revolutionized the home security business just as the smart phones have revolutionized the way we live. Give us a call and let us explain how a wireless system can provide the home security you want for your family.
