Home Security System
You can install a Lowe's home security system yourself or have a professional install the desired security equipment.
You need to decide what features the system should have:
1. Should it be hardwired or wireless?
2. What kind of sensors will be on the doors and windows?
3. Will there be sensors in the rooms?
4. Should there be exterior cameras?
Use door and window sensors to alert you, when a door or window is opened. This will let you know if children leave the house.
In the living room use a device that turns lights on and off at certain times when nobody is in the house. This might keep burglars away. Connect all lights in the living room and kitchen to a controller that you can keep at your bedside. This allows you to turn on all lights with one push button.
If you have a basement, let a monitor alert you, when there is a plumbing leak.
On the outside install a camera that will show the front door, so you can see who is at the door. Put outdoor lights on a timer or install lights that will turn on if there is motion.
For more advanced systems you might want to consider a home security service company.
