With the expansion of the “Internet of Things” aka IoT, we’re getting lots of requests for security systems from clients. The price has come way down and we recommend them to everyone.
This article has a good explanation of why it’s important for your business to have a security system, but this applies to many residential clients.
One thing the article mentions is you might get a reduction in your insurance if you get one of these camera systems. Considering many are less than $100, that’s a very quick return on investment.
Some of the systems we’ve set up for clients are
- Canary and other internet camera by companies like TP-Link
- Intelligent assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home
- Nest and Ecobee thermostats
- Ring doorbell (very cool)
- Swan security systems
If you set these up yourself, please keep up to date with security fixes and always change the default usernames and passwords. These devices can get hacked really easily if you just “set it and forget it.”
Not sure if these systems are right for you? Just give Dave a call for a free consultations. We’ve set these up for clients all over Lawrence, Kansas City, and Topeka.
