With the Ultimate Service Plan for monitoring, you can connect indoor and outdoor cameras to your security system and you can automate all your equipment for a truly smart home. Frontpoint offers indoor and outdoor cameras that record videos in 1080p full HD with infrared night vision, which means that these cameras will catch anything at night almost as clearly as they would in the daylight. You can also connect a doorbell camera that uses motion sensors to alert you every time someone approaches your door. All the cameras have built in motion detectors, and any time one is triggered, Frontpoint alerts you to the activity. With the Frontpoint mobile app, you can automate your cameras, your home lighting, your thermostat, and even the locks to your home. The automation features from Vivint are second to none.

Some systems store recorded video locally on an SD card or a solid state drive, while others offer cloud storage. Locally stored video is a good choice for do it yourselfers on a budget, but you have to be careful not to overwrite video you may need later. Cloud storage makes it easy to store and access recorded video, but it can cost hundreds of dollars per year depending on your subscription. Some systems offer both cloud storage and local storage, and some provide a dedicated storage drive that gives you DVR capabilities with time lapse recording, which makes it easy to find a video event that took place at a specific point in time. All of the systems we've tested feature an app that lets you use your smartphone as your command center to arm and disarm the system, create rules, add and delete components, and receive push notifications when alarms are triggered. Most apps also allow you to do things like view live and recorded video, lock and unlock doors, change thermostat settings, and silence alarms. Some apps will even use your phone's location services to automatically arm and disarm the system according to your physical location. The more expensive systems usually come with a wall mounted panel that acts as a communications hub, with a touch screen display that allows you to do everything the app does. The display lets you communicate with a professional monitoring service when an alarm is triggered and view video from any of the installed security cameras. While many systems use wireless components that are installed using double sided tape, some high end systems use components that require professional installation. These soup to nuts systems typically cost considerably more than DIY systems and offer 24/7 professional monitoring, but you may have to enter into a multi year contract and pay a hefty termination fee if you break it.

It will charge by sunlight during the sunshine and illuminate those dark spots at dusk without you needing to switch on the light or use a timer. This is another simple method to make your home less vulnerable to the local burglars. Remember Burglars Dislike LightsBurglars thrive in dark secluded locations.
