HOME SECURITY SYSTEM OPTIONS
There is certainly no shortage of home security options or the price points in each category. Whats the difference between a $1000 camera and a $25k camera system? Mostly your peace of mind. Many of these solutions are (unfortunately) offered and accepted on price. This becomes frustrating when an incident does occur and the video capture is poor or the entire episode could have been prevented. We are here to help you understand home security and how to become less vulnerable. ATTYWON also helps you plans if something should go wrong. Does your family have an evacuation plan? meet up location? A precise plan for elderly, disabled or even Pet responsibility? Do your neighbors know you well enough to identify friends visiting or a stranger lurking around? We can help you make sure your well protected and well prepared for any emergencies.
Security starts at the perimeter of your property and deploying a simple motion light can startle and deter a would be robber. The flood light should be properly aimed, other wise your only glaring your neighbors from seeing an intruder. Exterior lights help your neighbors see something suspicions. So our first suggestion is flood lights with motion sensors and get to know your neighbors well enough so they no who is friendly or foe before they call you. Attywon offers Ring, Flood lights that also have a built in security camera or we can design a complete landscape lighting schedule with full feature security cameras. Both solutions have their unique benefits that we can help you understand better.
Our next suggestion for solid home security is a video doorbell such as a Savant or Ring Video Doorbell. We can also suggest a few other smart home systems like the Savant intercom system for a more streamlined experience or a hi-end security camera that integrated with your home automation platform and mobile phone. the goal is to let you know who is at your door and talk to them if need be, at all time from anywhere in the world. Amazon claimed a Los Angeles Police department pilot program in 2015 had found that video doorbells had reduced burglaries in neighborhoods “by as much as 55%.” ... “It taught us that Ring actually protects the homes around it, as much as it protects the home.” Some of these solutions offer a "neighborhood Watch" platform that enables you to see alerts your neighbors put out about suspicious activities.

Most of our cameras feature "night-vision" so you can see what's happening even total darkness.
The home security solutions above will most likely deter a majority of armature break-ins but what if we needed a little more peace of mind? If an intruder is not intimidated the next layer are contact sensors. Each and every window, door or other entry point of your home is outfitted with a contact sensors. When the door or window is open a signal is sent to your alarm panel alerting you and the authorities. These sensors can be wireless but we know wired sensors don't rely on batteries and are far superior to wireless. This is recommended when pre-wiring your Long Island home. Wired sensors are also extremely tiny, not disruptive to your interior design or easily identified by strangers.
Advanced home security systems are designed with motion sensors. They also come in wireless / battery or hard wired. We always suggest wire for everything that can accept a hard wire, especially for security and networking. There are also different technologies on how motion sensors work. The most common type is an "active" motion sensor which uses ultrasonic technology; these motion sensors emit sound waves to detect the presence of objects (similar to bats). The second most widely used type of motion sensor is called "passive" in home security systems. A PIR sensor is designed to detect the infrared radiation emitted naturally from a human body. Large pets can be an issue if these are not installed correctly.
GLASS BREAK SENSOR
Mostly used in commercial application, glass-break sensors are included in many high end homes.
These sensors will detect if a pane of glass is shattered or broken. They are equipped with a tuned microphone, which monitors for frequencies typical of glass shattering, and react to those sounds above certain threshold. Glass break sensors are available in wired or wireless applications and can be applied to the window directly or placed in the room for multiple window coverage.
LIVE MONITORING 24/7
This is what really decides which type security system you decide on. When you choose to go with the big names like Google Nest, Ring, Arlo and others, each device will have an individual monthly fee. You will need to pay around $10 per month to monitor the video doorbell, and additional fees fee for each home security device. You can eliminate these fees by choosing a security system with a DVR (digital video recorder) or NVR (network video recorder). The upfront cost is more but gives an entirely different experience with plenty more features. These systems are also monitored by a live operator who can deploy emergency services in case of a fire of burglary.
SMART HOME SECURITY
Smart Home Security Integration
Integrating your smart home or home automation system with your home security system drastically improves functionality and effectiveness. When an ordinary security system is compromised an external audible alarm sounds and a call is automatically placed to your monitoring station for assistance. Home automation takes these signals a few steps further by:
Turning on all lights inside your home
Flash all exterior lights to help police locate your home.
Raise all shades so law enforcement can see in
Locks all keypads so the intruder can't manipulate the scene.
With a properly designed home security and home automation system you will only need one app for your mobile phone. Combining some of the security devices discussed above you may have to use three or four mobile apps.

CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR
With a known name like "the silent killer" carbon monoxide is a serious threat but easily monitored.mwith technology. Because it is a odorless, tasteless, colorless it is undetectable to humans. The poison gas is a by product from the incomplete burning of gasoline, wood, coal, propane, natural gas or oil . Without proper ventilation, the gas will build up to deadly levels. Were you aware something as little as a chainsaw can emit enough fumes to make you sick?
WATER LEAK DETECTOR
If you have ever experienced a pipe bursting or a washer machine fail, you understand the frustration of water damage. Most home owners are unaware of water leak detectors and how inexpensive they are. We suggest placing one in every bathroom, laundry room and areas that have water sources like a wet bar or slop sink. There are also automated shut-offs for the main water pipe coming into your home. The smart home security system receives a signal of a massive drop in pressure or a signal from one of your water leak detectors and turns off the water.
