If there is one area of the electronics industry that has come down in price over the years it is video security.
The fact is that just about anyone can easily afford this home upgrade and some insurance policies offer discounts for having a system. We can modulate a multiplexed security channel on your cable system that you can tune to anytime on any television when someone hears a noise outside. More advanced systems now record without the use of video tapes and camera views can be accessed from your laptop or internet capable cell phone. See who is at the door, check to see if the garage doors are closed or just keep an eye on the kids while you get some things done in the house. Video security is a deterrent to criminals and a convenience item at the same time.
