Cozy At Home: Day 27

Pic_842759f6 A big part of how Cozy At Home we are is dependent on how safe we feel in our own homes.  First Alert knows how important safety and security at home is and has created a whole line of products to ensure even private citizens have the highest in security protection in their own homes.

Pic_f17530d8From carbon monoxide detectors to fire safes and more, First Alert is a great place to start securing your own home.  From their vast array of products, we got to check out the First Alert home security camera model P-520 this past fall during our Cozy At Home Event.

Pic_bee37d82 From initial set up we were impressed with the simplicity of the camera.  While First Alert offers full security systems, this particular camera is a stand alone unit that can be added into other systems or connected directly to a TV, VCR, or DVR.  Even though it was incredibly easy to set up, just having it hooked up makes me feel like our house is now an impenetrable private lair.

With simple connections for audio, video and power, the camera can be set up and running in no time, and with 100 feet of cable included you will have plenty of mounting options.  And, since the First Alert P-520 is rated for indoor and outdoor use and has automatic night vision, you really can put it wherever you want.   Here at Rave Central, we mounted the camera on our front porch and ran the cable to our TV at the rear of our house.  Now we can see and hear what is going on at the front of our house by simply changing the channel on our TV.  This makes us feel cozy and secure as well as fulfilling childhood dreams of having the ultimate high tech security system. 

Pic_fa74cf16 For my wife, this is because when she was growing up my brother-in-law would share his dream about one day having a top-notch security system with cameras, motion detectors and more.  Not surprisingly, he grew up to own a room we called "the casino room" which had the highest in security systems and steel reinforced walls.  While I certainly don't dream of owning my own casino room, I really love knowing that my home is as secure with its own high tech video surveillance.

Best of all, by utilizing products from First Alert, I was able to get the same level of security while saving a lot of money by implementing the systems all by myself.  If you have even a small inclination and electronic know-how, you can easily and simply create your own elaborate security system that is comparable to those you would have professionally installed. 

Features of the First Alert P520 Wired Security Camera

» 100 ft. of BNC cable included

The human factor is the main reason why attacks on many computers and systems are successful. There are many great examples, hackers, virus writers, and dangerous users use the human factor to their advantage. Therefore, they use people to penetrate systems.Security Alarms, Security CCTV, Melbourne Security Installers, SecurityInstallers.com.au
