Home security systems from many local companies in our area are now more high-tech than ever and becoming more affordable.
Recently, more homeowners in our area are choosing to install advanced technology in their homes for more peace of mind when it comes to security.
Roanoke resident Kim Stanley uses a home security system to keep her family safe. The technology gives her access to email and text alert notifications if someone opens any door in her house. It's also coupled with video and photo capability.
Stanley can control the security system with her smart phone, iPad, or computer. She can also control the lights and thermostats remotely and see real-time video captured by the video camera.
Plus, she also gets notifications in the event of a fire, gas leak, or flood.
Stanley's system was installed by Cox Communications. Other companies in our area, including ADT, Comcast, Associated Alarm & Camera, Best Buy, Vivint Virginia, and FrontPoint Security, all have similar security capabilities.
