If you don't have a home security system, you need one. Here's why, you work hard to make money to buy a home, pay a mortgage, have a car, have nice things, so your family can also have nice things, and... it could all be gone in a blink of an eye. Sure insurance might protect your home and your valuables but your family might never feel safe again knowing how they felt when they literally lost everything.
Recent studies suggest that homes without alarm systems are three times more likely to be burglarized than homes with alarm systems. You can also reduce your Homeowners Insurance Premiums by getting a security system installed. Your household may already be among the growing number of families who feel the peace of mind of having an alarm system in their home. Just like the technology in TV’s, computers, and cell phones, the technology in security systems is always increasing and changing to better meet the needs of the end user.

ZWave and Accessories
Z-Wave makes any home a “smart home” – quickly, easily and affordably!
Z-Wave is a next-generation wireless ecosystem that lets all your home electronics talk to each other, and to you, via remote control. It uses simple, reliable, low-power radio waves that easily travel through walls, floors and cabinets. Z-Wave control can be added to almost any electronic device in your house, even devices that you wouldn't ordinarily think of as "intelligent," such as appliances, window shades, thermostats and home lighting.
Z-Wave unifies all your home electronics into an integrated wireless network, with no complicated programming and no new cables to run. Any Z-Wave enabled device can be effortlessly added to this network, and many non-Z-Wave devices can be made compatible by simply plugging them into a Z-Wave accessory module. In seconds, your device gets joined to the network and can communicate wirelessly with other Z-Wave modules and controllers.
