Home security

We’ve never really felt the need for a home security system before because we live in a relatively safe neighborhood. But a friend has a security system that goes beyond simply protecting her house, and I have to admit that it’s pretty cool. It’s called home automation, and allows her to remotely control lights, climate, and video surveillance from wherever she is, which gives her peace of mind when she’s working late at the office or on a business trip across the country. Now that I’m looking for full-time work that will take me out of my house for longer stretches of the day, this is something I want to check into!
