Both alarm and video surveillance systems keep you and your home safe but there is a difference between the two. Alarm systems notify you of any intruders entering your home day or night once alarmed. When there is an intrusion you are contacted by a 24/7 central station informing you or has the capability to dispatch the police, if needed. Video surveillance allows customers to see both live and past activities in and outside of their homes. Some video surveillance systems allow notifications to your mobile device but does not have the ability to dispatch the police. You have to determine which would suit you and your family’s lifestyle; no matter both systems keep you and your family secure.
