Security Tips and Tricks

Did you know you can watch multiple surveillance cameras' feeds on any TV in your house? Connect a modulator to transmit audio and video over your existing coax cables onto any unused channel.

If you're concerned about thieves trolling your neighborhood with garage clickers, hoping for a match, you can add an extra level of security to the largest door to your home by plugging your garage door opener into an Insteon On/Off Module: The garage door will not open again until the associated On/Off Module is turned on from an Insteon command.

Add automation control to your security system. The Smarthome SELECT SecureLinc 2 Wireless Home Security System can control up to 30 zones, so you can set it to turn on your porch light at sunset or illuminate your house if a trespasser steps onto your property.

Hate carrying your keys when you go for that morning jog? Enter your house keylessly with a touchpad lockset.

Installing a camera in a location where low lighting conditions can occur? Infrared (IR) cameras are now available with built in IR emitters that will allow the camera to ""see"" within a specified range even if no light is present.
