Motion detector and sensors are essential to home security. Placing sensors at doors and windows can prevent up to 80 percent of attempted break-ins. At BluGuard, we pride ourselves in offering the best equipment to add the extra layer of security your family deserves. We currently provide the following detectors and sensors.

DOOR/WINDOW SENSOR
These sensors can detect and notify you when a door or window is opened whether your alarm is armed or not. The most common use is to keep intruders out, but these sensors are also great for keeping your loved ones in. Small children love to open doors and explore the outdoors. With these sensors, you can keep on top of things and ensure everyone is safe.

MOTION DETECTOR
A motion detector will alert you of any movement in your home. Motion detectors can also be energy savers. If connected to your lights, the device can turn lights off if a room is unoccupied or turn lights on if movement is detected. If you have a pet, motion detectors are smart enough to ignore animals up to 55 lbs.

GLASS BREAK
Glass break sensors use acoustic and shock detection to sense the sound of breaking glass in 360° range. When the shattered glass is detected, an alarm sounds to alert the homeowner, or any family member who may be monitoring the device through a smart device app. Glass break monitors are small and you’ll only need one detector per room.

IMAGE SENSOR
Image sensors play a vital role in home security. Image sensors give real-time visuals of each room they’re installed in. Like motion detectors, the image sensor is activated when movement is detected. It’ll capture images which you can easily view on any smart device. Image sensors are pet sensitive and allow you to capture images on demand during alarm and non-alarm events.

You may be wondering why something as simple as a doorbell has become all the rage. Installing a doorbell camera at your front entrance can add an extra layer of security and peace of mind for homeowners. Here’s how they’ll benefit you:

Convenience
Picture yourself in your bedroom, kitchen or bathroom and someone rings your doorbell. Instead of rushing to the door to see who it is, you can simply pick up your smartphone or tablet and view who’s at your door from the palm of your hand.

You’re Always Home
Criminals often test your property before attempting to enter. If you’re at work and someone is at your door, you can easily communicate with them through the intercom system from your smart device. This will make the criminal think the home is occupied and the security of your home won’t be compromised.

Motion Detection
An individual doesn’t have to ring your bell in order for your camera to record activity. As soon as motion is detected, the camera is activated, takes snapshots and records footage for you to view at your convenience.

Package Theft
Package thefts are unfortunately common, especially around the holidays. Many package thefts go unsolved because residents don’t have proper evidence. With a doorbell camera, video and photo evidence will be collected automatically.

Night Vision
Doorbell cameras feature high-quality video. You’ll get a clear visual of the person at your door regardless of the darkness of night. Simply keep your doorbell camera clean to effectively see who’s at your door.

Keep an Eye on Your Kids
When the kids come home from school, you can access the camera from work to make sure they arrived safely. Accessing your doorbell camera’s feed is as simple as opening an app on your device.

With today’s technology, you can easily convert your home into a smart home. Regardless of what kind of home you have, adding these simple features will provide the upgrade you need!

#1 UPGRADE YOUR WI-FI
Having a strong Wi-Fi connection in your home is the first step to making your home a smart home. If you only have Wi-Fi in one location, you’ll have to expand this feature throughout the home in order for your smart devices to properly communicate with other each other. If your Wi-Fi can’t reach certain rooms, smart devices won’t work efficiently.

#2 INSTALL SMART LIGHTS
Adding smart lights to your home allows you to turn on, turn off, and dim your lights through an app on your smart device. If you’re on vacation, you can schedule your lights to turn on or off to make it appear as though someone is home. Simply turning on your lights can lower the chances of a home invasion.

#3 SMART THERMOSTAT CONTROL
Smart thermostats are great energy and money savers. Allow your thermostat to learn your habits and crank up the heat or AC when needed. If the weather is a little warmer or cooler than expected, easily adjust your thermostat from your smart device so your home can be the perfect temperature when you arrive.

#4 VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
Keep an eye on your home no matter where you are. Having home security cameras provides peace of mind and allows you to check up on your pets while you’re away. With video surveillance, you can live stream to your smart device, record suspicious activity, see who’s at the door and make sure your kids get home safely.

#5 SMART SECURITY SYSTEM
Installing a quality security system that uses smart sensors throughout the home to monitor doors, windows and detect motion will provide the extra security your family needs. Choose a system that is 100 percent wireless, has tamper resistant technology and 24/7 monitoring. Since we are always on-the-go, install a smart security system that provides free mobile apps to control and monitor your smart home.
If this seems overwhelming, you can get all of the above in one package with BluGuard Security. One of our knowledgeable technicians will arrive to install your equipment, configure the control panel and walk you through how to use your new system.

We all worry about the safety of our homes and keeping our loved ones safe. When it comes to home invasion there are a few things that you can do to protect yourself and your family from a burglary.

#1 WALK AROUND THE EXTERIOR OF YOUR HOME
Make sure that you survey your property for vulnerable spots or spots you might be attracted to as a burglar. Make sure that you look for any expensive items that can be seen from a distance. You might want to find a way to conceal these items or block their view.

#2 BUILDING YOUR DEFENSES
A fence can go a long way when keeping potential burglars off of your property. The best type of fence is a chain-link one that you can see into but that cannot help potential intruders hide. Plus, you can always get a dog. Sometimes nothing is scarier that a loud bark that you weren’t expecting!

#3 GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS
There’s nothing wrong with being friendly, right? Getting to know your neighbors means that your neighbors are more likely to look out for you (and vice-versa) and therefore are more likely to report any kind of unwanted/suspicious behavior. Plus, they might be home at times that you are not and therefore could offer an additional layer of security.

#4 SECURE YOUR CAR
Always make sure that your car and anything valuable in it is locked and put away. If someone sees something in your driveway, or on the street, they are more likely to break in and potentially target your home.

#5 GET BLUGUARD

We’ll come out and install the perfect home security package for you so that you can monitor your home even while you are away. Contact us today at (970) 344-8700 for an appointment or quote.
