Mobile Technology Allows Control over Home Even on Vacation

Mobile Technology from Sting Alarm, Inc. Allows Control over Home Even on Vacation

Advanced home security systems enable users to lock doors, control lights and arm alarms from cell phone.

May 10, 2012, Henderson, Nev.— When your family is enjoying summer vacation, the safety of your home should be the last thing on your mind. That’s the goal of Sting Alarm, Inc., a Henderson, Nevada-based company that specializes in camera systems that have a built-in web server, allowing mobile users to view remotely what is happening at their home or business. With the touch of a cell-phone button, homeowners can check in as frequently as they want, while also turning on and off lights, adjusting thermostats, locking doors and more.

“Summer vacation is a time to make memories, not worry about what’s happening back home,” said Jon Perry, vice president and partner for Sting Alarm, Inc. “That’s why it’s important to be informed. The highest percentage of burglaries occurs in July and August, when families are traveling. Our systems rely on technology to put the homeowner back in control. It can send email alerts if someone disarms an alarm and even show live video from a person’s home.” Sting technology is available on all Apple, Android and Blackberry platforms.

Perry added that nearly 30 percent of private homes have security systems, and homes without security systems are two to three times more likely to be broken into. 

"Use common sense when you leave town,” said Perry. “Make sure your house appears occupied. Today, you can do that just by using your cell phone to maintain control.”

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department offers the following tips on security:

GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS

  • The basic concept of neighborhood patrolling is neighbors watching out for each other
  • Know the neighbors on all sides of you
  • Learn what vehicles belong there

SECURE YOUR HOME

  • Secure your home when you leave even for short periods of time
  • Deny the burglar the opportunity to make you a victim by securing all doors and windows before you leave

KEEP YOUR GARAGE DOOR CLOSED

  • Garage burglaries often occur during the day. The thief simply walks into an open garage, removes what he or she wants and is gone in a minute or two

STOLEN VEHICLES/THEFT FROM VEHICLES

  • The safest place for your car is in your garage
  • The second safest place for your car is in your driveway, locked up
  • All valuables should be removed from your vehicle, or at least placed out of sight.
