We are in 2019, with a new administration in place and property crimes are not going away anytime soon. It is no surprise that we are strong proponents of home security systems with camera capabilities. More specific, live camera streaming capabilities. When you contact 911 in the Mat-Su Valley for a burglary alarm, the dispatcher is going to request if you can "confirm" this alarm i.e. visually. If you can not confirm the alarm, troopers WILL NOT respond. They do not have the staffing to respond to possible false alarms. Being able to tell the dispatcher that you have a visual on the burglar is an absolute must during these challenging times for Alaskans. DIY systems such as Ooma or Ring are our top picks as they meet all of the above requirements, allowing live streaming to your mobile devices. More importantly, they are great choices for renters who want to take their security products when they move. See some information we collected on these two great and affordable products below. When making the final decision, consider what the value of peace of mind for you and your loved ones is worth.
