It’s no secret that Kelowna is home to a lot of snowbirds and people who call the beautiful Okanagan ‘home’ during the hottest months of the year. But is your security up to snuff when you head back home to Alberta or down south for the winter? These days, your home security system can do a whole lot more than just keep burglars at bay!

1. Environmental Sensors

Crazy things happen when you’re away from home. A small leak turns into a huge flood, a faulty furnace leads to frozen and broken pipes, or a carbon monoxide leak goes unnoticed until it’s too late. With Best Security’s environmental sensors, you can rest easy knowing that changes in your property will be sent directly to your phone, allowing you to send in help before the worst happens.

2. Live Video

Have a nagging worry? Today’s home security systems are well-connected, allowing you to login and view your live security videos from anywhere in the world? In fact, Best Security works with Alarm.com to offer wireless 3G radio monitoring, so we don’t even need an internet connection or phone line to monitor your property!

3. Remote Control Lighting

By ensuring the exterior of your home is well-lit, you can help deter would-be burglars from going after your home. With today’s remote access solutions, you can even take the scheduling of your lights one step further and simply turn them on and off when you feel like it, adding an extra layer of mystery to your absence.

4. Remote Locks

Even the best security system is no substitute for the human touch, at least in the eyes of your insurance company. Most insurance companies will require regular visits from a neighbour or service to ensure that everything is in order. To make these visits seamless and stay informed on your Kelowna property, consider remote locks! You can lock and unlock your door from your phone, allowing you to know who is there and when. Plus, no need to get copies of keys, which can then be lost.

5. GPS Tracking for Vehicles and Valuables

Your property isn’t the only valuable thing that today’s home security systems can keep track of. GPS tags can be installed on vehicles, including your boat or RV, allowing you to track them in the event of a theft. Want to go a step further? We can also put sensors onto big ticket valuables like electronics, computers, and artwork, allowing an alert to be sent straight to your phone if the piece is moved!
