Summer is in full swing. That probably means that you're already planning a getaway. While you're thinking about relaxing, travel gear, and your best swimsuit, predators are doing a bit of their own summer planning. Summer is the perfect time to think about a security system. Today, there are plenty of security options that work in conjunction with smartphones, tablets and computers. That way, you can check in on your property, whether you're soaking up the sun on a local beach or one that's 3,000 miles away. Of course, installing a whole-house security system can really cut into your vacation budget. If all you need is a little peek, there are a variety of stand-alone security cameras that are inexpensive, easy to set up, and can work alone - as well as in pairs. Whether you opt to set up one camera in the living room or outfit the entire house, these security solutions can save you from any post-vacation surprises left behind by thieves, vandals, and even Mother Nature.
