We had an unwanted visitor come by our place the other day, then try break into the neighbours. Fortunately / unfortunately she was in and disturbed them which was a bit of a shock. We have a nice long dark driveway with lots of cover and limited lighting. Perfect huh!
So, its time to do some work on security, but I thought I would tap into the collective Geekzone IQ for some advice on alarm systems / products and possibly CCTV.
In our last place we had a paradox system installed that was good, but I wondered if there are any good options out there now that are better than old school alarm systems. We need to do the usual sirens, garage door opening, window/door sensors, but I also want to be able to do remote monitoring (android) and possibly add video at some point to.
I have spent most of the day looking at stuff like arlo pro2, Ring, bluetooth locks (not a fan of bluetooth for some reason), paradox systems etc... so any advice is more than welcome. We will be having a bunch of sensor lights etc installed too.
Ideally, any camera setups I want motion detection, plus ability to do local storage etc. I already have a QNAP Nas sitting here that could be useful, otherwise, limited other home automation in this place.
