After a recent break in, I'm looking at how I can improve the security of my house to stop this happening in future. It sounds like I can get a traditional sort of alarm installed for around a thousand- but I'm curious about the internet based options available. There seem to be several alternatives that can send a notification to your phone when they detect movement in your house and you can view the video footage through your phone. But they don't seem to have an audible alarm - wouldn't it be better if that either automatically goes off and you can turn it off in a false alarm, or you can choose to activate it? I'd think the best security stops someone from getting into your house at all, but if the did, i'd certainly want them to move off as soon as possible.
Can anyone with experience or expertise on this area give me their thoughts?
