Digitech Custom Audio Video is here to help you decide what’s most crucial to your family and what will benefit you in the long term. By working with us, you’ll maintain peace of mind in your Indianapolis, IN home knowing that your system is reliable and strong. Keep reading to learn more. Wireless Access One of the most important aspects of a security system is the strength of the connection. In order for your home to stay secure it needs to stay armed while you are away and also notify you if there is any suspicious activity. In order for that to happen, you need a strong home network and a quality system that can maintain a wireless connection. If anyone ever breaks into your home, your system should notify you of an event immediately—such as a door opening or a window breaking—and even alert the local police as well. Our security systems can send you text messages or emails to let you know the status of your home at all times. Surveillance Cameras Surveillance cameras are important because they capture activity in detail while you’re away. It’s one thing to know that a criminal broke your bedroom window and then stole your belongings, but it’s another to have that activity captured on video. With surveillance cameras installed around your property, you’ll have the assurance that in the event of a break-in the authorities will have proof and will...
