Get Smarter Security for Your Las Vegas Property

In one of our first blogs about security and surveillance, we talked about the added intelligence that has come to home security. While the simple sensor and alarm types of systems still exist and are used by many people, smart home technology has added many new capabilities and controls that go far beyond the old solutions.

Internet connectivity, smart cameras, multi-purpose smart sensors, smart locks, and cloud-based services that aggregate security information and monitoring are revolutionizing the ways you can secure your property. As a home security monitoring and alarm system company based in Las Vegas since 1986, Eagle Sentry decades of experience in the home protection and peace of mind business.

We bring up peace of mind because it’s an important point. You want two things from your home security system and the company that provides it: One, that your home is being watched and protected.

Is Your Home Wireless Network Up to Par?

is-your-home-wireless-network-up-to-par

Your Connected Home Needs High-Performance Networking

In our hyper-connected world, connectivity is no longer a luxury but a necessity. One of the most interesting aspects of technology is how the world adapts to it. For centuries people did not have telephones, but after its invention, it revolutionized communication around the globe. The same happened with electric power, and we can’t imagine a world without those two technologies.

In a similar vein, we have adapted to depend on always-on connectivity. If we need to find directions to a destination or dash a message off to a family member, we reach for our smartphone.  These things depend on a network and internet connection, or they don't work without it.

Your home is similarly dependent on robust connectivity. Entertainment continues to move toward internet delivery, and services like Netflix and Spotify are entirely reliant on a network connection. Smart thermostats, lights, and security also depend on connectivity, especially if you want to control any of these functions or know the status while you're not at home.

While some devices still work best with wired connections - and we recommend wired for specific applications like video distribution - the trend with new devices is fully wireless, which means that your home wireless network in Las Vegas needs to be up to the task.  After all, most of the remote control of functions depends on wireless connectivity. Whether it's the smart remote for your audio-video system or the app on your smartphone for your smart lock control, reliable wireless is critical.

Eagle Sentry takes a professional approach to wireless networking. This means professional grade equipment, installation, and service and support. Read on for a closer look.

Get Smarter Security with a Fully Connected Home

As a smart home technology company that started in security, naturally we think your home's security is a critical topic. Most people have some form of a home security system. Whether it's one installed by a monitoring company or your own do-it-yourself system with some smart cameras, everyone wants a measure of protection and peace of mind.

With the wide availability of a plethora of smart devices for the home, opportunities abound for making your home that much safer. Devices like sensors, cameras, lights, and locks can be made to work together to give you multiple layers of protection. Not only will you know when something is amiss, but you can also have the comfort of knowing everything is as it should be as well.

Not all of these smart devices work well together; some are better than others. An expert home protection company like Eagle Sentry — one that even has locally based monitoring right here in Las Vegas — can set up the right smart security system for you.

4 Tips to Keep Your Garage Secure

4-tips-to-keep-your-garage-secure

A Safer Garage Makes for a Safer Home 

You might not think too much about the security of your garage. While you may not believe you have many things of value in there, they do add up. Do you lock your car in the garage? Your car itself is valuable, and you may keep other things of value in the vehicle as well. What about that fancy mountain bike for riding the Red Rock Canyons? If you start thinking about it, your garage houses many items you’d rather not live without.

Does Your Security Alarm Company Do This?

does-your-security-alarm-company-do-this

Why You Need a Local Monitoring Service

We live in a world of many distractions. How many notifications do you get on your smartphones every day? How many emails do you get reminding you of those notifications? Sometimes we get so overloaded, we start tuning things out — but that opens the door to missing something important.

How many times have you heard a car alarm go off? About 90% of the time it is someone inadvertently locking the car in a way that sets the alarm, but there is still a way to get in the vehicle through an unlocked door, setting the alarm off. Only if that alarm goes off for a long — and annoying — period of time might you investigate what is happening. Most likely, if your house security alarm goes off for any reason, most neighbors won’t pay attention either — unless it continues for a long time. If it happened to be a burglar, they might make off with something in that timeframe.

Of course, alarm monitoring and security companies have been around for a long time. You can have your home professionally monitored by many firms. Eagle Sentry has been in the home security and alarm monitoring business for over 30 years in the Las Vegas area. One of the things we pride ourselves on is serving the local market. We are here in Las Vegas, and understand what happens here. As an integrator that also works with the latest in smart home technology, we also know how to weave security with smart technology to offer a complete security solution.

If you are looking for more than the standard security monitoring for your property, keep reading to see how we are different.

In today’s hyper-connected world, it seems like everyone always knows what everyone else is doing.

When you travel away from home, there are typically things that you do to ensure that your property will be safe while you're away.

So as you escape the heat this summer in Las Vegas, here are some good rules to follow to ensure your property is safe. Spoiler alert: We are a security company, so one of these tips involves investing in surveillance cameras — it’s a great way to keep an eye on your home no matter where you go.

Looking to Install Security Cameras?

looking-to-install-security-cameras

Consider These Questions Before You Start Work on Your Las Vegas Home

Security cameras used to be something you would only see in commercial buildings and secure environments. They were relatively expensive for home use and required special wiring and recording equipment for video footage. Today's internet-connected software and inexpensive camera technology have completely changed that landscape.

Today’s cameras are connected to the internet, can detect motion and sound, and even recognize objects like animals, vehicles, and people’s faces. Modern cameras can provide the peace of mind of knowing what's going on in and around your property at all times, and not just when something unexpected happens. You can keep an eye on pets, know when your children get home from school, and even check in on elderly relatives.

Options abound with security cameras, from do-it-yourself systems to high-end continuous video surveillance. As home security experts in the Las Vegas area for over 30 years, Eagle Sentry wants you to be able to make informed decisions to get the security camera installation that’s right for you.

Just Like Craft Beer, Locally Brewed Home Security is Better

Without question, you have many choices for home security.

There are also many national security companies with "starter" systems advertised for very low cost if you sign up for their monitoring plans.

You Need Today’s Technology, Installed by Experts

Security systems have been around for a long time. We know, since Eagle Sentry has been installing security and surveillance systems in and around Las Vegas since 1986. The traditional security system provided peace of mind that something is keeping an eye on your property when you’re away. The typical system had sensors attached to windows and doors and control system that could be armed and disarmed. When armed, the system could notify a monitoring center about a door or window that has been opened (or broken) when it wasn’t expected.
