Not only that, but Nest Cam works with Amazon Alexa for easy voice activated control and convenience. Nest Cam’s built in microphone and speaker offer two way communication, almost like an intercom. You can talk and/or listen to whoever or whatever is in the room through the app on your phone. Night vision capacity captures clear video footage during the night as well as the day. There is also an option to program in intelligent alerts, continuous cloud recording, and create activity zones for more precise alerts. A monthly subscription is required for full access.

Also, if you’re installing add on equipment, ask about any additional fees such as extra cloud storage for security camera footage. If you’re not buying the security gadget upfront, ask about the leasing price and any additional terms. Whether you’re a senior or simply buying a security system for a senior, I’d recommend Vivint. They have professional installation, so you won’t have to worry about your system working correctly; the person who installed my system was very kind, patient, and most importantly, knowledgeable. This could be very helpful for a senior, who may not know much about modern DIY installation. Aside from that, Vivint has one of the highest rated security apps in the Apple and Google Play stores, so you can rest assured that it’s easy to use, even for someone not super tech savvy. Of course, Vivint offers 24/7 professional monitoring, so the senior in your life will always be protected. For your business, you’ll want a more established security company, and Protect America fits the bill. They were founded in 1992 and are one of the leading names in home security. 24/7 professional monitoring comes with every Protect America system and ranges from $20 to $60 a month depending on your equipment and needs. Like Brinks, you’ll set up your Protect America system with someone over the phone who will test all of its components.
