Luxury Real Estate: How Secure is Secure?August 18, 2011
For the ultra-rich, security starts at home and military-grade systems have been the norm for some time. Some of the world’s most secure homes, according to security experts, feature purified air, bulletproof glass windows, panic rooms, iris recognition scanners and license plate recognition software. And it takes a full time staff monitoring any goings-on.
Thanks to increased Internet connectivity, the moderately priced video surveillance market is often the security system of choice for the less vulnerable. One example is Automated Video Systems which fit the bill enough to help one sleep through the night. This security grade usually comes with night vision-enabled cameras that record at 240 frames per second and motion detectors. Software lets a homeowner monitor the cameras’ views remotely in real time from a PC, laptop or PDA anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
