Affordable Home Security Wireless Camera Review

Do you worry about your home security?  If you are a parent and have a family living in a house, then most likely you are at least thinking of protecting your home and family.  What options do you have in home security systems that are affordable and fits in your budget?  Most home security system will cost you about $50 per month, that’s $600 a year.

If you can afford to shell out $600 per year for a nice home security system, then you should definitely get one because it will be worth it.  I recommend sticking to a well known company instead of small unknown company.  The main reason for going with a well known home security company like ADT is the fact that they will be always available, which I think is very important aspect of Home Security.  Company like ADT has several redundancy in place in case of disaster recovery.  For example, if one of the ADT monitoring location goes down and becomes unavailable, then there is no worry to you as the customer because there is another ADT location that can continue Home Security Monitoring service.  Unlike ADT, smaller companies cannot afford to implement similar infrastructure to provide redundancy.

Kids Can Make Money Too

My kid is only seven years old and he is already into collecting money.  I use the term “collecting” here since he doesn’t understand the true meaning of the word “saving” when it comes to money.  So he is into collecting coins and bills.  However as kids grow up, they will be more interested in making money and often parents want them to do so as well.  Encouraging your children to earn their own money is a great way to foster creativity and innovation, promote independence, and begin to teach them about key financial skills like budgeting, saving, managing money, and investing.
