Choosing a home security system to protect your family and property is an important decision. Designing Spaces’ Abigail Cooper visits the home of Margaret and Benjamin in Cape Coral, Florida, along with Tim Myers from Tyco Security Products to help guide us through the process of selecting and securing a professionally installed and monitored DSC security system.

The wirelessly connected system works on several levels, addressing the concerns of ease of use, aesthetics, reliability, and professional monitoring. It also has the ability detect numerous safety concerns: leaking water, carbon monoxide, and smoke.

Tim also shows the interface mounted on the wall where the system can be controlled, and displays the video cameras that you can monitor from a smart phone or tablet when you’re not home.
