Why Have Your Security Professionally Monitored?

Why Have Your Security Professionally Monitored?

There is no point in having a security system if no one knows when it goes off. That is why, for years, companies have offered remote monitoring of those systems for you.

3 ways to use Bravas Solution Guide to pick the right technology

At Bravas, we recently published our 70-plus page Solution Guide – which you can download here. In this blog, we will review three different ways you can use it to help you make better decisions about how smart you want your smart home to be.

The first way will be ‘short and sweet’ – designed for someone who just has a few minutes and wants to make sure they are not missing anything. The second approach will be more ‘focused’ on specific areas you might be interested in. The final way, which we call Cover-to-Cover, will be the most thorough look at what you should be considering. Whichever way works for you, if you want someone to help you work through our Solution Guide with you, let us know, and we would love to help.
