A couple weeks ago, we were laying in bed and we heard someone jiggling the doorknob in the kitchen.
The sound was so loud that I swore it was vibrating in my eardrums.
With no other sound in the house, the doorknob jiggling seemed to have the entire house vibrating. My husband grabbed the gun and his flashlight and rushed to the kitchen. It shocked him to see that it was our son, who was coming home from school early. It was an attempt to surprise us for our anniversary, that was almost more than a surprise. That’s when we decided it was time to have an automated light system installed. The automated light system wasn’t much more than a dusk to dawn light system. We could have dusk to dawn or motion controlled, all in one system. We chose to have the entire automated light system installed. Although we didn’t plan on using the dusk to dawn light often, it was nice to have it when we had guests or when the younger kids had sleepovers. They would often set up tents in the backyard. Whether we left the dusk to dawn light on, or turned on the motion detector, we felt much safer. We also had the motion control installed at our house gate. This would detect anyone coming onto the property. The motion detector would turn the lights on whenever someone came within its sensors. With the automated light system installation, we had video to capture whoever, or whatever had tripped the motion sensor. Our new automated light system made us feel much safer in our home.
