With stories on the rise about packages being swiped from porches, online ordering has suddenly become risky. To combat that, and to monitor what happens on the outside of the home, more and more people are opting to have security cameras installed.

The problem is, those security cameras are less than secure.

Because Amazon owns Ring, the fine print in your instruction manual states that you give Amazon access to your security feed if anyone on that side should need to access it. Wait, what? That’s right, Amazon can pull up the feed from your Ring security camera and have a look-see at who’s been on your porch.

Now that’s invasive.

A Proper Access camera system is 100% secure, every day, all the time. We store your feed in your home and you’re the only one who has access to it. It’s also on our hybrid cloud, so you and only you can view it from anywhere in the world.

And to complete your total home security network, having our hack-proof WiFi installed at the same time makes good sense and can save you money.

To learn more about how you can have a totally secure camera system installed in your home, text “Secure Security” to our Site Specialist Matt, at 330-618-7756, or email him at Matt@ProperAccess.com to reserve your spot on our schedule.

And now is a perfect time to make sure your property is protected, before the barrage of holiday ordering takes place.
