We are all thinking of ways to save money, and it’s also the time of year when part-time residents are putting their homes into “hibernation.” As a part of this process thermostats are turned down, electrical devices are unplugged, and some take the added steps of suspending their cable or satellite TV and telephone services.

Water leak detection is nothing new; people have been installing water detectors (“water bugs”) for years. These devices are typically connected to a monitored alarm panel. When the sensor gets wet, it triggers the alarm panel to call the monitoring company who then calls the homeowner or property manager. They must go to the house and turn off the water.

Vail Electronics recently completed a retrofit installation of 8 security cameras in a residential property in Beaver Creek, Colorado. The project was completed using a combination of wired and wireless cameras connected to a two terabyte video server. The wireless cameras transmit the video stream over a secure wireless network and derive power from nearby electrical outlets. Due to the high-end nature of the finishes in the home, all of this was done with very little wall damage and virtually no visible wiring.
