Chicago Smart Home & CCTV Experts

Ever leave home and wonder “Did I leave the lights on?”


It’s not uncommon to see security cameras more commonly known as CCTV security cameras situated on every corner of every building in commercial areas. As one of the most cost-effective security systems, CCTV is used by almost every business to protect their property, and nowadays, they’re becoming a more frequent occurrence on homes too. Wi-Fi plug and play options don’t stand up to CCTV systems and are only reliable when there is an internet connection and many people are realizing the effectiveness of CCTV over wireless options. Some of the major benefits of a home or business CCTV security system include insurance deductions from your provider for elevating the protection of your property. CCTV is a visual crime deterrent. Criminals are opportunistic and will head to a property without cameras before they take on a property with the cameras. You can monitor your property from the comfort and safety of your own home and now you can even get an app to monitor the cameras on your smartphone device. If you happen to be the victim of a theft or vandalism the CCTV security cameras installed can help identify the criminals and help you recoup your loss. Lastly, CCTV security camera installations require little maintenance which Arnold Electric Services, Inc can help you with. Call us today for your free installation estimate.

What if all the devices in your life could connect to the internet? And not just computers and smartphones. We’re talking about everything… clocks, speakers, lights, doorbells, cameras, windows, window blinds, hot water heaters, appliances, thermostats, security cameras… you name it. And what if those devices could all communicate, send you information, and take your commands? It’s not science fiction it’s what’s happening right now and it’s a key component of home automation and smart homes. Home automation and smart home technology are exactly what it sounds like: automating the ability to control items around the house. Smart homes, once costing tens of thousands of dollars can now be done by anyone with an electrical system and an internet connection at an affordable entry price. You can start out as small as one switch to control the outside lights and then add as you go up to 200 switches. You can integrate with Alexa. You can put your kids light switches on the smart home app and make sure you never spend another nickel on lighting spaces when you’re not there. Smart home installation still requires a licensed electrician such as Arnold Electric Services, Inc but is no longer invasive and expensive. Your smart home installation or home automation system could be up and running in as little as one day. We stock starter kits from name brand companies and our vendors hold stock of additional smart home and building and home automation that make for quick, easy and user-friendly systems before you know it.
