Keep Your Family Video Streaming Service Safe

happy-family-watching-television-together

I’m a father of 4 children.  The last thing I want is my children to see something they don’t need.

That is why I am on the board of several active video filtering boards to help Americans continue the right of choosing what you and the family sees.  It all started back in 2005 when Congress passed the Fair viewing act (source: https://www.congress.gov/bill/109th-congress/house-bill/357?q=H.R.+357+(109) to allow American’s the right to choose what they see and hear inside their household.

Several companies have come and gone in the years trying to provide this service and often get shut down by Hollywood.  VidAngel who has been around for years found a way to bring this service back into the homes of millions via a buy and sellback system.  (source: http://filterthatmovie.com).  By doing this, as long as you sell back your video after viewing it, you can do it for affordable prices and choose what you see and listen to during the film or TV show.  They have changed their process over the years to make it more ‘legal’ but their are still hiccups they are going to have to deal with in order to make it possible to fully edit movies.

I for one am behind this movement and encourage everyone to take act and encourage congress to stand behind the act they passed years ago to provide future generations the choice of what comes out of their TV.  It will be an interesting court case that Hollywood takes against Vidangel in the months to come.

Wireless Security Systems

Wireless security systems offer homeowners a very diverse way to protect their home. Although there are some disadvantages, a wireless system is a very versatile way to add increased security for you and your family.

A wireless security system will generally offer some more maneuverability for the homeowner by providing access to the alarm system from a remote. Having a wireless keychain remote for your home security system allows you to turn your system on and off without needing to do so manually. This is useful as it knocks time off of the sometimes-annoying process of alarming your system before leaving the house, and can easily be activated in a rush, inside or outside the house.

With advances in technology, wireless home security systems are becoming more and more complex, offering many more benefits to the user. Some new features in recent years include quick-key remotes that can turn on your house lights, open garage doors, and control your alarm, all from a single remote. Keeping up with the times, many wireless security systems can be accessed with a smart phone app, providing the same advantages of a remote, but all centrally located on your phone.

Installing your security system on your phone is vital to your well being, especially if you are sick or elderly. With a remote or phone, users who have injured themselves or need assistance can easily contact their security company to send help. No matter how far away from their installed alarm system they are, receiving assistance is as simple as pushing a button.

Wireless Security Systems – Advantages and disadvantages

One of the most appreciated benefits of the remote is that a customer doesn’t need to remember complicated codes to set their alarm. This saves time, but also does provide a couple major disadvantages. The first is that the remotes are portable and small, which means that they can easily be misplaced and lost. If you lose your remotes and forget your password, you will have to call your security provider to come reset the system, which is of course a major nuisance. Another major disadvantage of a remote is that, since no code is needed, the alarm system doesn’t know who is entering the house, simply that they turned the alarm off. Generally this is not as bad of a problem as it seems, as a potential intruder would need to know exactly which house matched which remote, but it is still something to keep in mind.
