Protect Your Home and Family with The Savvy Guide to Home Security

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Indianapolis, IN - AUGUST 2005 - - They are the two most important things in your life - your family, and your home. You need to protect them! Home security measures are important in today's society. Whether it is to protect your personal records from identity theft, or to provide added security for your family after dark, you can create a system on your own, or in concert with professionals.

Indy -Tech Publishing, the publishing division of Sams Technical Publishing, LLC, has announced the August release of The Savvy Guide to Home Security, ISBN 0 -7906 -1315 -8.

This book is the 4th in Indy -Tech Publishing's new "Savvy Guide" series. This series of books is designed with the savvy consumer in mind. "These books are designed to help a user with a moderate to strong knowledge base regarding the subject at hand," states Richard White, COO at Sams Technical Publishing. "This new book will help readers achieve their goals, much like having a friend who is an expert on home security guiding you along the way."

The Savvy Guide to Home Security goes beyond the prepackaged system that a national provider wants to sell to you. Author John Mueller explains the different types of components and systems to help you understand what you need and how it works. Mueller provides guidance on installing your own system, or working with a security company to design a custom monitored system. He also provides key information about maintaining security systems. Either way, you, your family, and your home are more secure.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
