Sponsor: SimpliSafe has cameras - Here's why you'll love them

The holiday season is upon us. It's the perfect time of year to get together with family and friends to celebrate. There is nothing better than stuffing yourself with a spectacular Christmas dinner and reminiscing with the people closest to you.

Unfortunately, this time of year also brings the increased possibility of having our homes burglarized. The reality is the holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for burglars and thieves. This makes sense because an unattended home is a perfect target for intruders who don't want to take the risk of being caught.

Knowledgeable homeowners, however, don't have to worry so much about this problem. That's because they've taken the right steps to protect their homes while they're traveling to visit family over the holidays. The most important of these steps is installing a home security system, and for that, our sponsor SimpliSafe is simply the best.

SimpliSafe Security Camera

One of the main reasons we love SimpliSafe is because it offers 24/7 professional monitoring without annual contracts. SimpliSafe has always offered sensors, on-the-go mobile control, SMS text and email alerts, power outage protection, smoke and fire protection, and more. But now, a new product has been added to the SimpliSafe lineup that makes coverage even better: cameras!

Security cameras can now be added onto any SimpliSafe package for just $99. These cameras will help you keep an eye on your home whether you're away on a trip, or just out picking up groceries.

SimpliSafe's new cameras stream in glorious 720p HD video and work seamlessly with the rest of your system. Storage for the footage captured by the cameras is also not a problem. The cameras use what's called "Intelligent Recording," which means they only activate when the system detects activity.

Whenever your system is armed or disarmed, the camera will activate. It will also activate if someone triggers your alarm, so you can catch the intruder in the act. Night vision is also included, so your home is protected even when it's dark out.

You can also live stream the footage if you'd like. Otherwise, anything captured by the cameras will be stored for 30 days with a $4.99 monthly plan.

Because some people are concerned about installing a camera in their home due to personal privacy, SimpliSafe cameras offer "Extreme Privacy Control," which gives the user complete control over when the lens is open and closed.
