Wireless Home Security for Your Bug Out Location

By on July 17, 2014

The most hard-core members of the prepping community go so far as to create remote bug out locations where they can flee in the case of a natural or man-made disaster. Bug out locations can be remote, mountaintop cabins, or fully furnished bunkers in the middle of the woods. It just depends on where the individual lives and the resources he or she has at their disposal.

Might we offer a suggestion for an additional piece of equipment every prepper needs for his or her bug out location? That piece of equipment is a wireless home security system. We recommend a system not to provide you with home security protection in the event of a disaster, but to protect your location until such a disaster strikes. After all, your bug out hideaway is not the place you currently live full-time. It needs to remain protected during those long stretches when no one is around. To see the sort of thing we are talking about, this webpage is a good example.


A wireless system is ideal because it requires neither wired electric service nor landline telephone service. As long as the location has access to a fairly dependable cellular signal, the wireless system can provide the protection you need under virtually any conditions. Just keep the batteries fresh and you are good to go.

Actually, a wireless home security system is also ideal for hunting cabins and summer vacation homes too. Any secondary property you own where permanent residency is not established would benefit from the protection offered by wireless home security.

Remote Monitoring

A wireless home security system for your secondary property should include remote monitoring capabilities with security cameras. The whole point of remote monitoring is to give you access to your security system and your property no matter where in the world you are. You could be in a business meeting in Eastern Europe and still checking on your bug out location using your smartphone and an Internet connection. It is as simple as that.

The cameras are almost a necessity in order to enable you to always know what is happening with your property. Security cameras can be placed both indoors and out, giving you the widest possible coverage. Moreover, if your monitoring package allows it, you will likely be able to reposition your cameras remotely. That means you could sweep an entire room from one side to the other with the touch of a button. Repositioning your cameras is just as easy.


Extra Benefits

Protecting your bug out property aside, there are some extra benefits that come with installing a wireless security system on your remote property. For example, you can equip your cabin with full home automation.

Are you planning to go out to your property for the weekend? Turn up the thermostat on Friday morning so the place is warm when you arrive. Do you use a well to keep your hot water tank filled? You can use your remote system to activate the water pump and fill the tank. The possibilities are nearly endless.

It is clear to see that the wireless home security system is not just for your primary residence. It can also be a very important element of your bug out location or summer vacation property. Wireless home security offers a very affordable way to protect your property, monitor activity in the area, and automate features like thermostat control and lighting.

No, a wireless home security system is not absolutely necessary for surviving a disaster scenario. Nevertheless, while you are waiting for that disaster to strike, you might as well protect your property from possible intruders. One way to do that is through a wireless home security system.
