In case you missed all of my cabin photos and moving photos on Instagram we moved!!! AND not only did we move but we bought a house and are officially home owners again. We have been searching, and searching, and searching some more for the perfect home for us and finally found it in the form of an A-frame on 5 acres and just moved in last week! This has been a long time coming and I am so excited about it, like can't even put it into words. I asked on Instagram for all your questions about our new cabin and while this post will not answer all of them it will address the main one... security. The overwhelming question I got was how are we going to stay safe living in a cabin in the mountains? Yes there is wild life, Yes we are fairly remote living on five acres in the mountains, and yes we do have a plan to protect our home and our babies. So basically if you were wondering about the security of our home and how we plan on keeping our family safe... this is the post for you! Also if you are looking at purchasing a home security system but maybe live more remote, this is also the post for you!
I should start this out by saying this post is sponsored by Logitech BUT all of this is my own and my own opinions. I can honestly say we owned a home security device before this and the one we received from Logitech that I will be sharing with you today is way better... like night and day better. So on that note our current plan for home security is the Circle 2 which is an indoor/outdoor HD security camera. We initially had ours set up outside so that I could see what was going on around the house but decided it made the most sense to move the security camera inside with a full view of everything going on in the house. This system is awesome I can access from any device and check on the house. Not only that but you can save up to 24 hours worth of activity which hopefully nothing will ever happen worth saving but just knowing that there is an option to save the data and potentially show that to the police or whoever needs to see it is really awesome.
For me having a security camera in our house is a weight off my chest.. and I have anxiety so I say that literally. Knowing that I can check in on the house at any time gives me so much peace of mind. There are elk, coyotes, and all sorts of other animals wandering around our cabin and the last thing I ever want to think about is something happening to our girls. Having a home security system for me is essential and something I don't think I would go without. We had a different home security system before in our previous house that we couldn't check in on while out and about and I have to say it is so nice to know that at any time I can check in with this home security camera the Circle 2, and see what is going on. As a mom It allows me to focus more on what matters which is taking care of my babies and I love having that extra bit of security over our house. We have the Circle 2 which is a wired camera (though there is a wireless option) and we have had it indoor and outdoor as our home security system and it has worked great in both setting. Our house sees all kinds of wild life and with two little girls it is nice to be able to regularly check up on what is going on... especially at night. This home security camera does have auto night vision up to 15 feet which has been so good for my mama heart when I hear a weird sound or just want to check up on the house before going to sleep.
SO If you were wondering about how we were planning on keeping the cabin safe or are looking for a home security camera for yourself definitely check out the Circle 2 from Logitech! As a mother and now a home owner I have to say having the extra level of security is so good. Also I am giving one away on my instagram feed NOW you can find the post HERE.
