Growth is both a blessing and a challenge, and The Living Room Community Church has been experiencing a great deal of growth over the last several years. Attendance each week is around 830, and to accommodate future growth, the church is planning an addition to the current facilities. While this means they will have more room for attendees there is also more space to cover when it comes to security.
Security can be an issue for churches in the Tri Cities area, especially as churches aren’t staffed 24/7, or even every day of the week. Fire, break-ins, vandalism, and theft are always a possibility. In addition, since they have such large gatherings, there is also a life-safety risk, so it’s important to have a good fire detection and security system in place.
Security not only protects the building and churchgoers, but also aligns with a church’s duty to take care of their assets and make good use of the donations provided to them.
It really is a fun and exciting time in the world of smart home automation, as leaps in technology have propelled the growth home security and convenience devices, from smart doorbells and locks to thermostats and lights, not to mention the rise of the voice assistants in the home.
In addition, having mobile control over not only security, video, lights, thermostats and other energy saving smart home devices gives you the ability to customize and change your home in real time, which can equate to savings long-term.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a highly toxic and poisonous gas. It is colorless, odorless and tasteless so it is hard to detect. Since there are no warning signs specific to CO, one may not be aware of the presence of the gas in their home and workplace. Exposure to CO can cause severe health issues, or even death, in humans and pets.
Because of this silent danger, it is important to be aware of prevention methods, detection, and signs and symptoms of CO poisoning to lessen the chances of the gas being present.
