Wilmington is Delaware’s largest city and economic engine and provides big city ‘feel’ while their scale and walkability preserves its small-town charm.

According to, Wilmington has a “rich history and offers a unique blend of old and new. Old Swedes Church was erected in 1698 and is still in use, and the Harriet Tubman Byway of the Underground Railroad runs right through downtown Wilmington. On Market Street, Willingtown Square hosts several of our oldest residential structures, and Rodney Square is our central public space that honors Delaware’s vote for colonial independence. The street is dotted with beautiful, historic buildings and ornate architecture brought back to life with new uses for a new age, right in the heart of the city.

The Riverfront, a new district forged from a former shipyard and industry hub, is one of the city’s hottest destinations with its dynamic live-work-play environment. Wilmington is proud of it’s history and ambitious about the future.”

What Burglars Look For

Most TV and movies show burglaries happening at night but in fact, most burglaries take place in the afternoon. So, while you’re enjoying Wilmington’s burgeoning restaurant scene on Market Street, Union Street, and Trolley Square or the Delaware Art Museum, The Grand Opera House or Live Nation at The Queen, bad guys may be helping themselves.

Social media is so tempting, but burglars have been known to monitor social for targets. Be careful about posting that you’re out of town or gone for long periods of time.

What is a Smart Home?

You may have heard the words Smart Home or Smart Home Automation lately. It might still sound like the Jetson’s, but smarter security is here now, for less than you think. Do you remember when you thought of your smartphone as a convenience and not a necessity? That’s how you’ll feel about smarthomes soon.

You might think that smart devices are the definition of a Smart Home. Smart devices are an important part of building a smart home, but some smart devices alone does not make a Smart Home.

So what does make a home smart?

Alarm Engineering is a five star team looking to add YOU!

Your Security System is the Smart Home Coach

Think of your favorite sports team. Each player has important and specialized skills, but they can only win games by working together.

The foundation of a good team is the coach. Throughout the game, the coach gets information from players and assistants to understand the big picture of what’s happening on the field. With this information, he can call the plays and makes sure each player contributes.

The true smart home has such a coach: your security system. Your security system controls every device in the home. It gathers intelligence from around the home and coordinates actions to make the home safer, smarter and more efficient.

You might not see what’s happening behind the scenes, but you will definitely notice the unique features and value that only a security-controlled smart home can deliver.

Integrated video, energy savings and proactive protection are some specific examples of how a Smart Home can make a positive impact. Read our full article on these features here.
