LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

On April 30 at 2:28 p.m., a burglar smashed a window and gained entry to a home in the 3600 block of 38th street, and the homeowner watched it all on video.

The homeowner called police, but the burglar fled with an AR-15 Rifle and a Glock 17 pistol before they arrived.

The whole burglary was captured on high-quality video, thanks to a sophisticated security system that is gaining popularity in the Lubbock area.

"You can remote arm and disarm your security systems. A lot of people don't know that you can remote view cameras, you can watch your home, or if you have a vacation home you can watch it from your iPhone, iPad and computer," said Chris Blaylock.

Blaylock is the owner of Custom Electronics and has seen immense changes in home security technology.

"We're absolutely amazed at the way that it has transitioned," he said. "We went from a land line monitored system, now you can remote arm, disarm, look at cameras. It makes it so much easier whenever you have so much control over your home."

His company installs about five systems with remote viewing technology a week.

"You could get a phone call from your plumber, unlock the front door, disarm the security system, watch him come into your house and do his work, watch him leave, re-lock the front door, re-arm the security system and then dispute his bill whenever it's too much and it is so simple to use. You open up an app and it is pretty straight forward."

The Lubbock Police Department urges anyone with any information relating to this case to contact Crime Line at 741-1000 or Detective Harris at 239-4148.
