When it comes to home security, you need to know what’s going on in your home at all times.

From the smart device of your choice, you can lock doors, set the alarm, and view live surveillance footage. Receive alerts on your phone any time there's suspicious activity on your property. Forget about leaving a key under the doormat. Create unique access codes so your housekeeper or dog walker can get in even if you're not home.
Your alarm system isn’t just about scaring away intruders. It’s there to warn you of any problems. That's why you need to work with a professional for a custom solution that alerts you of what matters most. You can receive email alerts when someone opens the front door or sets off an alarm on the perimeter. You can then pull up a dedicated touchpad or mobile device to check in on your home. You can see who has used their codes, view footage to look for suspicious activity, and make sure all doors are locked.
When it comes to your home surveillance system, there are a few things you want to pay close attention to. First, you need to make sure you're using the right security cameras for each application. For example, bullet cameras are great for outdoor use while dome cameras are perfect for bedrooms. Find cameras that offer high-resolution images and pan-tilt-zoom capabilities. It should be easy to access your surveillance footage through a mobile app, a dedicated touchpad, or an online portal. Get the ability to pull up live surveillance footage or search recorded footage as needed. Your digital recorder should have optimized search features so you can look up videos by date and location.
Fire / Life Safety systems
When it comes to your family’s safety, not all threats are external. It's essential to have systems in place to protect you from issues inside the home. This should include smoke, heat, and gas detectors that link up to your smart security system. Receive an immediate alert if heat or smoke detectors notice a fire in your home. Know immediately of less noticeable gas leaks that could become severe problems within minutes. You can even use the rest of your smart home automation system to protect your family. Your thermostat can turn off to avoid fueling a fire while lights turn on and doors unlock for easy evacuation.
Other environmental factors can also play a significant impact. Have sensors in place that can gauge water, temperature and humidity levels. Water sensors should be in flood-prone areas by pumps, washing machines, and sinks. If your security system detects abnormally high water or moisture levels, it immediately alerts you via email or push notifications. In some cases, it can even automatically turn off your water supply to avoid any major damage. In cold weather, temperature sensors can help you prevent frozen pipes that can burst and lead to significant flooding.
One of the biggest benefits of a smart security system is being able to access it anytime. Through a mobile or desktop app, you can always check in on your system to view surveillance, review access logs, lock doors, and even change security codes. Your system proactively alerts you via text or email when there's suspicious activity. You get to decide what that suspicious activity entails. It can range from someone breaching your property perimeter to someone opening the door to your wine cellar. Add 24/7 professional monitoring from a central security station that can alert you and authorities in case of a fire, burglary, or even medical emergency.
