Integrate These Devices to Improve Your Home Security System
Secure Your Family in the New Year with Automated Technology
Home security is a difficult topic to think about. After all, everyone wants a secure home, and no one like to think of a potential threat to your safety. But, never fear, a little preparation will go a long way for you and your family. If you’re ready to update your home’s security system for 2019, you came to the right place.
Automation technology helps you stay safe by linking the home security system with other devices in your home, giving you greater protection as well as control. Want to learn about some devices that can give your home security system a boost? Read on to learn more.
SMART LOCKS AND DOORBELLS
The most obvious place to start with an automated home security system is the gateway to your home; the doors. Smart locks and doorbells secure your home in better, more flexible ways than traditional locks and keypads.
For example, instead of hiding a key in a nearby plant, you can create a code to let guests or visitors inside your home when you are way. Your system will send an alert to your phone to let you know they’ve arrived, and then simply lock the door behind them when they leave.
These devices also prove useful when you’re at home as well. If you’re in your basement, upstairs or another area away from your front door, it’s an inconvenience to physically go and let someone in. With a smart lock and doorbell system, watch a video feed of your entryway, talk to them, and let them in remotely.
Outdoor lighting control not only makes it easier to entertain at home, it can also be an invaluable security tool. Program your lights to turn on or off at sunset and sunrise or set them on an automated schedule depending on your working hours. You can program them to come on even when you’re not home to help deter potential intruders. Your lights also are programmed to respond to the presence of your phone, so when you get home they turn on for you.
CAMERAS AND SENSORS
If you want to take a more proactive approach to home security, a system of cameras and sensors are an effective supplement to an existing network.
There are many different types, sizes and models of cameras, depending on your needs and how much you want to pay. HD cameras now come with, automatic tracking and face-recognition technology, night-vision capabilities, built-in storage, or free online back-ups.
Motion sensors are an effective anti-intruder deterrent as well, and smoke and fire sensors are useful to make sure you’re covered from potential house fires. All of these devices send alerts to your phone to make sure you’re notified about everything that’s happening.
That’s just the beginning of how automation elevates the security system of your home. To find out more, call Twilight Solutions at (925) 525-6105 or visit our website.
