Protect Your Home with Smart Home Security
Automation Can Keep Essex County, NJ families Safe From Robberies, Burglaries and Other Threats
A burglary or robbery is a family’s worst nightmare; in addition to the stolen property and potential physical harm, your sense of security is shattered. This is a situation no one wants to find themselves in. Fortunately, home automation technology can help deter potential intruders and keep your family safe from all manner of threats.
Using a network of cameras and sensors, you can have a 24/7 view of everything happening around your home, all the while knowing you’ll be instantly notified if something should happen. Integrating other automation systems with your security network adds an additional layer of protection. Here are a few ways a smart home security system can protect Essex County, NJ families from burglaries and other threats.
AN EYE IN THE SKY
One of the primary tools in any home security system is surveillance cameras. The ability to see what’s happening around your home is invaluable when it comes to keeping your family safe.
Smart home security systems make cameras even more powerful by giving you 24/7 access to their video feeds, no matter where you are. Using your phone, you can see what the cameras see at any time. When you add features like night vision, video recording and facial recognition technology, security cameras become a much more active tool to prevent crimes from happening. Some cameras are even smart enough to recognize the patterns of your everyday movements and will alert you if any unusual movement is detected.
MAKING SECURITY SIMPLE
We’ve all had moments where we’ve forgotten to arm our security system when we leave home. Most of the time nothing comes of it, but the fact remains that a security system that isn’t armed when you’re not home isn’t going to do you much good.
If you’re the forgetful type or just want some extra reassurance that your system is operating as it should, a smart security system is just what you want. You can reduce the chance of leaving your home with the system unarmed by setting up automated schedules; your system can arm itself after you’ve left for work and then disarm itself when you return.
For a more exact approach, you can use motion sensors to automatically arm your system once you’ve left home. And if you do leave home with the system unarmed, you can activate it remotely from your home. You can also check your system status whenever you want for added peace of mind.
INTEGRATING OTHER SYSTEMS
You can gain additional protection from your smart security system by integrating it with other automation systems you have already installed. This combines the power of multiple systems into something greater than the sum of the parts.
One obvious candidate for integration is a lighting control system. You can program your lights to turn on if your cameras detect something is amiss, which makes for an effective deterrent. You can also use automated schedules to have lights turn on and off in different rooms throughout the day, giving the impression that someone is home to ward off intruders.
