That’s why upgrading your Ocean County, NJ home security system is crucial for this fun season. With smart security and surveillance, you can rest assured that your property is well-protected at all times, even when you’re sun-tanning by the ocean.
So, what are the benefits you can expect with a top-notch system? In this blog dive into three of them below – just keep on reading to find out more.
Check in at Any Time
When you’re far from home, wondering what is going on while you are away might keep you up at night. But with smart surveillance, you can check in on your property no matter where you are – whether it’s down the street or across the globe.
Strategically-placed cameras throughout your whole home and yard can catch any and every movement all over your property. And with the ability to adjust your cameras from your smartphone, you can check out every room and corner. Pan, zoom, and tilt any of your cameras so that you don’t miss a single spot.
If your cameras catch anything, they can send an alert straight to your phone so that you can check out the footage in real time. You can even save videos to view later and possibly show authorities. Motion sensors on your lawn can help distinguish between a false alarm like a rabbit or something more suspicious.
Lock Doors Even If You Forget
Ever leave for a vacation and then think about if you locked every door the entire way there and during your trip? Don’t let your mind stay preoccupied on other things while you’re trying to enjoy your time away.
Smart locks can let you lock any of your doors with ease no matter where you are. You can even let in friends in who are checking on your pets or plants. They can have their own code, or your system can send you a notification and video footage when they’re at your front door– and you can unlock it and lock back up once they’ve left. You’ll keep your property safe and secure with just a press of a button, and with zero hassle.
Fake Being Home
Tying in your smart lighting control and motorized shades to your smart security system is a smart way to have your technology work in tandem. By setting them to a “mockupancy” scene, light turn on and off and shades lower and raise up frequently throughout the day while you’re not home.
But their movement will mimic your regular, everyday routine and fool potential burglars into thinking your house is occupied. Your smart alarms and sensors would alert the police immediately to a burglary, but with this first line of defense – the thieves will stop targeting your house, and you’ll prevent any type of break-in from happening in the first place.
You can now sleep soundly, knowing that your home is in good hands with your smart security system.
