Safeguard Your Atherton, CA Home From Potential Threats
How safe is your home? If someone is trespassing on your property, do you have a security system in place to alert you? If there’s a natural disaster while you’re away, do you have any way to check on your home? FBI data released last year showed that among the 20 most populated cities in the country, San Francisco had the highest per-capita rate of property crime. That crime spreads outward to nearby cities like San Mateo and Atherton, which is why you want to have a home security system that protects your home from these criminals with surveillance cameras and automatic locks and sensors. In this blog, we look at how smart technology can give you peace of mind by helping you stop criminal threats and giving you a clear plan of action in the case of a fire, flood, or earthquake.
Criminals trespassing on your property and breaking into your home are a major cause for concern with luxury properties, but you can create a fortified security perimeter with smart security technology. Set up motion sensors around your property that immediately activate landscape lights if human movement is detected, along with an audio warning that authorities have been notified of the intruder. This will also lock all of your doors and send you an alert so you know someone unauthorized is trying to get onto your property. From the same app, you’ll be able to check surveillance cameras so you know exactly what is happening without putting yourself in danger.
As we get more items delivered to our homes, there are more opportunities to steal these items right from your front porch. Security cameras can help you monitor your porch, but you don’t want to be watching a video feed all day. Control4’s Intercom Anywhere technology allows you to directly communicate with delivery people through a video intercom, and once you’ve verified their identity, you can unlock the door so they can leave packages safely inside your home. Once the delivery is complete, lock the door again to keep your home secure.
We never know what mother nature is going to throw our way, and after last year’s devastating wildfires, it’s important to be prepared for any type of natural disaster. In the case of an evacuation, it can be very scary wondering if your home is protected while you’re gone, but you can keep an eye on your property with smart security cameras. If you need to get out of your house quickly or need emergency responders to get in, you can unlock all your doors automatically to facilitate quick movement. In the case of a flood, there are automated water valves available that will stop your water so that the problem isn’t exacerbated.
