Learn more about these necessary upgrades by continuing to read on below.
Upgraded Surveillance Keeps You in the Know
When you can take a look at every area and corner of your home from anywhere in the world, you stop stressing over what’s happening while you’re not there. With top-notch surveillance cameras in place throughout your property, you can check in on your house right from your own smartphone even if you’re halfway across the globe.
With just a press of a button, you can pan, zoom, and tilt your cameras to catch and scan every part of your property. Watch captured footage in real-time or save videos to your phone or device to view later. Installing motion sensors on your property can also alert your cameras to film certain areas where suspicious movement is detected – and you’ll instantly get a notification sent to your phone so that you assess the situation.
Upgrading your surveillance system gives you eyes on your property at all times so that you can sleep soundly and enjoy time away from home without worrying.
Smart Locks Tighten Security
If you’re leaving on a family trip or vacation, you might have a friend drop by to check on your pets or water your plants. But did you know there is an even more secure way to guarantee your home’s protection than handing out spare keys? The answer is smart locks.
With smart locks installed on all your doors, you can give friends and family a code to enter your home while you’re away. This works great for friends dropping by or even for when your kids get home from school before you’ve left work. And if you don’t want to give a code out, your system can send you a surveillance video of who is at your door, and you can then unlock it for the person from your smartphone.
And adding smart locks to interior doors can keep guests out of certain rooms when you’re hosting a party or can prevent children from getting into areas of the house while you’re gone. It’s that easy to set up a customized secure home.
Smart Alarms Prevent Damage
Besides having a burglary alarm that works with your motion sensors that can detect broken windows or doors, did you know other smart alarms can also prevent expensive and sometimes irreversible damage to your property? Smart alarms can detect smoke, fire, carbon monoxide, and flooding and will take action before anything can get out of hand.
The second your system detects smoke or notes that water levels are abnormal, you will receive a notification to your phone that lets you know about the situation and calls the authorities immediately if you set it up to do so. Now you won’t have to arrive back to a demolished home or a badly water-damaged basement.
And when you are home, knowing these smart alarms are in place can relieve you of any worries about your family’s safety at night or during any part of the day.
