An automated security system is an excellent investment for your house. It makes your home at least ten times more secure, boosts the value of your property, and can help you lower your insurance premiums. Here’s a list of the smart devices you’ll need for your security system:
Standalone, web-enabled security cameras are the most important part of your security system… because they allow you to monitor your house 24/7 from anywhere in the world. You can check on your kids while you’re at work, and you can make sure your home is safe when you’re on vacation. All you need is an internet connection and a smartphone.
These special locks can work as a part of your home automation security system, or they can work “alone.” As long as you have a smartphone, you can open and close your door at any time… no need to be at home. Also, if someone needs to go to your house (your family, babysitter, or petsitter), you can simply create an access code for them, and they’ll be able to get in even if you’re thousands of miles away.
These devices detect motion and body heat, and are the perfect partner for your security cameras. If any intruder breaks into your home (without triggering window or door sensors), the motion detectors will instantly alert you. However, keep in mind your pets can trigger motion detectors…so it may be a wise decision to buy higher-end motion sensors.
Door & Window Sensors
Nowadays, you can find sensors designed to alert your security system whenever doors (and windows) have been opened… or water suddenly appears in a place where there shouldn’t be any water. They can alert you to breaking glass. Besides, these sensors can trigger your security cameras to start recording. You can also program your security system to sound the alarms, send you a text message, or even call the local authorities.
Federal Law requires smoke detectors placed around your house. When smoke (or carbon monoxide) starts invading your home, your smoke detectors will sound the alarms, and your security system will automatically call the fire department.
A Key Fob is a small device that gives you complete, unrestricted access to your security system. It’s similar to those clickers you get with your car (and they perform the same functions). When your smartphone runs out of battery, you can use your key fob to get into your home, call your monitoring service provider, or even disable your home automation security system.
The control panel is the brain of your security system. It literally transforms all your smart devices into a complete, life-like system. The control panel monitors the activity of your security cameras, motion detectors, door & window sensors, smoke detectors, and smart locks… and when any of these devices is triggered, your control panel will immediately notify you, your monitoring company, and the local authorities (police and fire departments).
