I hear a lot of people talk about how much they value their home; not just because it’s their property, but because of what’s in it. Many homeowners in Bellevue, WA associate their homes with memories, family, and of course, investments. This is why I believe that a home surveillance system is crucial to any home.
In this blog, I’ll look at the features and benefits of a smart home security system.
Security can mean something different to everyone. I know that for some, it’s simply an alarm system that makes noise when activated and is only heard within the home. There’s a better alternative, though.
Video surveillance monitors your home by way of high-definition cameras. You can install them inside and outside of your home to get a full view of everything going on at any moment. I especially like this technology because it’s more of a proactive approach rather than a passive one.
Here’s what I mean: Surveillance cameras are always keeping watch over your home, and you can access that view from your smartphone or other smart device even when you’re away from your property. Live video streams make around-the-clock-monitoring possible. And you can play it back at a later time, as well.
Here’s another example of a proactive home surveillance system: If an unexpected visitor passes by a window or door, your system can detect that presence and turn on lights (inside or outdoors), send you an alert, close the window shades.
I love that security technology can be integrated into the rest of your smart home for a fully functional solution.
Motion detection is important because it’s preventative. You’ll feel safer in your home if you know that your system can detect an intruder before they actually break in.
Our surveillance systems allow you to monitor them at any time from your smartphone or tablet. You don’t have to be home to hear the alarm go off. Instead, receive an alert as soon as the alarm is triggered or even if the motion detector senses suspicious movement.
You can then check the video footage to see what’s happening in the area. Or access any of the cameras at any time, even if the alarm isn’t triggered, if you just want to check in on the kids, babysitter or general activity around your property.
These are just a few of my favorite features of home surveillance systems when incorporated within a smart home.
