Each year, more and more people are relying on smart devices as part of their home security set-up. Why? The advancements in the various systems offer more benefits than you may think. Smart home security can help protect your family and belongings, and when coupled with home automation, smart home security makes life much simpler.
Whether by increasing the chances of a burglar getting caught or, even more preferably, deterring them in the first place, there are a range of gadgets that can be of significant benefit to you. As the experts in the field, the SMARTHOMEWORKS team have detailed some of them for you here. Read on to learn these benefits and how smart home security can integrate well with your other smart home devices.
A monitorable security system that is on 24/7
Unfortunately, criminals do not stick to a nine-to-five workday. For this reason, you need around the clock security for your home. With a wireless system that is both transportable and straightforward to set up, it is quick and easy to install a unit that will watch over your home and family around the clock.
Many systems are very intuitive and can track behaviours, sending you an alert via text message when there is an issue. This means you can keep an eye on your home, no matter where you are (even if you are overseas!).
Save money on insurance
When considering the cost of a smart home security system, be sure to take into account the money it can save you! Most insurance companies offer a discount if you have a modern, smart home security system in your home. If you have a good quality system that you keep for many years, the initial set-up cost gets cheaper every time you pay that slightly lower premium!
Insurance companies understand that your smart home security system means a reduced chance of fire, water damage, theft and more, and they reward you with lower prices as a result.
The dollar savings continue
While your insurance premium is one example of a cost savings benefit from smart home security, the thousands of dollars saved by preventing a robbery or property damage is another. Further to this; you’ll also save money on your utility bill as a smart home security system uses less energy than a traditional security system.
This is actually a fact that is amplified across all smart home automation systems, especially those that control your heating and cooling. Home automation can control when to turn on and off lights, temperature settings and a range of other power-saving controls.
Improved communication with the authorities
In-wall or tabletop touch screens offer high-quality, instant communication, with audio and high-definition video, the likes of which we haven’t seen in the home before.
You can quickly get a message from one touch screen to another in a different room, quickly contact the police should a burglar attempt to break-in and generally improve communication within and out of the home. With text alerts and automatic notifications, the amount of time between a possible break-in or fire and contacting the relevant emergency service is minimised greatly.
The peace of mind this creates makes a smart home security system a near priceless investment. The primary reason why people are heading down the smart device path is convenience and protection in one. The safety of your family, belongings, and self is made easy with this tech, meaning you can relax and sleep a little better at night.
