The summer is almost upon us and if recent weather is any indication of what’s to come, it will be an absolute beauty. Whether you’re staying local or heading abroad, Smart Home Solutions can keep your home secure so you don’t have to worry while soaking up the sun.
With so many features Smart Home Security can help break-in prevention without having to go to Kevin McCallister level of creativity and effort.
Here are some tips on how you can properly secure your home to reduce the likelihood of your home being burgled.
- Never ever leave windows and door open while you’re away. Even if you’re popping to the local shop for some milk, you should always ensure that any entrances are securely locked. Our Smart Home package includes window and door sensors, which notify you the instant any of your windows and doors have been opened.
- Us Irish have a habit of leaving keys outside the home, under bins, flower pots..anywhere! While we may believe that no harm will come of it, leaving keys outside is like giving a dog a bone. Burglars will spend time looking if they think they can get away with it. So, never keep keys outside, or invest in smart locks which gives you control over who can and can’t access your home.
- Lighting, lighting, lighting. If there is one major sign that noone is home it’s a house blanketed in darkness. If you’re heading out for the evening make sure to leave a light or two on to give the illusion that someone is home. Smart lighting can integrate with the Smart Home Security package, causing lights to switch on automatically the moment a sensor is triggered.
- A little fact about burglars – they don’t like cameras. Research has shown that cameras are effective at keeping burglars at bay. They just don’t want to risk getting caught. Smartzone provide a range of cameras for indoor, outdoors and even video doorbells so you can see who is at your front door.
- Arm your alarm! An obvious one, but a staggering number of alarm owners fail to arm their alarms regularly. Our app notifies you if you have failed to set your alarm allowing you to set it directly from your phone.

Yes, it may be appealing to purchase that outdoor camera online from that Chinese company coz it’s a little cheaper. However, our products are supplied by a trusted American Smart Home provider, Alarm.com, meaning that they are of high quality. We also offer an annual check on all products, and if you are having any issues with products before the check we will be out to you to sort the problem as soon as we can.

Lifetime warranty on products
Unlike the products you pick up from your nearest tech shop, our products come with a lifetime warranty. If any of our products are acting up we will be on call on 021 4966248 and will either fix the problem remotely or get an engineer out to you to fix at a time that suits you.
Subsidise equipment cost
We understand that for the majority of our customers it may be easier to pay a monthly fee rather than a greater upfront fee. With a lower installation fee the equipment price is subsidised each month in the monthly fee. It’s not similar to a PCP plan with a new car.
Cheaper than competitors
When it comes to security we are cheaper than some of our Irish competitors. We are even €10 cheaper per month than one of Ireland’s most known security companies (we won’t say who…)

We get asked multiple times online and in our Douglas Showrooms about security cameras. Most people are curious as they don’t already know much about the cameras or are stuck on making a decision as to which one to choose.
Here at Smartzone we provide a variety of cameras to suit different needs. We offer HD cameras. Wide-angle cameras. 1080p cameras with night vision. Indoor, outdoor and doorbell cameras!
There is so much to consider when choosing a camera, but you must remember it’s not just about the camera but about the platform too.
Our cameras, and the rest of our products, are supplied by a trusted American Smart Home Company, Alarm.com. As Alarm.com provide the products and app which they are controlled on, it means that you can control and view what is happening in your home from the one place. So, video alerts and customization options all happen through the app.
Our cameras come fully integrated into our platform and app through your smart home security system. As well as best-in-class hardware, they give you advanced video features, extra home security benefits, and an easy, professionally-supported experience.
1: View what’s is happening from anywhere, anytime.
Investigating a strange noise you heard outside, or just greeting some unexpected visitors, the app makes things so much more simple.
The app lets you stream from any of your security cameras straight to your smartphone, tablet or desktop. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, you can view what’s happening if your alarm goes off. You can then verify or cancel the alarm signal – all from the same screen.
Cloud storage with the app ensures that you can watch recorded footage, download and even share as you please.
2: Stay in the know with intelligent clips and alerts.
The motion detector feature on security cameras can become a nuisance when you’re receiving notification after notification.
However, Smartzone’s security system intelligence means that our cameras understand what is going on. It gives you the power to customize alerts, so you can turn off all alerts from indoor cameras for when your system is disarmed.
Setting up triggered video alerts is just another clever feature of our security cameras. For example, if you want to make sure the kids got home from school on time an alert can be set so you will receive a video clip from the hallway camera when the front door is unlocked.
3: Get better crime prevention features.
Cameras not only act as a deterrent, but also work with your other security features including smart locks so you can ensure your home is locked to keep it safe, or even unlocked to allow access to delivery men or neighbours.
4: Professional installation and support makes it easy.
Have you ever installed security cameras?
When you purchase with Smartzone, you can rest assure that your camera system will be professionally installed. Our installers are also on hand to show you how everything works and ensure that you feel comfortable with the system before they leave.
If you ever have any issues, one of our team will call out to your house, at a time that suits you and resolve any issues the camera may be having.
This is just one of the major reasons why to choose Smart Home as a Service.
How to get a Smartzone Video Monitoring system?
Smartzone offer CCTV solutions as an add on to our security package. For more information on Smart Home Security check out our website or call us on 021 4966248.
Typical traditional Security systems only alert you when they go off. Unlike these, Smartzone’s security system monitors the activity across your home’s sensors 24/7, whether your system is armed or not. This means your system can be useful in emergency and non-emergency events.
Smartzone’s security products send signal from the alarm over a dedicated secure cellular connection for the quick and reliable communication.
If the alarm is set off all listed contacts will be alerted. In the case of an emergency, such as a break in, the Gardaí will be notified.
Non-emergency alerts are processed and sent out based on the rules that you define. For example, you may choose to get an alert when the front door opens after 4pm so you know your child is home from school.
All alerts are sent to your phone or tablet via the app where you can also live feed video if you decide to add cameras to your security bundle.
For more information on our security bundle call us on 021 4966248 or fill out our contact form and one of our customer representatives will contact you.
