Home Security Systems – What You Need to Know and Why
We all want to protect our homes the best we can. Smart home technology makes home security easier than ever before. Smartzone offers everything you need for home monitoring and peace of mind.
Why Should You Care About Home Security?
In an emergency, every second is precious. A home security system provides a way to know what is happening at home from wherever you are. It can give you peace of mind when you’re away, and it can be a lifesaver in the event of an emergency. Home security systems come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s one to fit every budget.
There are two main types of home security systems; monitored and unmonitored. Smartzone provides both 24/7 professional monitoring services. Let’s look at monitored vs unmonitored security.
Monitored VS Unmonitored Systems
Your smart home security devices constantly communicate with the Smart Home Panel. However, there is a difference between monitored and unmonitored home security systems.
Unmonitored Home Security Systems
Usually, a home security system only alerts you when a sensor sounds an alarm when the system is armed. While this is useful for when you are out and about, it only works when you remember to arm the system before leaving.
Monitored Home Security Systems
Smartzone monitors the activity across all your sensors whether or not they are armed. Your system is useful in emergency and non-emergency situations.
When an alarm goes off, you and your listed contacts receive a notification. In the event of a break in, the Gardaí also receive a notification. Alarm signals travel over a secure cellular connection for immediate and reliable alerts.
What about non-emergencies that you still want to know about? With Smartzone home security, alerts go out based on the parameters you set. For example, you could choose to get alerts when the front door opens after 6 pm when the children will be home with a babysitter.
What Is a Smart Home Security System?
A smart home is a home where products can communicate with one another and funnel all the information to your home panel or smartphone app. Life is easier with a remotely controlled home system where all components interact intelligently.
A smart home security system allows you to keep a close watch over your home from anywhere. The Smart Home Panel also communicates with the app so you can monitor all your home security products from your phone or tablet.
How Do House Alarms Work and Are They Effective?
Not all house alarms are equally effective. Wireless smart security systems are more effective than traditional wired alarm systems.
A wired alarm typically comes with a wall-mounted keypad that arms the system when you enter a code. If the system is monitored you’ll get an emergency response. But many traditional wired systems sound the alarm with no one there to hear or respond. That sort of system is not useful at all.
Smart house alarms send alerts right to your phone or tablet when an alarm goes off. Smartzone packages like the Award Winning Smart Home Security Bundle contain door and window sensors, motion detectors, and a keypad. However, alerts come to your phone or tablet over a secure cellular connection.
You can set your alarms to arm and disarm at specific times. If any of your sensors show unusual activity, Smartzone professional monitoring jumps into action. First, you will receive an immediate alert. If your phone happens to be off during the alert, your next contact will get an alert. If that notification is not verified, the monitoring station notifies Gardaí to check on your home.
Perhaps you are caring for an ageing loved one. You can add a wireless panic button. The user can press the button for help from family, a caregiver, or emergency services.
Types of Security Cameras
Add a highly effective layer of security to any Smartzone system with security cameras. Keep a closer watch on children, elderly family members, and pets with wireless cameras. You can view your home security cameras with live streaming online from your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop.
Our CCTV cameras are safe and secure. They also deter burglars. You can receive instant video clips when your front door opens, when a motion detectors register something, or when an alarm goes off. You can also set up your system to record video footage when any of these events occur.
Smartzone offers 24/7 HD recording for home video monitoring. Access video clips from anywhere with cloud-based streaming. This way, you can have a record of who came in and out of your home, as well as what time they did so.
Doorbell and Indoor WiFi Cameras
Both of these security cameras feature built-in speakers and microphones. You can speak with visitors and pets at home through the mobile app. Speak to any visitor at your front door while at home or away.
What Are Smart Door Locks?
Wouldn’t it be fantastic to control your door locks from your smartphone? Add smart locks to the Smart Home Security Bundle and control access to your home from anywhere.
Smart locks are wireless door locks that you control remotely. Unlimited digital keys let you grant temporary or permanent access to family, friends, sitters, and service providers. You can set up an alert so you know when a lock is used and who opened it.
With smart door locks, you never have to worry about remembering your key and locking up before you leave home. Set a reminder in the app and use your phone to control your doors.
The sleek and futuristic design of Smartzone smart locks have an elegant look that won’t disrupt the aesthetic of your home.
