Everyone needs a system from renters to home owners, Smart Home Security Systems doesn’t only give you piece of mind but convenience to your peoples busy lifestyles.
Transitioning to a smarter home can improve your control over every aspect of how your house operates, and increase the safety and accessibility of it as well. Additionally, you can reap the benefits of a more efficient home, leading to savings in your energy and upkeep costs!
Your Home Is Always On
Our home security technology is for more than emergencies. Traditional security systems only work if you remember to arm the system and someone tries to break in, which is not often, and are also prone to false alarms. A Smart Home Security system works for you all the time. It keeps you aware of what’s happening at home with real-time text or email alerts, even when disarmed. Alerts can tell you when your teenager arrives home from school, when a door or window is left open too long, or a drawer containing valuables is opened.
When an emergency happens, Smart Home Security systems have you covered. First, notifications are immediately sent to the central station so emergency personal can respond whether it’s a break-in, fire or medical emergency. Notifications can also be sent directly to your smartphone to let you know about a potential break-in, safeguarding you from walking into a bad situation or letting you identify a false alarm.
Our Smart Home Security systems offer better security through improved technology. Our dedicated cellular connection s protect against common vulnerabilities of traditional systems, like cutting the telephone or broadband cable from the outside of the home, which renders a traditional system useless. This ensures a secure, tamper-proof connection to emergency services.
A cellular connection also enables Crash and Smash protection, a unique feature of the Alarm.com system. This helps combat the common practice of intruders trying to disable a system by smashing the panel with a hammer before it can send an alarm signal. Thanks to our dedicated cellular connection and patented technology, our service will send an alert even if the panel gets smashed.
Wireless Makes It Easier to Use
Smart Home Security systems are wireless, which makes every aspect of owning them easier. Staying aware and protecting your property is simple and intuitive. Wireless video cameras and image sensors can be quickly integrated into your system for an additional layer of security and awareness. With everything connected though the Alarm.com mobile app, it’s easy to use, and you can see what’s happening at home through your smart phone or tablet anytime.
Unlike standalone connected devices or home automation kits, our Smart Home Security systems are rigorously built to life safety and professional security standards. They’re installed and supported by professional service providers, with a connection to a 24/7 monitoring station and emergency response.
There’s no substitute for a professional taking action to keep your home and family safe when there’s an emergency. Whether it’s a break-in or a fire alarm, you’ll know that help is on the way even if you’re unavailable.
A big challenge for traditional home security systems was homeowners forgetting to arm the system. Once you left the house, arming it was impossible. Smart Home Security systems eliminate that problem by providing ‘anywhere’ access and control though the smartphone app. You can arm the system from anywhere and it will send you a reminder if you forget. And, when you integrate connected locks and garage doors with your system, you can completely secure your home from anywhere.
It Makes Your Whole Home Smart
As well as keeping you safe and secure, there’s another huge benefit to Smart Home Security: it gives you the foundation of a complete Smart Home. You can add a smart thermostat, smart lighting, video cameras, connected garage doors – the list keeps growing. Because everything runs on Alarm.com’s Smart Home Security platform, you can control every device from a single app – giving you a true Smart Home that makes life safer, smarter and more efficient.
While many benefits of a smart home include ease and accessibility, there are even more perks to enjoy. Smart home technology allows appliances to work with the least amount of energy needed. For example, induction cook-top stoves now have the intelligence to heat exclusively when a metal pan is placed on top of it. No more burners running uncovered, and no more pans being overheated. Stove tops can even manage a perfect boil while using the least amount of energy possible.
Saving money on that water bill has also never been easier. Certain faucet technology can maximize shower water usage by shaping the individual droplets of water to create a more full and fulfilling shower experience while still using less water than the everyday shower head.
If “going green” wasn’t enough to pique your interest in smart home technology, the financial savings will get your attention. In a study done by the US Environmental Protection Agency, it was reported that users of smart home technology for thermostat control alone saved anywhere from 10%-30% on their energy bill. Over the course of a year, or 5 years, those savings add up quickly.
Saving money with smart home technologies is simple and easy. Timers and monitors make sure you only use the money and energy you want, and incredibly intelligent occupation detectors insure these products are only active when users are present.
To further your savings, the addition of solar power or other energy transmuting devices can save costs, and help you become more self-sufficient.
Not only do these improvements save on your bill payments, the resale value of your home increases with each addition of these technologies. It may be a chunk of change up front, but these additions soon pay for themselves.
