Smart Home Security System Essentials

Where Security Meets the Tools of Modern Technology

If you’re away from home, who’s watching your property? A neighbor? Or if you have a security system, is it only equipped with alarms and cameras? 

To know your home and family is fully protected, it might be time to install a fully automated smart security system. There is absolutely no substitute for an integrated high-tech system with night vision, dedicated cellular connections, smart locks, AI cameras, motion sensors, and professional monitoring. Even the craftiest of burglars would find it difficult to gain entry into your home or go undetected. 

With a smart home security system, you can rest assured that your residence in Washington, DC, is fully protected.

State-of-the-Art Technology Ensures Total Security

Surveillance cameras have reached a new level of sophistication. Not only will they be able to record video of visitors to your property, but they can also detect the faces of certain people. 

These home security cameras have artificial intelligence technology that can recognize the faces of your family, and when programmed can disarm your system to let your kids in when they come home from school.

Home automation security devices also feature cameras with motion detectors that are hidden inside your doorbell. These can be installed in any doorway and once someone approaches an entrance, you’ll receive an alert to your smartphone or laptop where you can watch a live video feed of the visitor.

Through a two-way audio system, you can then speak with them if you choose, and if they happen to be a contractor, you can remotely disarm the system from your phone, granting them access. Or if you wanted to secure a delivery instead of having it left on the porch, you could instruct a delivery person to leave the package inside and rearm the system once they have left.

Automated monitoring systems also send you alerts to your smartphone to let you know if you’ve left a door unlocked, the garage door open, or forgot to your arm system. You can then use your smartphone app to lock the doors, arm the system, and close the garage.

A Monitoring Service Adds Extra Protection to Your Home Automation

If you want an even greater sense of security, your surveillance system can be connected to a monitoring station that is manned 24 hours a day by a team of security professionals.

If an intruder does happen to make their way onto your property, the best chances you have of apprehending them is working with a security team that can immediately alert the authorities.

In certain scenarios where you might be away on vacation and you’re out of the service area, or if you lose your phone or have it turned off, then having a group monitoring your smart home security devices is definitely a great backup plan.
