Every homeowner wants a secure home. Nobody wants their home to be invaded by burglars, robbers, or other intruders. But to ensure your home is safe, you may need to install smart home automation systems. When you install these systems, you not only prevent intruders from invading your home, but you’ll also prevent hazards that may endanger the health of your family.
Here are four security-proven features you want to install in your home:
If you want to control your home and know whatever is going on in it when you’re in the house or away, you need a video doorbell. These doorbells have visuals of up to 1080p HD and can allow you to zoom up to 5x from your smartphone. Their motion sensors also tell you when somebody is at the door. Most importantly, you can download the videos to watch later.
The technology used to create video doorbells also allows you to hear, see, and talk with guests. It’s perfect for giving instructions to delivery people when you’re not around. If you have little kids with a babysitter, you can work all night peacefully, knowing that you can view everything going on in the house. Every time somebody uses the doorbell, it’ll send you alerts on your phone.
Glass Break Sensors
These sensors are part of the home alarm system and help you keep at bay intruders trying to get into your house by breaking window or glass doors. You can fix them on ceilings and walls that are near windows. When you activate their LED lights, they’ll detect sounds within a 20-inch circumference.
The best thing about these sensors is that they’ll remain active even if the AMP system is in “away” or “stay” mode. That means you’ll have peace of mind 24 hours a day.
You shouldn’t only protect your home from break-ins and robbery but also flooding. If you’re living in an area prone to flooding, you need to have flood sensors. Install these sensors in high-risk water damage areas like basements, kitchens, and bathrooms.
In the event of a water leak or flood, the sensors will alert you. They do this by sending messages to the AMP smart panel or your phone. Detecting floods early enough will enable you to take the appropriate measures before it’s too late.
To be honest, knowing the number of times you lock your doors as you leave your house is difficult. Worse still, it’s even more challenging to eliminate the uneasy feeling that comes with knowing that your door isn’t properly locked.
You can prevent yourself from more worries by installing smart locks on your doors. These locks will enable you to monitor your entries through your smartphone even if you’re away. The advantage of using them is that they even allow you to unlock and lock your doors remotely. With them, you don’t need to worry whether you left your doors open or locked because you’re in charge.
If your budget is flexible, you may add some geofencing features to the automation system. These will allow you to program your doors to unlock or lock every time you enter or leave a certain radius of your home.
With intruders always looking for the next home to break into, it’s not safe to live in a house without security systems. Fortunately, technology has led to the creation of systems that give full control of your home even when you’re away. Using them will ensure your home is secure at all times.
