3 Reasons to Incorporate Security and Surveillance Features in Your Smart Home
Protect Your Family with a Custom Integrated Solution
When people opt to include smart technology in their homes, they're typically interested in enhancing efficiency, comfort, and safety. This is why many of our custom solutions include a variety of security and surveillance features that could help you keep your family safe. From remote access to surveillance footage to lighting control, we highlight some of these tools in our latest blog. Keep reading to find out some ways you can use smart technology to better protect your home in Tustin, CA and all of Orange County.
Enhance Your Security with Centralized Control
Keep track of everything that's going on in your home with centralized access to all your home technology. From a dedicated touchpad or mobile app, you can manage lights, shades, surveillance, and locks. Make sure that landscape lighting is on to avoid dangerous unlit areas in your home or close the shades in your bedroom to protect your privacy. You can do it all without having to get up from the couch.
Keep Tabs on Your Home When You’re On the Go
Perhaps the biggest benefit of incorporating a surveillance solution into your home automation system is accessing it remotely. Whether you’re at work or on vacation, you can pull up an app to see live surveillance footage at any time. Browse room by room to see what your kids are up to if they’re back from school or simply to see if everything is as you left it. Use the same app to adjust lights, shades, and locks as needed to keep your home protected at all times.
Optimize Security with an Integrated Solution
The truth about smart home control is that none of your subsystems ever actually stay in their lane. Your security and surveillance systems benefit from partnering with some of your other technology. Below we highlight two of the most common examples:
- Lighting Control: Having a well-lit home is integral to your family’s safety, so it’s no surprise that lighting control and security and surveillance systems often work hand-in-hand. For example, if there’s unwanted activity in your backyard your landscape lighting automatically turns on. This will let intruders know that you’re watching and also help you get better surveillance footage. •
- Motorized Window Shades: Your smart shading solution also helps to protect your home and privacy. At the end of the day, pull up a “Good Night” scene that automatically locks all doors, turns off lights, closes shades, and activates your alarm. You can also use ‘Vacation' scenes to make your home look occupied while you're away. Shades close and open throughout the day to simulate activity, so thieves aren't tempted to target your empty home.
