6 Ways a Home Security System Provides Peace of Mind for Your Family

February 7, 2019 by

Feeling safe and secure in your home is a basic right that everyone deserves. Having a home security system offers the safety, security, and peace of mind that is crucial for families and individuals alike. Home security systems are the way of the future; by creating a custom home security system, you can ensure your family will be alerted instantly in the event of an emergency. You could also install comprehensive home automation services, so you can operate your security system from the convenience of your laptop, smartphone, or mobile device. Here are six ways that a home security system can keep your family safe and provide them with peace of mind:

Benefits of home security system

1.Intruder alerts

Home security systems often start with an alarm system that will alert your family and the proper authorities if someone tries to break into your home. Once the system is armed, no one will be able to open your front door, back door, or windows without setting off the alarm, preventing an intruder from entering your home unnoticed. In the event of a break-in, the alarm will sound, alerting both your family and the police or a private security company. You can even get two-way emergency voice services. If an emergency occurs, a security team will contact you immediately and walk you through the necessary steps to ensure you and your family are safe and secure.

2.Home automation

Beyond the simple alarm system, there are several home automation options that can be paired with your security system. By automating the lighting in your home, you will have complete control of which lights are on and off, even when you are not home. Our app-based control panel allows you to turn your lights on and off by room, from the convenience of your cell phone or another device. When you go on vacation, you can program your lights to function on a timer, giving the illusion that someone is home and preventing burglars from seeing your home as an easy target.

3.Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms

Burglars and intruders are not the only worries that a home security system can solve. You can also integrate smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors into your alarm system, so your family will be alerted instantly if there is any danger. Not only will the alarm wake your family and make sure you are aware of the emergency, but a security professional will also be on the line with you and the necessary first-responders within just a few seconds.

4.Video monitoring

Video monitoring systems give you the opportunity to install cameras throughout the interior and exterior of your home and view the feeds on your computer or mobile device. Home security cameras are an excellent way to detect intruders on your property, and with a monitoring system that records and stores your footage, you can provide it to the authorities as evidence, if necessary. You can even use video cameras inside your home to keep an eye on your children or pets. Many parents use this system even when the babysitter is home; it is a reliable, efficient way to check in on your children and make sure everything is fine. This simple act offers parents the peace of mind they need to enjoy their night out.

5.Child-proofing

Child-proofing is also an important aspect of home security. From automated locks to motion sensors in your backyard or around your pool, there are a variety of tools that can be used to ensure your children are safe in your home and yard. An automated locking system makes it so doors cannot be unlocked and opened without the code, so your toddler won’t be able to wander outside by himself. Motion sensors can be placed in high-risk areas and connected to your video monitoring system or mobile app, so you receive an instant alert if a sensor is triggered. Should your child fall in your pool, you can react immediately. For added peace of mind, these systems can be paired with a call centre, so you will receive a call when a motion sensor is triggered. A professional will then walk you through the emergency and any steps that must be taken to ensure your safety.

6.Track energy consumption

Although this is less about your family’s immediate safety and more about the environment, the ability to track energy consumption will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing exactly how much energy you are using. This means you will know exactly how much your hydro and utility bills are, so there are no surprises when the bill comes in. Most home automation systems offer comprehensive tracking of your energy consumption. You can also automate your lighting and thermostat so you can control the lights and temperature of your home from your phone. This means you can reduce energy waste while making your home feel more comfortable. By keeping track of your energy consumption, you can find ways to reduce your environmental footprint, which will result in significant savings on your utility bills and help protect the environment.
