1. Smart, High-Definition Outdoor Cameras
Gone are the days of old surveillance cameras that took grainy images and were nothing more than camcorders. Those old relics don’t belong on your property. Today’s cameras deliver high-definition video, and they have AI-powered face and object recognition abilities. In fact, they can actually tell the difference between a dog or man, a car or bike, and a friendly face or stranger. Best of all, they capture clear images – almost like you’re watching TV.
2. Motion Sensors That Capture Every Move
You can’t keep all eyes on your property 24/7. Or can’t you? The latest motion sensors and cameras won’t miss a thing even while you’re asleep or away from home. They have ranges of 30 feet and much farther. If someone breaches an invisible perimeter, you’ll know it. You can create certain rules to avoid false alerts like pet movement, too. When an actual incident happens, you receive an immediate mobile alert from your system.
3. Take Complete Control of Home Security
Your Control4 or Savant smart home system gives you full control of your indoor and outdoor cameras, motion sensors, smart doors and locks, video doorbells, and much more. Bet your old security system can’t do that! Whether you’re in bed, watching a movie in your home theater, or miles away on vacation, you can access the system via a smartphone app, as well as make adjustments when needed.
4. See Who’s at the Door
Why get up to answer the door? Your video doorbell lets you see who’s there, talk to them, and even let them in (if you have an access control system with smart locks). When the doorbell rings or a motion sensor alerts you to someone at the door, simply touch an icon on your app or tablet to chat with the visitor. In addition, you don’t have to be home to do it. Being able to communicate with a person helps to give your home the appearance of occupancy if the visitor is someone you don’t know.
5. 24-Hour Indoor Surveillance
Don’t be afraid of things that go “bump” in the night. Check on your kids and every square inch of your home using your smartphone or tablet. Indoor surveillance cameras give you peace of mind because they keep watch of everything while you sleep. Today’s indoor cameras are sleek-looking and offer excellent night vision features as well. You’ll clearly see video of all the activities in every room.
6. Mobile Security Alerts to Your Phone
Intruders can’t simply “cut the line” to circumvent your security system. Most smart home security systems use hardwired and wireless sensors that trigger alerts if any tampering occurs. So, if you leave a door or window open (or someone tries to open it), your smart security system lets you know about it. You’ll receive text alerts when it happens. That way, you can address the issue immediately on your phone remotely.
