Surveillance Cameras

Surveillance cameras are the backbone of your home security system, and today’s leading brands offer a whole lot more than you may think. What do we mean by that? Smart cameras include self-learning analytics, which allow for the automated analysis of live footage and detection of possible threats. That’s a lot of hours of footage you no longer have to go through. 

Smart Door Locks 

Smart door locks can be as smart and sophisticated as you need them to be, and they always work best when integrated with other technology systems by a professional

Imagine there is someone at the front door. Your phone just alerted you to their presence, and you are now checking the live footage from the porch camera. It’s your kid. They lost their backpack, along with the phone and keys. You ask if they are ok through the video doorbell, and unlock the door with just a tap on your phone. Just to be sure, you also lock the door right behind them. A somewhat similar scenario would be an urgent delivery arriving while you are on vacation; you could lock and unlock the door for a trusted driver with a screen tap and instruct them on where to leave the package. 

Sensors & Alarms 

In a way, alarms and motion sensors are your first line of defense against crime, alerting you of potential threats through real-time notifications. Paired with cameras and with the support of smart locks, they will keep your home safe and protected whether you are there or not. 

Integrating lights, shades, and motion sensors allows your smart home to respond effectively when it detects a threat. For example, when an intruder triggers a sensor, the shades will roll up and the front porch lights turn on, creating the impression that someone is inside. Or, we could automate the shades to roll up and down at random intervals throughout the day, adding a layer of safety when you are away for extended periods of time.
