Newest Home Security Features

In the past few years, home security systems have improved greatly. They are easier and cheaper than ever to set up, install and monitor. They also have more features available than ever before. This article reviews some of the newest trends in home security.

Cellular monitoring. Older security systems used to be wired to your phone landline. Later, they were wired to internet cables. The disadvantage of both of these is that these lines could be cut by thieves or the security service could be interrupted due to problems with the lines due to weather or power problems. This made security systems unreliable. On the other hand, wireless security systems that transfer signals over a secure cellular network are highly reliable. Cellular monitoring does not require a cell phone as the alarm system’s control unit contains the signaling device. Cellular monitoring provides the most reliable signal, which is what you want for your safety and your family’s safety.

Video. Video monitoring allows you to see what’s going on in your house. You can access live streaming video from anywhere you have an internet connection. Usually these cameras are motion-activated and only start recording when something moves. You can access these video clips from many mobile devices or e-mail.

Mobile Apps. Today’s home security systems allow you to operate them from wherever you are. Using a smartphone, laptop or tablet device you can engage or disengage the system, monitor the sensors, and receive video feed. You can also receive alerts from the security monitoring system via e-mail or texts.

Home Automation. Alarm systems are no longer just about preventing break-ins. Today’s alarm systems have features that allow you to control a variety of other features. Thermostats, lights and some appliances can be controlled remotely by the homeowner. These, too, can be controlled from mobile devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets.

DIY security systems. Wireless systems make it easier to install alarm systems yourself. Since you don’t have to drill holes or run wires in walls, a basic system can be up and running in no time with no installation fees. In a basic home security system, sensors are placed in different places around the house. They can detect windows breaking and doors being opened. They can also come with features to detect smoke and water. In addition to being easy to install, DIY wireless home security systems are flexible. Not only can the homeowner move the sensors from room to room, but he can also pack up the system and move it with him to a new home.

Before purchasing a security system, determine what your priorities are and what your budget is. Then, go online to look for the best system for you and your family. Be sure to research features, packages, and prices.
