It’s the season for love, and there’s no better way to show your home some love this February than to give it a smart home upgrade. Home control is no small promotion for the average household; it’s a major advancement that makes a home run more efficiently for the benefit of the entire family. Here’s an essential overview of what home control give you.
A REAL-TIME WINDOW INTO THE HOME
When the internet was new, most of us looked at it as our “window on the world.” But now that it’s such a routine part of our lives, what we really need from technology is a window into our own homes – especially when we aren’t able to be in them. With smart home control integrated into your home security system, you can have an instant, real-time window into your home when you aren’t there.
You’ll be able to watch your home security camera footage anytime you want to, and you’ll receive a video alert on your phone when someone is captured on one of your cameras.
USER-FRIENDLY MOBILE APP CONTROL
What’s the number one complaint about new technologies? “It’s not user friendly.” The good news is, home control technology is designed to avoid that complaint entirely by being insightful and intuitive to the user’s needs. For example, it can memorize the behavior patterns in your home so you only get video alerts during unusual times of day (like when everyone is expected to be out of the home for school or work). That’s in addition to the alerts you get when the kids come home in the afternoon, or when the mail arrives. Home control is intuitive enough to deliver the peace of mind you need without unwanted information overload.
MOTION DETECTORS AND SENSORS
Although the traditional home security system has motion sensors, those don’t come close to the power of the motion detectors in a security system that has home control. Motion detection is more intelligent with home control, and that’s in addition to the impact of the smartphone alerts you receive when your motion detectors are triggered. Receiving a mobile alert when a break-in is detected or someone is in a protected area of the home is a powerful thing that enhances the security of your loved ones.
ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD MOBILE ALERTS
Non-intrusion threats are equally critical for you to know about as soon as they become present. Smart home control is designed to help you manage those hazards as well. Of course, we’re talking about fire threats – but we’re also talking about everything from rising water on the floor, to frozen pipes, to deadly carbon monoxide. Home control sends an alert to your phone as soon as those things are present, so you can intervene in whatever way you see fit.
As you can see, smart home control is a serious way to show your home the love it deserves. To speak with a home security expert about home control, call Commercial Fire & Security to request a free home security consultation. We would love to speak with you.
