Smart alarms - manage and monitor many aspects of home ownership

Posted in: / July 26, 2022

If you wish to deter potential burglars, monitor your property without the need to hire an external company, and set your alarm from all over the world, home smart alarms are the solution you’ve been looking for.

Home security systems have significantly evolved over the years. In the not-so-long-gone past, our properties – provided they had a hardwired alarm – could only be monitored by an external company and there was a monthly fee for such a service. On top of that the best home security services and hardware used to be expensive and meant to be fitted only by a professional companies. But we’ve all gone wireless, and smart alarms appeared, which have many benefits over more traditional solutions.

Home security cameras and smart video doorbells are good tools for keeping an eye on what's happening in you property in real time but in case there is a break-in, it's highly recommended to have a mores sophisticated and intelligent version of a burglar deterrent system in place.

Smart alarms: convenience

Not only do they protect your property from burglary, but also can be operated through your smartphone. Therefore, you can monitor your security system yourself and thus avoid paying monthly fees. You save money and, at the same time, maintain control over your home security from anywhere in the world.

That’s not all. You can choose between different modes – to fully arm your alarm when you’re at work or on holiday or to have it on the “home mode” when you’re in.

Speaking of holidays, being able to have a look at your property’s door and surroundings when you are away, gives you true peace of mind.

Also, most smart alarms allow entry for anybody who has a pin number. You can also set a personalised alert log to see who accesses your property and disarms the alarm. For ultimate control and convenience, there is a possibility to give timed or anytime access to any of your relatives, friends, colleagues, or other people such as a courier or a postman.

Smart alarms: maximum security

Unlike their predecessors, smart alarms are proactive. Thanks to smart motion sensors and smart cameras they are equipped with, you become alerted about potential intrusion before it actually happens. So, when you see any unwanted presence around your property, you can give the intruders a voice warning or call the police straight away.

Most of all, with smart alarms you are able to set a cloud-based integrated smart home security system to monitor several locations.

Keep in mind that, to truly benefit from your smart alarm, you need to keep your home network secure: protect your password and change it once in a while. Also, remember about downloading updates to keep the system up to date. If possible, set up two-step authentication.

Two-factor authentication (2FA), sometimes referred to as two-step verification or dual-factor authentication, is a security process in which users provide two different authentication factors to verify themselves. 2FA is implemented to better protect both a user's credentials and the resources the user can access.
