The FBI says on average, 65 percent of home burglaries occur from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. That’s right, at 2 p.m. in the afternoon while you’re sipping on your afternoon coffee, someone could be climbing through your living room window and stealing all your expensive and most prized possessions.
Working from home or getting a guard dog might not be a possible solution for everyone out there. The good thing is we live in the day and age of technology where the protection of your home is literally at your fingertips regardless of how far from home you may be.
How it Works
A smart home wireless security system is connected to the Wi-Fi in your home. This means, you can access, control and monitor your home security from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. From a few window and door sensors to full blown surveillance cameras, lights, alarms and door locks – how much of your home security you want to be able to control from your device is up to you.
When it comes to home camera surveillance you can choose to receive notifications when movement is detected or pay more to have a company surveillance your home 24/7, providing ultimate peace of mind hassle free. This might be a better option if you don’t want to mess with installing window and door sensors around your home. Depending on the location and potential threat to your home, the decision is ultimately up to you and what you think is best for you, your family and your home.
Features and Benefits
One of the best features about a smart home wireless security system is having access to the lights, locks and garage door all from your smart phone or tablet. If you’re getting home late and you live alone, you can turn on your light from your desk when it begins to get dark, that way you’re coming home to a house that is lit and not in the dark. Having a panic attack while sitting in traffic all the way across town because you’re not sure if you locked the front door? There is no need to drive all the way home or call a neighbor to check, simply pull up the app on your phone and hit the lock button.
This feature also stems even beyond security, if you just forgot to turn off the lights when you left, with a simple tap of your finger you can turn them off while sitting in your 9 a.m. meeting. Saving energy and reducing your electric bills in the process. This feature is also beneficial for those who travel as you can turn your lights on and off, remotely, given the appearance that the home has not be left unattended.
From a simple motion alter notification to lights, sirens and an automatic call to the police, you can have a safer home and prevent a home burglary with a smart wireless security system.
