These days, everyone wants to simplify their life. One of the goals that people may set out to accomplish this is planning for holiday gifts months in advance. Spouses tell each other what they want, and parents ask their adult children what they can use in their homes, so they can begin budgeting for those things and looking out for sales. It’s around summertime when those loved ones decide that what they could really use is something to make life easier at home – and yet, they aren’t always sure what that “something” is. At that point, their loved ones may suggest a smart home security system.
What is a smart home security system?
A smart home security system is more than an alarm system. It’s a system that virtually runs the household: alarm, cameras, smoke detectors and other life safety devices are the traditional security products it controls, but it also controls “next generation” security devices like video doorbells and electronic locks. Plus, the homeowner can control it all from a smartphone app. And that’s just what it does for security.
It’s not just for security.
A smart home security system lives up to its name. It actually turns the traditional household into an automated smart home. What non-security features does it control?
One of them is lights. If desired, the homeowner can connect lights to the system so that they never come home to a dark house. In this summer season, how great would it be to have lights on at night while you’re on vacation – and then, have them turn off in the morning?
Another is the thermostat. In this era of energy efficiency, homeowners are always looking for ways to consume less electricity. Even those who aren’t concerned about energy for environmental reasons want to save money on their utility bills – and automating their thermostat is one way to do it.
Again, all of this can be controlled from the owner’s smartphone app.
For spouses and parents who want to help their loved ones live life more simply, a smart home security system can be the perfect gift to start planning for. To find out more, contact F.E. Moran Security Solutions; we will be glad to provide you with more info.
