5 Benefits of Automated Home Security Systems
Home automation has brought an untold amount of benefits to homeowners that wish to make their lives easier and increase the safety of their homes. Here you’ll find 5 benefits of installing an automated home security system:
Safeguard Your Home Against Intruders
Security cameras, motion sensors, intelligent lighting, and automated locks provide you with a solid defense against intruders… particularly when you’re not at home. You can program your smart home to “simulate” human presence when you’ll be away from home, and this’ll work wonders to keep burglars from assaulting your home.
In addition, motion sensors automatically detect when a stranger is trying to break into your house (i.e. by forcing the locks, or breaking a window), and your security system will instantly alert you and will also call the police. Moreover, you can use the footage recorded by your security cameras to help the authorities do their job.
Besides, if you ever forget to lock your doors, your automated home will make sure your doors are properly locked after you leave.
Protection Against Fire
Unlike regular smoke alarms (that usually warn you after the fire has spread throughout your house), a smart home will give you an early warning, will tell you about unusual sources of heat inside your house, and also will contact the Fire Department on your behalf.
This is extremely important because a small flame needs only about 30 seconds to transform into a full blown fire. This means that, when your regular smoke detector warns you about a potential fire breaking out… your house may be already brimming with poisonous, thick black smoke that makes it impossible to breathe, see, or call the Fire Department. A smart home’s early warning can be the difference between life and death (and the complete destruction of your home).
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that’s found in all types of combustion fumes. After burning any carbon-based fuel, you can be sure the fumes contain carbon monoxide. This gas is poisonous for humans because if prevents the blood from carrying life-giving oxygen to all body tissues. And, since humans can’t detect this gas, carbon monoxide poisoning has become the most common type of fatal poisoning in industrialized countries. For example, even modern cars (equipped with catalytic converters that neutralize toxic pollutants) can produce enough carbon monoxide to kill a person inside a closed garage.
However, a security system equipped with carbon monoxide detectors can give you an early warning, and also call paramedics trained to treat the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning
Monitor Your Home While You’re Away
If you’re leaving town for several days (or weeks), you can rest assured your house will be 100% safe because you’ll be able to monitor your home from anywhere in the world. Moreover, your monitoring service provider will respond to any emergency situation. Should any kind of emergency arise (fire, natural disaster, intruders, carbon monoxide buildup) your smart home will automatically call for help… and your monitoring company will respond swiftly and effectively.
Another benefit of installing an automated security system is you’ll save money on homeowners insurance. Depending on the features of your security system, you’ll receive up to a 20% discount on your monthly insurance bill.
