Know Your Home Security Needs







Using home automation as a security tool is easy,. Here are four specific home automation technologies that can really enhanced the safety of your home:

  1. Door locks—Automatic door locks are good for much more than locking your doors from anywhere. It’s great to glance at my phone and know for sure that my house is locked up when I’m at the gym or at work. I also like that my door locks send me notifications if anything changes.If one of my kids unlocks a door, I get a text message telling me exactly who is home and which door they used. That’s the beauty of personalcodes for your locks: each family member or friend has their own number to get in, so you know exactly who’s in your house and when.
  2. Lights—Can your lights be a tool to prevent break-ins? Absolutely. The biggest deterrent for intruders is someone being home, so I’ve programmed my lighting/small appliance controls to turn my lights on and off automatically. Whether my family is on vacation or just out for the night, arming my system after dark triggers lights to turn on in different parts of the house at different times so it looks like someone is actually walking through the house.
  3. Sensors & Detectors—Wireless home security and interactive management systems can be designed by you, the user. No complicated programming or new cables to run. Once connected the network allows your home's security sensors including motion detectors, window & door sensors, IR detectors, smoke & gas detectors and more and any wireless security system to talk to each other, and to you .
  4. Cameras—Cameras are a great way to keep an eye on your home and always know what’s going on. You can check in on your kids or pets, take a look at the house while you’re on vacation, and much more. Your security system will most likely scare off an intruder, but having security camera footage increases your chances of knowing who broke into your house. That means you’ll be able to take appropriate action against home intruders and prevent them from breaking into other houses.

All of these tools give families and parents a valuable chance to stay connected with their homes. Home automation can help you experience the emotional safety of knowing what your kids are doing and when they’re coming and going. As a parent of teenagers, I especially enjoy knowing that my system is keeping my house secure. Yes, home automation is about connecting technology and making your life more convenient and simple, but we want people to realize how versatile home automation can be. You can use your system in many different ways, so get creative and explore the possibilities.

3. Home Alarm Sensor Systems Scare Off Burglars.

A home alarm system is usually composed of a network of several different sensors and detectors. How complex a network you need depends on your home size and the level of protection you are looking for to keep you and your family safe. Below are common components of a good alarm system.

Your home security systems can now include solar yard signs to warn burglars of the alarm system present in a business, building, or house. A bachelor witnessed his neighbor being saved from burglars with the help of the yard sign. The intruders decided to choose another victim, but fortunately, they were caught due to the alarm system they triggered.

Homes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Even similar floor plans may have a different number of windows, doors, and access points. Because every home is unique, that means it will have its own special list of security equipment needs. To make it easier, we've compiled a list and equipment details below so you can familiarize yourself with the equipment and make an informed decision when it comes to your home security needs.

Heat Sensor

Most fires in homes or buildings can be detected early by a rapid rise in temperature. Fire and smoke detectors are a very important part of preventing extensive damage from fire. As important as these detectors may be, many people still choose to use a heat sensor as well. One reason for this preference is that smoke and heat detectors may not work well in areas such as basements that are dry and dusty. Homes of Tomorrow offers heat sensors that will detect two problems that may indicate a fire in the home: a rapid rise in temperature or when the temperature increases to 135°Fahrenheit.

  • Heat sensor boasts a fixed alarm at 135°

  • Automatically detects low battery of sensor

In fact, any room that has pipes that are exposed will reap the benefits of a freeze sensor. A Homes of Tomorrow freeze sensor will detect low temperatures before they get the chance to do real damage. Freeze sensor signals alarm at 41ËšF to prevent pipe bursts and problems Use freeze sensor in climates where temperature can drop below 32° When temperature returns to 50°, sensor has an all clear signal.
