Think of it this way, how much time do we spend securing our house when we leave? One has to close and lock all the windows. Lower the blinds. Set the alarm. Lock all the doors. On top of this, how many times have we been halfway to work only to remember we forgot to lock the garage too? Integrating all your home security systems will save a significant amount of time and hassle. With a tap of the button, you can lock that garage door, close a window, and more.
Smart home integration systems can also increase security beyond locking up the house. Installing a door camera can send a photo of whoever is on your doorstep directly to your phone. If you’re out and waiting for a contractor, maid, or someone else to arrive, you can unlock the door remotely and let them in.
Much home security, and other household systems, rely on Wi-Fi to operate and communicate with you. Although this has worked effectively in the past, the rise of tech-savvy home intruders has implemented ways to hack Wi-Fi and disable security.
addresses this vulnerability directly. Despite its esoteric sounding name, Z-wave is surprisingly easy to install and integrate into home security, and several Marin County security contractors, such as All-Electric, offer this service. Since it’s new and uncommon, this wireless communication channel is significantly harder to be hacked. Stay ahead of the curve in home security, and keep peace of mind knowing your systems run on Z-Wave technology.
Warren Security Systems
Serving Marin County for over forty years, Warren Security
offers an array of high-end security systems targeting intruder detection, fire safety, and more. They tailor each installation to the buyer’s specific wants and needs to ensure the custom system maximizes security.
The most commonly requested and useful automation is their Internet connectivity system. This web-link software allows homeowners to not only be alerted remotely of potential intruders but also check and adjust the temperature, alter home lighting, and verify that their children have arrived safely home from school. As mentioned previously, remote home security access has become the standard, and Warren Security’s professional team excels at installing this service.
Warren Security also offers comprehensive fire protection plans. With such systems installed, air conditioning and other appliances automatically shut off when a fire is detected to minimize the spread of smoke. Simultaneously, interior light aids guide the residents out of the home, while a signal is sent directly to the Warren Security headquarters, which calls the fire department in response.
Their additional home automation systems offer useful but often overlooked installations to maximize easier living. With their optional Omni system, residents won’t have to worry about leaving the coffee pot or stove on after leaving since the system will turn off the appliance itself. The Omni system also allows homeowners to schedule the air conditioning and heating to minimize energy use. The company also offers a lighting automation system that works similarly, allowing the lights to be turned on and off on a customized schedule.
Updating one’s home security is a critical task, and the professionalism and experience of Warren Security will make this process easy and effective.
