How Your Residential Alarm Can Integrate Smart Home Automation

How Your Residential Alarm Can Integrate Smart Home Automation

You can do nearly everything from your phone these days: book appointments, bank, order a package, start your car. With all of these resources on your phone, it may be time to get the most valuable resource of them all: peace of mind. By integrating your residential alarm system with smart home automation features, you can monitor your home from wherever you are and you have the capability to control various security elements both at home and while away. These smart home security features can help you and your family know your home is safe and secure while you are away on vacation, out of the house for the day, or sleeping at night. Here are some of the features of smart home residential alarm system automation.

Smart Home Features

Doorbell Cameras. These are small cameras that are linked to your doorbell so that when someone arrives at your house and rings the doorbell, you will get a notification on your smartphone. The camera will start recording and send a real-time video feed that plays directly on your phone. Some doorbell cameras can activate if someone approaches the door, even if the doorbell has not been rung.

Locks. By connecting your house locks with your smartphone, you don’t have to wonder if you’ve remembered to lock the door when you left, giving you greater peace of mind while away from home. Smart locks can be set to automatically lock when your phone is far from home, or you can manually lock the door from the app, saving you from returning home to do so. There are options available that allow you to use the app as well as a physical key or a keypad if you want the assurance that you can always get into the house even without the use of a phone.

Cameras. Unlike traditional security cameras, smart cameras allow you to operate using wifi, which means you can access your video feed on your phone any time, any place. Smart cameras also allow the user to store their security footage in the cloud, thus clearing up storage space on the smart device. Wireless cameras are available for both indoor and outdoor use, with outdoor cameras often made to be larger and sturdier so they can hold up to the cold Calgary winters. With wireless cameras, you likely will not want to turn the resolution to the highest setting as this may impede internet speed and cause a lagging video. Often, a clear image can be seen with the second highest resolution of 720p while still ensuring that video monitoring is uninterrupted.

Thermostat. While this doesn’t protect your home from unwanted intruders, it is a helpful feature. The smart thermostat allows you to lower the heat of the house during the day, which is both environmentally friendly and saves you money. Another bonus is that you can turn your thermostat down when you leave for vacation but you can turn the heat up if there is a Calgary cold snap while you’re gone and you worry about your pipes freezing, protecting your house from flooding during your absence.
