4 Advantages of Smart Home Security Systems

Smart Technology Security — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

One of the primary concerns for many homeowners is the safety of their properties and loved ones. This is one of the reasons smart technology security solutions are popular not only in commercial buildings but also at home. The following benefits will win you over to the idea of utilizing smart home security technology for your home.

1. Real-Time Security Alerts

Conventional security systems alert you after a security breach. For this reason, it is too late to take preventive measures when you receive a security notification. For example, if there is a fire, carbon monoxide leak, or break-in, all you can do is try to mitigate the damage.

Smart home security systems provide instant alerts to security incidents. As a result, there are minimal chances of theft, injuries, damages, and fatalities. Additionally, these systems make it possible to receive notifications from anywhere through any mobile device. This way, you are always updated on recent activities in your home. 

For example, if a burglar unlocks a window, the contact sensors and smart locks send out alerts immediately. This feature is especially beneficial to parents because it gives them peace of mind should their children wander off to potentially dangerous areas.

2. Remote Access 

With smart home security systems, you don’t have to be near the system’s hardware to monitor your home. This means you can use a smartphone app to connect to the security system from anywhere in your home.

Furthermore, the smartphone app also has features that enable you to access the security system when you aren’t at home. In addition to this, you can arm and disarm the system remotely. This feature comes in handy when you want to let a family member or friend into your home when you aren’t around.

Besides, you can also lock the door remotely. For example, if you forgot to lock your doors, the system will send an alert and provide an option to lock the door. 

3. Great Deterrent for Thieves

In connection with remote access, many people install smart home security systems because they deter thieves. Typically, burglars target homes they can easily enter and make a quick getaway. This security technology discourages burglars because they fear camera or video surveillance. To deter thieves further, you should advertise your smart security system with highly visible notices. 

Additionally, placing smart cameras in visible areas near your front door will deter parcel theft. The cameras will alert you when a person arrives at your door. When a petty thief knows they are on record, they wouldn’t dare try and steal your front-door deliveries.

4. Difficult to Disable

Disarming a smart home security system without setting off a series of alarms is difficult. This is because smart security systems rely on wireless technology. Therefore, a burglar cannot interrupt your communication with the outside world by cutting off broadband and phone cables. 

This system allows you the option of responding to a security situation in your home remotely through your smart device. Moreover, since most systems have a central monitoring station, an alarm will go off if someone manages to disable the system.

Although smart home security systems are more expensive than standard security solutions, their convenience and effectiveness make them cost-effective. Furthermore, if you have concerns about high utility bills, you can reduce your power consumption with a smart thermostat and LED lights.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    This is the perfect place to go when you have no idea what to get your relatives for Christmas/birthdays. They have fun gadgets all the way up to amazing electronics. Their customized closets are also something just about anyone can use. Who doesn't want to save some space in their home? Stop by and check it out sometime.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
