As you can see from the elaborate title to this post, we are going to talk about some ways that you can be smart about your home or business security. They say hindsight is 20/20 and anyone who has ever had to use that term, understands the feeling of wanting to go back in time and make just one small change that could alter an event. Many times, that particular event is a break in that results in loss or damage of property and sense of security.
A lot of UK homeowners talk about adding a security system, yet they put it off until after they really need it. Why is this? The loss or damage is usually much more expensive than the cost of an advanced smart security system. Is it because they assume that most smart security systems are too difficult to operate or so time consuming to use that they will never arm the system?
Let’s take a look at the last example. It is true that many home security systems in the past have been difficult to use and understand. But with the advances in smart home security systems that we have today, that way of thinking couldn’t be farther from the truth. Modern home security systems are easy to use and some can even be armed with your voice, never having to push a button or remember a code. These systems integrate with your home entertainment system and can monitor every room of your home sending live video feed to your PC, laptop or mobile device.
Now, you can be at work and monitor your home, be away on holiday and receive important security alerts or even see who is outside your home from the comfort and safety of your living room. Modern smart security systems such as the Control4 are just one part of your new smart home. Tying together everything from lighting and HVAC controls, to entry door locks, home entertainment , and security, the Control4 installed by In Control will make your home safer and more convenient to live in.
