A Smart Home Security System Can Do More Than You Realize 

A smart home security system gives you the ability to access devices like lights, door locks, cameras, alarm systems, and more remotely, giving you absolute control over your home. Plus, with the right solutions in place, you can also receive alerts for incidents like fire and water leaks, as well as for abrupt temperature changes! Keep reading to learn about a few key ways you can improve your home’s security that you may not have thought about before.

Smoke and Leak Alerts 

We teach our children that they should not play with matches, and we are careful around the kitchen and other flammable situations. These are precautions we all were taught at a young age that would prevent fires in our homes. Some incidents are impossible to prepare for, though. Electrical fires are one of those unfortunate accidents. This is when having a smart security system with integrated sensors can have added benefits. If you are away from your home in Greenwich, CT or surrounding areas and an electrical fire breaks out, or a pipe bursts, integrated sensors will trigger your security system to send an alert to your mobile phone so you can act quickly to prevent further damage. 

Notification of Temperature Changes and Movement 

While fires and leaks can cause severe damage to your home, other factors can lead to unwanted conditions. Temperature and humidity fluctuations can be especially harmful in susceptible areas like refrigerated rooms such as wine cellars or art galleries. However, with the right solutions in place, you can receive alerts of abrupt temperature changes and make adjustments remotely in real-time. Your indoor cameras will keep eyes on these areas, as well as the rest of your home, and alert you of any movement while you’re away, whether it’s a potential intruder or simply a family member grabbing a wine bottle for a special occasion. You can also personalize your notifications to receive alerts for specific events so that you aren’t flooded with alerts for routine activity.
