Top Benefits of a Smart Home Security System


Prioritize Your Family’s Safety by Integrating Your Security System with Control4

Whether you are gone for just a few hours or away on a week-long vacation, you may often find yourself thinking about the safety of your home. Even while you are home, it can be hard not to stress over your family’s protection as they sleep. However, you can rest assured that what matters most to you will be kept safe and sound when you have a smart home security system in place.

By integrating your security system with your Control4 home automation system, you will have peace of mind whether you are at home or away. Explore the benefits of a connected home security system by reading below.

Smart Surveillance Cameras

Did you know you can check in on your entire household from anywhere in the world? With the Control4 app on your smartphone or tablet, you can watch live and recorded footage from the connected surveillance cameras throughout your indoor and outdoor living spaces. Whether you simply want to check on the outdoor plants, watch your dog from your desk at work, or scan the premises right before bed, you will have immediate access to your home from any location and at any time of the day or night. Want to take your surveillance to the next level? Set up your system so that you receive alerts on your smart device when any movement is detected.

Choose from a variety of sophisticated camera types that integrate seamlessly with Control4. Our team at Digital Home Systems partners with leading security brands like Honeywell and Lilin to deliver high-definition surveillance technology that leads to better protection for property owners.

Smart Alarms & Locks

Giving your property a secure perimeter of protection can help you rest easy at night or while you are away on vacation. With an integrated alarm system, you can easily arm and disarm your home from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet no matter where you are. You can also program your system to take certain actions when an alarm is triggered. For example, you can receive immediate alerts on your smart device notifying you of any unauthorized access and program your exterior lights to turn on when an alarm goes off.

Arming your alarm and locking your doors with the Control4 app is as easy as tapping a button. But if you leave home in a hurry and are uncertain whether your entryways were secured, you can easily check the status on your smart device and then lock or unlock your doors remotely as necessary.

You are also able to decide who has access to your home when you are not there with personalized codes or by remotely communicating with visitors through a video intercom when they ring your doorbell. Monitoring and managing who enters and leaves your home, as well as ensuring your entryways are locked from the convenience of your smart device, gives you peace of mind in the palm of your hand.

Smart Lighting & Shading Control

Smart lighting and shading are not only great for added convenience and ambiance throughout your home, but these solutions can also significantly improve your home’s security.

With Control4, you can create an “Away” scene that locks your doors, arms your alarm, and adjusts your home’s lights and shades at certain intervals throughout the day to make it look as though someone is home. Potential burglars will think twice before attempting a break-in if they notice lights turning on and off and shades moving up and down throughout the day.

Smart Network Security & Protection

You never want to feel that your smart devices like Alexa are intruding and listening in on you as you go about your day-to-day routines. That is why it is crucial to know that your smart home security goes beyond just protecting your family and property – it is also about keeping your technologies secure as well.

When you have a centralized smart control system, you benefit from the ultimate protection of your personal data and valuable information. Your smart home security system is a closed system and is owned entirely by you. Because it runs on your home’s network, a professional network installation or upgrade is key for a strong and secure smart home foundation.

Stay on top of your home network’s status and ensure it is running properly at all times by bringing Pakedge’s BakPak to your Control4 system. BakPak is a remote monitoring program that can be managed from anywhere, so the moment a smart device or wireless access point goes down, our team can immediately find the issue and fix it remotely. With our expertise and industry knowledge, you can trust we know how your systems should be working and that we will catch any malfunction before anyone else would know about it.


By integrating your home security system with Control4, you will always be connected to what matters most to you. Enjoy full access and control of your home’s security from the comfort of your couch or from the other side of the world—all from the same app. Upgrade to smart home security today by working with our team at Digital Home Systems.
