BENEFIT OF HOME SECURITY ALARM SYSTEM

WHY CONSINDER ALARM OVER CCTV SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS

Surveillance

A CCTV system, or closed-circuit television, consists of a network of strategically placed cameras, designed to record and capture footage at key points – entryways, secure rooms and things of that nature. It can broadcast in real time to a surveillance monitor or smartphone and record either locally or in the cloud for later reference. Of course, in and of itself, that’s not useful – it requires someone to see the footage to respond to a problem. While the cameras themselves serve as a deterrent, the delayed reaction time from just a CCTV generally means you only learn of security breaches after they occur.

ALARM SYSTEMS

An alarm security system doesn’t include security cameras, but other key security features, like door or window sensors, heat and smoke detectors, flood sensors, passive infrared for motion sensing and so forth.  That covers a wider range of possibilities than cameras alone.  If a burglar breaks into your home with just a CCTV system, all you get is footage of someone breaking into your home.  If they attempt that with an alarm security system in place, a door sensor or window sensor will trip, setting off a siren.  Alarm security system is proactive; a CCTV system alone is reactive

ADVANTAGE OF SECURITY ALARM SYSTEMS

Another advantage of security systems is that they send you notifications and alerts, usually via text or a mobile app. Although alert types generally depend on the system and its home automation level, some examples include motion, humidity changes, or temperature fluctuation. The sense of security and comfort you gain with an alarm system is perhaps the greatest benefit of all. Next to being safe, the confidence of feeling safe will help you be a more productive, healthy, and focused person.

1. PROTECT VALUABLES

 

This is, of course, the benefit most people immediately think of. We likely all know someone who has lost electronics, jewelry, or other high-value items due to a home invasion. The tragedy is compounded when the item is an irreplaceable family heirloom. While using a home safe can help protect irreplaceable items, a home security system has an alarm that can scare off many would-be burglars and can notify the local authorities if someone does attempt a break-in.

2. DETERS CRIME

 

As the number of home security systems increased in an area, the number of residential robberies decreased in that area, even for people who didn’t have their own security system. Having a security system not only protects you, but helps deter crime and creates a safer neighborhood for everyone.

3. HELPS KEEP KIDS ON TAB

 

This is another great aspect of home automation. If you’re at work, you can use your provider’s mobile app to watch what’s happening in your home via video doorbells and other security cameras, so you’ll know who your teens are inviting over when you’re away. If you have electronic door locks, you can even remotely unlock them to let the kids in after school, so they don’t have to worry about carrying (and potentially losing) a key to the house.

4. NOTIFIES YOU OF FIRE OR GAS PROBLEMS

 

You can opt to receive notifications if your smoke alarms or carbon monoxide detectors go off when you’re away from home. Depending on the provider, you can even set it up so authorities are instantly notified of these emergencies.

5. IMPROVES ELETRICITY MANAGEMENT

 

Many security companies offer top quality smart home products like smart locks, video doorbells and smart thermostats, as part of their systems.. If you’ve forgotten to change your thermostat before leaving on a trip, these gadgets allow you to control the thermostat on any web-enabled device. Likewise, if you think you left your curling iron plugged in, you can turn it off the outlet right from any of your devices. This works as a great tool to turn lights on and off while you’re on vacation to help give the home the appearance that someone is there.
