3 Smart Ways to Enhance Your Home Security in the New Year
Detroit-Area Residents Should Feel Safe Inside and Outside of Their Home
The holiday season is over, and it’s time to start thinking about the big family vacations you’ll be taking in the New Year. But whether you’re away from your Ann Arbor home on a family trip or you’re just down the road at your office in downtown Detroit, you want to ensure that your home is safe at all times. An advanced home security system is essential for protecting your property and your family. Read on to find out 3 smart ways to enhance your home security in the New Year.
Surveillance is a Snap
Integrators have long been a fan of Snap AV’s Wirepath surveillance system. Its intelligent design and vast storage capacity made it a great go-to when integrating smart surveillance. The only problem was that the user interface was a bit clunky. That’s why the surveillance experts at Snap AV have completely overhauled their product and released a new line of user-friendly components called Luma.
The new line’s main selling point is the totally re-done interface – one that reflects popular products like NEST and other ultra-simple solutions. The same interface can be accessed on your computer, television, smartphone or tablet, so you don’t have to learn multiple ways to find your content.
But Luma’s improvements reach far beyond greater usability. The new cameras sport loads of new features – including deeper integration into your existing Control4 system. Thanks to integrated motion sensors, your entire home automation system can react to unexpected movement without the need for additional equipment.
More capabilities include being able to cycle through live camera footage, navigate recordings, zoom-in and sending HD clips from either a third party system (like Control4) or through the new interface.
Don’t be Alarmed by Smart Security
Surveillance cameras are a big part of your home’s security system, but they don’t have to work alone. They can be paired with an advanced security set-up, like one from Alarm.com, which helps you stay aware of what’s going on in and around your home at all times.
Integrate your existing surveillance cameras into a robust Alarm.com system for 24 hour remote monitoring services that keep your home protected even in the wee hours of the night. If activity is detected at your home, Alarm.com is aware of it immediately and can respond accordingly.
Plus, features like remote access and video monitoring put the power in the palm of your hand. When it’s time to let the housekeeper in, or the gardener needs access to the back yard, receive a video alert and take a peek via your smartphone or tablet. If everything is in order, let them in even if you’re miles away with the touch of a button.
And for your family members and most trusted friends, create personalized user codes that let you know who is coming and going from your home at all times.
