Home security has come a long way over the years, with today’s models featuring all the bells and whistles that allow for them to be fully integrated with home networking systems and smart devices. Of course you’ll want to ensure that whatever system you purchase is compatible with any mobile device you plan to use it with, but there are a few other things to consider before purchasing a smart home security system, including:
Do you want motion-based or sound alerts or alerts for all activities? Email or push-based? They can also be set to provide audible notifications to help ensure you never miss an activity.
If your smart home security system comes with any camera(s) you’ll want to consider the features available on them. Our complete Outdoor Security Camera Buying Guide will help you find something that works for your needs.
When looking at a smart home security system you’ll want to consider the included cameras, sensors, and alarms. Such considerations will depend on the size of your home and how much coverage you desire. There are window sensors, water leak sensors, those that detect smoke and carbon monoxide, and many more. Many systems will even include an audible alarm to deter intruders and alert anyone in the area to a break-in.
The best part of smart home security systems today is you can install most of the automated technology yourself, so you don’t need to shell out thousands to a security installation company or contractor. Consider whether you want a wired or wireless unit and if it requires drilling or an external power source.
