4 Critical Smart Home Devices That Improve Safety
Smarter Home Security Means a Safer Home for You and Your Family
The locks on your doors keep out unwanted intruders, and your fire alarm system chirps when smoke is detected. But what happens if you leave a door unlocked after going out of town? What if a fire starts in the kitchen and you’re not home to hear the alarm?
When the critical devices in your Jacksonville, FL home are connected within a single platform that you can access and manage remotely, you’ll always know what’s happening at home no matter where you are. Not only will you have eyes on your home around the clock, but you’ll also receive real-time alerts when a door is left unlocked, smoke is detected, a light is left on, and more.
Below are four critical home devices you should make smart for improved safety and security.
Fire Alarm System
Few life events are more devastating than coming home to a burning property—especially if loved ones were harmed. When you’re not home, there’s no way to see (or smell) the signs of a potential fire. A smart fire alarm system can help protect your family with safeguards for dangerous conditions. For example, if your system detects carbon monoxide, you will receive a real-time alert and your system will contact emergency responders right away.
Connected door locks eliminate worry when you leave for a quick errand, work, or an extended vacation. From your mobile device, you can quickly check to make sure all locks are secure. If any entrances are left unlocked, a quick tap on your mobile device will lock them up. If you don’t want to have to check, you can set up alerts to ping you if an unlocked door is detected after you leave your property.
Manage your indoor and outdoor lights with automatic schedules, and even set rules that trigger lights to turn on when your security alarm goes off or if motion is detected on your property. Smart lighting control gives you access to your lights while away so you can ensure your front porch light is on, your bedroom lights are off, and more. You’ll improve the safety of your home while reducing excessive energy use at the same time.
Integrated thermostats can help keep your family safe by turning off as soon as carbon monoxide is detected so that the toxic fumes don’t travel around the home. Beyond safety measures, integrated thermostats can help you save energy by allowing you to set temperature schedules and receive alerts when the temperature goes above or below a certain degree. Access and manage your thermostats while you’re away to ensure your HVAC system is never overworked.
