Enjoy Peace of Mind with a Smart Home Alarm System
Smart Technology Enhances Home Security
According to the FBI, property crime makes up about 83% of all crime in the U.S., which saw nearly 620,000 burglaries in 2021. Today, about 62% of Americans use some form of security measure to protect their homes and loved ones.
A smart home alarm system provides safety, sending security alerts to your smartphone no matter where you are in the world. It also acts as a deterrent, with many thieves choosing a different target. These systems, however, offer much more, from alerting you in the case of environmental threats to enabling digital tripwires and offering presence simulation.
Let's explore how homeowners in Brunswick, GA, turn to burglar alarms and smart security systems for protection and security.

The Difference Between a Burglar Alarm & Security System
A burglar alarm system consists of door and window contact sensors, an alarm, and a keypad. When triggered, a loud siren may scare the intruder away and alert neighbors and emergency responders of a break-in.
A smart security system offers comprehensive home protection and includes features like smart security cameras, remote monitoring, glass break and flood sensors, and smoke, carbon monoxide, and water detectors. The following represent a few of the many features these systems offer.
Smart Home Integration
A smart security system can integrate with other intelligent home devices, such as door locks, lighting, and thermostats, all working together to secure your home. For instance, if a smart camera detects an unknown person in your backyard or by the garage, the system can immediately lock all the doors in your home.
If that occurs at night, flood lights brighten the area. No matter the time of day or where you are, you’ll receive a notification and can check on your home through the live video surveillance feed.
It also enables one touch to secure your home at night or when you leave for the day. Tap the ‘Sleep’ icon on your smartphone or tablet, and the doors lock, the alarm arms, the lights turn off, and the temperature adjusts. Tap the ‘Away’ icon, and your home secures itself while also turning lights on and off throughout the day, providing presence simulation and creating the illusion that your home is occupied.
When you’re away, you’ll receive notifications if the door is unlocked or the security is unarmed. With one tap on your smartphone, you can secure your home.
One of the best features is proactive safeguards that react to a potential emergency. For instance, we can program the system to turn off your HVAC system if smoke or carbon monoxide is detected to reduce the spread of dangerous fumes throughout your home. When a person is detected late at night, bright lights and loud noises are often enough to deter them.
