Protect Your Home and Loved Ones with Smart Home Security
Let Your Home Take Proactive Measures in an Emergency
Of all the home automation technologies available, one of the most popular is smart home security. These systems bring extraordinary peace of mind in numerous ways. In addition to keeping an eye on your home and loved ones, you’ll receive alerts in the event of potential intruders or toddlers deciding to take their Teddy for a swim. Life is full of unexpected moments, and it's nice to know you’ll be notified when the unusual occurs.
Let’s look at a few of the unique features today’s security systems offer and how they’re helping families in St. Augustine, FL, rest easy through the night and when they’re away.

Check in While You’re Away
From one user-friendly platform, whether a touchscreen, tablet, or smartphone, you can check on the status of your home. Are all the doors locked and the windows closed? Check. Is the alarm armed? Check. Is the "away" temperature set? Check. A smart home lets you check in whether you’re at work or on the other side of the world.
Pull up a live video feed when someone arrives at your door or crosses a digital tripwire. Speak to them through the intercom, and if it's someone you know, you can unlock the door and turn on the lights from the same platform.
We can also program your system to make it look like your home when the family's on vacation or away on a business trip. The lights, music, and TVs randomly turn off and on while the shades raise and lower. To an outside observer, it looks exactly like you’re home.
In addition to sending notifications should sensors detect smoke, heat, water, or carbon monoxide, your smart home can also take preventative measures. If your home detects a water leak, you'll receive a notification, and smart water shut-off valves can turn off the water supply to prevent any damage.
If the home detects dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, it automatically opens motorized windows, enabling fresh air to flow into your home and diminish the potentially lethal gas.
When smoke is detected, your home can take several proactive measures. It shuts off the HVAC system to prevent hazardous smoke from spreading. Lights automatically illuminate, providing a clear path to safety, and doors unlock to enable easy entrance for first responders and a quick exit for family members.
The Difference Smart Security Makes
A smart home security system monitors your home day and night, keeping a wary eye on your property 24/7. Because it's smart, it learns the difference between the usual and the unusual. Does the gardener come by every Thursday at 10 a.m.? Your system will recognize that as a usual event. Was movement detected by the backdoor at 2 a.m.? The security cameras will zoom in to find the cause. So while your neighborhood raccoon will not initiate an alarm, an unknown person will.
