What to Look for in a Home Security System

Learn about what to look for in a home security system.

When it comes to protecting your home, a security system goes beyond preventing theft to providing peace of mind for the whole family. But how do you know which home security options are right for you? We’ve put together a list of features and benefits that can be customized based on your specific needs and space to help you choose the best-fit security system. Read on as we discuss things to look for in a home security system.

Burglar Alarms and Intruder Detection

When you think of an alarm, the first thing that comes to mind may be a door sensor, a motion detector, or glass break sensors—something to alert your family of unusual activity in the home. While these are important elements if protection from intruders is high on your list, a true full-home security system doesn’t stop there.

Additional Alarms for Safety

Safeguarding your home and family also means protection from accidents and the elements. With alarms designed to monitor temperature, water, smoke, and carbon monoxide combined with whole-home security through interactive services like Alarm.com® or Nest®, you’re not only keeping your property in mind, but you’re also putting your family’s health first.

Know Who’s Knocking

With Ring® doorbell cameras, you can see, hear, and speak to visitors without ever opening the door. This provides added safety and allows more control when you’re away from home.

Surveillance for Peace of Mind

You can take the peace of mind of remote monitoring a step further through CCTV (closed circuit television) surveillance cameras. From basic indoor and outdoor tamperproof cameras to a more robust system that incorporates pan-tilt-zoom for more control with remote monitoring, you can keep an eye on your home even when you can’t be there in person. Infrared cameras even allow for low light or no light for nighttime monitoring.
