Are you a homeowner searching for a home security system or looking to upgrade your current setup? Home automation security system integration is the answer to making your house feel safer. Smart home technology continues to expand and is now becoming more user-friendly — even for those new to home automation. Home protection technologies can be customized to meet your needs and have many unique features that stand out from standard security systems.
Here’s how AIS can help you create the best home security system to give you peace of mind knowing that your family and home have added protection.
How Home Automation Security System Integration Adds More Protection
There are many benefits of home automation and security systems to help homeowners feel safer in their homes. Integrating various security components allows you to receive immediate alerts, monitor your home remotely, and control your home in real time.
Below we’ll break down the benefits of integrating home automation and security into your home.
Immediate Alerts to Catch Porch Pirates or Suspicious Activity
A vital benefit of a smart security system is that it can provide immediate alerts when any suspicious activity is detected. With a doorbell camera from Alarm.com or IC Realtime, you can get a live view of who is at your door, even if you’re not home. These doorbell cameras produce high-quality images, so you have clear footage to send to the police if you see someone you don’t recognize.
They can also be programmed to display the image from the doorbell camera on your home control system’s touch panels and smart devices once the doorbell is rung. This added security layer helps protect your home from porch pirates and other potential threats.
Remote Access to Monitor Your Home While Away
Another advantage of home automation and security is the ability to monitor your home while you’re away. Using a home control system like ELAN, you can access live video feeds, receive notifications, and control your security system remotely through a phone app. This allows you to monitor your home, even if you’re out of town or on vacation. This means you don’t have to worry about leaving your home unoccupied, as you can check in on it anytime.
Real-Time Home Control to Monitor Kids While Playing Outside
You can control other aspects of your home in real-time through smart home automation and security system integration. For example, you can turn on the lights outside to provide a safer environment for your kids while playing.
You can also lock and unlock doors remotely, especially if you need to let someone into your home while you’re away. If you’re worried about your children being outside for too long, you can set a timer to remind you to bring them inside. Intercom systems are also available, allowing homeowners to communicate with their children or spouse remotely.
Smart Home Security Components
Smart home security components are the building blocks of an effective home automation security system. These components include cameras, sensors, and lights, which can be integrated to create a comprehensive solution that provides maximum protection for your home.
Below we’ll take a closer look at smart home security components and how they can help protect your home.
Security & Doorbell Cameras
A security camera setup is essential to a smart home automation security system. High-quality, wired surveillance cameras are equipped with features like motion sensors, night vision, and automated flood lights. They provide live video feeds, allow you to monitor your home while you’re away, and can even detect movement and sound.
AIS can install a range of wired or wireless surveillance cameras, which can be integrated with an ELAN control system. With cameras, you can feel more at ease knowing that you can see what’s happening at your home on your smart device anytime and anywhere.
Data Privacy Concerns with Consumer-Grade Smart Home Security Products
As an important note, most consumer-grade products sell customer data to other countries for profit. At AIS, we only offer smart home security products that take their consumer’s privacy seriously. We partner with brands that don’t allow access or data to be shared with anyone without the owner’s permission, no matter what. Brands like Alarm.com, 2GIG, IC Realtime, and ELAN provide much safer products and will never sell your data.
If personal data privacy is a concern, invest in high-quality smart home security products from AIS.
Security System Sensors
Sensors are another vital component of a smart security system. They can be used for many different purposes throughout the house.
Here are the different sensor types that can be integrated with a smart home security system:
- water leak sensor
- glass break sensor
- motion sensor
- garage door tilt sensor
- door and window contacts
With these sensors, you can be alerted to any potential hazards and take action to protect your home promptly.
Lighting control is a crucial component of home automation security system integration. Smart lights can be set to turn on and off automatically, providing a safer environment for your family while saving money on energy consumption.
With ELAN, you can control your smart lights from anywhere, even when you’re not home. For example, if you’re worried about someone breaking into your home, you can turn on the lights to make it appear as though someone is inside.
Different smart lights can also be combined to create better smart home security systems.
Some smart lights options for security systems are:
- flood lights
- landscape lights
There are multiple landscape lighting options that AIS specializes in installing. Below, we’ll explain more about landscape lighting and its benefits.
Landscape lighting can completely transform your home’s exterior look and feel. It can add security, value, and a touch of luxury all at the same time. With the proper landscape lighting, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere for your family and friends to enjoy and highlight the best features of your home and yard while improving security by illuminating the outdoor spaces of your home.
In our professional experience, FX Luminaire is the top brand for outdoor lighting. FX Luminaire is a brand that offers a wide range of high-quality landscape lighting fixtures designed to provide optimal lighting and durability. Their product line includes a variety of lighting options such as path lights, spotlights, flood lights, and wall lights — all of which are designed to be energy-efficient and easy to install.
A key feature of FX Luminaire is its LED technology, which provides bright, consistent, and energy-efficient lighting. They also offer various control options, such as their Luxor Wireless control system, allowing you to control and program your lights from a mobile device easily. They can be paired with your ELAN home control system to manage all your smart technology in one place.
