If you’re here, you’re probably considering a new home security system. Welcome! You’ve made a great choice by looking for the best way to protect your family.

We completely understand if you’re feeling overwhelmed. With so many possibilities for home security and automation, narrowing down your options can be overwhelming. Today, in addition to serving as your alarm system, your home monitoring system can be so much more. It’s pretty amazing what the advanced technology and wireless systems can do in your home, from changing the thermostat to locking your front door, and all from your smartphone!

We want to help you feel completely informed when it comes to selecting a home security system. Read on for some of the considerations to keep in mind, and what we recommend you look to get out of your system.

 

Protection you can count on

Let’s start by forgetting all the extras, and focus on what matters most: the actual security. Because there’s one main reason why people choose to equip their house with a security system. It’s the total peace of mind that comes with knowing your family and your home is safe and protected, whether you’re there or away.

When choosing your home security system, make sure that you’ll be receiving protection you can count on. Look for fast alarm response times and 24/7 monitoring. Ensure the security company you count on has a monitoring plan you’re most comfortable with, as some do outsource their monitoring services rather than having their own central station.

 

Convenient access and control

Thanks to all of the advances in automated home technology, accessing and adjusting your home’s security and other systems should be simple. Whether you prefer to touch a button on your smart phone, tablet, or computer, or simply speak your commands by connecting with an Alexa-enabled device, having complete control of your alarm system has never been user-friendlier.  Since this is such a huge part of using your home monitoring system to its fullest extent, we believe a smartphone app for convenient access and control should be an included part of your system, not an extra cost. 

 

Customization just for you

Here’s where it gets fun. Your home security setup doesn’t have to be a cookie cutter copy of every other alarm system out there. If you select a system that has opportunities for customization, you get to think about the aspects of home automation you care about most, and choose those add-ons that are most important to you. Just a few of the options: fire monitoring, door locks, garage door control, and smart thermostats. And we can’t forget the cameras, cameras, and more cameras! 

If it’s important to you to be able to deck out your house with the one-of-a-kind system of your choice, make sure there’s an opportunity for customization with whichever home security provider you go with.
