WHEN SECURITY IS “SMART”
You probably already know wat a security system can do. Surveillance cameras capture the action. Alarm systems send out signals to neighbors and authorities. Those are fundamental functions of any high-end security system.
But a smart system operates differently. Not only does it do all the same things as a standard system, but each device can talk to the others to ensure even greater safety.
For instance, your surveillance cameras can integrate with your smart lighting to automatically brighten whenever a connected motion sensor detects movement. That way you flood the area with light and capture a well-lit image.
Moreover, your system can operate with a single touch. When you head out of the house, tapping the “away” setting will arm your alarm and integrated locks. But it will also prompt your smart home to start alternating lights and shade movement throughout each room, making the space look occupied.
