Professionals of home security in WA advise homeowners to incorporate a comprehensive home security system into their residence to guard against the intrusion of burglars. In the past few years, with the advent of mobile gadgets, home video surveillance and the combination of those technologies into a complete package, homes protected with video surveillance have seen more crimes prevented and intruders arrested, giving many homeowners a sense of security.
Seattle security systems like Total Connect allow homeowners to watch over specific rooms, outside areas and keep up-to-date with that surveillance with specialized security apps. Units begin with a wireless keypad control center that acts as a central location for controlling the protection of doors and windows. Sensors are placed around specific entry points that a thief may use to gain entry into a home. A wireless motion sensor is also included and has the technology to avoid unnecessary alarming when pets are present. Sensors, lights and a fire security system can all be easily maintained and accessed from a central control unit. 24-hour fire alarm and home security monitoring allows homeowners to feel safe when they are inside of a house.
A person isn’t always home though. Often, burglaries occur when intruders case a household to determine which times are best for committing their crimes. Video surveillance solves that challenge and is incorporated into a Total Connect system customized for home security in WA. Video cameras can be placed inside strategic rooms and outside of homes or businesses. Pets can be monitored, babies and nannies can be observed and a mother that works late can check up on her kids to make sure that they arrived home from school safe and are diligently completing their homework. Businesses are not left out of this security solution as Seattle security systems can be set up around registers or employee workstations. A Total Connect video surveillance camera adds a layer of protection to a business and employee that holds nighttime business hours when crimes often occur.
Remote access is one of the key advantages to using a Total Connect system. With the latest smartphones and tablets, a system can be armed, disarmed and video feeds can be monitored. The pushbutton controls on a Total Connect interactive system are intuitive and easy to use. Main sections include security, video and an automation area. The security controls show which alarms are set and any current problem areas. The automation control area allows lights to be switched on and off in separate areas of a home. It also allows thermostat control and garage door access. The video control area allows a user to choose specific cameras and move them if it is required. These free apps allow a user to view as many as six live camera feeds at once. Cameras can be panned, tilted or swiped across a perimeter. Images from cameras are sent instantly to a person’s smartphone or tablet where they can be monitored when an individual is away.
Event notifications can also be sent via text or email. These handy alerts relay extreme temperature changes, motion sensor disruption and restricted movement of sensors. It’s easy to see why a Total Connect system is recommended by top home security professionals in Washington.
