Most people think that the majority of break-ins involve forcible entry, but according to the FBI out of 1,401,840 burglaries in 2017, 36.2 percent were unlawful entries. Unfortunately, these incidents are due to homeowners forgetting to secure their windows and doors before they leave home.
It’s easy to forget to check all of your doors and windows before you leave. If you’re in a hurry that’s often the last thing on your mind. It’s also time-consuming to check every single door and window to make sure one of the kids hasn’t left one open or unlocked.
You probably shrug it off and think that it would be pure luck if burglars stumbled upon your home and entered through an unlocked window. Then you come home to a ransacked house. Luckily, there is a solution that helps secure your house and save you time in the process.
That solution is a smart home security system. Smart home security systems are the perfect security solution for several reasons.
Smart Home Security Reminds You
You can program your security system to send you reminders through the security app on your phone. Also, if a window or door is not locked, your security system notifies you through the smartphone app.
Voice activation allows you to program “scenes” or vocal commands to the security system that instruct it to “lock the windows and doors” or “arm the system.” For the busy homeowner, these reminders are a great back up to human error.
Arm or Check the System with One Touch
With smart home security, it’s easy to check the status of your garage door, windows, and exterior doors without checking each one. Put a sensor on every window to monitor them 24/7. Adding sensors and smart locks to all of your windows and doors allows you to check the security status of your home by simply checking the app on your phone.
Increase Efficiency and Decrease Wasted Time
Create a customized “Lock up House” scene to automatically lock all of the doors and windows and arm the security system. All you need to do is press the scene button, and then your smart home system takes care of the rest. No more needless running around to lock everything up before you leave since your security system takes care of it all for you. You’ll never have to fret when you’re away from home because you know that your house is safe and secure from unlawful entry.
