Warmer weather is finally just around the corner, and with it comes open doors, open windows as well as empty homes while homeowners take some much needed vacations. Some cities throughout Canada report a 20 percent increase in crime over the summer compared to other seasons. We’re here to help you make sure your home is secure this summer with these essential outdoor security products.
Smart home lighting connects directly to your home security system. The smart lights turn on when they sense motion on your property, which triggers your cameras to start recording. Be sure to place lighting in the dark areas of your yard to ensure there is nowhere to hide out of view from your cameras.
Smart Security Cameras
Smart security cameras act as guards for your property by having complete visibility everywhere you can’t. Typical security cameras will alert you when they sense any sort of activity on your property, but modern smart cameras can detect whether the movement is caused by an animal, person, or vehicle. This allows you to customize the alerts you receive – perhaps you want to be notified whenever that pesky neighbourhood animal is in your garbage.
Doorbell cameras are increasing in popularity and becoming a staple in many neighbourhoods. They allow you to see who is at the door or who is around your property even when you’re not home. Video alerts are triggered by motion in the general area of the doorbell camera and features two-way voice communication and functions to allow you to speak to any visitors.
Doorbell cameras are often combined with smart locks, which allow you to use an app on your phone to open the door for visitors or workers once you’ve verified them through your doorbell camera.
These are just a few of the top security products that can help protect you and your family with the upcoming warmer weather whether you’re home or not. A complete smart home security system with automation allows you to have a full security team at your fingertips day or night.
