Turn your house into a smart home this holiday season. Your Alarm Detection Systems Systems Security Expert can help pick the right solutions to expand your alarm systems’ capabilities through app control and intelligent devices. This short article covers how different alarm system add-ons help make the season more comfortable and manageable.

A secure property begins with the alarm system itself. An alarm panel acts as the brains of the entire system. How you customize your alarm system from there depends on your specific lifestyle needs. Exciting new security functions exist today that connection and automation to any home.

Watch Over Holiday Packages

A large portion of Americans has opted to shop online this year. With that increased package traffic, would-be thieves are also more active. Holiday packages are another common winter security concern. Over 1.7 packages disappear every day during the holidays. Doorbell cameras, such as the Skybell, are a great addition if you wish to monitor your deliveries.

Doorbell cameras allow you to receive notifications straight to your phone. The motion sensor in the doorbell will alert you when your package is delivered. This motion detection will also inform you if any suspicious activity is occurring on your porch.
