Stay Alert

A smart alarm’s primary benefit is that it will alert you to break-ins. When someone enters your home without authorization, a high-pitched sound will start to let the neighborhood know. Smart alarms are a little different than traditional alarm systems. They can integrate with other devices as part of a whole ecosystem of safety. Your alarm can work with your cameras, lighting, and locks to ensure the safety of your household.

Plus, when your alarm goes off, you can receive direct notifications on your smartphone or tablet and watch real-time footage of the event via your integrated security cameras.

Add Home Value

According to a survey by Coldwell Banker, 59 percent of parents with children under 18 say they would spend more money on a new home if it had smart home products already installed. That means, by merely laying the groundwork for your smart alarm system, you can start adding value to your home.

Also, 78 percent of the same respondents said that the smart products in their home helped them achieve peace of mind. That’s an essential factor to consider, especially if you have children in your home.

Start Small

Additionally, many homeowners find that the idea of investing in a total smart home system is daunting. They’re typically concerned with how they’ll use it on a day-to-day basis and skeptical about the amount of value it will add to their lives.  But the beauty of a smart home is that it’s completely scalable, and you can add the components you want over time.

Starting with a smart alarm or another security device will help you get a sense of how you can interact with your technology. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to get the most out of it, even before you invest in a total home solution.
