Wireless technology improves home securityWith technological innovations bombarding the market place, there are new solutions for home security that are worth investigating. This post will alert you to some of the possibilities now available to those of you who are thinking about upgrading your home security systems.

Get smart with a smart home

With wireless devices becoming increasingly popular (and landlines less so) it makes sense to have an automated system in your home which you can operate from wherever you are. With a click on your cell phone or mobile device, you can activate lights or lock doors in your home. You can fit devices to your locks, windows, TV, thermostats and so on and monitor activity in different parts of your home.

Having a smart home is a great way to improve your home security. However one of the most important features of any home security system is to have good locks in place. A professional locksmith will be happy to advise you on the best types of lock for your home – all doors and windows as well as fitting them for you.

Use wireless not landline

Many of us are cancelling our landline telephone services and relying on wireless and our mobile devices for communication. Because of this growing trend, companies such as ADT are now offering features such as Safewatch CellGuard, so that your home security service works without a landline.

Alarm.com and iControl also have mobile solutions for home security so that you can control your home security system remotely. This makes it infinitely easier to monitor when you are on the move.

If you still have your landline and do not wish to cancel it, you can take advantage of the mobile option by having it as a back-up or using a dual system for enhanced home security. If there is a disruption to services that communicate with the security service you use via your landline, the mobile service will kick in and do the job for you.

Bear in mind that using a wireless system rather than a conventional landline will save you money on your monthly bills, which is a good incentive to change.

Install new wireless home security systems

The new type of wireless home security systems are easier to install than those with wires which were previously needed to make a security system function. Wireless means just that- no more wires are necessary and so this make it easier to install a home security system, and in turn this makes installation cheaper than ever before. It also means that where your sensors are located is not determined by the wiring system and this new flexibility improves your home’s security.

You can even install these new systems for yourself which further lowers the cost of installation.
