Even while you are home, it can be hard not to stress over your family’s protection as they sleep. However, you can rest assured that what matters most to you will be kept safe and sound when you integrate your security system with a home automation system like Control4. Some of the benefits of a connecting your home security system with Control4 are;

Smart Surveillance Cameras

Did you know you can check in on your entire household from anywhere in the world? With the Control4 app on your smartphone or tablet, you can watch live and recorded footage from the connected surveillance cameras throughout your indoor and outdoor living spaces. Whether you simply want to check on the outdoor plants, watch your dog from your desk at work, or scan the premises right before bed, you will have immediate access to your home from any location and at any time of the day or night. Want to take your surveillance to the next level? Set up your system so that you receive alerts on your smart device when any movement is detected.

Smart Alarms & Locks

Giving your property a secure perimeter of protection can help you rest easy at night or while you are away on vacation. With an integrated alarm system, you can easily lock, arm, and disarm your home from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet no matter where you are.

Arming your alarm and locking your doors with the Control4 app is as easy as tapping a button. But if you leave home in a hurry and are uncertain whether your entryways were secured, you can easily check the status on your smart device and then lock or unlock your doors remotely as necessary.

You are also able to decide who has access to your home when you are not there with personalized codes or by remotely communicating with visitors through a video intercom when they ring your doorbell. Monitoring and managing who enters and leaves your home, as well as ensuring your entryways are locked from the convenience of your smart device, gives you peace of mind in the palm of your hand.

Smart Lighting & Shading Control

Smart lighting and shading are not only great for added convenience and ambiance throughout your home, but these solutions can also significantly improve your home’s security. With Control4, you can create an “Away” scene that locks your doors, arms your alarm, and adjusts your home’s lights and shades at certain intervals throughout the day to make it look as though someone is home. Potential burglars will think twice before attempting a break-in if they notice lights turning on and off and shades moving up and down throughout the day. By integrating your home security system with a home automation system by Control4, you will always be connected to what matters most to you. Enjoy full access and control of your home’s security from the comfort of your couch or from the other side of the world—all from the same app. Upgrade to a smart home security system!
