alert monitoring

You can also use motion detected lights in this area as well. When these lights detect any type of movement in your driveway they will automatically turn on, which could easily startle a burglar. Save Energy with Solar LightingRecently solar lighting has become inexpensive and it is friendly to the environment. If you have any dark areas you can buy a small solar powered light. It will charge by sunlight during the sunshine and illuminate those dark spots at dusk without you needing to switch on the light or use a timer. This is another simple method to make your home less vulnerable to the local burglars.

00MSRPYale Assure Lock SL YRD 256 at $250. 00MSRPFriday Lock at $199. 00MSRPLockitron Bolt at $99. 00MSRPWhen we reviewed the Ecobee3 in 2015 it earned our Editors' Choice for its sleek design, numerous features, and ease of use. We also loved the inclusion of a remote sensor to help reduce hot or cold spots in different rooms. We're happy to report that the new Ecobee4 boasts all the same features as it predecessor, and more, thanks to the addition of built in Amazon Alexa voice service capabilities. That means you can have the thermostat do everything that the Amazon Echo and its siblings can, such as control smart devices, shop, play music, and hear the latest news and weather, all using Alexa voice commands. Want complete wireless supremacy over the lights in your home?The Philips Hue line delivers with bulbs that let you control not only the intensity of the light, but also the color. It can get pricey, to be sure, but the Hue ecosystem has been around long enough that it works with just about every other system out there, from Alexa, to IFTTT, to Siri using the Philips Hue Bridge. Not interested in colorful lights but still want that incredible granular control over an all white bulb?Philips has the Hue White coming in at an almost bargain price, at least for smart bulbs.

security systems columbus ohio

For someone looking for a more complex setup like home automation, or someone that wants a trained expert to make the recommendation for the setup, expert installation is a great option. We’ve found that most people that were apprehensive about self installing a home security system actually ended up finding the process very easy. There are companies out there like Frontpoint that are known to be particularly helpful in this stage. Handsfree features usually work in conjunction with your mobile device and/or your home automation system. Of course, you know you can use the voice option with Alexa and other home automation systems to control your equipment. But some security systems also have a handsfree feature that will work with your mobile device or a key fob to detect when you are within range of your system. And when you are within that range, it will automatically unlock your door and disarm your security system for you, handsfree. So if this is a convenience factor you’d like to have, then yes, you do need to look for a system that has handsfree options. Geotracking works similar to the handsfree feature. When geotracking is included with your home security system, it works with the GPS feature on your smartphone, as long as you have the location services enabled. This feature will detect your location as long as you have your phone with you and you can preset rules as to how you want to use that feature.
