house security alarm

Some models use your existing keyed cylinder and deadbolt hardware and attach to the inside of your door, while others require that you remove your existing interior and exterior escutcheons and replace the deadbolt and strike hardware. Smart locks can be opened and closed using a mobile app and will send a notification when someone locks or unlocks a door, and most allow you to create permanent and temporary access schedules for family members and friends based on specific hours of the day and days of the week. Features to look for include geofencing, which uses your phone's location services to lock and unlock the door, voice activation using Siri HomeKit, Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa voice commands, support for IFTTT, and integration with other smart home devices such as video doorbells, outdoor cameras, thermostats, smoke alarms, and connected lighting.

You need to assess your property through the eyes of a would be burglar, understand its weaknesses and then use the guide below to decide what lighting you are going to install. Main Entry Door LightingThe lighting that is around the doors of your home is one of the most important parts of your home security plans. Most burglars like to target entry doors before anything else, they offer easy entry and exit routes if not adequately protected. To improve the security of your doors consider any lighting at all to be better than no lighting. If a burglar sees lights illuminating the door areas the chances are he will select another home to visit, lighting increases his chances of being observed. If the lights are off and the door area is in the shadows the burglar will more than likely enact his plans. Front Garden and Driveway Motion DetectorsMotion activated lights can make your front garden a problem area for a potential burglar removing their ability to approach your home unseen. If you are planning to use motion detectors in the front garden, you should make sure that you have tested the installation locations carefully. You will irritate neighbours and lessen the surprise lighting effect if people walking by, or children playing in the street, frequently trigger the sensors. Rear Garden ProtectionFor the exterior of your home external lighting is definitely a good investment. The rear of the house is not seen by passing traffic affording a burglar more time to try to gain entry to your home.
