Things to Know About Smart Security
We Are More encourages everyone to thoroughly think through their decisions when wanting to implement new features in their homes, offices, and any other property. Installations of any kind should be done after consideration of pros and cons. We’ve put together a little checklist to make smart security an easier decision as it applies (and doesn’t apply) to your personal needs.
The Pros of Smart Security
Doesn’t hurt to spend a dime on something that protects your fortunes.
-Easy management of alarms
Want your smart alarms to go off with certain things but not others? No problem, We Are More can install smart security to work with your wants and needs.
-Catch things before they happen
How nice would it be to detect a water leak before it floods your house? Or to catch a burglar before they steal anything from your shop? Very!
-Monitor and control from anywhere in the world
Being able to view and monitor your property even when you’re on vacation or just across the street at the neighbors house, is a great feature.
-Less stress and more sleep
If you’re an avid worrier when it comes to what’s most important, put your mind at ease and just get smart security installed!
-Lighting and shading control
Lighting and shading can be included with or added to most smart security installations. Check with We Are More to match you with the right provider before installations.
-Customizable and able to link with other smart devices
Smart security is able to connect with other devices, such as lighting (mentioned above), Amazon Alexa, and other smart appliances.
-Increased home value
If you ever decide to move, leaving your smart security connected to your house will automatically allow the value of your home to increase. “Also includes smart security” is a great line to have in your home description for buyers.
-Did we mention SAFETY
Let’s not forget to state the obvious; smart security keeps you, your home, belongings, family, employees, and treasures SAFE.
These are only a few practical benefits that some people might overlook. Take some time to research smart security and add to your own pros list.
The Cons of Smart Security
The CONS list actually took me a while to come up with, but here’s what I got.
-Power outages may affect your security
But they don’t have to. Get a security system that has a backup energy source, like solar powered cameras. Yes, those are a thing, and We Are More would be more than happy to set you up with them.
-Finding a fit for your specific needs
Please don’t just choose a random system because it looks nice or the price seems right. You will want smart security that caters specifically to what you’re looking for.
Smart security often runs off of Bluetooth connections. Making sure to have a reliable WIFI server plays an important part in security systems.
Yes, most security systems are compatible with other smart devices, but making sure you have the correct compatible devices is crucial. Though smart systems can pair with multiple devices, not every device is programmed to sync with a smart system.
No matter the pros and cons, we know protecting what’s important will always be a priority. With that in mind, what’s the hold up? Call We Are More for a free consultation on quality and efficient smart security.
