Surveillance: At Smart Life we refer to surveillance as any video feed of your property. This includes traditional security cameras, door cams, and video baby monitors.
Security: For our purposes, this term is used to describe a dedicated security system that is monitored by yourself and/or a third party. This can, but does not have to, include surveillance.
Security Response: We refer synergy of your any of your subsystems, working in unison to increase the safety of your family and property as a security response. This ranges greatly depending on your preferences but often includes surveillance, key less entry, lighting control, and fire prevention systems. While it often includes a security system, it doesn’t have to.
The ability to view your home in real time puts you at ease and assures you, your home is safe. Using IP cameras you can monitor the feed from anyplace in the world. This comes in useful when your on vacation or checking in on a summer home.
Video intercoms allow for increased convince. When visitors arrive you can view the feed to see who it at the door. Depending on your preference you can choose to view this on a device, have your IP phones automatically display the the video when the the bell is rung, or both. Using keyless entry/remote access locks, you also have the ability to open your door and allow guests to enter via your device.
With night vision you no longer need put on your robe and go outside to check on that noise you heard. Simply access the feed via your computer or mobile device to see previous and real-time footage.
Indoor cameras and baby monitors are an effective way to keep an eye on your precious little one. You can entertain with ease knowing your child is sound asleep in their room. As they grow, you can use these cameras to check in on your young grade schooler to make sure their doing their homework or playing nicely with their friends when you’re in the other room.
Your lighting and shades can be integrated with your security system to trigger specific responses when your alarm is breached. For example you may choose to have your exterior lights automatically turn to illuminate the area in hopes of scaring off an intruder. Some people prefer to have all the lights in their home blink on and off so authorities can quickly identify which house is in distress.
Another option is to have the lights in your home illuminate and the shades rise in case of emergency. This will allow authorities to see who is in your home and where they are. Not only does this help identify intruders’ whereabouts, but it comes in useful in medical emergencies.
