6 Ways That Smart Home Devices Can Either Scare Them Off Or Alert You To A Burglary In Progress

While you’re out of town chasing the sun, it’s easier for thieves to case your house for a quick plunder. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, burglaries are around 10% more likely in the summer than in the winter, a number that makes sense when you think of people leaving windows and patio doors open to let in the fresh air. Unfortunately, they also give bad guys good opportunities to get in and out.

Cameras

The next generation of Honeywell Total Connect Video now includes high-definition indoor that allows end-users to capture crisp, clear video of events and activities from Honeywell Total Connect 2.0.

The new indoor IPCAM-WIC2 captures up to 1080p at 30 frames per second and offers a wide angle view of up to four detection zones.

With the simple QR code-based setup, this new camera line is faster and easier to install which can increase your overall number of installs per day.

The built-in SD card ensures backup storage in the event of an internet outage and offers the option for 7-day or 30-day video storage. Night vision for low-light environments, digital zoom capabilities and flexible mounting options provide peace of mind for your customers—and make these new cameras an easy sell for you.

Camera

Outdoor cameras can be great for seeing who’s coming into your home, but burglars don’t typically walk through the front door. Instead, they inspect your place for blind spots where they can slip in undetected. This device is a good solution for making sure all your hard-to-see nooks are being monitored.

Data suggests that burglars ring your doorbell to find out if you’re home or away. SkyBell has already helped customers prevent break-ins before they happen, keep their homes and families safe.

Motion Sensor

The main purpose of motion detection is to sense an intruder and send an alert to your control panel, which alerts your monitoring center. Sensors work when you are not home, or when you tell the system you are not there. Some security systems can be programmed to record events via a security camera when motion is detected.

Motion sensors stand guard, ready to react to various situations, such as movement in your living room, windows or doors being opened or closed, or a broken window.
