Home Safety Features You Absolutely Need in Your Home

We’ll Review the Essential Safety & Security Additions for Your Alpharetta Home.

Home Safety Features You Absolutely Need in Your Home

Every homeowner has unique safety and security needs for their property, but there are several basics you should know before you begin to add home safety features to your Alpharetta, GA home. Some homeowners opt to go the DIY route by adding one smart device at a time, creating a Frankenstein’s monster of a security system where all of the devices don’t cohesively function as one robust unit. Several apps are necessary to run that type of system setup, and you’re left switching between apps on your smartphone just trying to turn the alarm off.

A custom installer can solve that fragmented system problem by designing a fully integrated home safety system.  

This blog will cover the essentials for which smart devices you should consider when selecting home security features in your Alpharetta, GA home. Keep reading to learn more.

CAMERAS

If you’re interested in monitoring specific areas of your Alpharetta home or property, then adding a security camera is an excellent idea for you. When looking at security camera options, be sure to consider where you want to place the cameras and make sure a battery backup is available in case of a power outage. 

Cameras can be placed indoors or outdoors, facing entry points such as the front door or a gate, and some can even pan, swivel, or tilt. 

For extra security at your front door, consider a video doorbell. A video doorbell allows you to monitor and receive alerts when there is motion nearby, or when someone rings your doorbell. Two-way communication is also a safety feature which will enable you to speak to the person standing at your door while you aren’t home or don’t want to get up from the comfy recliner.    

You can integrate smart locks, and also motion, window, and door sensors into your comprehensive home safety features plan.

LIGHTING

Lighting is one home safety feature you don’t want to forget. You can add lighting outside your Alpharetta home, along pathways, and around entries to ensure safe travels for your family while discouraging potential thieves from finding advantageous hiding spots.

With smart indoor lighting, you can adjust lights to fit your mood – bright and festive for a holiday party or dimmed for a romantic evening dinner. No need to walk around the house to adjust the lights, either; you can use your Control4 lighting automation system to adjust the lighting indoors and outdoors by tapping your smartphone, and either selecting preset scenes or adjusting the lights on the fly.

WHOLE HOME SAFETY

Fire, carbon monoxide, and water leaks are all potential threats to your Alpharetta, GA home. Rest easy knowing your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors will integrate seamlessly into your smart home automation system. In addition to keeping you safe while you’re at home, you’ll be alerted by text or push notification if there’s an incident while you’re away.

Water leaks and moisture detection are additional safety features you can add, ensuring your home is sealed tight, and that you won’t be surprised by your next water bill. 

All of these home safety features are operable with a home automation control system designed by Atlanta Audio & Automation. In addition to being able to monitor incident alerts on your smartphone on your own, professional monitoring is also available; you can rely on an emergency response around the clock, not just when you’re available.
