Protect Your Property With a Smart Home Surveillance System

Home surveillance systems allow users to monitor their homes remotely in real-time, using a networked mobile device. A typical home surveillance system includes:



  • Base station

  • Motion sensors

  • Security cameras

  • Key fobs

  • Smart keypad

  • Glass break sensors

  • Sirens

  • Panic alarms


The smart home security devices used in a smart home surveillance system allow it to monitor safety and security threats. Here are some benefits of a home surveillance system that homeowners and businesses in Sonoma County can experience with a proper surveillance system.


Difficult to Disable


Unlike traditional wired security systems, smart home surveillance systems use wireless technology. A traditional hardwired system uses a telephone line to communicate with the central command. An intruder can easily disable it by cutting the line.


Hacking or bypassing a wireless system is more difficult than a wired one. To disable your wireless surveillance system, an intruder must carry out a direct, targeted attack, which involves a lot of effort and know-how. They also need to know the tech specifications of your setup and must keep jamming your signal. Many smart home surveillance systems include anti-jamming protocols designed to keep hackers out. No wonder home security experts consider smart home surveillance systems one of the most effective burglar deterrents.


Control Access


Your house is a hub of activity, whether you are at home or away. Delivery persons make deliveries regularly and tradespeople access your home to install, repair, and maintain household appliances. With smart door locks, you can remotely open the garage or mudroom for deliveries and rearm the system once the door is closed.


When a plumber or electrician requests access to certain areas of your home, you can use your smart cameras to monitor their activity and ensure they do not stray to other parts of your house.


Lower Home Insurance Rates


When determining your home insurance rate, your insurance company will evaluate the steps you take to secure your home.


Fewer claims mean more profit for insurance companies. Since homes with smart home surveillance systems are less likely to be broken into, many insurance companies offer discounts on their homeowners insurance premium between 5-20% to homeowners who use smart home surveillance systems to secure their homes, depending on the type of smart devices used.


Thwart Break-in Attempts


A smart home surveillance system can sabotage the nefarious plans of home intruders trying to gain access to your home by alerting you and law enforcement authorities on time. Even if a burglar successfully executes a burglary, your smart cameras can ‘catch them in the act’ and provide important information to the police to bring them to justice.
