3 Reasons You Might Need a Smarter Home Surveillance System

One of the most popular home security upgrades we see across Rehoboth Beach and broader Delaware is smart home surveillance systems, and for good reason. Today’s latest home security solutions offer a proactive way to protect your home with around-the-clock monitoring, real-time mobile alerts, remote access capability, and much more.

Is your home security system up to date? Keep reading below for three reasons why you should consider going smarter.

Reason #1: You’re Going on an Extended Vacation Soon

As we quickly approach the holiday season, you may be planning an extended vacation to visit family and friends for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the like. Leaving your home for any period of time puts your property in danger of potential intrusion, and without a smart home security system, you won’t know of any damage until after it’s too late.

When you upgrade to smart home security cameras from Luma Surveillance, you’ll never lose connection to your home when you’re away. Check in on your entire property at any time of day or night using the Luma mobile app that integrates with your cameras to give you crystal-clear live and recorded footage of what’s happening at home. Easily pause, rewind, and jump to live feed using the intuitive Luma interface and feel confident that your home is under careful watch.

For more proactive protection, you can integrate your Luma cameras with a smart home system from ELAN to not only check in on your home but remotely lock your doors, arm your property, integrate exterior lights to turn on when motion is detected, send real-time alerts to your phone in the event of a break-in, and more. ELAN and Luma Surveillance put comprehensive home security in the palm of your hand.

Reason #2: You’re Expecting Visitors this Holiday Season

If you’re hosting an extended family get-together at your home this year, you can expect your guests to arrive at different times, which means you’ll need to be available to greet them and let them into your home. But what if you’re out running errands when they arrive?

A smart home security system gives you total access to your home, no matter where you are, so you can instantly unlock your door for invited guests even if you aren’t there. Personalize your ELAN smart home system to alert you when guests arrive to your front door and use your ELAN mobile app to view live footage of who is at the door. If it’s your expected guests, use your app to unlock the door and disarm your home so your guests can enter peacefully. Once they’ve entered, use your app again to secure your home one more until you arrive.

Reason #3: You Often Receive Packages to Your Door

Package theft is at an all-time high, thanks to the rising era of online shopping. Nearly everyone has experienced package theft in their lifetime, and with the upcoming holidays, you certainly don’t want your family’s delivered presents disappearing before you can get to them. However, a smart home security system can help not only to deter theft but also to identify the culprit even after they’ve run away.

The visual display of cameras on your front porch is a helpful first step in preventing theft. Package pirates are much less likely to steal from your porch if they see security cameras installed nearby. Smart security cameras that integrate with your ELAN smart home can send you real-time alerts of motion detected on your porch so you can instantly check to see if your package arrived or if it’s been stolen.

High-definition security cameras from Digital Watchdog feature high-quality images in any resolution, but their higher resolution cameras deliver forensic details with zooming capability so you can instantly see important features like car license plates that will help identify the thief when reporting the crime to local authorities. What’s more, Smart IR technology adjusts the image during the day and night to prevent excessive illumination on crucial objects in front of the scene and offers clear image without any loss of detail. Integrate your Digital Watchdog cameras with your ELAN smart home for more comprehensive monitoring and control of your front porch and any other area of your property that may be susceptible to theft.
