Choosing The Best Home Security System

Picking the right home security system can be confusing.  Consider all the questions. Which brand is better? Should I use a professional installer? Are all home security apps the same? What’s the best security company? There’s a lot to discover.  To save you time, and to help you get the most protection, ease of use and everyday value, we at Prizm Fire And Systems narrowed things down to a few essential things to know. Ask these questions as you assess your options to make the smartest choice.  Will it withstand a burglar’s toolkit?  Not all security products are engineered equally. To ensure you don’t entrust your safety to a security system that can be disabled with a hand tool, make sure it has:  Crash and Smash protection. A common burglary tactic is to smash a home’s security panel to prevent it sending an emergency signal to the monitoring station. With our Alarm.com technology your security system can recognize a crash and smash attack, and signal your monitoring station regardless.  Another advantage is our dedicated cellular connection. This type of signaling technology doesn’t piggyback on your home’s broadband or phone line, and so can’t be physically cut by an intruder. Our security panels have a dedicated cellular connection with battery backup for power outages.  How many sensors does it come with?  Contact sensors are home security essentials; small devices that detect the opening and closing of doors, windows, drawers and more. Some security systems come with as little as two contact sensors, which is a problem. Burglars don’t just use the front and back door. So we offer pet immune motion sensors as well.  At Prizm Fire And Security our professionals —will work with you to determine how many contact sensors your home needs, and provide them as part of the package. The average Alarm.com-powered home has between six to twelve of these incredibly useful devices.

Does it include smart home devices?

We carry a wide range of essential smart devices, and Alarm.com is compatible with many more. You can have smart locks, a smart thermostat, connected video cameras, smart lights, a video doorbell, smart shades, connected garage door openers and more.  Controlling your Alarm.com-powered smart home is easy. Our smartphone app controls everything, or you can use your voice with Amazon Echo and Google Home. And when it comes to automation, our security technology makes the smart home even smarter.

What else does it protect you from?

The most important thing about a security system is that it has to work when you need it. When you go it alone on a security or smart home setup, what happens when a device or component of the system needs professional attention?  One of the smartest things about our Alarm.com-powered home is the proactive safeguards it provides for your family. Your system’s advanced technology detects potential danger and takes action on your behalf.  Our Insights Engine, Geo-Services and Crash and Smash protection are all examples of proactive safeguards that work on their own, using our Alarm.com‘s cloud intelligence and real-time data from devices around your home.

Is it professionally monitored?

Professional monitoring is the gold standard of home security. If there’s a break-in or fire at home, a professionally monitored security system sends an emergency signal to a 24-7 monitoring station, where a trained security professional is on hand to alert your local law enforcement or fire department.  Our Alarm.com-powered security systems are professionally monitored, because there is no effective substitute for this service. You can’t see every smartphone alert that a security system sends you, and if you’re home in an emergency, your priority is to get everyone to safety.
