When Should You Upgrade Your Home Security System?

It’s January so you might be thinking about changes you want to make in your life. While many people are setting life goals for finances or health, you should also think about your goals for your home. Whether you received monetary gifts for the holidays or you’ve been saving for the last year, you may have some available funds for improving your home’s security system.

Maybe you have a security system keypad on your wall, but you’ve just decided not to use it in the past. Sometimes when you first move into your home, you don’t have the time or money to invest in getting the existing security system up and running again. January is a great time to give a reputable security company like Guardian a call, in order to get the ball rolling.

Remember, burglaries can happen anywhere at any time of year, so a security system can almost always add peace of mind to your life.

Go From Low Tech to Smart Tech

If your security system is old and low-tech, it might be time to upgrade to a system that can be controlled from a mobile device. Depending on your system, this may be a different service level or may need some new technology. Also, in some cases, older systems may communicate through a landline. If you are looking to get rid of your landline connection or are looking for a wireless communication where a potential burglar can’t cut the phone line, it may be time to upgrade.

Updated systems can communicate via cellular service, which can add to your peace of mind. When these upgrades are being made at Guardian, you can add interactive services that allow you to control them from your phone.  If you’re looking to step your system up a notch with app access, call Guardian. If you previously had another provider, make sure you are not under a contract.

The convenience of controlling your system from anywhere you have internet access makes your security system even more useful.

Maybe you already have a modern system that you can control from your app. If you’re a Guardian customer who’s looking to add smart home devices to your home security system, now is the time.

Z-Wave Smart Controlled Devices

Z-wave controlled devices like a smart thermostat, garage door controller or light control module allows you to have even further control of your home from your mobile device. For example, you can use lighting control to make it look like someone’s home whether you are or not. Also, you can make sure a silly error like forgetting to put the garage door down doesn’t affect your home’s security for hours.

Smart devices aren’t just cool; they also allow you to manage your home security better.

Video surveillance is another way to upgrade your home security experience. From an HD Video Doorbell to an indoor or outdoor camera, you can see what’s going on in your home and record triggered video clips which you can view, share and save.

Adding surveillance cameras to your home security system gives you a firsthand view of your home’s security.
