Home security continually evolves. If you don’t have a security system or if it’s been a while since you installed your system, there are plenty of exciting, new security and automation devices to consider. It is easy to schedule a “limited touch” security consultation and installation at home or business that includes the latest home security and automation devices. A properly set up security system is something we can “set and forget,” using it faithfully every day and know that it’s there protecting you, loved ones and property!
Initially, a free home security consultation through a phone call or at location visit can help determine where you might benefit most from new security devices or energy savings from home automation. It’s a good idea to schedule a home security review anytime your schedule has changed, or you have had work done on your home.
The following are the most popular home security products that homeowners and businesses have been requesting:

Life safety sensor detection devices for smoke, fire and carbon monoxide – are also very popular and easy home security upgrades or add-ons to a new system.
Smoke, fire and carbon monoxide detectors help alert you to danger so you can escape. If your home security system is monitored 24/7 by an alarm monitoring center, emergency personnel will also be notified. This means help can be sent whether you are home or not or can’t get to the phone. Early detection of smoke and carbon monoxide is invaluable in saving lives and property.
Flood detection sensors – Water leak devices also are very popular and help prevent costly water damage to your home or business typically used for hot water heaters, washers and even interior a/c units. These devices can be added to your complete home security system so that you are alerted via your alarm panel, mobile app, Apple Watch or our alarm monitoring center.
Often, insurance companies provide a discount on your insurance premium when you have 24/7 monitoring for these costly threats.
Glass break sensors from Alert 360 protect your home by listening for the frequency of the sound made by broken glass. The sensors report directly to the Alert 360 system control panel in the event that glass is broken and will send an alarm to the Alert 360 monitoring center. Adding glass break detection is especially important during times of increased crime and if you’ve added on to your home.

Home Security, Home Automation Upgrades Add Convenience
While the above home security features provide increased security, many security devices also offer convenience and energy savings. These include:
Smart, keyless door locks – Keyless door locks can easily replace your existing deadbolts, doorknobs, or levers and provide convenient code access to your home. These locks can also provide door lock/unlock access through our Alert 360 app. Smart locks are especially handy if your children have grown and come and go a lot or forget their keys. Remote door lock and unlock features are also helpful for second homes, allowing vendors or caretakers to easily enter. Smart locks can help ensure deliveries are made safely and your package is secure. Simply unlock and lock a door – whether you are upstairs or across the country – to allow the package to be placed inside. Bonus: If you have a doorbell camera or outdoor security camera, you can view the package being delivered and speak to the driver as well.
Remote Garage Door Controller – Similar to smart entry door locks, remote control of your garage door can be a lifesaver! Imagine no more worry about whether you left the garage door open. With the addition of a smart garage door controller, you can open or close it while away or upstairs. This is another helpful way to ensure deliveries can be placed inside and then protected with a closed door no matter where you are. Along with the front door, garages often are an easy and common entry point for thieves. The ability to ensure this area of your home is secure offers additional peace of mind and protection.
Smart thermostat – As a top-rated local home security company, Alert 360 often offers home automation and smart devices as part of their products and services. This allows homeowners to create a total, smart home that’s secure and reduces energy use. At Alert 360, we offer an Energy-Star Certified smart thermostat, which can help save up to 15 percent of the energy you use on heating and cooling. Our smart thermostat doesn’t rely on one room to determine the temperature. It can also easily be controlled by your smartphone, tablet, Apple Watch or computer, using our Alert 360 app.
Easy Home Security Upgrades Create Secure, Connected Home
For many homeowners who started with a basic home security package, these additions are easy and impactful upgrades.
