“In 2016, U.S. households experienced 15.9 million property crimes – a rate of 119.4 per 1,000 households.”

Between June 2016 and July 2017, 381,367 burglaries occurred in cities with a population over 100,000. So, you have two options – stay at home 24/7 to personally protect your home, personal belongings, and family, or you can employ a security system with professional monitoring. Canary security systems offer some pretty advanced home automation options; perfect for those of you who prefer a system that can integrate with mobile and even Smart Home products.

Why is Integration Important in a World Driven by Technology?

In the 1950s, the dad went to work every morning, and the mom cared for the family, children, and home. Fast forward 60+ years and things have changed quite a bit. Technology has changed the way we live, breathe, and protect ourselves. With the advent and subsequent popularity of “smart home” technology – integration is more critical than ever before.

  • Forgot to lock the front door, that’s okay you can log in to your security app and lock the door from anywhere.
  • Someone knocking on your door when you’re having dinner alone with the children? Open an app to see, hear, and interact.
  • Hear a noise in the middle of the night, press a button and your professional monitoring service instantly dispatches police, fire, and ambulance.

In this era of technology – integration is not just important, it’s necessary.


What Integration Does Canary Security Systems Offer?

Canary security systems offer three security camera options:

  • All-in-One – combines air monitor, camera, and siren
  • View – indoor camera
  • Flex – an indoor/outdoor HD camera that’s weatherproof and portable

All three cameras work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Here’s the home integration!

How Does Protect America Differ From Canary Security Systems?

Canary security systems offer state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. Protect America takes that a few steps forward with a high-tech control panel, multiple sensors, and even a smoke detector monitored 24/7 – just like the rest of your home.

  • Touchscreen Panel – quickly track the system with an easy-to-use icon-based interface. Windows, doors and, motion detector sensors are all shown separately, so you can see what’s secure and what’s not.
  • HD Cameras – every system is set up with HD home security cameras. The two-way audio allows the user to listen and speak to the person(s) in the room. When away from home, the remote security system integrates with your mobile phone with 720p HD pictures. Night vision is also available.
  • Door, Window and Motion Detectors – secure all home entrances with wireless microsensors and heat-sensitive motion detectors. The motion detectors even allow the pet (as long as they are under 40 pounds) to walk around as part of the family without setting off an alarm.
  • Monitored Smoke Detector – Sometimes security is not about keeping someone out, but about getting your family out in the case of a fire. A monitored smoke detector contacts local emergency authorities when triggered, even if it’s 2 AM.
  • Home Automation/Integration – Z-Wave technology is at the heart of smart home integration. All Protect America products use this technology, as do products like Ring, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant – so they integrate perfectly from the moment your system is set up.

Other home integration options include garage door controls, smart door locks, and smart lighting.

You Don’t Have to Be a Victim

4 Tips to Improve Your Security Right Now!

No home security system will protect you, your family, or your home if it is not in proper working order, or if you give burglaries an easy target.

“In 2016, U.S. households experienced 15.9 million property crimes – a rate of 119.4 per 1,000 households.”

You don’t have to be a statistic. HD home security systems are a good start, but simple changes can boost your protection EVEN MORE, and each only takes a few minutes or less.


  • Do not share travel information over social media. What better way for burglars to know when to attack than to wait for you to tell them the house will be empty.
  • Establish SECURE passwords to your home internet. Using your birth date as your internet password? Hackers love that kind of thing. Complex and long passwords reduce the risk of someone hacking into your system and looking at you through the cameras.
  • Test system as instructed. Every security company suggests a test schedule to ensure your system is in top working order.

Check the condition of all security units weekly, including motion sensors, door and window sensors, and all other integrated equipment.

Home security systems are more important than ever before. You know how the teenagers down the street are listening to vinyl right now? Intruders are going old school too. Breaking into your home is much easier than breaking into your personal information or bank account – don’t give them a way in.
