Say you live in a growing city such as Austin, Texas, with a population soon to be or already exceeding 1 million residents. Now, say you’re moving your family to the town of your dreams – a new job, a new home, and new everything. You forgot one thing, the crime rate. You live in a “good” neighborhood, so there was never a second thought.
The 2017 Austin Police Department crime statistics tells another tale. There were 29, 254 arrests for burglary and theft alone!
So, now, what do you do? You can’t pick up and move. Thus, the best option is to find the best home security system to protect you, your family and your belongings.
Someone’s home security shouldn’t be a joke.
What are My Options?
You have options, but you’ll find home security systems divide into two categories – monitored and unmonitored.
Benefits of Monitoring vs. Unmonitoring
Monitored systems include companies monitored by professionals or you can self-monitor. Then, you have the option of unmonitored services including control panels, sensors, smoke detectors and more. Having a monitored service give you the piece of mind that you and your loved ones are safe and secure. Unmonitoring isn’t less safe, it’s just not the same.
One option offering both monitored and unmonitored products is Samsung wireless security systems.
Samsung Wireless Security Products
As of now, Samsung only offers eight products under the home security systems line, including:
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Home Security Starter Kit
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Home Safety Expansion Pack
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Water Leak Detector
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Motion Detector
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Keychain Remote
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Carbon Monoxide Alarm
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Door and Window Detector
- Samsung SmartThings ADT Smoke Alarm
The products REQUIRE ADT Security Hub before use. There are additional Samsung home security systems NOT on the official website falling under the unmonitored category.
