Smith Home Security System is a home security services provider with affordable alarm monitoring for residential customers throughout Texas. Smith Monitoring is now part of the Reliant Security Company.
What Services Are Provided?
As part of Reliant Security, Smith Home Security provides fire, burglary and panic monitoring 24/7 and 365 days a year. With home automation options, it’s easy to control the homes temperature, lights, security system and more. By using a mobile application, homeowners can arm or disarm the system, access cameras and lock doors. They can also receive notifications and alerts about the status of their security system. There is professional installation, where a licensed technician will install equipment and show the features to customers.
Equipment and How it Works
There are different packages available, but the main pieces of equipment include the full color control panel, motion detector, and door and window sensors. There are outdoor camera, indoor camera and video doorbell options in advanced packages to give customers full coverage for their home.
The system works like many other similar home security systems. The sensors will detect any motion outside, or if a window or door is opened. The sensors then communicate with the control panel, where alarm codes are stored and processed. The control panel will then communicate with the monitoring center for follow up if a threat is detected. If the threat is valid and was not caused by an accident, the dispatchers at the monitoring center will send the right emergency response to assist the homeowner.
The motion detectors are wireless and can be programmed to recognize and not respond when a pet smaller than 55 pounds walks through the yard. This will help cut down on the amount of false alarms. The door and window sensors can be added to any door, window or cabinet, even the fridge. The full color control panel is one of the most important pieces of equipment and connects the whole system together.
The system uses cellular connection that is always on so it can’t be cut, and will still work even if the panel is damaged.
Since the connection is always on, it also keeps the software up to date. There are many benefits to having a security system that doesn’t require a landline and uses cellular technology instead.
The benefits of installing a No Land Line Security System include:
- A system that always works
- Never having to worry about down or cut phone lines
- Added safety over systems using older technology
- Ability to automate certain features of the home
- Ability to monitor the house from anywhere
- Reduced phone bill costs by eliminating the landline
If there is already a security system in place, it may be compatible with the Smith Home Security system. In addition, the existing system may be able to be upgraded so that it works with cellular technology and not a landline.
Additional equipment to keep the house safe includes door and window sensors, carbon monoxide detectors, glass break detectors, keypads, thermostats, image sensors, night vision cameras and a Wi-Fi doorbell camera.
Benefits of Video Monitoring
Smith Home Security has upgraded video systems that allow customers to see what is going on at home no matter where they are. Whether you want to check if your kids got home from school or sneak a peek at the shipment you’ve been waiting for that’s sitting on your porch until you get home from work, the video system will quickly become your best friend.
In addition to checking up on your family, video monitoring allows you to be notified when a possible intruder gets close to your property. Acting the same way as door sensors, the video system will alert you when it is triggered and can connect with the security company for follow up when needed. How important are security systems? According to SafeWise, about 60% of convicted burglars stated the presence of a security system influenced their decision to target another home.
