Home Automation - The Benefits of Home Security

by Product Specialist

Secure your household and protect your family from anywhere in the world by integrating your home automation system with a comprehensive security suite. Through the power of home automation you can manage your home's security system over the Internet using a multitude of devices, such as your smartphone, tablet, computer -- or even your television. Forbes magazine says that while home automation was previously only found in luxury homes, the emergence of smart devices have increased automation capabilities and home security for the everyday consumer.



An automated security system enables you to remotely control the access to your home. If you need to let a maintenance person in while you're not home, you can log on to your surveillance system from your smartphone, unlock your door and then disable the alarm. You can also monitor your security cameras to ensure that your home is safe while you're away.

Automation enables you to automatically protect your home from unsafe conditions, including water pipe damage, heater malfunctions and electrical failures. You can also integrate home appliances with your security system. For example, a light near your entrance can automatically turn on whenever you arrive home, or change colors to warn potential intruders that your security system is armed.

You can also receive alerts based on events that are occurring in your home, such as a door being opened or motion being detected. Integrating your home automation system with a security system gives you more control over your home, loved ones and personal possessions.


Home automation connects appliances and other systems in your environment to one another over a network creating what's commonly known as "the Internet of Things." According to a recent study published by the International Journal for Advance Research in Computer Science and Management Studies, automation leverages these items in your home "to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security."

Combining home automation with a comprehensive security system enhances your lifestyle while increasing your personal safety.
