The Features People Want Most in a Home Security System


When deciding on the perfect home security system for your home, you have many features to choose from. It can be helpful to know what most people are looking for. Here are the most in-demand home security system features:

Professionally Monitored

According to a recent survey, 93% of Americans consider professional monitoring to be the most important feature for a home security system. If someone attempts to break into your home, it’s not enough for an alarm to sound- the local authorities also need to be notified immediately. Our home security systems instantly detect a break-in and dispatch that information to the appropriate authorities as well as notifying you.

Remote Access

Another increasingly popular home security feature is remote access. With remote access, you can monitor your home security system, log in to the video feed if you have security cameras installed, arm or disarm your security system, and even open or close smart locks all from a simple app on your smartphone.

Integrate with Home Automation

More and more homeowners are interested in integrating their home security system with home automation features. This allows you to easily control your home’s temperature, lighting, and even your HVAC system remotely using the same interface as your security system.

Ease of Use

People want a home security system that is both robust and easy to use. Our at-home panels and smartphone apps are intuitive and easy to learn, even for the less tech-savvy members of your family.
