How We Integrate Security Into Your Home
One of the biggest challenges homeowners face with a smart home is having all devices communicate together. My Home IQ overcomes this challenge by integrating your security system to work with all smart devices in your home.
How do we do it?
Through a bridge that allows all of your home’s automated options and devices to communicate simultaneously. That’s a safe way for us to say that our security technicians are, well, really smart!
Additionally, you’ll also have door sensors, window & glass sensors, toxin detectors, leak detectors and motion detectors with alarms for your home.
Your Options For Security Alarms & Notifications
Everyone’s interest in keeping their home or property secure is generally the same, but how they want notified can vary.
One of the benefits we can offer is allowing you to monitor your home based on your level of preventive intrusion settings and notifications.
Here is a list of your security alarm notification options.
There’s more to home audio systems than just enjoying a better cinematic experience. Your home’s audio speakers can be tied into your security system. The noise settings and alert sound warnings are optional at your discretion to select.
The lights that you have set up within your home’s smart system can be adapted to flash and interact with the alarm in the event of a break-in or other security breach. You may also select the color options of your flashing lights. Popular color combinations are recommended to be red and blue.
One of the more advanced features of this option is, for instance, if you happen to have an intruder in your home, the lights, once integrated with the motion sensors can be controlled to only function in the room that the intruder may be in.
If you choose, only the specific room that’s currently being intruded upon can have the lights flashing, which offers safer and easier ways to detect where the intruder is located.
- Text Notification
Not every alert is an emergency. Maybe the kids in the neighborhood were playing and their ball accidentally went through your window. Is this cause for alerting the authorities? Maybe and maybe not, but wouldn’t it be nice to decide for yourself? With My Home IQ you can do just that by setting up your notification options to include text message alerts.
Beyond Security, What Else Is There?
Securing and protecting your home doesn’t just pertain to burglary prevention, it can relate to so much more.
Here is a list of additional security options that can help protect your family and your home from other harmful scenarios.
- Toxic Detection
Detect what is lingering in your home. Harmful toxins such as carbon monoxide can often go undetected. If you have anything in your home operating with gas, you’re especially at risk. Your system can be set up to monitor everything from heat, smoke, fire as well as high levels of CO and CO2.
- Mother Nature’s Elements
You may want your home to notify you in the event of extreme weather conditions. Although our smart climate control options are fully capable of adapting to your home’s temperature preferences, you may additionally prefer to be notified as well. Whether you want to prevent your pipes from freezing due to cold weather or if your home begins to flood, your My Home IQ security system can be set up to monitor the safety and functionality of your home.
- Health & Safety
Your security system can be set up for notifying emergency services in the unfortunate event that you or one of your family members is in need. This may pertain to the need for medical attention or law enforcement, but regardless of the emergency, our voice activated security options will allow you to call for help.
- Fraud Prevention
In today’s world, protecting yourself against those looking to gain by means of self-staged harm is no laughing matter. With our video surveillance systems you’ll be able to have a constant watch by recording all areas of your home. This will not only provide protection, but also provide accurate and recorded documentation on what really happened at your property.
My Home IQ Vs. Other Smart Home Security Companies In Lexington
My Home IQ gives the control back to the consumer.
Most home security companies in Lexington, KY offer monitored security systems. They are designed to receive an alert or an alarm and their processes for notification can be lingering. First, they call the customer to verify. If no answer, then they will call the secondary contact. It’s only at this point do they finally decide to call the authorities. This process takes too long and doesn’t really benefit the customer with immediate awareness.
We put the control back in your hands and you are immediately alerted when an alarm is triggered. If you are at home you can immediately alert the authorities, but since you have a smart home there may not be much need to do so. When your alarm sounds, its loud, and the lights flash blue and red throughout the whole house instantly alerting your intruder that they have been detected.
Trust My Home IQ for a safer and smarter security system for your home or business in Lexington, KY.
