Integrating Home Security Into Your Home Design

May 19, 2012 Comments Off on Integrating Home Security Into Your Home Design


The simple facts prove that homes with security systems are passed over by criminals for easier targets. Also, monitored home security systems save families from fire and carbon monoxide around the clock every day of the year. However, there are a few things to consider when integrating a new security system into one’s personal home design:

Go Wireless 

Wireless technology makes a good security system great. Vivint security offers state-of-the art systems that meet these needs. Vivint uses the latest digital wireless sensors to protect the perimeter doors and windows as well as wireless smoke, fire and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors.

Modern wireless sensors fit in with any decor and are unobtrusive. Recessed door sensors hide out of sight with no need to knock holes in the walls to run wires. The modules for windows are about the size of a pack of gum. Remote key fobs to arm and disarm perimeter security are tiny and fit on a keychain.

Remote Access 

The best thing to come along with security systems is remote access from smartphones and computers. There are wireless video cameras to add to a system that are small and inconspicuous yet allow visual monitoring of the home even from a smartphone. Check on the kids or pets at home anytime. Take a look at what the cameras are seeing even when on vacation. Forget to arm the system? No problem. Just log in from a smartphone app and do it remotely.

The New Sensors Make Integration Easy 

No one wants a big camera hanging from the ceiling that makes a home look like a convenience store or bank. Also, no one wants to have big ugly magnets with protruding wires screwed into that new oak door that was added during renovations. The latest sensor technology is small and color neutral to blend in with any decor. Every window and every door can be protected with tiny wireless sensors that run on easily replaceable lithium batteries that run for years.

It used to be that installing a home security system required major work to run the cables to each sensor. Now everything from the cameras to the smoke detectors are wireless and can be attached out of the way so as to not interfere with any home design or decor. The new shapes and plain white color of the sensors, cameras and touchpad LCD control panels blend with any home color scheme.
