residential alarm system

Hands down Lyric is the best DIY home security system today. The Lyric system controller is backward compatible with the earlier Honeywell 5800 Series wireless sensors and detectors allowing upgrade customers to reuse existing devices on the new platform. Likewise, the new SiX Series line of wireless devices are easy to install, easy to maintain and provide a higher level of security. This includes the Lyric secondary keypad LKP500 EN, Lyric Keyfob SiXFOB, Lyric Door Window Contact SiXminiCT, Lyric Motion Sensor SiXPIR, Lyric Glassbreak SiXGB, Lyric Smoke Detector SiXSMOKE, and Lyric Auxiliary Siren SiXSIREN. The series utilize a 2. 4 GHz 128 bit encryption signal to prevent possible jamming of the RF signals by sophisticated thieves which frankly is unlikely, but why not have the added protection?. The Lyric Controller can receive voice commands to control Z Wave automation smart scenes and other features with the use of it’s built in microphone. There are three basic commands the Lyric alarm control panel will understand Hello Lyric, Hello Lyric home, and OK Lyric. Once the trigger word has been stated you can then follow with your automation smart scene name such as Returning Home, Wake Up, Evening Time, or Bedtime. These scenes can include an array of Z Wave connected devices to lock/unlock a door, lower a connected thermostat, turn on/off or dim lights, close or open your garage door. The Honeywell Lyric Controller has also added integration with the new Skybell HD Video Doorbell though you will need the DBCAM version to work with Total Connect 2.

alarm systems for homes

The leaders at Defenders aren’t overly concerned. “We are excited to see new entrants in the home security industry,” Boyce said. “We believe these brands will increase consumer interest for security and smart home solutions and help grow the overall category. ”All of Defenders’ revenue comes from residential security systems installed nationwide, a total the company predicts will hit 2 million next month. It has no immediate plans to go into corporate security. “We’re good at residential and the category is growing,” Boyce said.

monitoring systems for home

That could include the ability to disarm the home alarm, lock a door, or look at security camera footage via a cellphone. But increasingly, Boyce said, smart home components include the ability to adjust components like lighting, heating and air conditioning, and appliances and devices. Defenders projects up to 97 percent of its clients will have some form of smart home technology within 12 months. “We think the residential security business will continue to grow and the growth will accelerate because there will be more smart home components,” Boyce said. That’s pretty impressive penetration considering Defenders didn’t get into smart home devices until 2014. The company then backed off of those sales for a time to re evaluate and retest the market. This year, it has jumped back in full force. “We’re a test and measure company,” Boyce said. “We test everything. We do a lot of analytics. ”That testing extends to almost every aspect of the company, from sales and marketing including how to handle in bound calls and its sales pitch to product offerings and customer service.
