How to Determine the Right Security System for Your Home

Choosing the right security system for your home can be stressful. With so many different types of systems, it can be difficult to determine where to start. Our experts at Coggin Security want to make this task as seamless as possible. Whether you need a security system for a commercial property or for your own home, there’s an option for you. Here are some tips for how to determine the right security system for your home.

Video Doorbell

An increasingly popular solution to home security is the popular residential security camera video doorbell. The video doorbell is essentially a doorbell that captures video at all times and directly notifies you if there is movement at your front door. Most devices allow for two-way communication. This is a way to instruct a delivery person when you are not home, or view visitors before you open the door. Video doorbells are relatively inexpensive and a good video doorbell can add an extra level of protection for you and your family.

Door/Window Sensor

Another security measure to take is to add window and door sensors. Having sensors installed at every entry point can reduce the threat of an intruder. If that door or window is opened, your alarm will activate. 

Motion Sensor

Although motion sensors shouldn’t be your sole system, they are an added layer of security. When the sensor detects movement, it will activate the alarm and the authorities if you do not respond. Some motion sensors can determine the difference between humans and animals. 

Smart Home Integration 

Home security systems are becoming smarter.  Through apps that can connect to your system, you can control your home from afar. You’re able to turn lights on and off, lock doors, set or shut off your alarm, and adjust the thermostat. Usually, these systems use wireless connections, and it’s important to use a private network for security purposes. At Coggin Security, we offer highly-customizable security systems with many different features to best fit your home’s needs.

Now that you’ve narrowed down your options for determining the right security system for your home, you can better determine which would be the right fit for your needs. It’s important to consider if you want a certain size system, and determine your budget. Contact Coggin Security when you are ready to discuss your options.
