May 19, 2022|

Nevada is known for a lot of things, from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip to the mystery of Area 52 to beautiful lakes and outdoor spots. And for the 3 million people who call Nevada home, there is plenty to love.

If you live in Nevada or are considering moving there soon, keeping your home safe is a top priority, and there’s no better way to do so than with a security system. But with so many on the market to choose from, it can be a daunting task.

This guide will show you what to look for in a home security system to make your home a safer, smarter, and more comfortable place to live for the entire family

Home security systems for Nevada residents

Knowing what to look for in your alarm system is the first step in finding the best security system for your home and family.

There are a number of different types of security equipment on the market to help you keep your home safe from all types of threats, including:

Security sensors

To protect against break-ins, your home should be equipped with security sensors that will trigger the security alarm when unauthorized entry occurs. There are different types of security sensors, including:

  • Door and window sensors that sound the alarm if a door or window is opened when the alarm is set
  • Motion detectors that trigger the alarm if the sensor detects motion in a designated area
  • Glass break sensors that measure the decibel level or vibration of breaking glass, which in turn sets off the burglar alarm

Safety alarms

Environmental damage and personal emergencies can also put your home and family at risk, making safety sensors a must. Some of the most important ones include:

  • Smoke detectors that sound the alarm when fire or smoke is detected
  • Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors that alert you to the presence of deadly CO gas, which is colorless and odorless.
  • Water sensors that go off when moisture is detected, helping you stop leaks before they cause significant damage to your home.
  • Emergency pendant or senior alert bracelet that lets you or a loved one get help in an emergency with the push of a button.

Professional alarm monitoring

What happens when a sensor in your home sets off an alarm? That depends on whether you have a professionally monitored system or a self-monitored system.

With a self-monitored or DIY system, it’s up to you to assess the danger, get your family to safety, and contact emergency services. But this can be difficult if you’re away or your focus is on getting to safety.

With professional monitoring services, the monitoring center contacts authorities on your behalf, whether you’re home or away. When it comes to an emergency or threat to your home, every second counts. Professional monitoring with access to emergency response means faster help when needed. This brings peace of mind knowing that your home will be protected in an emergency even when you’re not there.

Home automation any Nevadan can use

Smart home automation lets you automate or remotely control many of the systems and devices around your home, including security, lighting, temperature, and more.

As you look for a security system, consider implementing smart home technology as well—they go hand in hand and complement your security system, making it easier to control and manage wherever you are.

There are tons of smart home devices on the market. Some of the best ones to use to make your home safer, more convenient, and more comfortable include:

  • Smart thermostat. In addition to being able to control your home’s temperature wherever you are, a smart thermostat learns your temperature preferences and sets them automatically. You’ll save energy and money without sacrificing comfort.
  • Smart locks. Smart door locks use unique codes instead of physical keys and can also be locked and unlocked with your phone. You can integrate your smart lock with your Vivint security system, so it locks automatically when you arm your system.
  • Garage door control. Forgetting to close your garage door when you’re in a hurry happens to everyone. With garage door control, you can open and close your door remotely, wherever you are.
  • Smart lighting. Turn lights on and off or dim them with your phone remotely, or set them to turn on and off automatically or after specific triggers. For example, you can set your entry lights to turn on when you unlock your front door or have your downstairs lights turn off at a certain time.
  • Security cameras. A must-have for any home security system, security cameras provide additional surveillance systems for your home. Look for cameras that provide video monitoring for the inside and outside of your home, including:
    • Doorbell cameras let you answer your door remotely with your phone. You’ll also get notifications on your phone if anyone comes to your door, whether they ring the bell or not.
    • Outdoor cameras that provide a clear view of the outside of your property, day and night. They can also proactively identify and deter lurkers.
    • Indoor cameras that help you keep an eye on kids, pets, and specific areas of your home.
    • Video playback is an important part of your home camera system as well. Look for an alarm company that provides enough storage for all your cameras so you can review your footage later.
  • Smart home control. The tools you use to control your smart home and security system will be key. Look for home security companies that provide an easy-to-use mobile app, as well as a wall-mounted control panel you can use to access your systems. For example, VIvint provides both an app and Smart Hub that let you not only control your home, but contact and communicate with the monitoring center.

If you already have smart home devices, look for a system that will integrate with your current devices. Vivint integrates with some of the most popular devices—like Nest Thermostat, Google Home, and Amazon Echo—so you can seamlessly add your new devices to your new system.
