Home security systems for New Hampshire residents

Security solutions typically have many different features and devices you can select for your home, depending on your needs and budget.

Most systems will include some combination of the following:

Security sensors

Security sensors are the tiny sensors that alert you to unauthorized entry and trigger the alarm. There are different kinds of security sensors designed to protect various entry points around your home, including the following:

  • Door and window sensors sound an alarm if a window or door is opened. According to security experts, most burglars break in through the front door or a ground-level window, making these types of sensors a must. When the alarm isn’t set, you can also set doors to chime if they are opened, which is helpful for parents of small children.

  • Motion sensors sense motion in a defined area, triggering the alarm if a person is detected in the area.
  • Glass break sensors measure the decibel levels of breaking glass, triggering the alarm if a window is broken.

Safety alarms

In addition to security sensors that protect against burglaries, safety alarms help keep your home safe from other threats. Your security services should also include the following:

  • Smoke detectors are required by law and can save lives in the event of a fire. When part of a professionally-monitored system, the monitoring services will also contact the fire department.
  • Carbon monoxide detectors alert you to the presence of carbon monoxide, a deadly gas that is also odorless and tasteless. In New Hampshire, CO detectors are also required in all residences. You can also find combination smoke alarms and CO detectors, like these from Vivint.
  • Water sensors may not save your life like smoke or CO alarms, but they can help save your wallet from the expense of flooding and water damage. These small devices are placed in areas of your home prone to leaks, like water heaters or washing machines, and will sound an alert and send a notification to your phone if moisture is detected.

  • Emergency pendants are small devices that can be worn around the neck or wrist that provide immediate access to the alarm system’s monitoring center. These are ideal for people with mobility problems and elderly family members who are prone to falling and becoming injured.

Video surveillance

Security cameras are an important part of any security system, helping give you visibility on your doorstep, yard, and areas in your home you want to keep a closer eye on.

Different cameras you might want to consider for your home include:

  • Doorbell cameras alert you to people and packages on your doorstep, and let you answer your door via your smartphone whether you’re home or not.
  • Outdoor cameras help you keep an eye on your yard, swimming pool, shed, or other areas and send you a notification if someone comes into the line of vision. Some cameras also have more advanced features. The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro, for example, deters crime by identifying lurkers on the property, then playing a loud sound and illuminates an LED ring around the camera, letting lurkers know they’ve been spotted and are being recorded.
  • Indoor cameras give you a clear view of the inside of your home, whether you want to see an entire room or off-limits areas like gun cabinets or safes. Indoor cameras can double as nanny cams in the baby’s room, pet cams, or help you keep an eye on an elderly family member.

Many security systems use wi-fi enabled cameras, which don’t require internal storage like SD cards. For round the clock recording and video storage, you’ll need cloud storage from your service provider or a service like Playback DVR.

Business security

Businesses—whether they’re in your home or out—need security too, and not every business can afford (or needs) security officers or an onsite patrol service. You can protect your business with many of the same security devices used in your home, including cameras, access control, and security sensors.

Alarm monitoring

Security systems can be monitored professionally or by the homeowner. Professionally-monitored systems include monitoring by a monitoring center. If an alarm in your home goes off, the monitoring center will call the phone number you have on file to see if it’s a false alarm or real emergency. If you don’t answer, or if you’re not home to confirm, they’ll contact emergency services on your behalf.

Professionally monitored systems provide greater peace of mind, ensuring your home is protected around the clock whether you’re there or not.

Home automation any New Hampshirite can use

Smart home automation automates many of the systems around your home, making your home safer, more comfortable, and more convenient. With smart home automation, you can set your lights to turn on and off at certain times or your doors to lock automatically.

Smart homes also let you control your home remotely via a smartphone app, keeping you connected to your home wherever you go.

Some of the best smart home devices for your home include:

  • Smart thermostat. The smart thermostat automatically adjusts your home’s temperature to make sure your home remains at the temperature you like when you’re home. It also helps you conserve energy and save money while you’re away.
  • Smart locks. With smart locks, a unique code for each user replaces physical keys, making it safer alternative to hidden or spare keys. You can also lock and unlock your door right from your phone.
  • Garage door control. With garage door control, you’ll be notified if your garage door is open, then close it right from your smart phone.
  • Smart lighting lets you control your lights whether you’re home or away. You can also create rules to automatically turn lights on or off at specific times, like when you unlock your door or set your security system.

Controlling your smart home

One of the great things about a smart home is the ability to control it whether you’re at home or away. Your new smart home security system should include an intuitive app that lets you control all of your smart devices from one location.

You’ll also need a control panel for your home, like the Vivint Smart Hub. You can use the Smart Hub to watch camera footage, arm and disarm your system, and even contact emergency services with the touch of a button.

Nearly 70% of homes in the United States have some sort of smart device in their home. But because not all smart home devices work together, it’s important to make sure the security solutions you choose are compatible with your existing devices.
