Embrace Smart Technology to Safeguard Your Home

Posted on Friday, August 4, 2023

Safety and security devices are at the top of every homeowner’s to-do list. You may not need them, but it’s nice to know they are there. If this is your first home, you may be overwhelmed by the many options available to you.

Fortunately, every Marvida resident also has access to a home security monitoring service and our builders offer smart home packages full of security features. Guess your to-do list just got shorter. Take a look at these common smart home devices:

Home Automation Systems

Home automation systems tie your devices together and allow you to control them via a centralized hub or smartphone. Marvida homes feature a Honeywell Tuxedo System touchpad that acts as both a home automation controller and interface. Use it to schedule lights to make it look like someone is at home and check who is at the door before you open it.

All-in-One Security Systems

Marvida homes are pre-wired for home security systems. These all-in-one packages usually include high-definition cameras, motion detectors and door/window sensors. You can monitor your home remotely or go with a service that offers professional monitoring, alerting the authorities in case of a break-in.

Video Doorbells

Equipped with a built-in camera and two-way audio, video doorbells allow you to see and usually speak with anyone at your front door — whether you are home or not. That way, you know who is at the door and can keep an eye on deliveries.

Smart Locks

Who needs a key when you have a smart lock? These devices use Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or a mobile app to control access to your home. You can lock or unlock your doors remotely, assign temporary access codes to guests or service providers and receive notifications whenever someone enters or exits your home.

Wi-fi Cameras

Wi-fi cameras are good for monitoring the interior and exterior of your home. Most are equipped with night vision so you can check on your front or backyard even in low-light conditions.

Water Leak Sensors

Sometimes pipe spring a leak. Unfortunately, you might not notice it until your floor has an inch or two of water on it. Prevent water damage by installing sensors near sinks and appliances. When a leak is detected, these sensors send immediate alerts to your smartphone, giving you the opportunity to act swiftly.

Smart Smoke Detectors

Take safety to the next level with smart versions of traditional smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. These devices send real-time alerts to your smartphone in case of smoke or carbon monoxide detection, even when you’re not home. Some models can even differentiate between types of smoke, reducing false alarms.
