Have you had your security system for a while? Are you wondering if it’s providing adequate protection? Here are five signs your home security system may be outdated and needing an upgrade.
Lack of smart home integration
If your security system doesn't have the capability to integrate with smart home devices and technologies, it may be outdated. Modern security systems often offer features such as smartphone control, remote monitoring and integration with voice assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant. Limited or no remote access
If your security system doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app that allows you to monitor and control your system remotely, it may be outdated. Mobile apps provide convenience and flexibility, enabling you to arm/disarm the system, receive alerts and view surveillance footage from anywhere in the world. Guardian Security Solutions is proud to be a supplier of the Honeywell Total Connect system that provides mobile control, web access, video services and real-time alerts.
No video surveillance or low-quality cameras
If your security system doesn't include video surveillance or has outdated cameras with grainy, low-resolution footage, it may be time for an upgrade. High-definition cameras with features like night vision, motion detection and cloud storage have become standard in modern security systems. Outdated equipment
If the manufacturer of your security equipment hasn’t come out with a new operating system or security updates, it's a clear sign that an upgrade is needed. Outdated equipment is less reliable, less secure and more susceptible to hacking or system failures. Lack of professional monitoring options
Older security systems might not provide professional monitoring services or may have limited options. Professional monitoring ensures that emergency responders are alerted in case of a security breach or an alarm event, providing an extra layer of protection.
Fortunately, Guardian Security Solutions offers comprehensive video monitoring services. Our station is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) listed. This means the station meets or exceeds the highest industry standards so we can provide constant uninterrupted monitoring for you.
