Home Security: Pick the Home Security System Right for You

January 27th, 2020

Let BrightSuite bring you peace of mind

Picking the right home security system can be confusing. Which brand is better? Should I use a professional installer? Are all home security apps the same? What’s the best security company? There’s a lot to discover.

To save you time, and to help you get the most protection, ease of use, and everyday value, we’ve narrowed things down to seven essential things to know.

1: Is it professionally monitored?

Professional monitoring is the gold standard of home security. If there’s a break-in or fire at home, a professionally monitored security system sends an emergency signal to a 24/7 monitoring station, where a trained security professional is on hand to alert your local law enforcement or fire department.

All BrightSuite-powered security systems are professionally monitored, because there is no effective substitute for this service. You can’t see every smartphone alert that a security system sends you, and if you’re home in an emergency, your priority is to get everyone to safety.

2: Will it withstand a burglar’s toolkit?

Not all security products are engineered equally. To ensure safety in a variety of scenarios, make sure a security system has a dedicated cellular connection. This type of signaling technology doesn’t piggyback on your home’s broadband or phone line, so it can’t be physically cut by an intruder. All BrightSuite-powered security panels have a dedicated cellular connection with battery backup for power outages.

3: What else will this system protect you from?

BrightSuite’s proactive safeguards can detect and respond to dangers like fire, carbon monoxide, and water leaks. They can also save you time and money, tackling problems like lost keys and package deliveries.

With the ability to respond to more dangers and challenges, even when disarmed, a BrightSuite-powered system gives you more value in the long run.

4: What happens if something stops working?  

The most important thing about a security system is that it has to work when you need it. What happens when a device or component of the system needs professional attention?

With BrightSuite, help is always at hand. With advanced training, and online diagnostic tools, we can quickly troubleshoot your system. Many issues can be fixed remotely; other fixes can be carried out by a visiting technician.

5: Does it include smart home devices?

BrightSuite has a wide range of essential smart devices, and BrightSuite is compatible with many more. You can have smart locks, a smart thermostat, connected video cameras, smart lights, a video doorbell, connected garage door openers and more.
