There are a number of common problems with home alarms that people experience and these are outlined within this article. Firstly and probably most common of all is on the control panel there are lights flashing that are not normally or are un recognised by the user. Common problems with home alarms can vary depending on what alarm system you are using and often the best advice will be refer to the operating guide that comes with the unit. More often than not though a flashing green light on the keypad or operating console could indicate that the unit has either lost its external power source or the battery power is low on the unit. If there is a flashing red light on the unit then this can indicate that the system has been in alarm and the unit could need to be reset. As indicated above always refer to the operating instruction guide before pressing any buttons that you are unfamiliar with on the unit.

We also carry keyless door locks and smart Wi Fi door locks. Even smoke detectors have gotten smarter, and a Nest Smoke Alarm is a great choice. A host of our smart products are compatible with the Apple home automation system Apple HomeKit. Pair them up and you’ll have an Apple smart home in no time. Plus with a Google Wi Fi router your smart appliances and devices will have access to a steady, reliable internet connection, keeping you in full control of your smart home from anywhere. I armed Canary while I remained home, so that I could test its detection capabilities, but the device would automatically disarm itself after a few minutes sometimes after just a few minutes, other times after more than 20 minutes.

It's important to note that in some municipalities you may have to file for a permit to have a security system installed in your home. If you live in a small apartment and want to keep tabs on things when you're not home, a security camera can get the job done for a lot less money than what you'll pay for a full security system. Nearly all standalone security cameras connect to your home's Wi Fi so you can see what's going on from your phone or tablet, and most have built in sensors that detect motion and sound and will send push and email notifications when those sensors are triggered. You can usually tweak the camera's motion sensitivity to prevent false alarms due to pet activity or passing cars if the camera is near a window, and you can create a schedule that turns the sensors on and off during certain hours of the day. A smart lock is typically part of a robust smart home security system, but you don't have to invest in a full blown system to use one. If you're using a home automation hub to control things like lighting and thermostats, you can add a Z Wave or Zigbee smart lock to the system without much effort. Alternately, if you don't have a home automation hub, look for a Wi Fi or Bluetooth lock that comes with its own mobile app. Smart locks use standard pre drilled holes and are fairly easy to install. Some models use your existing keyed cylinder and deadbolt hardware and attach to the inside of your door, while others require that you remove your existing interior and exterior escutcheons and replace the deadbolt and strike hardware. A Smart lock can be opened and closed using a mobile app and will send a notification when someone locks or unlocks a door, and most allow you to create permanent and temporary access schedules for family members and friends based on specific hours of the day and days of the week. Features to look for include geofencing, which uses your phone's location services to lock and unlock the door, voice activation using Siri HomeKit, Google Home, or Amazon Alexa voice commands, support for IFTTT, and integration with other smart home devices such as video doorbells, outdoor cameras, thermostats, smoke alarms, and connected lighting.
