Combine Smart Home Automation with Home Surveillance
Deter Potential Thieves by Tricking Them into Thinking You’re Home While You’re Away
Automating your home surveillance system seems like a no-brainer when you’ve already automated other features of your home – lighting control, climate control, motorized shades, and more. Your home surveillance system can actually incorporate your favorite features with your security cameras, too. Tie it all together with the power of Control4 smart home automation, and you’ll have peace of mind whenever you’re away from your Plano, TX, home for a long weekend getaway or vacation.
Keep reading to learn about how Control4’s Mockupancy feature can become a valuable piece to your home surveillance system while you’re away from home.
The Mockupancy abilities of your Control4 system are initiated with a driver installed by a Control4 professional like Platinum MediaWorks. The system can learn your day-to-day routines regarding lighting, motorized blinds, and audio/video preferences while you’re at home.
Once you leave your Plano-area home for an extended period of time, such as during the upcoming holiday season, your Control4 system will supplement your camera and alarm systems by adding increased security to your home. Slightly randomized iterations of your routines will occur, so to an outside observer, it will look like you’re at home with lights on at regular times and TVs or music playing throughout the day.
Set It & Forget It
Platinum MediaWorks can program the drivers necessary for your Control4 system to record your routines and then run the Mockupancy modes while you’re away. By setting an icon on your home screen, you’ll be able to easily tap your way into increased safety from your smart device.
Don’t forget, you can also monitor the rest of your home surveillance system remotely using your smart device, as well. Platinum MediaWorks is always happy to teach new customers the full scope of possibilities when we install a Control4 home automation system.
