How to Turn Your Security System into a Smart Home Hub

2020 02 24-digital-blog-header-2100-smart

Smart homes are all the rage, and it’s easier than you might think to get one. If you have a Brinks Home™ system, it can double as a smart home hub. By adding compatible smart devices, you can control your lights, thermostat, front door lock, and more, either remotely or by voice. You can also instruct your home to do some things automatically, like turn on the lights when you get home.

Your Brinks Home system can serve as a smart home hub regardless of which security system offering you choose. Brinks Home’s Smart Security system, for example, gives you a vast number of home automation options. That’s because you can add virtually any Z-Wave home automation device. You control the system via a peel-and-stick touchscreen hub, and it’s compatible with both Google Home and Alexa, so you can also talk to it from a smart speaker.

Z-Wave is a leading provider of smart home devices, with about 3,000 products on the market. Some popular devices are offered through the Brinks Home website, but you’re not limited to those; if it’s Z-Wave compatible, you can probably install it. For example, you can add a Z-Wave Smart Switch plug-in lamp dimmer, a Z-Wave In-Wall Dimmer or a smart garage door opener.

You can make your home smart in other ways, too. The Brinks Home FireFighter device monitors all the existing smoke alarms in your home and notifies the Brinks Home alarm response center if one goes off. The IQ Wireless Garage Door Tilt Sensor keeps tabs on whether the garage door is open or closed.

By adding home automation devices to a Brinks Home system, you can get the best of both worlds — a home that’s smart and secure.
