It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the different security systems available today. You may know exactly what you want out of a home security system but are unsure where to start. You may only have a vague idea of what you need but can’t tell one system apart from the other. Fortunately, Brinks Home Security ™ takes the guesswork out of home security by providing customizable, streamlined smart home security options, so you can choose the one that makes the most sense for you.

1) Smart Security Essential Package

The Essential Package is a great starter system for those who may be new to the world of smart home security. Equipped with a Qolsys IQ 2.0+ panel, a wireless motion sensor, two door sensors, and a yard sign + stickers, this package covers all your bases. Beyond the gadgets, the Essential plan provides you with 24/7/365 professional monitoring, cellular backup, tamper protection, and home automation. Plus, you can monitor your home via your mobile phone or smart device and make adjustments as needed, like locking the back door or turning on the porch light. The Essential Package’s wireless door and motion sensors are clearly labeled, making them a snap to install- just peel and stick! Finally, the IQ 2.0+ panel acts as your Smart Home hub and connects with any preexisting digital assistants (Google Nest, Siri, Alexa, etc.).

2) Smart Security Complete Package

Like the Essential Package, the Smart Security Complete package comes with all the basics. However, along with the IQ 2.0+ panel and the yard sign/stickers, the Complete Package boasts two wireless motion sensors and three wireless door sensors. Along with these small but powerful upgrades, the Complete Package also includes an indoor camera with night vision. These additions are perfect for individuals looking to monitor multiple rooms in their homes, or even keep an eye on little ones or pets. In addition to the benefits that come standard with this package, like hacker protection and data encryption, the video feed that accompanies the Complete Package is HD quality, which means you get a crystal clear stream which, in the event of an emergency, can help emergency services ID intruders.

3) Smart Security Ultimate Package

In addition to the IQ 2.0+ panel, two wireless motion sensors, three door sensors, and the yard sign/ stickers, this top-of-the-line package includes an outdoor camera and video doorbell as extra layers of protection. We’ll even send out an expert to professionally install your system free of charge. As with all security packages, you can monitor your home from anywhere, with the power to control smart locks, cameras, smart thermostats, and even the option to see and speak to visitors at the front door.

While each package has unique features and benefits, all of them can be updated and customized to suit the needs of you and your family. For example, no matter which system you go with, you always retain the option to purchase add-ons (like additional locks or flood sensors) that are completely compatible with whichever system you have. In fact, all our systems can act as a hub for up to 119 smart home devices, and as always, can be controlled via Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Apple TV and monitored via your smart device of choice.
