Nothing is more important than keeping your family safe. You want your loved ones as secure as your home. At Hive, a premier home automation company in Tampa, we want our clients secure in the knowledge that their home’s safety is handled by seasoned professionals.
In this article we cover:
A security alarm is a system that alerts homeowners of potential danger in their homes. Used to detect unauthorized entry, an alarm system emits a signal (such as a siren or direct message) to alert the homeowner and emergency services.
Home security consists of different components including an alarm key, motion detectors, smokes, glass breaks, carbon monoxides, and window and door sensors. Note: An alarm system does not include security cameras. For more information on security cameras and systems, check out our previous security blogs.
Your system can be as simple or complex as you want. Hive offers systems that connect to your smart device for easy viewing. Monitoring services are also available so no matter where you are, someone is keeping an eye on your home.
Alarms can be hardwired into the home or placed on a wireless network. No need for pre-wiring to protect your space. Often, a home security system is made up of multiple sensors installed throughout the home. As a part of Hive’s top-of-the-line system, this includes:
All these parts come together to optimize your home with our easy-to-use technology.
When it comes to any type of installation or repair, tradesmen are expected to enter the home. It can cause anxiety over mess and time for many. But rest assured, Hive's smart home technicians are professional, tidy, and experts in their fields.
One great thing about home security is it can be as simple or complex as you’d like. With a vast selection of security features available, Hive tailors your installation to your personal needs. An alarm system installation can take anywhere from a few hours to several days.
The timeframe is dependent on factors including home size, system complexity, and the homeowner’s schedule. Installers also perform a demo so you understand how to make the most of your new automated system.
Before the tech’s arrival, you will receive a readiness checklist. This list will help ensure the technician can get right to work on arrival. Steps include; checking for stable internet, moving/covering furniture, and removing old equipment. We broke down our steps in a previous blog you can check out here.
Our technicians always introduce themselves before beginning any work. Then, our technician will ask you to go over your scope of work with them. Once you and the technician are on the same page, they will start working on your installation.
