Our previous articles explained how the X10 SecuriLink’s alarm system and five sensors can help to keep your home secure (see Parts 1, 2 & 3). In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the other features which this impressive home security system has to offer you.
Detect Indoor Motion in Two Different Locations
If a home invader does decide to enter your home, their presence can be picked up on X10’s powerful indoor motion detectors. The kit comes with two motion detectors so you can set them up in two different high traffic zones in your house. If there’s motion within a 40-foot range of one of these sensitive detectors, then your system will begin emitting its ear-piercing alarm. You can set it up in hallways, stairwells, rooms with multiple windows, or anywhere you choose. You can choose to turn the motion detectors off any time you wish. That way if you’re having a group of friends or family over to your home, you won’t have to worry about anyone triggering the alarm.
Throw Would-Be Intruders Off Track With Lighting Timers
As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Rather than wait passively for a break-in to occur, homeowners with the X10 SecuriLink system in place can count on several features to help prevent a home invasion from ever taking place in the first place. A poorly lit house is far more likely to be chosen by a nighttime intruder than a well-lit home. The built-in lighting timer that comes with the X10 SecuriLink system can make your home look occupied even when it’s not.
Use Any Touchtone Phone to Arm and Disarm Your SecuriLink System
If you use any touchtone phone anywhere in the world, you can reach your home with the SecuriLink system. All you need is a four-digit code that you can use to turn your system on or off using the phone’s numerical touchtone buttons. That means if you realize halfway to work that you didn’t turn on your security system before leaving home, you can turn it on quickly and easily without having to drive back home. If a repairman is stopping by to look at something and you don’t want the alarm to go off, just turn it off using your phone. It couldn’t be any easier!
Decals and Signs are a Major Crime Deterrent
If a burglar enters your neighborhood and notices that you have X10’s eye-catching weatherproof decals and signs posted on and around your home, they’re probably going to target another property instead of yours. The SecuriLink system comes with a five-pack of decals you can place strategically in windows and on doors.
Choosing the X10 SecuriLink Home Security system could be one of the smartest decisions you’ll ever make when it comes to protecting your home and family. It would also be ideal for use in your office. In our final article, we’ll explore the importance of the 32 zones of protection offered by the X10 SecuriLink System.
