Home security systems can vary widely from low to high tech and from simple to complex designs. So what, exactly, does an X10 Home Security System include? Let’s take a look.
What’s Not Included in an X10 Home Security System
Before we get into what X10 home security systems do include, let’s get something straight: there are some things which they don’t include. But we’re pretty sure that you won’t miss these things a single bit. For one thing, they don’t include hefty monthly fees. Yes, you read that correctly. All you have to pay for is the initial cost for equipment — and your regular electric and internet bill, of course! Seriously, that’s it. No hidden costs or strings attached — maybe not even many cords, depending on which products you choose!
Secondly, X10 home security systems don’t require the need for professional installation. Not only will you avoid that extra expense, but if you’re anything like us, you’ll also appreciate not having to schedule in one more service call. (Not to mention that you’ll get the bragging rights of telling your friends about your new home security system, which you happen to mention that you installed all by your big self! Don’t worry: we won’t tell them how incredibly intuitive we made the process for you! It’ll be our secret — at least for now!)
What’s Included in an X10 Home Security System
Five layers of security are included in any X10 Home Security System. (By the way, we use the term “system” quite loosely: you can pretty much combine any of our products for a custom-built home security system. We do sell combinations of products in cost-saving packages, though.) Starting with starter kits like this one, each X10 home security package comes with at least one item for each of these 5 layers:
1. Voice Dialer
Whenever your X10 home security system is triggered (see layer #2 & #3 below), the voice dialer will automatically call the top phone number you have programmed into the unit. If you don’t answer, it will automatically call up to 5 additional numbers until someone does pick up.
2. Motion Detection
You can position your X10 Motion Detectors in any high-traffic areas or places of particular concern, such as near your gun safe or other valuables.
3. Perimeter Security Sensors
4. Timed Lighting
This important layer creates the appearance that someone is home, even if your home is actually empty, reducing the chances of an intruder’s targeting your home.
5. Security Signs and Decals
As simple as these items may be, this layer actually ends up being quite effective in deterring would-be intruders from selecting your home.
When you add the fact that X10 Home Security Systems coordinate seamlessly with X10 Home Automation products, you have a winning combination on your hands!
