compare security systems
People said ‘Hey, I want
this to automatically disarm my security system when I get close. ’ The question then becomes: How close?And is it really you with your phone?Or did someone pick it up at the park, find your address, drive to your house, and let themselves in?”Ring Alarm hits nearly all the right notes for a basic DIY home security system. I’ve already touched on a couple of its shortcomings—including an absence of support for smart speakers—but tighter integration with Ring’s own cameras would be another welcome development. When an alarm is tripped, the cameras should begin recording to perhaps capture a glimpse of what triggered it—potentially valuable forensic evidence you could provide to the police investigating a break
in. And if Ring Alarm could control your home’s smart lighting, it could turn on all the lights if the alarm is triggered after dark, which might convince an intruder to make a hasty retreat. Owning a home comes with a ton of responsibilities, and topping this list is ensuring that it is well protected.
