Smart alarm system

Analysts predict that in the coming years more and more people will install their particular smart alarm systems and monitor their homes without professional assistance. The market already offers numerous systems requiring no special knowledge and skills to set up or operate. The savings on installation and not having for connecting to a centralized security desk is considerable, and therefore such systems have been in demand. However, if you should be thinking of investing in a Smart Alarm System Company, it's worth remembering a few of the inconveniences you will inevitably face.

First, the alarm may be triggered at any moment, whatever the time of day. Just imagine, you're staying the nighttime at your friend's house or are on vacation by the sea, and you suddenly get an email from the security system. What can you do? Study the camera footage there and then in the center of the nighttime to see if the alarm made a mistake? Disregard the message? Postpone it until morning? What if your property is real burgled?

Second, potential communication issues always loom. Imagine if your phone's battery decides to die at the incorrect moment, or you're out of coverage in the center of nowhere. And only at that very moment, thieves break into your home. The security system tries to warn you, but you are unavailable, and the message doesn't get through. Sure, it will sound far-fetched, but it's hardly impossible.

Third, if you take full responsibility for your home protection, then nobody but you'll be there to keep an eye on the security of the system itself. And any technology, even security-related technology, is prone to vulnerabilities that may be exploited by criminals.

As an example, in 2022, researcher Ilia Schneidman discovered bugs in the Smart Alarm System Company-type system Smart Alarm that allowed an intruder to seize control of any alarm system and turn it on and off at will. And recently, Kaspersky experts hacked a Fibaro smart home, managing not just to disable the security system and surveillance cameras but to remotely open the leading door, that has been fitted with an intelligent lock.
