How to Give Homeowners the Smart Home Security They Desire

Modern Homebuyers Are Willing to Pay More for Smart Security

The contemporary home buyer wants streamlined and easily accessible technology through a single system. In fact, many homeowners are willing to pay more for a home with smart technology included, including smart home security. People want to be able to receive alerts right to their phones where they can check surveillance cameras, door locks, and sensors. The best time to build a reliable surveillance system is during the build or renovation stage. If you’re an architect or builder, have you discussed smart security with your clients?

While wireless plug-and-play devices have gained popularity in recent years, a wired smart home security system is still the most reliable approach. We’ll share why that is and how you can add security to your projects in Fenwick Island, DE, below.

What Makes Wired Security the Safest

If your clients are interested in adding security to their building, let them know this: while a wired system requires a longer installation, it is the best solution. Wired systems are more reliable, supports large systems, avoids interference and hacking, and lasts long-term. By contrast, a wireless security setup relies on Wi-Fi and is significantly limited in size. If you lose Wi-Fi signals, cameras, alarms, and sensors are useless. It’s much safer to wire the system by a professional, so devices don’t experience technical difficulties.

Low Voltage Wiring 

With a long list of security devices to integrate, you’ll need to consider things like conduit placement and low voltage wiring. Low voltage wiring is electric wiring that does not carry the same current as power outlets and won’t pose the same electrocution threats that standard wire does. In security systems, low-volt cables run to sensors at windows, doors, and walkways to connect to alarms and cameras. Technology choices may affect room designs and wiring decisions within walls. An integrator like Electronic Interiors can help you find where low voltage wiring will be needed and where devices should go, so you won’t have to make unexpected compromises later.

How An Integrator Partnership Can Help

Smart home security is not exactly part of an architect or builder’s scope of work. Projects can get much more complicated once automation is involved. A technology integrator can assist early in the process by giving you a more accurate bidding and subcontractor options, like electricians and security contractors (at Electronic Interiors, we also install security). Starting with a smooth-sailing process will set your project up for success, saving your time. If low voltage wiring and smart systems aren’t your areas of expertise, that’s where we can help.

As School Begins, Protect Your Home with Smart Security

Automated security keeps your Rehoboth Beach, DE, home secure

The start of a new school year can provoke a wide range of emotions. For parents, there’s a sense of relief and a return to routine now that the children aren’t at home all day. For children, a new school year can be exciting or stressful, depending on their feelings and situation. One emotion you shouldn’t be feeling at the school year, however, is anxiety about your home’s security. And yet, a suburban house that’s empty most of the day or an unused vacation home presents a tempting target to burglars.

How do you protect your primary residence or vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, DE? It’s simple: You install a smart home security system from Sound FX. In this blog, we’ll go through some back-to-school safety tips and show you how automation can keep your home and your loved ones safe.

Hiding a key somewhere outside for emergencies sounds like a good idea, but it’s a security risk not worth taking. If visitors can find it, it’s likely anyone looking to break into your home can also find it. If you insist on using an analog key, give one to a neighbor or your guests before leaving home.

For stronger security, you can install digital smart locks and other automated security systems. Once the locks are installed, you can give any visitors temporary access codes that only they can use. You’ll also be notified whenever someone has used the code. A video doorbell and remote intercom system provide a 24/7 feed of whatever’s outside your door. If someone wants to get inside, you can see who it is, speak with them and then let them inside if you deem it prudent.


While doors and first-floor windows are the most common ways an intruder might try to enter your home, they’re not the only ways inside. Determined intruders may try to break into your garage by spoofing the signal from your garage door opener or something similar. They can also use a ladder to reach second-floor windows.

Smart home security monitors your entire home for complete protection. A network of automated sensors and locks gives you total protection throughout the day. Additionally, you can get real-time updates, and your system can notify you if an intrusion is detected.


It’s important to be able to reach anyone in your home during an emergency. A damaged phone line or poor cell reception can make communication difficult right when you need it most. One way to keep an eye on your home and communicate with kids when they’re home alone is with an intercom system.

Home intercoms are useful not only when you’re at home – no need to yell to get let everyone know dinner’s ready – but also when you’re away. You can call the intercom system from your phone provided the home as has an internet connection. Anyone at home can also call you from the intercom system.
