>Now that we’re in our new home and our Samsung SmartThings and ADT Home Security Starter System is set up and working we figured why not test out and add a few new features to help keep the home even safer.
The main places in our home which we were able to make more safe, secure and smart with the ADT Home Security Starter Kit Samsung Smartthings Hub are covered such as the doors and windows but also a little more piece of mind in the family room as well with the motion detector. However, these gems don’t protect the unknown issues you can have that can be costly and in some cases even deadly.
We’ve since added the Samsung SmartThings Home Safety Expansion Kit! The kit includes an ADT Smoke Alarm, an ADT Carbon Monoxide Alarm, and an ADT Water Leak Detector. All you need to get these working is an ADT Security Hub.
Why is the Samsung SmartThings Home Safety Expansion Kit Important?
Carbon Monoxide is called the “silent killer.” Having a Carbon Monoxide Alarm in your home is important as you will not be able to smell or even tell that there’s an issue until it’s too late. This alarm will help you stay up to date on your surroundings and give you a little peace of mind while you’re not home (and even when you are).
Smoke Alarm, did anyone else see the previews for the Super Bowl “This is Us?” I have a feeling that there’s going to be some serious discussions in many a house if it works out the way they have teased. We all have smoke detectors in our home, but why not streamline everything and have it connected to your ADT Security Hub and be able to see what’s going on when you’re not home but also allow you to stay up to date on all your smart home devices in one area.
Everything includes an app these days, how is the Samsung SmartThings app different?
We live in a tech age where you can say “there’s an app for that” on just about anything… It’s great to be so connected even when we’re out at school functions, family outings or even just paying the bills. While we would all like to live in a world with no crime, fires, disasters and eternal bliss we all know that just isn’t reality.
Our homes are our safe havens. Families spend numerous years saving to buy a home so they’re the family can be stable, so why not protect what you’ve worked so hard for? Why not be able to monitor your home when you’re away? Do you have children? Wouldn’t it be nice to hear the alarm or get a notification and let you know a door opened or a window opened? I mean we can’t watch our kids 24/7 but we can have small tech gadgets help! I’m not saying spy, I’m just saying be cautious. In this day in age, we all should be “in the know.”
Overall home security and safety is important and that’s why we’ve taken the steps to make sure we have it all in place. I love that everything is powered by Samsung SmartThings Hub, it’s customization and connects with the rest of your smart home devices for one central control point. Not to mention, it’s super easy to set up and do yourself.
