Automated systems can bring real peace of mind through a series of integrated measures.
According to the British Crime Survey in 2014 the total number of domestic burglaries in England and Wales was around 50,000. Little wonder then that introducing security measures as a precaution is an increasing priority.
There is no doubt that basic measures such as leaving a light on a timeswitch will help and certainly introducing external security lighting tripped by movement does help dissuade intruders and can help to attract the attention of neighbours and passers by.

When planning the security of the home, prevention of a break-in is better than reacting to the break-in, and by integrating the alarm with the home automation much can be done to deter would-be intruders.
