The Smartest Home Security

A security system from Smith Thompson powered by Alarm.com comes with a number of safeguards designed to provide the very best in-home protection. These include a dedicated cellular connection that can’t be cut by thieves who want to break into your home, an Unexpected Activity alert that gives you an early warning of danger and “Crash and Smash” protection.

A common tactic employed by burglars is to quickly locate and smash the security system’s control panel during the countdown period before it can sound an alarm. But, with an Alarm.com-powered home security solution from Smith Thompson, should the control panel go offline during the countdown, the “Crash and Smash” component immediately sets off an alarm. That provides you with an extra layer of home protection.

One Smart App for Everything

Many home security systems available today are incredibly complex, with each device in your home controlled by a separate app. Not so with the Smith Thompson Home Security system powered by Alarm.com. One app controls everything in your home. With just a few taps and swipes, you can arm your security panel, turn on the lights, let a visitor in, view a video feed or activate several smart devices at once. It’s really that simple — no engineering degree required!

Automatic Updates

As today’s technology continues to develop at warp speed, what’s cutting-edge today may be virtually obsolete tomorrow. But that’s no cause for concern with a Smith Thompson security system. Our Alarm.com-powered system stays current with digitally-delivered upgrades that maximize the life of your system (and your investment), ensuring that you’ll always be able to benefit from the latest and smartest home security technology.

Crime Is Always with Us

We don’t like scare tactics, but we believe in being realistic. Rest assured there are always thieves lurking, looking for their next victim. For example, according to recent statistics, property crime in Dallas is 39 percent higher than the national average, while in Houston the rate is 76 percent higher than the rest of the country.

For many of us, our home is our most important asset. So why take a chance with that investment? Instead, enjoy the best home security in Texas.
