Did you know that X10 home automation and home security products can be combined? That’s right — you don’t need to purchase a pre-packaged bundle; you can build your own! And if you do choose from X10’s money-saving bundles, you can always add more components to your original system to create an even more extensive system. Today, we’re going to walk through the components in our X10 Home Security Kit with Home Automation Bundle, simply because it includes so many of our most popular items.
Like all X10 Home Security bundles, this one includes a sampling of each of the five layers of protection. Easy to install without any previous experience, X10 Home Security kits allow you to wirelessly operate your Home Security system through your existing landline, WiFi connection, and smart phone. You won’t have hidden installation fees or monthly service fees; the price you see on our website is literally all it costs. And with the added Home Automation bundle, your Home Security can be even more effective. (More about that in another blog post.)
The first of five layers of protection is the Voice Dialer, represented by the SC1200 X10 SecuriLINK Security Console. When a motion detector or perimeter security sensor has been tripped, this important component will automatically call your phone number (and up to 5 added pre-programmed numbers) until someone answers the phone.
The second layer of protection is Motion-Detection. The Home Security Kit with Home Automation Bundle includes the MS18A X10 Smart Security Motion Detector.
The third level of X10 protection consists of the Perimeter Security Sensors. In this bundle, 5 units of the X10 DS12A Smart Door/Window Sensor are included; as always, you can add as many additional units as you see fit, in order to fully protect your home’s perimeter.
The fourth and fifth levels of protection provided through X10 Home Security are preventive in nature. Remarkably effective in making your home less appealing to would-be burglars, Timed Lighting and Security Signs and Decals are significant aspects of your Home Security system. For Timed Lighting, the X10 Home Security Kit with Home Automation Bundle includes 2 units of the KR32A Smart Security Keyfob Remote and 2 units of the LM465 Lamp Module. As far as Security Signs, the bundle also includes 5 units of the X10 Security Window Sticker and 1 Security Yard Sign.
Added elements that cross over into the Home Automation category include the MC10A White Plug-in Mini Controller and WS12A Decorator Dimmer Switch. While they offer conveniences, they can also improve your home’s security by allowing you to turn on or off devices or lights by pressing a button on the table-top controller, allowing you to flash lights whenever your Home Security system has detected an intrusion.
If you decide to add further Home Automation capabilities, you can always do so. Adding AM466 appliance module will allow you to remotely turn on a radio, TV, or any other appliance. And as always, setup is quick and easy: just set the code, plug in your module and appliance, and you’ll be up and running in only minutes!
