Some Peace Of Mind With Samsung Smart Things + ADT Home Safety Expansion Kit From Best Buy
The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
If you recall, we installed our Samsung ADT Home Security System back in December. I have been thrilled with the Samsung ADT Home Security System, and have enjoyed increased peace of mind since we installed it. There is a confidence in knowing for certain that your front door is locked after you leave, or when it is opening and closing.
The installation was fairly quick and relatively painless. Optional 24/7 professional monitoring helps ensure that peace of mind is in place once you leave the house. Of course, doors and windows aren’t the only places were danger lie.
We all know the dangers of fire. And yet, we don’t all do everything we can to ensure our own safety. Many of us, myself included, don’t always carefuly monitor the battery life of our smoke alarms, leaving us vulnerable should fire break out. According to the most recent statistics published on the National Fire Protections Association website, three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms (38%) or no working smoke alarms (21%). And dead batteries caused one-quarter (24%) of the smoke alarm failures. All of this is avoidable.
Carbon monoxide is also very dangerous, and even harder to combat because you don’t know it’s there. According to the CDC, each year more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO poisoning not linked to fires, more than 20,000 visit the emergency room, and more than 4,000 are hospitalized. Also avoidable.
Fortunately, the Samsung ADT Home Security System is making dealing with the threat of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning easier. In addition system having you covered with the door and window detectors, and the motion detector, there’s also a Home Safety Expansion Pack available. The Home Safety Expansion Pack is an add-on item to the Home Security System. The Expansion Pack contains an ADT Smoke Alarm, Carbon Monoxide Alarm and Water Leak Detector.
Are you wondering why you might need a Water Leak Detector? Many years ago the water heater in the ranch house I live in broke. My Prents saw the damage, which basically put the entire floor underwater, ruining hardwoods, cabinets, doors and more. If such a thing happened now, a heads up through the app could save thousands of dollars as well as property that has sentimental instead of monetary value.
Installing the three items that are included in the Home Safety Expansion Pack is fairly straightforward. Installation is as simple as scanning the QR code on each item and putting the item where you want it. Then you let the Smart Things app know which item you put where and you’re set. Everything is designed to be easy to set up, it’s all do it yourself with no professionals needed.
Just like the door and window detectors and the motion detector, the Smart Things app is connected to the hub powered by Samsung Smart Things. The hub is the central point for everything. The app will notify you if an alarm is going off, or if something seems to have been tampered with. You can even see how much of a charge is left in the batteries while you’re in the app.
I love knowing that I can feel safer both when I’m home and when I’m not, because I have the Samsung + ADT Home Securiy System and Home Safety Expansion Pack. It makes me feel good knowing I can expect an alert if something is happening at home, and knowing I’d have the ability to do something much sooner than if I didn’t know it was happening.
