Reducing false alarms is a major goal for security device manufacturers


New White Paper Developed in Partnership with Essence Addresses Security System Innovations Enabled by Smart Home Connectivity

DALLAS, July 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A New Parks Associates white paper reports that home security consumers are looking for solutions to reduce false alarms as well as improve responses to triggering events such as home burglaries, while new solutions are emerging for device manufacturers to address these needs. The company’s consumer research shows that 62% of security system owners report that their system has triggered at least one false alarm in the past 12 months. The recently published white paper, Zero Response Time – Safety System Interventiondeveloped in partnership with Essence, explains how enhanced monitoring solutions and active response techniques can improve the accuracy of alerts and move security systems beyond detection to improve the immediacy and effectiveness of their response .

“Adoption of security systems has steadily increased in recent years, reaching 36% of US Internet homes,” said Chris White, Principal Analyst, Parks Associates. “However, false alarms are a persistent problem, which can slow down response and exacerbate existing gaps and traditional limitations in home security coverage. Solutions that improve detection and enable immediate response can help deter intruders , reduce property loss and increase the value of the system overall.”

Advances in security system technology have increased and adoption has increased, especially among young adults and affluent families. New sensors can detect external movement and internal home occupancy. New security solutions, enabled by smart home connectivity and remote control, can enable faster automated notifications, more immediate and direct response, and a more efficient system.

“New solutions include smart security cameras with two-way talk, neighborhood security apps that provide joint surveillance, and personal security apps that give users on-demand access to certified bodyguards and security professionals. Enterprises will continue to integrate new technologies to overcome the limitations of the previous generation of security systems,” said White.
