What is home security vs. a smart home?

Home security refers to a residential alarm system that is monitored 24/7 by our protective signal operators that pro-actively dispatches help when an alarm is triggered. A smart home system connects your home to a handheld device such as a smartphone and allows you to control various things in your house: door, thermostat, lights, etc.  Home Security and Smart Home are often combined to give you convenience and security.
