Security systems have been around for a long time. At their most basic levels, they provided some amount of peace of mind that something is monitoring your house when you’re away. Security was accomplished by sensors attached to windows and doors, and a control system that could be armed and disarmed. When armed, the system could notify a monitoring center about a door or window that has been opened (or broken) when it wasn’t expected. We are all likely familiar with these. Let’s say these systems were not very smart. After all, they could be fairly cryptic. Sometimes they might illuminate a light on a panel that corresponded to a door. If you had multiple outside doors in a large house, you would need a cheat sheet to know which one. Typically not something you have on you when the monitoring company calls you to say the number 6 door has been opened with the system armed.
