For example, in the event you are at work and a stranger comes on your front porch, your video doorbell will detect the activity. This security component will immediately send an alert to your smartphone with video footage of your guest. Use the security app on your phone and communicate with the person at your door through the 2-way audio capability, or have connected smart lighting illuminate, so it looks like your house is occupied. If a break-in actually happens, your system will immediately alert your around-the-clock monitoring team, and they'll quickly summon law enforcement.
A security system can protect you from fires, flooding, and CO leaks
Many different types of emergencies could take place at your residence. Fire, flood, and carbon monoxide typically arrive without warning and happen fast. Pairing safety equipment to your home security system allows your fire alarms and other sensors the same benefits as your home intrusion devices.
When disaster hits, your high-decibel siren will go off, signaling everyone in the home to get out. You could even have an alert sent to your smartphone, which is especially advantageous if you're at the office. Your monitoring specialists will also be informed, so they can get emergency services to your door while you find safety.
