For example, when you are at the office and a stranger approaches your main entry, your video doorbell will discern the motion. The device will automatically send an alert to your cell phone with video footage of your visitor. You can then utilize the integrated smartphone app and speak with the person at your door by using the two-way talk capability, or have connected smart lighting illuminate, so it seems like you’re in the house. If a break-in does occur, your system will instantly warn your 24-7 monitoring agents, and they'll quickly summon law enforcement.
A security system can protect you from fire, floods, and carbon monoxide
Many different types of dangerous situations may happen at your house. Flooding, fire, and CO leaks usually impact your home unnoticed and happen fast. Connecting safety equipment to your alarm system gives your smoke, flood, and CO sensors the same functionality as your other monitored devices.
When disaster hits, your alarm’s siren will ring, alerting every person in the home to leave. You may even have an alert sent to your smartphone, which is especially beneficial if you're away at work. Your monitoring representatives will also be notified, so they can get emergency services to your door while you move to a safe location.
