Remote Access

Say you’re on vacation or even at work. You can receive text notification alerts when something at home triggers your smart alarm system. Remote access changes the game of security systems because you’re able to view your live feed and view previously recorded footage. Traditional surveillance systems utilize on-site storage for the video files and aren’t easily accessible from the convenience of your smartphone or tablet.

A remote access app  allows you to arm and disarm your smart alarm and you can also make sure you’ve locked all the doors and shut the garage door with a glance at your smartphone. You can respond to occurrences from your smart device while you’re away from home. You can either monitor alerts yourself or select to work with a local monitoring service. Either way, you can choose how you want a situation handled whether at home or away.

Additional Features

Smart alarm systems let you easily control your home’s security with ease. Wireless keypads can be distributed throughout your home so deactivation alarm codes can be easily entered as you walk into the house and set off the alarm countdown.

Lighting control can also integrate into your smart alarm system. For example, if an intruder breaches your home, your alarm can prompt your lighting system to illuminate the entire home in an instant; this frightens intruders so they don’t stay around for much longer. You can also automate specific lights in your home to turn on or off throughout the day so it looks like you’re home when you aren’t.

A Life Saver

In addition to surveilling your home with live-feed footage, a smart alarm system can go beyond keeping your home safe and potentially save lives. With smart thermostats and climate control integrated with your system, if smoke from a fire is detected not only will alarms sound within your home, but you and local authorities would receive notifications and your HVAC system can automatically shut off to prevent smoke from spreading.

Smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can also increase convenience and safety. There’s no need to deal with the dreaded 2 a.m. low battery chirp because these smart devices send you a notification when it’s time to change the battery, which doesn’t often happen due to their almost decade-long battery life.

Having a smart alarm system with remote access as a feature will allow you to experience convenience and freedom that traditional alarm systems simply can’t offer.
