5 Benefits of a Smart Security App
Control of Your Home's Security in the Palm of Your Hand
Holiday season hopefully means a long vacation with the family. What can you do to get peace of mind that everything's going well back home while you lay out on a beach in the Bahamas? The answer is a mobile app that gives you access to your home security system from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. In this blog we highlight some of the top benefits of having a home security app:
Watch Surveillance from Anywhere
One of the things our clients love about their security app is the ability to look in on their home at any time. From a smartphone or tablet, you can pull up live surveillance footage. During the holidays, it's an excellent way to make sure your home is just as you left it. During the rest of the year, you can use it to check in on your pets or see what the kids are up to if they make it home before you.
Make Adjustments to Your Home Remotely
What if, as you're looking through your surveillance, you notice something is off? A light was left on in the kids' room, or the back door wasn't locked. From the same app you used to check your surveillance, you can adjust lighting, lock the doors, and set the alarm. There’s no need to watch all day to stay connected either; you can receive a notification if lights were left on or doors unlocked when you left the house.
Make it Easy to Let People In
There's also no need to hide a key under the mat so your pup sitter can get into the house while you're away. Get a notification when they're at the front door, so you can use your phone to let them in. Look at your surveillance first to make sure it’s them then use your app to disarm the security system and unlock the front door.
Receive Notifications When Sensors Go Off Certain areas of your home may be especially off limits. You can receive notifications on your phone when someone sets off motion sensors near your property’s perimeter, your gun safe, or liquor cabinet. You can then use your app to look in on live surveillance footage to see who it was that set off the alarm. Depending on where the sensor is located, authorities can also be notified immediately of suspicious activity.
Don’t worry about leaving your home alone during long stretches of time, with a smart security app you stay connected to what’s happening there at all times. Want to take advantage of this technology in your Minnesota home? Contact US
