For example, when you are running errands or working and a stranger comes on your front porch, your doorbell camera will detect the activity. This security component will immediately dispatch a warning to your phone with video proof of your guest. You may then access your phone's security app and converse with the person at your door through the 2-way audio feature, or have connected smart lighting turn on, so it appears like you’re in the house. In the event a break-in does occur, your home’s defense will automatically alert your around-the-clock monitoring agents, and they'll rapidly summon law enforcement.
A security system defends against fires, flooding, and CO leaks
A wide range of dangerous situations could take place at your house. Fire, flood, and carbon monoxide usually impact your home unnoticed and escalate quickly. Linking safety equipment to your alarm system allows your smoke, flood, and CO sensors the same level of integration as your other monitored devices.
When disaster hits, your alarm’s siren will sound, signaling all occupants of the residence to exit the premises. You may even have a warning dispatched to your phone, which is especially beneficial if you're not home. Your monitoring representatives will also be advised, so they can reach out to first responders while you move to a safe location.
