For instance, when you are at work and someone approaches your door, your video doorbell will sense the activity. The device will immediately send an alert to your smartphone with video proof of your visitor. You can then utilize the integrated smartphone app and communicate with your guest via the two-way talk functionality, or have the front hall light illuminate, so it seems like you’re in the house. If a break-in does take place, your home’s defense will immediately alert your 24-7 monitoring agents, and they'll quickly summon law enforcement.
A security system defends against fires, flooding, and CO leaks
Many different types of dangerous situations could happen at your residence. Flooding, fire, and CO leaks usually come unexpectedly and escalate quickly. Linking detectors to your security system gives your fire alarms and other sensors the same functionality as your other monitored devices.
When a crisis occurs, your alarm’s siren will ring, prompting everyone in the residence to leave. You could even have an alert sent to your phone, which is particularly beneficial when you're at the office. Your monitoring specialists will also be informed, so they can contact emergency services while you find safety.
