As a homeowner, keeping your family and property safe and secure is always a priority. With modern technology, it’s possible to have it literally at your fingertips. Your smart phone or tablet can be used to access your home security system at your convenience.
See And Speak To Visitors At Your Door
The Ring Video Doorbell allows users to see and speak to a visitor who approaches their front door by with either a cell phone or a tablet. A homeowner can use this device from anywhere in the home, the back yard or even offsite. The Doorbell works on a battery, and can be installed in minutes.
A camera is built into the doorbell, allowing you to get a clear picture of the person ringing the doorbell. The Ring Video Doorbell also features motion detection and cloud storage. Once installed, this device allows you to act as if your home is occupied, even when you are at work, running errands or on vacation. You can also use it to screen visitors if you would prefer not to open the door if you were not expecting anyone.
Arm And Disarm Home Security
Several home security companies now have their own apps that can be installed to allow homeowners to check the status of their security system remotely. Users can arm or disarm the system with a touch of a button. This feature is very convenient on days when you may have left the house without remembering to arm your system or if you need to let someone into your home during the day.
Set Up Alerts
Home security apps can also be set up to let you know if a sensor in your home has been set off. You can decide to install sensors to alert you to smoke, carbon monoxide, a flood or freezing pipes during cold months. Once a sensor has been triggered, it will send an alert to your smart phone to let you know exactly what is going on in your home.
Monitor Your Home
With a security app, you can keep track of who is entering your home, and when it takes place. If you have school-aged children who are coming home by themselves, you can make sure they are at home by a set time.
This technology can also be used to monitor rooms that are off limits, such as where you have your gun case stored. You can set up the system to send you an alert if someone enters the room.
While it’s impossible to be at home all the time, new technology makes it possible to have home security at your fingertips to help keep your family and property safe. Call ABC Locksmith today for a consultation about how we can help you update your home security system.
