To help consumers recognize the growing freedom
interactive security systems provide through remote management of security,
day-to-day activities, home energy and home automation, Alarm.com
offers three ways consumers can free themselves from the limits of
old-fashioned, unpredictable security systems.
With interactive security solutions, it’s easy to get moving and control home
security systems remotely, even far away from a security control panel.
With free security mobile apps for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry
devices, users can control their security system while at work, traveling or
simply out and about.
Remotely arm or disarm the security system from your
mobile phone, or view a complete event history of activity beyond alarm such as
doors and windows opening or closing. Using a smartphone to manage an
interactive home security system is like having a remote control for the system
right in your pocket.
There are many limits to outdated security systems
including a lack of control. Innovative home automation and energy
management solutions integrated with a home security system let users
adjust lights and thermostats remotely with free apps, too.
If the weather warms up outside, it’s simple to set the
thermostat to cool down from afar. Or if a meeting is running long at night,
it’s quick and easy to turn on the lights at home to make it look like someone
is there. Also, use security mobile apps or a laptop to control the view
of home security cameras to look in on activity while away.
Many traditional alarm systems are tied to unreliable phone lines that can
easily be cut by intruders or rely on an Internet connection that can go down
if there’s a storm or power outage. Strongly consider using security systems
that work on wireless GSM/GPRS technology to get protection and a
secure connection that can be counted on.
An added benefit of wireless technology and remote
security system control is the ability to receive real-time alerts via email or
text message about activity at home such as a safe or sensitive drawer being
opened or motion activity detected in important areas such as bedrooms or an
Mobility, control and connection are of utmost importance
when choosing an interactive home alarm system. By transitioning from
traditional, keypad-only security systems to more innovative security
technologies, homeowners can experience greater freedom to monitor, interact
with and secure their property from afar this summer and beyond.
