Smartphones and Tablets Provide Easy Access and Control for Home Security Systems

As technology advances, security systems for homes become more intuitive, easier to use, more convenient, and provide more functions and control. It’s an unfortunate circumstance, but crime doesn’t take a break, and the threat must be considered every day of the year. Technological advances allow homeowners to remotely take advantage of several conveniences, safety measures and money-savers through their smartphones and tablets wherever an internet connection is available.
Here’s how it works:
With All-Connect, All-Guard Alarm System’s home automation system, you can have access to your security system, thermostat, lighting, door locks, and other household appliances—all from the palm of your hand. This technology can send you text alerts, videos, e-mails of notifications about your home. What does that mean for you?
If you leave home and wonder if you’ve forgotten to set the alarm, you no longer have to turn around and go back to check. You can just pull it up on your device (whether it’s a smartphone or tablet) and check your windows, door locks, and then set your alarm if you haven’t already.
All-Connect also alleviates the hassle of distributing keys to contractors working on home improvement projects. If you’ve installed cameras in your home, you can keep an eye on the progress of work and make sure it’s proceeding as planned. A homeowner can schedule a specific time that a door opens for workers, and that same door can be remotely locked again when the workers are finished completing tasks for the day. Without secure access and proper supervision, homes undergoing remodeling are often notable targets for criminals.
For parents who are concerned about the safety of their children, it’s possible to monitor them from a remote location. Security systems for home safety will allow parents to receive notification via e-mail or text that includes a short video of their children arriving home from school safely. Separate alarm codes are an added feature that can be assigned to different children. This makes it easy to identify each child when they enable or disable an alarm. These features provide extra safety and peace of mind for parents who have children at home without supervision.
All-Connect can be used to control lighting and temperature, which can save you money if you’ve forgotten to turn off the lights or adjust the temperature before you’ve left the home for an extended period of time. Home security companies have lots of suggestions for when you’re on vacation, but the number one course of action is to use All-Connect to make sure your home looks lived in. Change the lights in different rooms to create the façade that someone is in the home.
If you’ve got pets, make sure they’re comfortable and safe with video surveillance and temperature control. This precaution is especially applicable for temperature-sensitive pets such as reptiles.
All-Guard Alarm Systems is a home security company that understands how technology and security interact. Try our All-Connect system to take advantage of these conveniences, added safety measures and money-saving features.
