For example, when you are running errands or working and someone comes on your main entry, your video doorbell will sense the motion. It will instantly send an update to your smartphone with video proof of your visitor. You may then access the integrated smartphone app and converse with your guest by using the two-way talk functionality, or have the front hall light illuminate, so it looks like you're home. In the event an intrusion does take place, your home’s protection will automatically notify your around-the-clock monitoring team, and they'll quickly call the police.
A security system can protect you from fire, floods, and carbon monoxide
Many different types of urgent events could take place at your home. CO leaks, fires, and flooding generally impact your home unnoticed and escalate quickly. Linking different safety sensors to your alarm system provides your fire alarms and other sensors the same functionality as your monitored motion detectors.
If disaster hits, your alarm’s siren will go off, alerting all occupants of the residence to leave. You could also have an alert sent to your phone, which is extremely beneficial when you're at the office. Your monitoring agents will also be advised, so they can reach out to first responders while you move to a safe location.
