Have you ever spent your commute wondering if you remembered to lock the door as you left? Never worry about that again with a smart home security installation. After you arrive at the office, open up your smart security app on your smartphone to see which doors are unlocked. If you or your children forgot to lock the doors or close the garage door, you can secure your home with a single button tap on the app. Receive a notification if your door is left unlocked, or personalize your notifications to receive an alert when your children get home from school. Schedule your doors to lock ten minutes after leaving for work and right before you go to bed. Securing every door in your home can be done anytime, anywhere.
Physical keys are easily lost and copied. Give personalized access codes to dogwalkers and other housekeeping staff so that you do not have to make copies of your keys. Restrict these access codes so that the relevant staff only has access to your home when they are scheduled to work. Receive a notification when they enter your home and when they leave, giving you peace of mind knowing that you are in complete control. You can even assign codes to extended family members in case of an emergency or even if they stop by often. For less common visitors, such as delivery drivers, you can receive a notification when they ring your video doorbell and see and speak to them using your smartphone. Then, temporarily unlock your door with just a tap, allowing the delivery driver to put the package safely into your home.
Your smart security system with remote access can even protect your home from threats from the inside. Monitor your utilities from the same app that you use to monitor the locks of your home. For example, get a notification when there is a leak in your water system and turn off the water remotely to prevent water from damaging your home. You can also track and adjust your home's temperature throughout the day to ensure your pets and children remain comfortable while home alone.
Keep a watchful eye on your property from anywhere by viewing live and recorded surveillance footage from your smartphone or tablet. Check on your children, pets, or house cleaners at any time, and receive real-time alerts of suspicious activity, such as lingering persons or vehicles. Plus, surveillance cameras featuring advanced video analytics allow you to customize your alerts so that you don’t receive a notification for routine activity, such as passing cars or neighbors.
