To illustrate, when you are running errands or working and a stranger approaches your main entry, your video doorbell will detect the activity. The device will automatically dispatch an update to your smartphone with video footage of your guest. You can then utilize your phone's security app and communicate with your guest through the 2-way audio functionality, or have connected smart lighting illuminate, so it seems like you're home. If an intrusion actually happens, your home’s protection will immediately notify your around-the-clock monitoring agents, and they'll quickly contact the authorities.
A security system defends against flooding, CO, and fires
Many different types of dangerous situations may happen at your home. Fire, flood, and carbon monoxide generally come unexpectedly and happen fast. Linking safety equipment to your alarm system allows your smoke alarms and other components the same level of integration as your monitored motion detectors.
When disaster hits, your alarm’s siren will sound, alerting all occupants of the residence to leave. You could also get an alert to your mobile device, which is particularly helpful if you're not home. Your monitoring agents will also be informed, so they can get emergency services to your door while you find safety.
