For homeowners one of the greatest additions to the security system is probably home security camera remote monitoring. Like the new toy on the technology market there are dozens of apps available to help you integrate home automation into your life with ease. At the same time most home security companies offer programs that are specially suited to the monitoring services you already receive. What is it about these programs that make them so useful or desirable? What can remote monitoring add to your home security system that will help you enjoy not only greater safety, but greater convenience in your life? Here are just a few of the most popular uses for (reasons people love) remote access.
We’ve all heard of nanny cams, the tiny little devices that allow homeowners and parents to make sure employees are behaving in professional ways. Well, unlike nanny cams you’re not only going to have recordings to review, but you can also watch it live! Turning on the app and flipping open a camera to see how things are going is easy and convenient. For those of us who are homebodies you can check in on the kids, spouse, or pets whenever you’d like to and keep the home fires burning.
Cameras these days have the ability to do more than passively observe the world around them. With a motion detecting camera set up in your home or watching over your front door these cameras can actually notify you of any activity within their scope. Notifications include images in emails or footage of the movement. Homeowners have actually used this information to call the police and catch burglars in the act! That’s what surveillance is for isn’t it? Not just to try and deal with the recuperation, but to actually prevent crime from happening.
Electronic Door Locks
Many working moms enjoy using the live monitoring to check in on the kids as they get home. Many more enjoy being able to unlock the door for the kids and lock it back up with them safe inside. Home automation apps from professional security services allow you to integrate your remote control into the whole house. If you forget to lock the door, or have a surprise guest you want to let in the house you can do it no-stress from your phone.
More than home security you can enjoy home convenience with a remote accessible security system. Most of these systems allow you to turn on the lights, adjust the thermostat in your home and check on various systems in the house. Home automation means you can make sure everything is comfortable for the family after a long day- and that’s just nice!
Peace of Mind
With home automation or remote monitoring apps you can really enjoy peace of mind, after all, turning on the system is as easy as the push of a button. Instead of worrying all day whether or not you armed it when you left in the morning, you can take care of it all remotely. And no matter how far you go, you can always check in and make sure all is well on the home front.
