To illustrate, when you are at work and a stranger walks up to your main entry, your smart doorbell will sense the movement. The device will immediately dispatch an alert to your smartphone with video proof of your visitor. You can then utilize the security app on your phone and converse with whoever it may be through the 2-way audio capability, or have the front hall light turn on, so it looks like you're home. In the event a break-in does occur, your system will immediately notify your 24-7 monitoring agents, and they'll urgently summon law enforcement.
A security system can protect you from fire, floods, and carbon monoxide
Many different types of emergencies could happen at your residence. CO leaks, fires, and flooding generally arrive without warning and escalate quickly. Connecting safety equipment to your home security system allows your fire alarms and other sensors the same level of integration as your monitored motion detectors.
If emergency strikes, your high-volume alarm will go off, signaling every person in the residence to exit the premises. You could also have a warning dispatched to your smartphone, which is extremely beneficial when you're not home. Your monitoring agents will also be notified, so they can contact emergency services while you find safety.
