The rise of the smart alarm
Smart alarms and smart CCTV security solutions that make it easier than ever to monitor your property
Smart alarms are a new generation of intruder, motion, door contact and CCTV devices that enable you to keep a close eye on what is going on in your home. These systems can be either wired or wireless.
What makes them really special is their secure cloud server and the fact that you can control your smart alarm from where ever you are in the world. These systems communicate with a secure app on your tablet or smart phone – so you can easily view and be notified of activity at your property.
Key features of a smart alarm:
- Easy to monitor on an app
- Store data on a secure cloud based server
- Can be wireless or wired
- Can send you email notifications when activity is detected
Smart alarms and smart phones
There are many advantages of being able to monitor and control your security system from anywhere.
Imagine, you’ve have a regular cleaner, gardener or neighbour visit your property. Perhaps they forgot the alarm code – not a problem, you can de-activate your system via the app and re-activate it remotely once they leave the building. Furthermore, if there is a certain area of the house they you do not allow access to, you can set up an alert to let you know if a room, or even a drawer, has been opened.
And this system also works in parallel with smart CCTV. So, if there is unusual activity in a room, you can be notified and can instantly view the CCTV footage to see if it is your neighbour feeding your cat or an unwanted intruder. We install top brands such as Hikvision and Texecom.
You can also monitor the fire protection and CO2 levels at your property and be warned of any smoke or high carbon monoxide at your property.
Holiday peace of mind
One of the best benefits of this comes when you are away from home for a longer period of time. Knowing you can quickly check that everything is secure, by taking a quick look at your phone, gives you so much peace of mind. So, if you are relaxing on the beach and suddenly fear you’ve left a window open- you can just grab your smart phone, find out and relax again.
