Smart security systems are finding all of your home’s potential vulnerabilities —  whether from break-ins, accidental fires, or risk to elderly inhabitants home alone while you’re at work — and giving you access to monitor them remotely. Here are three ways you can easily keep an eye on your home from the office or while you’re on vacation. Below we’ve listed 3 ways for you to stay on top of alarm monitoring.

3 Ways for You to Stay on Top of Alarm Monitoring

  1. Receive alerts on your phone. Whether you notified at a set time throughout the day if no unusual behavior has been noted or you want to receive an alert each time an element of your security system is triggered, smart home security systems can link to your phone. You will receive a text message or email filled with whatever information you want on a daily or event-based schedule to give you peace of mind.
  2. Monitor your home and property on your iPad or laptop. If you have security cameras integrated into your home system, you can receive a live feed of your outside perimeter and any cameras you’ve installed inside your home anytime. This is great if you have pets you want to check in on while you’re at work or if you want to make sure everything in and around your home looks right while you’re out-of-state.
  3. Let someone else handle it. Security systems should come with a 24/7 monitoring service so you don’t have to keep an eye on your home but can instead rely on other people to monitor triggers in your home and respond accordingly. Whether you want to monitor your home yourself occasionally or you want to leave it entirely in your security company’s hands, someone will stay on top of it.
