How to Keep Your Family Safe with a Home Alarm System
Here’s How This Smart Solution Can Improve Your Home Security
When it comes to your family and home’s safety, you don’t want anything falling through the cracks. That’s why installing a top-notch home alarm system is a key component for your property’s entire home security system.
But what can a smart alarm system do for you exactly, and why is it necessary for your Lafayette-area property’s protection?
In this blog, we’ll go through an alarm system’s top features and benefits, and how this system can give you peace of mind.
Smart Alarms: What Do They Do?
Turns out, having an installed smart safety alarm system can be the difference between returning to a home in ruins or one that is perfectly intact – just as you left it.
First, it’s important you understand that alarms aren’t only for detecting whether or not someone has entered the house. Smart alarms have built-in sensors that can detect all sorts of issues and problems. There are ones that can sense when the basement is flooding or if a window and door has been broken into, saving you money on water damage and preventing a burglary theft by scaring away intruders.
Others can save your house and your entire family’s life if you are home. Carbon monoxide sensors and smoke and fire detectors can trigger your alarm to go off immediately, getting everyone safely out of the house and out of harm’s way.
Be in the Know Right Away
So how will you know if your alarms are going off when you’re halfway across the globe? The great news is that your system can send you instant notifications the minute any alarms go off. This is what makes a smart home alarm system “smart.”
When your smart alarms are triggered, you can get a text or email alert sent straight to your smartphone or tablet wherever you are in the world as long as you have internet access. Then you can check in from your phone to learn what the issue is. Integrate your surveillance cameras so you can see what is going on exactly – and decide what next steps to take or which authorities to call.
You can also have the police or fire department called in automatically, depending on the situation. Or maybe your alarms go off for a tad bit of water flooding in the bathroom, but you want to send the appropriate help over on your own time table. You get to decide when and how you deal with each unique event that your alarm system detects.
