Traditional home security systems typically included an alarm and monitoring service. While these systems were able to alert you and the authorities of break-ins and intruders, they were quite limited compared to the smart home security systems available on the market today. JTL Alarms & Surveillance in Edmonton shares more:
Control your home security from your smart phone.
Using smart home security keeps your home safe and comfortable, with a simple tap on your smart phone or tablet. When you’re ready to go to bed, tap your phone to arm your system to stay and your home will automatically be armed, locking doors and windows and checking that the garage door is closed. It will also adjust your thermostat for a comfortable sleep and turns off the lights as you head to bed.
You can control all those things from your smart phone, from any location at any time. That means you can turn lights on and off, room by room, change the thermostat and make sure your doors are locked and system armed from your office or while you’re on vacation.
Using geo-fences to take care of things for you.
Your system can set up a geofence, a virtual geographic boundary, using GPS technology so your smart home security system will know when you are nearing home. When your mobile device is within the set geofence, your automated home security starts kicking into action. You can program it to turn the thermostat back up if you had it down while you were away during the day, for the lights to come on and as you approach, for the garage door to open.
If you leave your geofence without properly locking the house or setting the alarm, you’ll get a reminder on your smart phone, so you can do so, making sure your home is secure. You can lock your doors, make sure the garage is closed and arm your system from anywhere. You’ll never have to worry that you forgot to lock the house.
Real time surveillance.
Smart home security can give you a notification, complete with live video from your surveillance cameras, when your kids arrive home from school. You can also be notified when your kids arm or disarm the security system, so you know your kids are safe inside until you get home. This can also be used to monitor your home for other people, guests or intruders, approaching and/or entering your home.
