To illustrate, in the event you are at work and someone walks up to your front porch, your video doorbell will detect the activity. This security component will automatically deliver a warning to your phone with a video clip of your visitor. You may then access your phone's security app and speak with the person at your door through the 2-way audio feature, or have connected smart lighting turn on, so it seems like you're home. In the event an intrusion does take place, your home’s protection will automatically alert your 24-7 monitoring agents, and they'll quickly call the police.
A security system defends against fires, flooding, and CO leaks
Various dangerous situations can happen at your residence. Flooding, fire, and CO leaks typically come unexpectedly and escalate quickly. Linking detectors to your home security system gives your smoke, flood, and CO sensors the same level of integration as your monitored motion detectors.
If a crisis occurs, your high-decibel siren will sound, prompting all occupants of the home to leave. You may also have an alert sent to your phone, which is especially advantageous when you're not home. Your monitoring agents are also notified, so they can get emergency services to your door while you get your family to safety.
