To illustrate, if you are at work and a person approaches your door, your video doorbell will sense the activity. The device will immediately deliver an alert to your cell phone with a video clip of your guest. You can then utilize your phone's security app and communicate with whoever it may be through the 2-way audio functionality, or have the front hall light turn on, so it seems like you're home. When an invasion does occur, your home’s defense will immediately warn your 24-7 monitoring agents, and they'll quickly call the police.
A security system defends against flooding, CO, and fires
Many different types of emergencies can take place at your house. Fire, flood, and carbon monoxide typically come unexpectedly and happen fast. Connecting detectors to your alarm system gives your smoke alarms and other components the same level of integration as your monitored motion detectors.
If emergency strikes, your high-volume alarm will go off, alerting all occupants of the residence to get out. You could even get an alert to your mobile device, which is especially advantageous if you're not home. Your monitoring agents will also be advised, so they can contact emergency services while you get your family to safety.
