Part One

Simple burglar alarm products are taking a back seat to alarm systems integrated with smart home automation.  Smart home systems allow you to monitor and control your home from anywhere in the world using a smartphone app.  ABC Fire & Burglar Alarm is proud to partner with to offer the most advanced, user friendly smart home systems on the market. Let’s take a look at some of the tasks you can complete when you have a home alarm system integrated with smart home automation:

Arm and Disarm System

You can arm and disarm your home alarm system  from anywhere using the smarthome app.  This is especially important for people who like to “double check” to make sure their system is armed.  It is also convenient for family members who might forget the alarm panel access code.  You will also be alerted on your smartphone if a zone is breached.  Residential security system monitoring is key because if someone is trying to break into your home or smoke is detected, help will be sent right away.

Monitor Security Cameras

Security cameras can be monitored from your smartphone, tablet or computer.  This is especially convenient for parents who might want to monitor their babysitter or teenagers who are in the home while they are away.  Ever wonder what your dog or cat does while you are not home?  Simply tune into your security cameras to find out.  If you get a call from your fire alarm monitoring company you can view your security cameras to see what might be happening while the fire department is en route.  The benefits are endless!

Control Thermostats

Smart home automation allows you to control the temperature of your home from your smartphone, tablet or computer.  You can also be alerted if your home reaches a certain temperature.  This is especially important for pets.  If your air conditioner or heater goes out while you are at work, the sooner you know, the better.
