How Home Security Monitoring Protects You During the Holidays
What Actually Happens if an Alarm Rings When You’re Not Home?
It’s that time of year again! Amid the whirlwind of wrapping gifts, solidifying travel plans and decorating, you also have to consider your home security. Ensuring everyone’s safety while hosting can feel stressful enough, but what if you plan to travel?
You probably have nagging doubts about just how capable your home security monitoring system really is and how well it protects your Nashville, TN, home when you’re miles away. In this blog, we explore what happens during an unexpected event and how your security system handles it for you. Keep reading to learn more!
Home Access Control From Anywhere
It happens to the best of us: We realize too late that we left our front or garage door unlocked back at home. Because effective crime prevention starts at our entryways, we suggest implementing smart locks that you can access from anywhere. Pull up your Control4 app to secure any open doors and arm your whole-home alarm system to prepare your home for anything.
Sensors, Cameras, Alarms, Alerts and More
A security event might unfold differently depending on whether you have a fire emergency or a package theft, but most emergencies follow a similar pattern to what we describe below. Though it’s an unpleasant scenario to discuss, we’ll use a break-in as an example.
You’ve armed your security suite before leaving the house. Your car is gone, so a thief approaches your house, hoping to catch you unprotected. High-quality surveillance, like the Alarm.com and Control4 systems that we install, can distinguish whether or not a person looks familiar, so it won’t bombard you with notifications when a babysitter or mail carrier approaches. This person, however, seems suspicious. You get a notification inviting you to view footage.
Your system instantly jumps to your defense with many actions taking place at once. Your chosen security system notifies our monitoring station of the break in, while your alarm goes off. You can also integrate outdoor lighting to scare the criminal from your home.
You’ve looked at the footage: What’s next? The monitoring center will first call you and check whether it’s an emergency or it’s a false alarm. If you confirm the emergency, we’ll direct the police to your house.
