A home security system offers around-the-clock protection, but some users want more: protection and connection to their home.
Interactive monitoring is the solution for customers who seek total home awareness. It connects their mobile devices – like a smartphone or tablet – to their system and allows users to be aware of what’s going on at their home at all times.
There are a host of features available that help customize the level of connectivity desired. Today, we’re talking a look at all of the interactive features available with a FrontPoint system.
The Mobile App
Home awareness begins with the mobile app. Free to download, it gives you the ability to control your home alarm system from the palm of your hand. Whether you’re at a nearby restaurant or across the country, you’ll always be connected.
Instant Alerts and Notifications
The mobile app will send alerts and notifications instantly. This means that anytime a security sensor at your home is triggered, you’ll know about it right away so you can immediately take action.
You’ll also be notified anytime the status of your system is changed. This can be incredibly helpful (and reassuring) to see when your child comes home from school or when your spouse arrives after work.
Remote Control and Access
The mobile app also turns your mobile device into a remote control for your home security system, further increasing your control. Remotely access your system from just about anywhere. Forget to arm your system before leaving for work? No problem, just open up the app and disarm it there.
Additionally, you can also check on your system’s status, alarm history and visitor activity.
Live Camera Streams
Finally, camera users gain an additional benefit from interactive monitoring: the power to view live streams straight on their device! So when you receive an instant alert about a triggered sensor, you can turn on the live feed to see exactly what’s going in your home.
Also, any recorded motion-activated footage will immediately be sent to your phone just like any other instant alert.
24/7 Peace of Mind
Interactive monitoring brings a whole new level of control and security to users. Stay connected, and enjoy your around-the-clock peace of mind.
