Back in the days of yore, home alarm systems had one purpose and purpose only: to help protect your home and family. Nowadays, it’s a different story, with alarm systems coming with all kinds of extra goodies. And one of these goodies – interactive features – helps us feel not just protected, but connected too.
Interactive features provides endless benefits, and is included as part of Frontpoint’s Interactive and Ultimate Monitoring plans. It gives you all the tools you need to stay in touch with your system’s activity. Here are some of the features you’ll get:
Having remote access to your alarm system means you stay connected, whether you’re at the office, on a business trip, or on vacation. Log into any web-enabled device – computer, smartphone, tablet – and you can monitor system activity, and arm and disarm from miles away.
As much as all of us would like to, we can’t always be at home. That’s why it’s critical that your alarm system informs you when something is wrong, even when you’re not there. With instant alerts and notifications, you’ll always be notified if anything is out of place.
Home Automation Control
Home automation and home security go together like peanut butter and jelly; it’s why every Frontpoint system comes automation-ready. Wireless light controls, automated thermostats and locks can all be seamlessly integrated into the network, making your system a one-stop hub for home control.
In short, Geo-Services automates specific functions based on your location. For example, you can create a rule that has your system notify you know that you’ve forgotten to arm it, or have your home’s temperature automatically adjust based on whether you’re leaving or arriving.
If you have cameras as part of your alarm system, interactive monitoring also gives you the ability to view live video feeds and motion-activated recordings, allowing you to keep tabs on exactly what’s going on inside your home.
As an added bonus, all of these features can be used on the Frontpoint mobile app! Check it out for yourself on your device’s app store.
