If you ask us, one of the beauties of modern security systems is customization. In an industry that was once characterized by rigid, yet basic systems and packages, today’s home security is incredibly versatile and extremely customizable.
Home automation. Flood detection. Fire & carbon monoxide protection. Personal emergency response. These are just a few of the home security add-ons that make life better, easier and infinitely safer – just a few of the home security add-ons that we can safely say, will have you over the harvest moon (check it out September 27-29!) with customized glee.
Did you know that home automation has moved beyond simply locking your doors? Now, via the Alarm.com app, you can control every aspect of your smart home, from, yes, your door locks to your windows to your lights to your thermostat. What’s more, your home can learn your routines and respond in kind, for example locking the doors, securing windows, and closing the garage door when you leave for work each morning. Now that’s smart.
Outfitting your home with flood detection is almost the same as adding the ability to see the future. The latest and greatest flood detectors don’t only tell you when a pipe has burst – ahem, when you’ve already incurred $15,000 in damages – but can actually sense water problems before they become emergencies. The result is not only disaster prevention, avoided repair costs, and saved furniture, appliances and family heirlooms, but also peace of mind – the knowledge that whenever you leave your home, you leave it safe from even unforeseeable disasters.
Fire & Carbon Monoxide Detection
Traditional fire and carbon monoxide (aka the silent killer) detectors may alert you to a problem, but they’re not connected to emergency response. When you add fire and CO detection to your alarm package, what you’re adding is safety: the knowledge that we’re always watching, always aware of potential fire and CO threats to your family, and that at the first sign of trouble we’ll have the fire department and EMTs on the way to you.
Personal Emergency Response
Dubbed MyIndependence, My Alarm Center’s personal emergency response allows seniors to stay independent without ever being completely alone. The concept is both simple and simply perfect, connecting aging family, via an armband/pendant/wristband (your choice), to our 24/7 monitoring service. The result: 24/7 peace of mind, knowing your loved ones are safely independent, and yet just one-click away from round-the-clock help. Even better, your loved ones enjoy the confidence of living alone and the joy of independence.
