In the past, homeowners could only wish they could know what might be going on at home when they weren’t there. Now, that’s easy to do anytime if smart video is part of the home security system. It’s as simple as taking out your smartphone, opening your home security app and checking out the footage.
Here’s what else homeowners need to know about smart security video.
It’s not one-size-fits-all.
Smart video cameras come in a variety of models, so homeowners have lots of choices. This could make choosing the right camera a daunting task – but with the right home security company guiding you, it’s easy to find one that fits your home size, family size, and household budget.
It’s accompanied by high quality monitoring service.
Smart security video can be viewed on a smartphone app, and the notification feature lets you decide what kind of events you want an alert for – for example, people coming home or someone knocking at the door. But what if an event is a true emergency, and you miss the alert? That’s why the monitoring service is so important. The trained security operators monitor our homeowners’ systems and respond to their alarm activations. The technologies all work in concert, with motion sensors detecting activity, smart video capturing the image, and system monitoring responding to the signal and sending help when it’s needed.
It’s not just for security.
Smart security video is fantastic for security, but it can do even more. It can also simplify what happens in the aftermath of a disaster. For instance: After a house fire, the video can be submitted to the insurance company and used as documentation to protect the homeowner from liability. After a catastrophe, it’s one less thing to worry about.
