11 Nov Interactive Features Part 3: Location-Based Services
Thanks to our busy lifestyles, most of us do not spend a ton of time at home. Even on the weekends, we often have plans that prevent lounging around all day. And this is a cause for concern when it comes to home security. Long days out of the home equate to an empty home, leaving it vulnerable to undetected break-ins – unless it’s protected by a home alarm system.
In this series we discuss a number of ways to keep an eye on your home, no matter where you are through interactive features that come with the Security One home alarm system and alarm.com.
Part 3: Location-Based Services
You need to check out Geo-Services. This feature, which can be very useful if you’re the forgetful type, automatically reminds you that your system is unarmed when you’re away.
How does it work? The Geo-Services creates a large, imaginary fence around your alarm system called a geo-fence. Using the GPS in your smartphone, it can detect when you’ve left the geo-fence and will automatically check your alarm system’s status. If it’s not armed, it will automatically send you a notification. It can also be used to further automate your home, but that’s best saved for a different post.
Just because you’re not home does not mean you can’t keep it safe. Security One’s interactive features are easy to use and give you the means to watch over your home at any given time, bringing your home security to a whole new level and making sure you have peace of mind.
