4 essential back-to-school alarm.com alerts

When it comes to keeping your family and home secure, alarm.com has your back. Because our home security technology is smarter, it can recongize when someone forgets something important and send you an alert. Often you'll be able to fix the problem with a single tap on your smartphone.

Here are 4 types of alarm.com alerts which are well worth setting up before you and your family navigate back-to-school transition.

1. Security reminders: You'll recieve an alert telling you what you forgot to do. On the alert is a button that remotely controls your smart lock, garage door, or security system. Tap it once, and your home is secure.

2. User code alerts: Give your kids their own user code for your security system or smart lock and create an user alert. When they let themselves in, alarm.com recongizes their code and sends you a confirmation that they're home.

3. Smart video clips: A video smart clip from a camera at your front door, delivered to your phone, shows you exactly who comes home with your kids.

4. Door left open alert: One useful safeguard is the 'door left open' triggered by your front door's contact sensor being left open too long. As well as triggering an alert, this information can also trigger your smart thermostat to set back, minimizing energy waste until the door is closed again.

Real-time alerts are just one of the smarter home security benefits you get with an alarm.com powered security system. To find out more give us a call 605-339-0575 for a free quote.
