5 Ways to Protect Your Home with a Mobile App
How easy would it be to bring your home security with you on the go? Well, it’s easier than you think! Guardian Alarm’s MyGuardianAlarm mobile app combines the latest security solutions and our local 24/7 monitoring with the convenience of bringing your system anywhere. In fact, the app allows you to check on your home whether you’re on a smartphone, tablet, or desktop.
In the past, arming or disarming your alarm system could only be done from the control panel or keypad inside your home. But with the MyGuardianAlarm mobile app, you can arm your system, watch live or recorded camera footage, adjust your smart thermostat, and more, with just a few taps. Take a look at this quick guide to show you all the great things the app can do for you.
1. Remote Capabilities
By using your smartphone or tablet, you can have full control of your security system without having to manually arm or lock up. With the MyGuardianAlarm mobile app, your home can transform into a smart home. Features like opening the garage door, disarming the alarm, turning on your smart lights, and more, all happen with just a few taps. Plus, you can customize automatic alerts and functions determined by your physical location. If you leave the area without locking up, you’ll get an instant alert that the system locked up for you.
2. Add Individual Users
Give family and friends their own code to use for unlocking doors and disarming the alarm. When this unique code is used to enter your home, you’ll know who entered by getting an alert sent to your smartphone. If you’re going to be working late, you can get alerts when your kids come home from school. You can also get alerts if there’s no activity during a certain time, like when your kids don’t come home when they’re supposed to.
3. Real-Time Video Alerts
Once you add smart security cameras to your home, the MyGuardianAlarm mobile app sends you instant alerts when there are people, animals, or vehicles detected. With this feature, you can quickly check-in and watch live footage of package deliveries, your kids getting home from school, or if there’s someone unexpected on your property. Plus, if there’s someone trying to break into your home, you can scare them away using two-way voice control right from your smartphone.
4. Automatic Rule Settings
One of the best things about Guardian Alarm’s home security systems is that you can customize your system around your daily routine. For instance, you can set your system to operate at certain times of the day, such as turning on the lights if you’ll be home after dark. You can also automatically turn down the thermostat and close window shades to help save money on your energy bill. This gives you the ability to have an entire suite of smart home features operating around your schedule every day.
5. 24/7 Protection
With the latest security technology, your home will have the protection that you and your family need to make your daily routine safe and easy. By protecting your home with Guardian Alarm, your security system communicates all signals to our UL-certified 24/7 monitoring center. From alarm triggers to smoke detection, our analysts respond to intrusion, fire, and carbon monoxide emergencies and rapidly dispatch local police, fire, or EMS.
Plus, when it comes to protecting your home, there’s nothing like using a professional company.
