Smart Alarm System: The Ultimate Life Hack
Forget 5-minute crafts, when it comes to the ultimate life hack, Smart Alarm Systems are where it’s at. This week’s security tech update unpacks the 7 ways in which a Smart Alarm system will change your life.
This one’s for parents – pet parents included of course! Use CCTV cameras to monitor the life of your home. Through your smartphone and from anywhere in the world, see for yourself who’s at the gate, what the kids are up to and why the alarm triggered. Other than ensuring the safety of your home, it’s the ultimate hack to check if the kids are actually doing their homework or that Fluffy hasn’t gone on an unsupervised adventure.
Wouldn’t it be a dream to open the blinds and turn the kettle on before you’ve even rolled out of bed? Not to mention, turn up that thermostat on a chilly winter’s morning before your feet even hit the icy-cold floor. A Smart Alarm System lets you do just that and although some might call it lazy, we like to think of it as efficient.
Arriving at a home covered in darkness can be pretty frightening. Before you leave for home, switch on both indoor and outdoor lights through the Smart Alarm app to settle your nerves and to help you spot anything out of the ordinary. It’s also the ultimate hack for holiday-goers, create the impression that people are home and deter burglars by remotely turning lights on and off.
You’re packed and ready for the beach, but the garden service hasn’t arrived yet, or you’re stuck at work but you need to let that repairman in and you’re wishing you could be in two places at once. Through automation, you can remotely open and close your driveway gate to safely let visitors onto your property, which means you never have to leave the ‘party’ early.
We’ve all done it once – slept in late and left the house in such a rush that we would have forgotten our head if it wasn’t attached to our body. Then on the drive to work we are left questioning whether we checked off everything on that morning to-do list, in particular ‘Did I arm the alarm system?’ With a Smart Alarm System, you can quickly check the status and remotely arm or disarm your alarm – from anywhere in the world!
Abracadabra! and Open Sesame! Never worry about losing your keys again – with a Smart Alarm System you can remotely open the garage door and unlock the front door without having to hunt for your keys.
Use the Smart Alarm System to keep an eagle-eyed watch over your family’s energy consumption. Effortlessly switch off unnecessary lighting from the comfort of your couch and regulate the geyser to save on one of the biggest energy users in your house.
