The Benefits of Interactive Features

Posted by , , at 10:59 am

Back in the days of yore, home alarm systems had one purpose and purpose only: to help protect your home and family. Nowadays, it’s a different story, with alarm systems coming with all kinds of extra goodies. And one of these goodies – interactive features – helps us feel not just protected, but connected too.

Interactive features provides endless benefits, and is included as part of Frontpoint’s Interactive and Ultimate Monitoring plans. It gives you all the tools you need to stay in touch with your system’s activity. Here are some of the features you’ll get:

Remote Control

Having remote access to your alarm system means you stay connected, whether you’re at the office, on a business trip, or on vacation. Log into any web-enabled device – computer, smartphone, tablet – and you can monitor system activity, and arm and disarm from miles away.

Instant Notifications

As much as all of us would like to, we can’t always be at home. That’s why it’s critical that your alarm system informs you when something is wrong, even when you’re not there.  With instant alerts and notifications, you’ll always be notified if anything is out of place.

Home Automation Control

Home automation and home security go together like peanut butter and jelly; it’s why every Frontpoint system comes automation-ready. Wireless light controls, automated thermostats and locks can all be seamlessly integrated into the network, making your system a one-stop hub for home control.

Geo-Services

In short, Geo-Services automates specific functions based on your location. For example, you can create a rule that has your system notify you know that you’ve forgotten to arm it, or have your home’s temperature automatically adjust based on whether you’re leaving or arriving.

Camera Access

If you have cameras as part of your alarm system, interactive monitoring also gives you the ability to view live video feeds and motion-activated recordings, allowing you to keep tabs on exactly what’s going on inside your home.

 

As an added bonus, all of these features can be used on the Frontpoint mobile app! Check it out for yourself on your device’s app store.

    I have always thought that home security systems were a good idea. I am happy to know that now they are available with added features. Having a camera would be nice to monitor exactly who comes around the premises of the home. Another good thing to look at would be finding a system within your budget.

    Very interesting…

    I specifically liked the GEO services and camera access portion…

    Thanks you for sharing this technically informative post with us.

    It’s interesting that you can view live videos of what’s happening in your home. My husband and I hire a babysitter once a week and it would be nice to check on her to be sure the house is safe while were away. When my husband gets home, I am going to talk to him about getting a home alarm system with cameras.

    It’s great that interactive security monitoring would also allow me to have camera access to any part of my home. Being able to see what’s happening in and around my house would help me feel a lot safer. There have been a few times when I wondered who was standing outside my door, so having security cameras installed around my house that are connected to my phone will allow me to see if an intruder is on my property.
