Remotely Controlling Your Home: 5 Ways a Home Security System Can Give You More than Just Peace of Mind

No matter who you are, or what you do, your home is always at risk of fire, theft, or intrusion.

That’s why you need a comprehensive residential security system — to keep your home, belongings, and, most importantly, loved ones safe and secure. Whether at home during the day, asleep at night, or while you’re away, you will feel safer knowing that you, your family, and your home are protected. It’s the difference between feeling secure and being secure.

But a home security system can offer so much more beyond fire detection, security and monitoring. From remotely controlling your home to geofencing to video verification, there are many great ways customized residential security solutions can give you more than just peace of mind.

Mobile Control

The power is literally in your hands with mobile control apps that enable you to control lights, locks, appliances, thermostats, your garage and more, from anywhere — your phone, tablet or wrist! Save money on heating, cooling, and electric bills by shutting things down when you’re gone, then set your temperature or lighting preferences remotely, so when you get home the house is just the way you like it. You can also utilize mobile control apps to make it look like someone is always at home — even when you’re not — to deter intruders.


Who says a GPS is just to prevent you from getting lost? Geofencing allows you to use the location services (GPS) on your cell phone in conjunction with your home security system to set up virtual perimeters in and around your house. With other connected devices, you can track when your children, spouse, or other relatives enter or leave the predefined boundaries, so you’ll always know the whereabouts of your loved ones. Not only that, you can tie it in with your mobile control apps to automatically activate your smart devices whenever a family member arrives at or leaves the geofence.

Video Verification

With video verification and validation solutions, you can monitor your kids, family, or caretakers from the web or your mobile device, whenever you feel the need. And, you can record video clips, watch streaming video, get real-time alerts and verify alarms. Your cameras can automatically begin recording when they sense motion, and send you email alerts or clips. Your security system can also send you an alert any time your system is tripped, and you can remotely see if there’s really a problem or if someone accidentally set off the alarm.

Emergency Preparedness

Emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time — upstairs, downstairs, and even in the yard or driveway. With a home security system, you can be prepared for anything with tools that instantly put you in touch with emergency response professionals. On top of keeping your home and family protected, this gives you the ability to empower aging family members with medical issues who are not yet ready for a nursing home to live more independently, giving them freedom during their twilight years while providing you peace of mind about their safety.

Overall Convenience

As if all the previous points weren’t enough to convince you that getting a security system is definitely the way to go, let’s take a look at some other facts that make them so convenient. Houses with home security not only protect themselves, but they also lower the crime rate in their neighborhoods. If anyone does somehow manage to break in, they won’t have much of a chance to do harm or take much because they’ll have a lot less time than they anticipated. And, you can report any medical emergencies at the press of a button, eliminating the need to have a phone in hand to dial 911. Also, insurance rates will be lower since you’ll be less likely to file a claim — some companies even offer discounts to homeowners with security services. Plus, if you ever decide you need a change of scenery, home buyers will be more intrigued with your home due to the level of safety. Is this your forever home? A proper security system will enable you to remain independent in your old age because of its backup resources.

As you can see, it is essential to protect your property and your family. So why not make your home a safer place and give yourself more than just peace of mind?
