Home and small business alarms have taken on a fantastic transformation in recent years. Not too long ago, when a break-in occurred, there was a lone loud siren sounding at a property along with a phone call to the alarm company’s central station. Wireless communication and smartphone technology have been a game-changer in terms of speed, accuracy, and response. The rising star at the center of security is digital video. Near-instant video notification is now available in both home and business applications, giving alarm customers more information than ever before. Police and Fire Departments who respond to alarm calls are also experiencing the benefits with fewer false calls and better notifications. Aside from life-safety applications, alarms tied to smartphones and tablets offer great non-emergency features like temperature control, pet monitoring, and door lock commands.
