Tips To Control Your Bowling Green Home Security From Your Smartphone

Your property’s protection might now involve smart locks, flood sensors, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To control it all you are able to use your touchscreen hub when you are home.

Gain Remote Access From Any Location

Improve Your View

When you control your Bowling Green home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time video feed of your interior and exterior if your surveillance is operating. Access live footage from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and record shorter segments or a single image, and access lengthier videos as you like. In the event visitors stop at your house – the mail person, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a family member -- simply utilize the two-way talk feature to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Custom Schedules and Geo-Services

By using the central menu, you will find a range of advanced options. Schedule your comfort levels, sensors, smart lighting, and whatever else you want by creating a custom scene. In this area, you can program how your components interact together, and when you want them to activate or shut down. Set a bedtime scene that turns off all the common-area smart bulbs, flips on the exterior entry light, reduces the thermostat, and arms your alarm system. Then customize a start-your-day scene that reverts the settings when it’s time to rise and shine.

If you would like even more control, you could allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your residence secure itself by activating locks, turning off the lighting, and engaging your security alarm when you leave the driveway. Upon your return following another day in the office, your property will spring to action by automatically putting up the garage door and disarming your security system.
