A security system is an important way to keep a building safe. But with many different options, an interactive security system may be more appropriate for you. Here are 5 reasons why having an interactive security system can be useful:

  1.  Email/text notification can be sent to you for events such as: system arming/disarming, low battery, power outage, and system alarm events. This feature allows for almost immediate notification in addition to the normal voice calls by a monitoring station.
  2. A Web based reporting platform allows you to retrieve reports for arming/disarming and alarm activation events. These reports can be printed or saved for future viewing.5
  3. Remote web based user code additions and deletions allow a business owner to modify user codes for employees via a web interface. This feature would save a trip to the site in the event a terminated employee’s code needs to be deleted from the system or if a new employee’s code needs to be programmed into the system.
  4. A web based interface can allow a business owner to manage multiple locations with the use of a single username and password.
  5. An interactive web based solution can allow you to remotely control thermostats; locks and lighting via a PC or mobile app. When the system is armed the thermostat can be set to a desired temperature and the lighting can be turned off. This could save big money on energy costs!
  6. Check your security cameras from your phone! An interactive system is an easy way to check in on your home with the click of a button.
