A home security system guarantees the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home and family are protected. Knowing they are safe is valuable, but seeing is believing. With 24/7 monitoring, you are directly connected with your home security system around the clock. Any triggered detector sends an immediate signal or message to you via text message, email, phone call—or whichever communication mode you choose, so you can size up the situation and take the appropriate action. Whether this message comes to you directly from your system or from a monitoring service, 24 hour a day security monitoring provides uninterrupted protection.

How 24 Hour Monitoring Works

24/7 home security monitoring connects you to your security system via any web-enabled computer or mobile device. No matter where you are, you have secure access to your home, allowing you to monitor and control your security system, whether by viewing pictures or watching live video of your home, or setting up a schedule to turn on the lights, at any time, day or night. Basically, 24/7 monitoring gives you direct and immediate access to your security system, and in the case of a triggered sensor in your home, an alarm signal is sent to you and, if needed, emergency services are alerted and will be on their way.

Options for 24 Hour Security Systems

24 hour security can be set up to meet every homeowner’s needs. Contact may be made from a variety of devices such as your home control station, security system computer login, smart phone via email or texting, tablet, a keychain, or a phone call from a monitoring service. Notifications can be set up to include:

  • Multiple contact modes as backup (i.e. phone call and text message)
  • Triggered alarm
  • Cancelled alarm
  • Activity alerts, such as someone entering or leaving the home
  • Open doors and windows
  • Power alerts such as power failure or low batteries
  • Log of events history to see what is happening in your home

Who Benefits from Having Security Monitoring 24/7

Anyone who wants their home and related activities accessible at all times. The specifics of 24/7 monitoring may be personalized to suit any household, but may be especially useful to families:

  • Who are away from home for long periods of time
  • Own additional properties or structures, such as a vacation home or remote workshop or garage
  • Who want to monitor comings and goings of children, housekeepers or caretakers
  • Who want the ability to control household settings like temperature and lighting
