Several days ago, one of our customers (also a friend) had his store burglarized by a “Smash & Grab” intruder. As customers of APB you already have an alarm system, so arm it more often and let the alarm and our Central Station do their job of helping to protect families & their possessions.
You’re an intelligent, capable homeowner. Maybe you think that’s everything you need to handle an at-home emergency all on your own. But the reality is, most people need active support, especially if the emergency is a break-in or a fire. When one of these events happens, your number one job is to get yourself and your loved ones out of the house safely. Dialing 911 on top of that is simply too much for one person. If you have a monitored home security system, there’s good news: Your system will do that part for you.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a button that did difficult tasks at home for you? There may not be one that cleans house or mows the lawn, but there is one that can perform your home automation tasks. It’s called Scenes, and it actually gives you a total of four buttons – one for each of your most important times of day. Here’s what those times of day are, and the button that can help you make each one simpler.
Your security system is there to protect your home from break-ins. But what happens if an intruder targets not only your home, but your security system itself? In this burglary tactic, known as “crash and smash,” the intruder breaks into the home, then smashes the home security panel to prevent the system from activating. The end game, of course, is for the intruder to get access to what they want without the system calling for help.
If you decided that 2020 is your year to live life to the fullest, you need all the help you can get to make sure your necessary tasks still get done. Home automation technology you control from a convenient smartphone app can help you streamline your day, so you’ll have more time to enjoy all your family’s most important moments. Here’s what it can do for you.
