Can My Security System Control Other Features of My Home?

January 6, 2021 12:47 pm Published by

Our home is our most valuable possession. Protecting the people within it, the property surrounding it, the possessions within it, and the structure itself is critically important for all homeowners. An Instant Alarm home security system can give homeowners peace of mind whether they are spending the night cuddled up on the sofa with a movie or out-and-about. 

Security systems have become so advanced in the last few years that there are a number of other features and services that a security system can provide, beyond just the typical alert to an intruder. 

It makes absolute sense to invest in a system that can control other features of your home to keep you property protected no matter what the threat may be. Let’s take a look at some of the features that a home security system can provide for you and your family.

Home Alarm System 

Starting with the most obvious, a home security system can alert you (and our central monitoring station at Instant Alarm) if your home has experienced break in or a security threat that trips the alarming system. 

As a part of Instant Connect, homeowners will also be able to: arm or disarm the alarm system using a smartphone or other mobile device and receive text notifications from the alarm system explaining the status of the home. 

As an added feature, our alarm systems are very straightforward to use and are designed with your family in mind. That means that if you have a dog or cat, there is no need to worry as we offer equipment manufactured specifically with pets in mind.


Fire & CO Warning Systems 

With hundreds of lives lost and millions in property damage annually due to residential fires, it is important that your fire and carbon monoxide warning system is linked to your home security system. This ensures that whether smoke from a fire or gas called carbon monoxide is detected, our monitoring station will send the proper authorities to handle the situation. 

Temperature Monitoring 

One feature that many homeowners appreciate in a home security system is the ability to monitor the temperature of a home. For example, the homeowner and our monitoring station will be alerted if a home’s temperature has risen too high, causing a waste of energy, or too low, thus causing a situation where pipes could freeze. 

Water Monitoring

A nightmare scenario could play out in homes in our region of Massachusetts if a homeowner is away from their property and either a storm or a catastrophic pipe failure leads to flooding in the home. Using a water sensor designed to detect high water levels in your basement homeowners can be prepared in the case of an emergency.
