Because they’re primarily designed to be triggered after someone has already broken into your house, burglar alarm systems have largely been a reactive tool in the past. With a smart burglar alarm system from Safe Home Security, though, you can be more active in managing the security of your home.

The main advantage a smart burglar alarm has over earlier systems is the ability to give you real-time updates. No matter where you are, smart alarm systems let you check the status of your space on your mobile device in seconds.

This means no more surprises when you return home after a long vacation, and if an incident does occur, you will be notified in moments along with the appropriate authorities. If you want additional layers of security, a network of cameras and sensors around your home can create a strong safety net, and all of them can be tied to your alarm system.


A smart burglar alarm is a great tool to improve your home security, but there are times when you’ll want to know everything’s OK without obsessively checking your phone. Fortunately, Safe Home Security offers monitoring services in addition to installing smart alarm systems to give you even greater peace of mind.

With burglary, fire and smoke alarm services, you can rest easy knowing someone’s watching over your home when you are unable to do so. This also means a faster response time if something happens and helps ensure any system hiccups can be corrected promptly.


Smart alarm systems are great tools for keeping people out of your home, but they can also be useful for letting people in if need be. If your alarm system includes a smart doorbell, you can get a live video feed to see who’s at the door, unlock the door to let them in, then lock it behind them when they’re gone. This is a great feature when it comes to package deliveries or other moments when someone needs to get inside your home when you aren’t there.

Similarly, a smart burglar alarm gives you much more information on how the system itself is running at any given moment. Instead of having to check each door or window individually before leaving your home, glance at a display to see where any doors or windows might be open. Once you’re satisfied, turn the system on or off in seconds from your phone or other device.


We’d all like to think we’ll never be the victim of a burglary, but there’s no harm in preparing for the possibility all the same. If you want to know more about Safe Home Security’s alarm systems, call us at 800-833-3211 or visit us online.
