Nana decided to drive up from Texas for a surprise visit, but you and the family just sat down at a local restaurant. Do you leave Nana sitting on her suitcase outside until you’re done eating? Not if you want any of her homemade fried chicken again. With surveillance cameras as part of your home automation system, you’ll receive an alert on your phone when the doorbell rings, instant footage of who’s at the door, and you can even talk to her through your mobile app to greet her and let her know you’re not home. Remotely unlock the door using the same app so she can go inside. Then lock up when she’s safely indoors.


If you’re away from home but receive a weather alert of incoming flash floods and high winds, it’s natural to worry about the state of your property. In these cases, you can check in on your home at any time, no matter where you are, using your mobile app to view live footage of your property and make sure no trees have crashed into your yard or flooding hasn’t damaged your home. You can also set up real-time alerts to your smartphone for any possible property damage that your cameras pick up, such as broken windows from flying debris or moving water in the home.
