Interactive Home Security Systems

February 26th, 2013

Interactive home security refers to functionality that allows customers to control their alarm systems remotely through a computer or smartphone. Most home security companies provide some level of interactive access but cost, availability, and features vary widely. A few DIY home security systems provide interactive features but it’s pretty uncommon.

Interactive Home Security System Pricing and Costs

Some home security providers charge for their interactive access. For example, ADT charges as much as $10 to $15 per month for interactive. With Protect America, you can receive interactive for free when you order a cellular or broadband monitoring solution. Regardless of the company, interactive access will generally cost more than standard home security solutions. Interactive access is not available with cheaper landline monitoring solutions, only with broadband and cellular service.

Choose a broadband or cellular monitoring solution from Protect America and save hundreds compared to competitors. Every customer that orders a Protect America security system will receive a Simon XT home alarm system for no upfront cost. When you choose cellular or broadband monitoring, you get a home security system with interactive access for no cost. Simply pay your monthly monitoring fee and the equipment is yours to keep.

Interactive Home Security Features

The specific features offered by a company’s interactive services will vary depending on equipment and customer choice. Most interactive services will include an app that allows for simple control from smartphones, like Android devices or the iPhone. Some of the more common features associated with interactive access include remote arming/disarming, live video (requires cameras), and push notifications. Interactive home security apps should also tell you which doors or windows are open and if a specific piece of equipment is faulty.
