A home security system may make your life easier in many ways. Sure, your system is excellent for triggering a response in the case of a burglary or other emergency but that’s not the only value smart home security can provide. Smart home security can be a tool to make your life easier and help you promote safety and even wellness in your family. How can home security help you stay well? Here are three ways!
Home Security Can Help Alleviate Stress
If you’re concerned about the security in your home, you’re not alone. In 2017, 51% of adults found that violence/crime was their most common source of stress according to an American Psychological Association (APA) report. Crime can happen anywhere, even in your own home. Burglary occurred approximately once every 21 seconds in the United States in 2016. With monitored home security, you have a deterrent by way of your visible security system signs and you know that as soon as your system is triggered, a 24/7 monitoring center can alert the proper authorities. In the case of Guardian Protection Service’s monitoring centers, authorities will be notified in an average of 30 seconds or less.
This is not the only way that smart home security can help destress your life. The “smart” parts of Guardian security systems are smart devices that help you control your home more easily. Guardian’s app allows you to do things like
- Control a smart lock
- Arm/disarm your security system
- Control your smart garage door
- Check-in on the view from your security cameras.
This can make your day-to-day life more convenient. Learn more by investigating a day in the life with a Guardian Smart Home.
Home Security Can Allow You To Check In
If someone is home sick, from a spouse to an elderly parent, it can be hard to be sure they are ok if you are at work. Guardian’s indoor surveillance cameras can be moved and placed in any location in your home, allowing you to visually check on a sick person staying at home. You’ll be able to know if they look like they’re doing well or not and if you need to potentially go home to offer additional help.
If you have a sick child, you want to check-in on them frequently but you also want them to have the chance to sleep and hopefully get better. With Guardian video security, you can even use your surveillance camera temporarily in your children’s rooms to make sure that they’re doing ok without having to enter their room and possibly wake them up. Knowing what’s going on with your family throughout a period of illness, can help you help them as much as you can.
Home Security Can Help You Get Quick Medical Assistance
In an emergency medical situation, getting help quickly can be essential. With a home security system, you have easier ways to trigger the notification of first responders. Sure you could call 911 and go through the process of getting them to send an ambulance, or you can initiate a panic signal on your security system control panel and then Guardian’s highly trained monitoring center employees will take care of notifying the proper authorities.
If you or a member of your household needs even more immediate access, we offer medical alert pendants so that you can trigger a Panic Signal to go to the monitoring center with the push of a button. Elderly people aging at home or those with mobility problems can wear this medical pendant on their wrist or as a necklace to have access at any time even if they’ve fallen or become stuck somewhere in the home.
