Remote arming from your smartphone—benefits for home

Ever left home and forgotten if you switched on the alarm system or not? Not sure if the kids turned the alarm on before leaving for school?

Traditionally, the only way to arm or disarm your monitoring system was physically from home but Signal Security have introduced a new wireless monitoring service that allows you to arm and disarm your system from anywhere in the world via a smartphone or tablet internet connection.

How does it work?
With the new wireless monitoring service, the team at Signal Security is now able to monitor your home via Telstra’s data network instead of your personal phone line. By using an empty zone on your system, the service can be set up so that you’re able to view the arming status and control the system remotely from your smartphone.

Technical benefits…

  • Wireless monitoring allows for greater home security, as the communication isn’t at risk of being cut off or disconnected like a landline.
  • The new network connection also means connection testing can be made every 12 hours as opposed to the seven day testing with phone line monitoring.
  • No longer is a landline number required – say goodbye to line rental!
  • All communication costs are included within the monthly monitoring rate.

Additional home safety…
Not only technically speaking, remote access to your home monitoring system gives you the ability to let cleaners and tradespeople into your family home without giving away your alarm system’s PIN.
As part of the new service, you can also choose to receive a text message from the monitoring centre every time your system is armed and disarmed at no extra cost, so you can rest assured your kids have arrived home from school or soccer practice safely.
