Mobile phone-connected security alarms: how they work and their advantages

Monitoring and controlling the security of your home or business from your mobile phone is no longer a pipe dream. Many alarm systems now offer the possibility of connection to your mobile phone, usually via an application that makes them easy to use.

In addition, the most advanced applications also allow control of the different elements of the home and business, whether or not they are directly related to security, in these cases we are talking about integrated home automation systems.

Below, we explain how home and business alarms connected to mobile phones work and the advantages they offer.

How do mobile connected security alarms work?

Most mobile connected security alarms work with one or more of the following systems that enable digital wireless communication: GSM, GPRS, 2G/3G and/or IP.

The end result is, in any case, communication between the control panel located in the home or business and the user's mobile phone via an APP installed on the device. As a general rule, the installation of these applications is very simple and free of charge. The various functions they have depend on the components and the model of the alarm system.

What are the advantages of mobile-connected security alarms?

As mentioned above, home or business alarm monitoring applications are already designed to be operated by anyone without prior knowledge.

Some of the main reasons why you should install a mobile connected alarm include:

  • Simple operation. The user has control over the alarm system, so he/she can activate or deactivate its functions without the need for intermediaries.
  • Access to live video surveillance. The owner of the house or business can view images of the property in real time. Both as a consultation and in the case of an alarm, he can check what he wanted or rule out false alarms and remain calm.
  • Alerts. In the event of an alert or intrusion, the owner receives a warning, which will also be sent to the Alarm Reception Centre if this service is contracted.
  • Notifications. Many applications have a log of changes made to the system and a history of reports.
  • Most of these mobile-connected alarms can be installed in properties without internet connection such as country houses and second homes.

Are mobile phone-connected alarms safe?

The answer to this question depends on the quality of the alarm system installed and contracted.
