Smart Home Alarm System

If you’re a parent like I am you worry. You worry about your kids, your finances, and especially your house when you’re away! A smart home alarm system can be expensive, complicated, and inaccessible if you are traveling, but this one isn’t!

With one small device placed on the bookshelf in our front room we can see the inside of our front door anywhere we travel. We do have a teenager too so no sneaking out anymore either (just kidding, she’s great)! LOL.

When I think of traditional home security systems I think of the word complicated and expensive, this is a smart way to save money.

You just plug it in, place this black device anywhere in your house (or in the front window sil if you want to keep an eye on who is at your front door) download the ADT Canopy app to complete your device registration and sign up for the emergency response and secure video storage options so you can monitor any and all activity on your phone!

You can place the LG Smart Security anywhere really, you just want to point it at an area you want to keep an eye on. We chose the front door since that is the main point of entry for our home.

It plugs into a nearby socket and you can download the app for free. The service is very reasonable and offers much more than just monitoring from your phone. ADT also offers this service with NO contracts which is nice especially if you travel a lot during the summer and only want to use it during that time period (you are free to do that without any penalties).

I will say it is nice to use it for peace of mind throughout the entire year though. 😉 All you do is arm the device when you leave with the touch of a button like this, and then before you open your door you disarm it.

If ADT detects motion while it is armed they are alerted and then they call you immediately to let you know there’s activity in your home. At that time you can hop on your phone and look to see why this may have happened.

If your teenager came home earlier than expected and triggered the alarm you can let them know it’s a false alarm, or if there is an intruder they will dispatch first-responders to your residence. If you do not answer they dispatch authorities as well to insure there is not a problem while you’re away.

You can also keep the video monitoring footage for up to 30 days if you want and their no-contract service provides 24/7 monitoring.

That’s not all it does! When you log in you can retrieve information regarding the humidity inside your house, what the temperature is inside, and many smart home devices (like Alexa and others) can be connected so you can adjust them right on your phone too! This would come in handy on your way home from a long trip, you could turn the air on to cool down your house before you arrive. 😉

There are many things I like about this idea! I really like being able to monitor the house remotely especially when we travel. I would LOVE being able to check it and change the temperature from wherever I am before we return home after a week of travel. That is great.
