There is a boom in the cell phone industry of Mobile Apps .But are they worth the extra monthly cost ? Is My home really that secure?
Mobile Apps allow phone users to do many things that were previously not possible. There are Apps that will turn your phone into a flashlight and there are Apps that can turn your phone into a high resolution scanner. The next thing you know there will an App that will allow your phone to make pancakes.
Here lately there seems to be a trend for mobile applications that will allow users to check on their home security system’s status remotely. For example, if you forget whether or not you have armed the system, you can check the status on your smart phone or tablet and then quickly take action (either arm or disarm) on the system as desired.
These smart phone and tablet Apps also make it possible to see recent activity. When purchasing a new alarm system, consider if these features are important to you. Visit our ADT Pulse page to learn more about interacting with your alarm system.
With America’s Ultimate Security, if you sign up with ADT Pulse, your added monthly expense shouldn’t be that much. We’re talking maybe $5 -$8 more per month depending on what monitoring plan we are looking at. As with any plan, we will set you up with an attractive offer for very little down payment and a 36 monthly agreement.
Also, many of the same features are available even if you don’t have an iPhone, BlackBerry or Android. In many cases, all you need is mobile web on a cell phone. And if you don’t have that, you may access the ADT portal through a computer. So if you are traveling and staying in hotels all the time, you can take advantage of the WiFi at the hotel and use your own computer to interact with your home’s security status. Many Hotels have ‘business centers’ where computers are available for use by the guests.
For just a few dollars more, many of today’s alarm customers are taking advantage of this opportunity. As one customer of mine put it, “it’s a lot better value for your money than just interfacing with a keypad hanging on the wall”.
