If you still own an alarm system with clunky buttons, loud beeps and endless codes to memorize, then everything you know about home security is wrong. Today’s systems are much better managed with mobile apps, and homeowners are better off for it. Here’s why.
Apps are easy.
A well-made mobile app is easy to use and performs numerous functions. In the case of a home security app, it enables you to lock and unlock the keyless entry on your doors, arm and disarm your security system as needed, and even check on your live, real-time camera footage – all from the convenience of your smartphone. If you have a busy life with lots of responsibilities, this can be a major convenience.
Logins are a pain.
Everyone loves the convenience of doing personal business online, but nobody likes the painful ritual of logging into websites. We forget passwords, we change usernames, and we don’t have time for resets and captchas. But with a mobile app to manage your home security, logins are not part of the routine; all it takes is a simple tap on the app, and you’ve got an instant window into your home security: alarm, cameras and keyless entry locks. It’s all right in front of you.

Security needs vary.
A homeowner’s security needs will vary over time, and there should be an easy way to adapt the system to those needs. Leaving town? You’ll need to add an alarm code for your house sitter, and deactivate the code when you return home. Somebody moving out? A code may need to be changed to remove that person’s access. With a traditional home security system, it’s harder to accommodate those varying needs – but a mobile app for home security management, it’s easy.
These are some of the ways a mobile app makes managing home security easy. To learn more, call GuardMe Security. We will be glad to answer your questions.
