Five Ways Proactively Protects Your Home

When something's wrong at home, your security system should do more than alert you. 

Smarter home security systems powered by stay one step ahead of the problem.'s cloud platform constantly keeps an eye out for what's happening around your home and automatically takes smart, proactive measures to keep things secure and to protect you and your family. 

From emergencies to everyday problems, here are five proactive protections that make a big difference. 

Emergency response when you need it 

When there's an emergency at your home, automatically alerts a 24-7 monitoring station through a dedicated cellular connection. The station's security personnel will quickly assess the situation and dispatch emergency responders if you need it. Whether it's a fire or a break-in—even if a burglar disables your security panel—your system ensures that help is on the way. 

Smart fire safety 

If there's a fire at your home, detects, alerts and responds to protect your family. Your alarm will sound, your smart lights will turn on to light your way out of the house, and your smart thermostat will shut off your HVAC to minimize the spread of smoke. In addition to alerting emergency services, also alerts your own emergency contacts such as family and neighbors to make them aware of the situation. 

Reminders when you forget also proactively prevents everyday problems from turning into bigger ones. For example, it reminds you if you leave your home unsecured by accident. Forget to close your garage door, lock your smart lock or arm your security system when you leave? 

You'll get a reminder that you can act on: a smartphone alert with a button that secures your home remotely with just one tap. 

Fast action on leaks also takes action against problems that traditional security systems can't touch. Most homes are vulnerable to water damage from leaks and burst pipes, which can quickly escalate if you're not there.'s smart water solution detects water leaks, alerts you immediately so you can take quick action.  With the addition of a water shut-off valve, can even turn your home's water supply off automatically to immediately stop damage. 

Proactive energy savings 

As well as your property, proactively protects your wallet by tackling energy waste. When you leave home, our Geo-Services feature sets back your smart thermostat into Away mode, saving energy without you doing a thing. With sensors throughout the home (thanks to your security system), an smart thermostat knows exactly when to heat and when to save, and can even respond to a door being left open
