Most people think of monitored home alarms when they think of security. Which is why people usually default to that option. But others opted for self-monitoring home security.
In recent years, DIY home alarm systems have become more common, giving people a great sense of control with similar security benefits.
To fully understand what a monitored home alarm means, let’s look at what happens when a burglar breaks in;
Some burglars may cut phone and power lines or try to disable your home security system the old fashioned way by smashing it to bits. Or they use the delay from when a sensor is triggered to when its sent to the monitoring station. This won’t work.
GoKonnect’s home security uses a cellular and battery backup ion the event of a power outage and/or loss of broadband. You can also get a no-entry delay when you arm your system so your alarm triggered the instant a sensor is triggered. And if they try and break your security system, a signal will be sent to you that there is a communication error and the alarm will be triggered. This works because all our smart security devices are part of the same ecosystem and communicate together.
All of these aspects of monitored home alarms are important but today’s systems have more to offer. When it comes to DIY monitored alarm systems, you get all the benefits that we offer.
