The holiday season is coming to an end for many of us. After an absence of a few days or several weeks, it is time to return home and the least we can demand is that our home be in the same condition as when we left it. For this reason, the security of the house in case of absence is an aspect not to be taken lightly. Numerous incidents can occur while you are quietly enjoying your trip in France or abroad. Today, there are effective solutions to protect your property and leave on holiday with peace of mind. At the top of the list, there is thehouse alarm with remote monitoring. How does this system work? What are its advantages? It is time to review the subject.

The importance of protecting the house when going on holiday

During the summer months, a large number of households go on holiday. Many people also go away during the All Saints' Day, the Christmas holidays, during the winter and in the spring. While it is recognized that during the summer season burglaries increase, the ideal is to protect one's home throughout the year. While homeowners enjoy their holidays, they often leave their homes unattended with the shutters closed. This is an ideal opportunity for malicious people to commit a crime and steal property, especially valuable property.

Living in the city increases the risk of burglary, but homes in more rural areas should not be overlooked as they are also attractive to prowlers. To counter the risks of intrusion into the home, remote home surveillance is the best solution. Not only is this system a deterrent to thieves, but it also allows you toalert the police via a dedicated line if necessary!

How does a home alarm with remote monitoring work?

When opting for a home alarm with remote monitoring, an alarm system is first installed in the home by professionals in the sector. The system is connected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to a monitoring center where trained security agents operate. Often, the operators have several monitoring centres in order to ensure a relay. As soon as an alarm is triggered, the professionals have access to the images of the house and can therefore intervene accordingly!

With remote home monitoring, and in case of intrusion by burglars, an alarm is triggered. This can have the effect of initially dissuading the person from entering the house. But if the person does enter the house, the surveillance cameras record a series of photos and video sequences. These are then sent to the surveillance centre's agent, who analyses them and removes any doubts by asking for the password and verifying it by voice and image. In the event of a proven burglary, the agent quickly notifies the police for a rapid intervention on site.

What are the advantages of remote home monitoring?

The home alarm with remote monitoring is more advantageous than the traditional alarm system anti-intrusion and video surveillance. Indeed, if the intruder alarm allows to be warned in case of entry of burglars in the home, it is not possible to intervene quickly on the spot, especially when you are on vacation hundreds or even thousands of miles away. Video surveillance is not very practical either, as you have to log on regularly to monitor what is happening at home, and on holiday you often have many other things to do.

Remote home surveillance is therefore the most effective solution, since in the event of a problem, identification and possible recourse to the police are managed by a third party, an expert in security. Remember that the house is then placed under permanent surveillance throughout the absence!

In addition, the house alarm with remote monitoring also offers the possibility of alerting the monitoring center in case of domestic accident or fire. There too, the professional will be able to act accordingly and proceed if necessary to an intervention of the fire brigade
