Keep Your Home and Kids Secure with Remote Video Monitoring

remote video monitoring

While your kids head back to school, make sure your home is secure for them to come back to and have a peace of mind knowing they are safe inside when they return. We provide various at-home security options that are all accessible from your smartphone, tablet or any web device. With live HD video, monitor the inside or outside of your home and turn your home’s security system off and on as needed. Here are some advantages of remote video monitoring:

  1. Keep the bad guys away: Outdoor security cameras help detect burglars as most thieves scope out the home before they rob it. If they spot your security camera, they will probably think twice about breaking in. This keeps your family and pets inside safe, as well as your belongings and prevents you from being a victim of crime.
  2. Assist police: If a break-in does occur, your security camera will be able to show police what happened, including a description of the intruder. This can help them gather the information needed to locate the thief and maybe even retrieve your stolen items.
  3. Monitor your kids: When your kids return home from school, you will be able to see when they have made it back safely. You can also have a second set of eyes on them if your younger kids are being watched by a teenage babysitter. Being able to check in will ease your sense of worry and allow you to get your work done so you can return home yourself.
  4. Check in on your pets: Now that your kids are off to school for the day and will not be able to tend to your family pets, you can keep an eye on them to make sure they are not getting themselves into any trouble. If something does happen to your belongings, you will be able to see the cause of it and implement preventable actions when you get home, ensuring your animals (and your furniture) are safe. Also, older pets that may need that extra attention during the day can be watched over as well.

The Myth of Local Monitoring



The Myth of Local Monitoring…Having a reliable monitoring service is the heart and soul of your home security system.  You want a monitoring network that provides you with reliable, quick and accurate responses to your alarm system. 

Some people believe local monitoring is better.  It’s a nice sales pitch.  It’s also a myth that local monitoring is better.  It’s not the location of the monitoring service; it’s the quality of the monitoring operations services that makes the difference.

Monitoring Expertise

At Protection Concepts we use Criticom Monitoring Services (CMS) for our monitoring services.  CMS is the largest alarm monitoring company in the United States.  It works with over 4000 alarm companies and 900,000 customers.  Monitoring is their expertise.

Monitoring Training

Before a CMS monitoring professional can begin working, they receive weeks of intensive training.  They are tested, retested and must be certified before they can sit behind a desk to monitor your alarm system.

Monitoring Technology

As a national provider of monitoring services, CMS employs the leading edge technology from UTC, AT&T®, Verizon®, Honeywell® and others.

Monitoring Services 

Whether you have monitoring services responding to fire or security issues; Personal Emergency Response Systems; two way voice or remote video, you get prompt and courteous responses.


Smaller, local monitoring services cannot provide the expertise, the technology nor the training that CMS brings to your home security system from Protection Concepts.  Don’t be fooled by the local label.

If you need more information give Protection Concepts a call.  Learn how a national monitoring service working with Protection Concepts alarms systems can make you and your family safer.
