Upgrades are just a part of modern life; we upgrade our phones, our home décor, even our wardrobes, all in the pursuit of keeping up with the most updated amenities in life. Why would your home security system be any different? It shouldn’t be. Upgrading your home security system should happen several times over the life of the system, especially when new technology emerges and is adopted by the majority of users.
That’s the case with home control, which is technology that utilizes the power of your smartphone to take your home security to the next level. If you haven’t gotten on board with it yet and are content to keep your security system as-is, then you may soon be in the minority as more homeowners are discovering the simpler, safer lifestyle that home control offers.
Here’s a quick rundown of what incorporating home control into your security system can do.

Make You Aware of Intrusion from Anywhere
Your security system is already designed to trigger an audible alarm when someone intrudes in the home. But when you have home control, you can receive a mobile phone alert when it happens as well; after all, don’t you want to know if someone tries to break in your home while you’re at work? In this age of mobility and instantaneous action, the “old school” notification methods are quickly becoming outmoded and there’s no reason to stay behind.
Support Your Parenting Goals
Raising your kids is your job, but home control technology can support your parenting efforts to make part of that job easier. Here are some ways it does this:
- Sending you a notification when toddlers get too close to an area of the home that could be dangerous for them, such as a laundry room, garage or storage room
- Letting you know when teenagers venture into the liquor cabinet, gun cabinet, closet where gifts are being stored…any area you have made off limits
- Sending you “unexpected event” notifications, which can tell you if a child sneaks out in the middle of the night or comes home while he or she is supposed to be in school
Provide Additional Peace of Mind
A security system that includes home control will send you a mobile alert when your system detects high heat levels (fire), high water levels (flooding), or even a dangerous gas like carbon monoxide. In addition to knowing you will receive an alert if an intruder breaks in, knowing these dangerous conditions are covered can provide you incredible peace of mind. That’s what moving up to home control can do for you. If you’re interested in learning more, contact Park Security Systems.
