Alarm systems such as the Interlogix brand have really evolved. Today, systems can integrate with Smart Home systems or offer some automation on their own merit. We do recommend one app to control your entire house as opposed to many apps on your phones or tablets. Commonly used controls on stand-alone systems are for remote arming, special sensors to protect valuables, door locks and other entry points, etc. We avoid phone lines for communication, using a cell type radio signal instead for better reliability and security. Having a local company for questions or service is very important. The do-it-yourself systems being advertised bypass a trained installer. Why risk your safety on something you are not trained for?!
