Smart Phone Home Security Might Not Be Secure

Posted: Updated:

Controlling your home security from your cell phone seems like a convenient way to keep your home safe, but experts, including the co-owner of Alarm Service, Inc., are now saying it could give thieves easier access to your home.

"I don't promote it at all. Its not all that secure. If someone gets your phone they can arm and disarm your system. One click of a button and your system is off. It brings a whole another area of security to the equation," says George Forsyth, co-owner of Alarm Service, Inc.

Forsyth says if you want the peace of mind that comes with a security system, a keypad is the safest way to go.

"Its always best to use a code on a keypad. It should be a pin that only you know and use to arm and disarm your system. That is the safest thing to use."

Forsyth adds that the correct type of alarm system can leave you with a feeling of protection.

"The number one thing we hear after we put a system in is how amazing it is that people have peace of mind. If we put a keypad in a bedroom where people can arm and disarm it before they go to bed, then they can roll over in the middle of the night and open one eye to see the green or red light. Then they can go right back to sleep knowing everything is alright."

Its always a good idea to do your research and make sure you are getting the best security system for your home.
