ADT Pulse Mobile SecurityAt times, it's a crazy world out there and there is nothing more important than protecting your family. ADT Pulse is quickly becoming the standard in mobile home security and worth considering as a security solution for you and your loved ones. USA Today just did a nationwide story on home security which featured California Security Pro, an ADT Pulse customer and remote home technologies. The title read, "Light's on, no one's home, but it's secure... Keep watch from wherever you are." 

For years homeowners have been getting security systems to protect their homes and families from burglary, fire, carbon monoxide and medical emergencies. Twenty years ago, most security systems were hard wired burglar alarms and often were only local alarms without security monitoring service. Then wireless security systems became available so you could get a security system in an existing home without needlessly drilling holes throughout your home to pull wires. In the last 5 years, security systems with GSM cellular communication have become the standard as many homeowners no longer have traditional land line home phones. But the most popular new benefit of today's security technology is the ADT Interactive Services of ADT Pulse mobile security solutions.

ADT Pulse is mobile home security all in the palm of your hand!

Like the marriage vow of for better or worse till death do us part, mobile smart phones are here to stay. One of the better uses of mobile smart phone technology is the Interactive Services of ADT Pulse mobile security.

Did your kids get home from school, how is the handy man's work coming along and what is your dog up too? With an internet connection, check out live, secure video from your phone. Take a picture or record a short video clip of what is happening and text or email it. If there is ever an emergency at home check in immediately with the personal video monitoring service of ADT Pulse video. 

Busy all day and do not have time to check in with your ADT Pulse mobile video monitoring. Just set up your system to record 30 second video clips of alarm events or record a clip when anyone opens a door or arms/disarms your security system. You can then go back view the video latter or have the clip sent to you via text or email.

ADT Pulse video monitoring is also great when you are home. One of the most important safety measures at home is to not answer the door unless you can see who it is. Use your front door camera to always see who is there before any family member opens the door. Watch the kids playing in the back yard or keep an eye on the baby sleeping while you are cooking dinner. Get a few bookshelf cameras so you can move them around depending on what you want to see at the time. You may also add up to 10 total cameras to your ADT Pulse security system .

If you need recording 24 hours a day, you'll need to upgrade to a video surveillance system with a Digital Video Recorder. The ADT Pulse personal video monitoring is designed for secure, real time live video and recording of short video clips of device and alarm events.
