Around 15 years ago, I ran into a salesman who was going door-to-door in my neighborhood to let all of us know about a sales promotion on their alarms. It was a great promotion, so my husband and I had them install an alarm system in our home. We loved it. Just recently, I learned that they now have something called ADT Pulse that allows you to control your alarm from your own cell phone. So, we called the same company this week to get it, and we both love it.
There have been a number of times when I arrived at work in the past and realized that I forgot to turn the alarm on before leaving the house. My husband has done the same thing. We have a lot of family heirlooms that we don’t want to lose, so we do our best to try to remember. However, when you’re in a hurry, sometimes things slip out of your thoughts. With the new ADT Pulse system, I can turn my alarm on and monitor my house with the touch of a button from my phone. Years ago, there was even a time when we left for a vacation and worried about whether we’d set our alarm. It was too late to do anything about it since we were already in another state, but now that will never happen again.
I really feel a peace of mind having the ability to check in on our home from wherever we are. If anyone ever breaks in, we will get alert messages. I can then take a quick peek to see what is going on and even see what my dogs are doing. This is true of vacation time as well, I can check in on our pets when we’re goine to see they how they are doing and make sure that the dog walker is coming by at the times that she promises to be there to let the dogs out, walk them and feed them.
