Non-Emergency Events

Know what is going on in your home, even when you’re not there.

Alarm systems have always been about blaring sirens, monitoring stations, and physical home protection. What about the little things? The things that don’t need a phone call from the monitoring station, or a visit from the police. Burns & McBride has a way for you to stay on top of things that are going on in your home, even when you’re not home with our Non-Emergency events notifications.

How can I use these notifications?

Lets say that you have a liquor cabinet in your house that you don’t want your children getting into. You can put a sensor on that cabinet (perhaps a recessed sensor) and whenever that cabinet is opened you will get a text message saying what has happened. Then you can call and ask Johnny what exactly he is doing with that bottle.

Or how about if the garage door was left open? With a tilt sensor, you could receive a message.

Or maybe you have an elderly parent that is not quite ready to give up their independent lifestyle, and you want to check up on them without being obtrusive. We can install a motion sensor in the living room, and set a notification to be sent to your phone if nothing moves in front of that motion sensor by say, 9 am. Maybe Mom is just sleeping late, or maybe she has fallen. If nothing passes in front of the sensor you will get a text message telling you that you should give Mom a call and see if she is okay.

What a great way to protect yourself and those whom you love.
