Customers will now be alerted by their Burns & McBride Smart, Safe Home security control panel when severe weather is headed their way
Burns & McBride Home Comfort and Alarm.com today announced the release of new Severe Weather Alerts that provides customers advanced warning of impending severe weather in their area. Alarm.com tracks severe weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service and provides real-time alerts to customers when a severe weather warning is issued near their home or business. Things like flooding, thunderstorm, high wind or hurricane warnings will be sent out to you automatically. The alerts are integrated with Alarm.com’s proven technology platform and are delivered directly to the customer’s security control panel giving them additional time to seek protection from dangerous weather conditions.
Alarm.com technology is standard on every Burns & McBride Smart, Safe Home system.
Since 2000, Alarm.com has been the leading provider of interactive security services for homes and businesses. This new capability extends beyond the traditional property line to alert people of external events which could put their families and belongings at risk. Many people are caught off-guard in severe weather situations because they are not listening to the radio or watching TV when a weather warning is issued. Alarm.com’s Severe Weather Alerts ensure that if a person is inside their home or business he or she will be forewarned when a tornado, tsunami or fire is headed their way.
“Our goal is to use innovative technology to improve the safety and security of people and their property. With Severe Weather Alerts we recognized a very valuable way to leverage our capability of having the security system in the home be connected with external events like severe weather conditions.” said Alarm.com CEO, Steve Trundle. “By developing new capabilities like Severe Weather Alerts we strive to give people more time to react and help reduce the number of people harmed during these unfortunate events.”
Burns & McBride, deployed Severe Weather Alerts throughout their customer base this spring and is including it on a standard feature on their Smart, Safe Home system.
Tom McBride of Burns & McBride, recognized the impact and benefit Severe Weather Alerts could have for Burns & McBride customers. “We worked closely with our partners, 2Gig Technology and Alarm.com on the release of this life saving feature to our customers. . This potentially life-saving feature is just one more way that we accomplish our company mission of protecting families.”
