When we moved into our first house several years ago I had a long list of things to get set up for the house. The very first thing on my list was to get a security system involved. My husband travels a lot for work and I am extremely paranoid when it comes to being home alone. Now with our kids and also wanting to protect our possessions home security has somehow become even more important to me. So when we moved into our new home just back in August I learned about smart home security and how to really take advantage of technology to make our lives more secure while making security easier with Ooma Home Security!
–Easy to install. No more having to wait for someone else to install your system for you or for that matter dealing with the inconvenience of being home for someone else to install your system. Ooma is super easy to get it all installed and set up by yourself!
–Home Line. The first step of using Ooma is to set up the home phone service, which adds so much security to your home. I know, most people think home phones are a thing of the past, but they are actually really important in case your phone loses power, your cell phone service goes out, etc. Ooma connects to your internet to provide you with crystal clear nationwide calling for free! From there Ooma uses this phone service to provide instant access to emergency dispatcher in case of an emergency, which bypasses the need for expensive professional monitoring! In face if one of your sensors detects a door being opened or motion inside your home you can use Ooma to call 911 as if you were from home and they instantly will know your home address to know where to go!
–App. How cool is it that you can now manage your home security from an app on your phone? The Ooma app is super user friendly, you can set your security to different modes, and it’s free to use!
–Affordable. One of the best things about Ooma is the affordability of it! The app is totally free, the starter kit with the supplies you need to get your home set up is $149.99, and then the service is only $5.99 a month which is insane! The first 30 days are free to see if you like it and there is no contract so you might as well try it out!
