Today there are many ways to connect to security devices at your home and business, many are push notifications telling you of a abnormal condition? What happens when your video camera contacts you and you see an intruder inside your property? What happens when your Nest smoke detector notifies you of smoke in your home? What happens when you get a water or temperature alarm?
911 will not work when you are away from your property. Take a minute and add emergency phone numbers in your contacts and practice making those calls while you keep the device open on your phone. ie; Your Ring doorbell contacts you and there is someone trying to gain entry to your home or removing packages from your porch? Practice making a speed call to the non emergency police dispatch while you are watching your porch.
Today's technology makes notifications instant, your response needs to maintain that efficiency when seconds will count.
