Benefits of Connecting Your Security System to Your Smartphone

Originally posted on 19 December 2022

You don’t spend the entirety of your day at home, so it’s common to be concerned about what’s happening around your property while you’re away. Whether you have kids at home or valuables, you want to protect the people you care about most and the things that matter to you. Security camera installation is the first step to getting visibility of your property. But remote access to your home security cameras and alarm systems from your smartphone increases your control, no matter where you are. 

At Engineered Alarm Solutions, we help property owners across the Greater Toronto Area find the most robust security solutions for their needs and concerns, from security systems to installation. To learn how remote access to your home security cameras and your entire security system can benefit you, read on. 

Features You Can Access From a Smartphone

With modern security technology, there are many aspects of your security system that can be accessed and controlled from your smartphone or mobile device (tablet, laptop etc.). Some of these features include home security cameras, intercom communication, alarm functionality, and home automation. 

On-Demand Monitoring

By including remote mobile access with your security camera installation, you will have on-demand access to real-time and retrospective views and activity around your property to put your mind at ease and make adjustments as necessary. While it may be beneficial to look back at recordings of your property from your home security cameras, when you’re away, you may want a live view of your property, whether it’s to keep an eye on your children, your pets, or the status of your belongings. Real-time viewing allows you to respond to the current happenings around your property no matter where you are, whether you’re travelling or down the street. 

Automatic Notifications

When there are signs of trouble around your home detected by your security cameras, alarm systems, or even geo-fence technology, like fires, floods, or break-in attempts, advanced security systems send notifications directly to your phone, making you immediately aware and able to take action. But when you choose Engineered Alarm Solutions for your security system and security camera installation, these notifications are sent to the live monitoring station, immediately dispatching the appropriate first responders to minimize damage and trouble, even if you can’t get home first. 

Security While Asleep

At some point, everyone must go to sleep. Unfortunately, this is when many burglaries or accidents happen. When your phone is connected to your security system, you can get immediate alerts when signs of trouble are detected, no matter where you are located no matter if it is your residence, business or cottage enabling you to respond faster. When any of your alarms, be it your door/window sensors, motion detectors, glass break sensors, flood, smoke, or carbon monoxide monitors, are triggered, notifications will also be sent to your phone, waking you from your sleep, so you can react promptly, which can help when you can’t hear the alarm itself.

A Great Job! to the team at Engineered Alarm Solutions for the work performed at my home. From top management to the installers, the team delivered an efficient and professional service. The installers were on time, left the grounds spotless and provided all the support necessary to operate the system. Management provided recommendations that were spot on, and I very much appreciated the honesty and knowledge provided, can't get much better than that.

We are religious sisters and about two years ago we needed to protect our home because our neighbourhood is not very safe. We leave in a big house with too many windows and doors. The Priest from our Church recommended us to call Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) because they have done the security systems at the Church. We called EAS for an estimate. They came to check our home and explained to us all the options we had and provided an estimate. We also had other estimate from a different...


After moving into a new home, we needed a reliable security system to keep our family safe. We contacted Gabriel for a full alarm system, home automation, and security cameras. He met with us in person to ensure we understood the services and how everything worked. As an engineer by trade, Gabriel gave us comfort in his expertise and superior knowledge in the field. No sales pitch, just honest work and guidance on how to best protect our home. We now have a top of the line system, apps installed...


From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

We recommended him to another business a few units down from us who required an even more complex security system and have heard only good things since then. Would definitely recommend using their...

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home. When we purchased the home, it came with a pre-existing security system that was frustrating to use, had recurrent false alarm issues, and we needed to find a new company to install a reliable and better quality system. Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
