How Smart Home Security Protects You From Rain and Storms

Apr 21 2016
Our weather is mischievous. One minute you're lazing in the sun, the next, you're running for cover from a rainstorm that crept up out of nowhere.

Most of the time, a soaking is the worst that happens. However, thunderstorms can bring flooding, downed trees and even tornadoes to your neighborhood with little warning.

It's good to be prepared for storms and Alarm.com can help. Our smarter home security technology alerts you to danger and proactively protects your home when rain and storms strike.

Power Outages

Your home shouldn't lose its security just because it loses power. Alarm.com security systems have 24-hour battery backup for weather emergencies, and a dedicated cellular connection that can still signal for help no matter if your power, phone line and broadband are out. Your home stays secure and connected to your professional monitoring station until your power comes back.

Groundwater

When sudden storms cause the groundwater under your house to rise, the last thing you need is for your sump pump to stop working. But if it happens, Alarm.com lets you know immediately, enabling you to act quickly to minimize water damage. Our sump pump monitoring solution even helps you diagnose the problem, so you'll know whether to call a pro immediately, or check your circuit breaker first.

Tornadoes

One of our most dramatic Alarm.com reviews comes from Randy Norman, an Alarm.com user and service provider in central Arkansas. Two years ago, an Alarm.com Severe Weather alert warned him that a powerful tornado was bearing down on his house. The alert gave Randy and his family time to take shelter in a bathroom before the tornado hit. He credits the service with saving their lives.
