Monitoring your office or home while on the go doesn’t require a computer, and it doesn’t even require a monthly contract through this Austin tech company that streamlines the security monitoring process.

Modern security for the home or office

Austin, Texas is home to many awesome startups and is the birthplace of many cool gadgets, apps, and technologies. Because of Austin’s reputation, there are even some companies who decide to move their headquarters to Austin, for example, BeHome247, a company that was originally founded in South Carolina but has since made Austin its home. One reason for BeHome247’s change is Austin’s culture and its focus on the new, hot moves in technology. And the company fits right in.

BeHome247 offers an alarm or security system for your home or business. But it isn’t an ordinary, everyday security system company; this one uses modern technological advances to its full advantage. For around $300, you can install the necessary security equipment, then for a monthly fee, and no contract, you can monitor your home or office from anywhere with internet access.

The system does more than just make sure your alarm system is set, you can control your lights and your thermostat and install cameras so you can visually check your home or office while you’re away. You can also download BeHome247’s smartphone app to monitor and control everything or access your account online from your computer or phone.

Video monitoring through your smartphone

You can set alerts to notify you if lights are left on during certain hours of the day, and those alerts are then archived and are stored in the cloud, for easy, convenient access anytime. If you choose to install cameras in your home or office, you can set it up as motion-activated during certain hours, so you won’t miss anything out of the ordinary. And as mentioned above, all data is stored in the easily accessible cloud.

You no longer have to worry about lights you’ve left on or if you’ll have an extreme electric bill from leaving your air conditioner on for an entire week. BeHome247 provides an innovative way to reduce unnecessary energy use and protect what you hold valuable. The company uses modern technology to give you more options when using and maintaining your security system. Their services allow you to have peace of mind, no matter if you’re just at work for the day or you’re across the country on a business trip.
