The wireless remote, or key fob, for your home security system arms and disarms the security system in your home. It also includes a panic button that sounds an alarm, which in turn causes the monitoring company to be notified that a security breach or other home emergency is in progress.
But they’re not just for when you exit and enter your home. Seconds count in emergency situations, and having a wireless key fob nearby while you’re inside your home can make a big difference for you and your family.
Placing your wireless remote on your nightstand, as an example, allows you to arm the security system when you go to bed each night, ensuring your family and house are protected while everyone sleeps.
Most home security systems allow for multiple fobs to be programmed into the system, up to eight in many instances. In addition to being able to keep them in handy places around your home, you’ll be able to provide them to certain individuals, including older children, an elderly family member, or a trusted neighbour, all with the convenience of not having to divulge the pass code for your system.
