It is storm season again. With Tropical Storm Barry bearing down on the Louisiana coast, people are bracing for impact. Hurricanes, Tropical Storms and Typhoons can be devastating to coastal communities, but we typically have time to prepare for these types of storms. This longer forecast helps us know in advance whether or not to hunker down, or get out of town.
With other severe weather events, you may not know how bad the forecast is until it's too late. A pop-up thunderstorm can bring flooding, downed trees and even generate tornadoes in some neighborhoods with very 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.
We have examples of customers throughout the US getting these emergency alerts when Emergency Tornado Warnings are issued. The Alarm.com Severe Weather alert can warn users of the potential for powerful tornados. This alert can give your family time to take shelter (in a bathroom, secure area, or storm shelter) before a tornado hits. This warning can actually help to save your life!
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.
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.
