Myfox Home Alarm and your community
If you’re the lucky owner of a Myfox Home Alarm system, it means you want to protect your home and the people who live in it. But they won’t be the only people concerned by your new watchdog. Who can access what? Let’s check out your new community.
Unlike competitor systems where the user (or users) you register all have the same rights, Myfox Home Alarm lets you attribute distinct rights to each person in your community.
Users inside the home
He or She enjoys all the rights and manages all the different user levels and their respective accesses.
Thanks to their fob and to the Kids function that we’re explaining here, children can only arm or disarm your Home Alarm.
You can give your guests the same rights as your children, on top of alert notifications (in case of intrusion, for instance), and access to cameras.
The community (users outside of your home)
Family and friends:
You can attribute to your family and friends a right that allows them to receive notifications but also give them access to the cameras, only and systematically in case of intrusion, of course.
You can allow your neighbors to receive notifications (they will the nearest to act in case of absence).
Choosing your community carefully is important! Why?
Defining your users and your community allows you to clarify the accesses to your home and to attribute to each one his or her fob, instead of a shared fob someone is bound to lose!
What’s more, when a problem is detected, several trusted people receive an alert, making dispelling doubts easier. Because they’re so close, neighbors can easily go check if it’s a false alert or not, and that’s even faster than a remote monitoring service! Community or remote monitoring, two very different services but just as important!
What about you, did you choose your community well?
