Dealing w Home Security Remotely
My internet/tv/security are on seasonal hold. My security system has been telling me daily via email that it is armed. When I tried to access it via the phone app (on the Verizon system), I was notified that the touchpad is not connected to wi-fi. So, what do I really have for security? If there is a penetration of the system will the alarm go off? Will Comcast be notified? Will I be notified (via the phone app OR email)? Not clear to me. I assume that if I operated the touchpad manually, the system will disarm. And now I infer that I cannot remotely disarm the system.
Why is it so difficult to get what I need? I guess what I need is the internet degraded to the minimum to operate the security system for six months...and the tv on seasonal suspension (I do not want to move the boxes). Is that an option? If so, it was not ever presented to me as one.
Any advice would be appreciated.
