Technology offers us all so many conveniences that one could only have dreamed about even just a few years ago. If you think about how far it all has progressed in such a short time, it really is mind boggling. The iPhone has only been around about 10 years! That’s crazy, it seems like it’s been around my entire life at times. Same with all that can be seen and done on the internet. I mean, I barely write any checks anymore, for example. The influence of technology and all of those benefits has really become deeply engrained into so much of our lives. The same clearly applies to our homes. That’s why I’m so pleased to share my thoughts with you in partnership with MONI Smart Security (MONI).
Our homes are our sanctuary and our safe place. It’s a place of comfort, joy, and life. It’s fantastic that there are ways to make it as good as it can be. There’s just so much that’s offered to us today to make our home lives just that much better. Apps and smartphones can virtually control the entire house and it’s only getting better and better. More and more seems to come online every day. This is definitely true with regard to protecting our home and our families. In my opinion, this is one of the best parts about the advancement of tech in the home. Attitudes for many really seem to change once you have that mortgage, and that spouse, and those kids. Everything revolves around that, and for good reason. My family and home are my life. It’s why I get up in the morning, so keeping everyone safe is top of mind all the time.
Since we bought our current home in 2006, we have had a security system in place. It has been monitored professionally since then as well. It’s offers me a tremendous sense of security when we are away or when I’m not at home with them. When away, the last thing I want to fret about is the security of my home. Having worry-free time away from home is so important. It’s all part of home safety 101. Living in an urban or dense suburban area (like I do) simply requires a number of safety strategies and associated tools that are key to maintaining that feeling that your family is well protected. It’s just something, much like health and life insurance, that I have to have for me and for my family. And I want the best.
While my current system is a more traditional (read old-fashioned) wired system, I’m always on the hunt for the latest and the greatest. Things change, and I want to make sure I change when it makes sense, too. There are always faster and more efficient ways to do things, right? So when I came across the amazing news that MONI professional home monitoring partnered up with Nest Secure, I had to check it out. I have to say, I’m really glad I did.
The differences with my new home security system are huge for me. MONI delivers unmatched speed and personalization in home security through the integration of the latest smart technology with their award-winning monitoring capabilities. MONI has achieved many milestones in its nearly 25 years – including the ability to connect with consumers up to 10x faster than other companies through its world-class monitoring system.
The customer service is also second-to-none. It’s a huge improvement from what I’ve experienced in the past. Their responsiveness to alerts is lightning fast and the customer service reps are always very professional and courteous. It’s just a pleasure to deal with them. I mean, MONI has 1,200+ team members based in the U.S. to help customers on the phone or through online chat – at any time day or night. It’s like having an army of people watching over your house at all times! Their 24/7 monitoring capabilities allow them to be trusted advisors and providers, and as a result of their over 1 million customers feel more secure every day. I feel safer with MONI, because I am…and it’s awesome.
Aside from the amazing performance and service MONI offers, I love that MONI is really listening and responding to its customers. You can see it clearly in their high customer satisfaction rankings, but also in their ability to adapt and offer new and exciting options in home and life security. This is why they have teamed up with Nest Secure and other amazing home security products. People want choices in how they protect their families and homes, and MONI is there to help with so many of them.
Setting up my Nest Secure was so easy, it was almost hard to believe. The functionality of the system and the responsiveness of the app paired with MONI professional monitoring is really amazing to experience. From the moment I opened up the box, set up my Nest Secure, and activated MONI monitoring, it’s been smooth sailing. So easy and such a great feeling of security. From the immediate app alerts to the feeling of freedom, MONI’s professional monitoring is a necessary addition to the home to ensure a safe home filled with more family moments together.
I have to say one important thing, though. I know that there are some people that set up their security systems and MIY (Monitor It Yourself) it. This is fine and certainly more possible with today’s technology than in the past (when it was literally impossible), I just don’t feel that it’s the ideal way to secure my home and family. Self-monitoring is great, and you would save the money and have more control, but it’s not as efficient as professional monitoring. Things happen and sometimes you just can’t be as responsive as you’d like. With many smart home systems, you can receive notifications of a situation in your home, but you’re responsible to check your notifications promptly and contact the authorities yourself if needed. Plus, there are hinderances to MIY, like calling 911 yourself will geo target where you are at the time, not necessarily where your home is. With MONI, that burden is off you. Professional monitoring is the true way to properly take advantage of that home security system.
While having a home security system may seem very foreign to some, I think it’s just a part of life today, especially when you have a family and home to think about. MONI offers an extra level of comfort for me and my family, and it’s something that I can’t do without. I think if you give it a shot, you will agree.
