How to keep elderly parents safe with home security systems.

Your parents made sure you were safe when you were a child, and now it's time for you to ensure they are safe. Home security systems can be an important tool for protecting elderly parents. Here are a few ways the Ooma home security system can help you keep your parents safe: 

Remote 911: This feature allows you to call 911 from anywhere as if you were at home. First responders will automatically be dispatched to your parents at your home address in the event of an emergency, whether you are across town at the office or across the ocean on vacation. 

Instant alerts: With the Ooma Smart Security app, you get real-time alerts on your supported iOS (Apple) or Android device, so you can check on your home's status 24/7 from anywhere. 

Automatic arming and disarming: The Ooma Smart Security system automatically arms and disarms your home based on your GPS location. This way, you never need to remember to turn on your home security system while you are away and your parents are home.
