Bump. You definitely heard it this time. It’s 2:00AM and everyone should be asleep. Is your mind playing tricks, or is it an intruder? Or… a ghostly visitor?

We react in different ways to bumps in the night. 44% of us have quietly snuck out of bed to investigate a noise, while 41% have grabbed an object and gone to confront the real or imagined intruder, according to Alarm.com.

Not loving any of these solutions? Neither are we. Try these easy ways to restore your peace of mind instead.

  1. Investigate with indoor video

    If sneaking through your shadowy house with a golf club isn’t your thing, consider One SmartHome indoor video cameras instead.

    When a bump in the night wakes you up, pull up your One SmartHome app’s live video feeds for a room-by-room view. Our push-to-talk technology lets you broadcast your voice through the cameras, so you can use it to warn any ghosts away.

  2. Use smarter outdoor lighting

    What about the bump you just heard outside your window? Is it just a cat?

    With One SmartHome’s video analytics, you’d know. It’s a state-of-the-art home security technology that can spot the difference between people, animals, and vehicles. When your outdoor camera detects a person, your SmartHome can turn on your outside lights. If it detects your neighbours dog, it can keep the lights off. You also get custom video alerts telling you what type of visitor you have: human, or animal, There’s no ghost option…yet.

  3. Rest assured with professional security

    If an alarm is triggered, One SmartHome alerts a 24/7 monitoring station, where security professionals are on hand to dial 911 on your behalf. Even if you didn’t arm your system or secure your house, you can use your app’s Smart Signal buttons to alert the monitoring station at any time.

For total protection and peace of mind, there’s nothing smarter – especially at 2:00 AM.
