Build your career without sacrificing your life.
The world we live in is becoming more fast-paced every single day. Constantly, we look for ways to make our daily activities quicker and simpler, so we can have more time to rest or work. Aside from scheduling, we look for mobility. The average person doesn’t stay home on a daily basis. With more transportation options than ever before, it seems as though we’re always on the go. Due to this change of pace, we look for ways to take care of our households while we’re not even in them. While we may mop the kitchen floors while sitting in the grocery store parking lot, we can monitor the home to be certain that everything is safe and secure. We can connect cameras to watch particular rooms or doorways, and we can even press a button and operate certain electronics within the home. Today, I want to share a new service with my readers that will bring them an entire other level of convenience.
BuzzMeHome is a cloud-based service that allows you to control your apartment building buzzer or intercom remotely through the use of access codes and the ability to connect to multiple phones. When you sign up, you will be given a personal BuzzMeHome number that you need to provide to your building manager – simple as that. Now your intercom is managed by the BuzzMeHome system. Log in to your dashboard to setup forwarding to any cell phone or landline and create access codes.
If you’re curious about whether or not this system will work for you, you’ll be happy to know that the system operates in all of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States. Unfortunately, hardwired buzzer systems cannot yet be connected to the BuzzMeHome service. However, the company is working on that little flaw and should have it fixed very soon. If you’re interested in being contacted when the hardwire systems are allowed, you can contact them through their website, and they will be more than happy to help you out. Still not sure whether this service will be compatible with your building’s buzzer system? Well, a simple way to figure out is by looking into whether or not your buzzer system can be forwarded to a mobile phone. If the answer is “yes”, then you’re good to go!
What is the coolest part of this service? You don’t need any devices. You don’t need to crowd up your phone with any additional apps. You don’t have to purchase any software or equipment, no will you have to set any up. The service is 100% cloud-based! Is it safe? Well, you’ve probably heard quite a bit of hype regarding cloud based services, but this service pays extra attention to safety. All data communication is transmitted through encrypted channels. Login information is encrypted. Your BuzzMeHome phone number will only accept calls coming from your apartment buzzer, and all other calls will be rejected. BuzzMeHome will send you a text message every time somebody enters a correct or incorrect access code at your apartment buzzer. So, you don’t have to worry about someone hacking into your service. You can keep an eye on your home from a distance, while feeling secure that you’re the only individual watching.
