Armed and Ready

Manufacturers of security systems have started to offer apps (usually free) so you can press buttons on your iPhone to arm and disarm your system. Many apps also send instant alerts (sometimes with video attached) directly to your mobile device and allow you to review changes, like a tripped sensor.
