Security alarm system self-monitoring through your cell phone tutorial

In this video, I’ll show you how to set up your Eyez-on EVL4 internet module to communicate with your cell phone, tablet or computer.  With this unit you’ll be able to arm and disarm the system remotely from your device, as well as receive text and email notifications if there is an emergency or trouble condition on the system.

One thing to remember about this unit is that it needs to be plugged into an ethernet port on your router or switch.  That’s easier said than done sometimes.  You may be running into the problem that your security panel is downstairs, while your internet access is upstairs.  Here is a product that sends an internet connection through your home electrical wiring that may help.

You may find that if you have “network supervision” enabled, you will be getting notifications of connection drops with these units though.  If you find that these drops are happening all the time or for extended periods, you may have to find a more reliable way to get a cable from your panel to the router, even if you have to go outside the building with a conduit or outdoor cable.  I’d hate if there was an emergency and when the signal was supposed to go through to your phone, there was a network drop.

Here’s the video for the Eyez-on EVL4 set-up, let me know if you have any questions below.
