We do believe that Elephant door is a great option for houses. It isn’t as expensive as other alarm solutions. Moreover, you can control and receive notification wherever you are to arm or disarm the alarm. This will be helpful if some relative or friend is going to visit your home while you are away. Furthermoe, it isn’t as intrusive as a camera that records everything.
