What’s a Smart Home Without a Smartphone?
Remotely arm/disarm your security system.
Ever forget to arm your home security system? No problem. You can easily arm or disarm your home automation system remotely using our smartphone app, or your web-enabled PC. This helps makes it easy to let people into your home and eliminates having spare keys floating around. You can also automate your system to send you email alerts when pre-selected events happen, such as a garage door opening, a medicine cabinet or gun case opening or an alarm being turned off.
Remote Door Locks
Help secure your home remotely with automatic electronic door locks.
Did you ever have to run home and let a service person into your house? Have you ever worried about all of the extra keys floating around for your home? Does everyone in the neighborhood know the code to your garage door keypad? You can help end all of these problems with home automation products that let you operate locks remotely using your smartphone, tablet or PC. Let the kids in or check to make sure you remembered to lock a door, and do it all remotely with the touch of a finger.
Monitor your home remotely with wireless security cameras.
Use your laptop or smartphone and stay connected to your kids, pets and property with a home automation system featuring video capabilities. See what is going on in real time. Check in on your sitter, know when your kids show up after school, check on the dog or check in on an elderly parent. You do not have to wonder what is going on—you can see it using your smartphone, tablet or PC.
Remotely control your smart lights indoors or out.
Working late? Do you dislike coming home to a dark house? No problem. With home automation as a part of your security system, you can turn lights on or off using your smartphone, tablet or PC. You can control outdoor lights, indoor lights, program lights, turn lights on and off and—well, you get the picture. Control your lighting from miles away or from across the room, it is all up to you.
Help manage energy costs with smart thermostats.
Energy costs hardly ever go down! Energy management will help you save you money on utility bills and help your family live a greener lifestyle. Controlling your thermostat is as easy as activating your home automation system. You can adjust and monitor your thermostat from anywhere, and that makes it easy to keep the heat down (or the air conditioning up) during the day, then turn it back to a more comfortable level before you head home.
Energy savings vary by household, occupancy and other environmental factors.
