Don’t stress over home security during the holidays.
Equipping your home with automation features and devices is a gift that keeps on giving. Your security panel becomes your smart home hub, connecting your:
- door locks
- Z-Wave devices
- video monitoring
- home audio, like SONOS speakers
And it’s all controlled from your smartphone, Apple Watch, or voice-enabled devices, like Amazon Alexa.
In addition, you can automate your home through geofences and scenes.
- Geofence technology allows you to set a virtual perimeter around your home and use your smartphone to trigger specific actions to happen automatically. When you leave for work in the morning, your phone, based on your GPS location, will notify your security system that you’ve exited the perimeter, or geofence. Your system will then turn off the lights, adjust the thermostat for energy use, lock the doors, and remind you to arm your system via your phone.
- With the ability to program custom scenes for your home, all you have to do is tap one button on your smartphone and everything will take care of itself. For example, set up an “Away” scene, and with one tap, your security system arms, your front door locks, your garage closes and your thermostat adjusts itself to save energy.
Home automation gives homeowners a greater sense of security and flexibility – and today, isn’t that one of the greatest gifts?
