Energy Efficiency and Management

Keep your home comfortable and save energy — no wiring, patching or painting required. Acadian Total Security can professionally install connected thermostats in your home. The thermostats integrate seamlessly into your home security system, and learns from your activity and habits around your home to provide smarter automation.

Geofencing and GPS Technology

Geofence technology allows you to set a virtual perimeter around your home and use your smartphone to trigger specific actions to happen automatically. What does that mean?

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. If you have additional connected devices, you can set your actions to what works for your family.

As you arrive home in the afternoon, your phone will notify your security system that you’re re-entering the geofence. Automatically, the doors unlock, the lights turn on, pause your video monitoring, and provide the option of disarming the system.

You can even set geofence actions for all members of your family with a smartphone, giving limited controls to younger family members. Establish alerts and notifications so you can even keep track of when family members leave or come back.

Additionally, our systems can use your phone’s Bluetooth capability to detect your proximity to the door and disarm your system automatically.

Program Custom Activity Scenes

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. Scenes differ from geofencing in that it’s manually activated by the user, instead of acting based upon your phone’s GPS location.

Scenes can also be programmed to learn your activity habits and send you notifications when something out of the ordinary occurs.

Video Monitoring

Video surveillance is a strong security solution for homeowners.

Keep an eye on your children, babysitters, elderly relatives, pets, housekeepers, contractors and other service employees, package deliveries, and more.

Monitor vulnerable spots like front and back entrances, patios, pool areas, storage sheds and others.

When Acadian Total Security installs strategically placed video cameras and connects them to your home security system, you can view live, streaming video or receive real-time alerts of important events when they occur. Be notified as soon as our cameras detect motion.
