Interactive Home Security

Interactive Home Security in Houston and Surrounding Area

Automation technology lets you control range of Z-Wave devices, like lights, locks, doors, thermostats, appliances and cameras in your residence. With a Z-Wave® Interface Module added to your system, you can manage a wide variety of automation devices via the Virtual Keypad™ App on their mobile device or the Virtual Keypad Browser on any Internet-connected computer.

New Z-Wave devices and additional features are always on the way. You can control multiple functions with a single keypress. Imagine when you arm the system at night, it automatically locks the front door, adjusts interior lights, and sets back the thermostat. Or, imagine you are driving home from a ball game, and your security system automatically recognizes when your family is within a few miles of the house and prepares the house for their arrival: turns the lights on, cools the house down and opens the garage door. Call Us Now @281-738-3521 to make these imagination come true.

SHORTCUT CONTROLS (SINGLE COMMAND RESPONSE/ FUNCTION CONTROL)

Shortcut Controls

The “Favorites” function allows users to create, name, and assign multiple devices to respond to a single command. Up to 25 Z-Wave devices can be grouped together to create a Favorite. For example, the Favorite called “Movie Night” could lock the exterior doors, adjust the temperature, dim the lights in the family room to the desired level, and even warm up the popcorn machine.

The “Rooms” function enables users to take a photo of a room or area, then create “hotspots” on the photo that correspond to the Z-Wave devices available. To use the Rooms feature, simply select that room, then touch any hotspot to see the controls for that device.

A combination of up to 20 Favorites and Rooms can be saved.

CREATE STRONGER SECURITY WITH Z-WAVE AND CAMERAS

With “Favorite Actions”, you can connect to any Z-Wave modules to work in concert with specific panel functions. You can Arm or Disarm the system and simultaneously send commands to dozens of Z-Wave devices connected to lights, appliances, doors and the thermostat.

You can also disarm the system by simply entering a valid user code into the compatible Z- Wave Door Lock.

“Favorites” can be initiated on a schedule, or as an output based on a panel event. For example, different Favorites can be created to initiate upon a Fire Alarm, Late to Close, Alarm, and other events. Simply walking past a motion detector or opening a door could trigger an event.

Video capability, accessible through our Virtual Keypad App, give you the ability to look in on your Home via any mobile device. You can incorporate up to six IP cameras with interior and exterior camera options. You can take snapshots of video images via the app, or receive email notifications with video clips when camera recording has been initiated.

GEOFENCING

GEOFENCING

Geofencing allows users to create virtual fences around a residential or commercial facility using the location services (GPS) on their cell phone. The alarm system recognizes when someone passes through the fence, entering or leaving, and triggers a Favorite that can initiate an unlimited range of system functions.

Features:

  • Create up to 20 geofences.
  • Link geofences to more than one Favorite.
  • Activate different Favorites when users enter or exit specific geo-locations.
  • Program geofences based on the user’s current location or by entering an address on their cell phone.
  • Some possible applications
  • In residential systems upon approaching the home selected, interior and exterior lights turn on, the garage door opens, the entry door unlocks, and the thermostat adjusts to a comfortable level.
  • In residential and commercial systems on leaving the premises, the selected interior and exterior lights turn On/Off, thermostats set back, and entry doors lock. With the Smart Arming Reminder, if the user is the last person leaving the premises, the system will alert them if the alarm hasn’t been armed.
