Smart Home Security
A safe and secure home for your family needs to be smart enough to alert you when you’re home or away. Preview streaming video from security cameras right on your touch screen display or iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device. At home in Des Moines, IA, use your touch screen as a video intercom system so you can see who's at the door. While you're away, disarm alarm systems to let in the housekeeper or babysitter, then activate it as soon as they leave. Integrate with a lighting control system so lights turn on if an intrusion is detected or a dim pathway is lit when the smoke alarm is triggered.
With high-definition surveillance cameras in and around your home, you can monitor activities real-time whether you’re in the house or halfway around the globe. Receive live video streams of entrances to see who’s at the door, interior areas, the perimeter, or even check on the kids playing in the pool all from the same touch screen that controls your home entertainment system or from your smart mobile device. Camera types include pan-tilt-zoom, covert, long-range, nanny cams, and more. Activity is documented on a digital recorder so you can play back at your convenience.
Entry Systems / Access Control
Our entry systems can be standalone or integrated into your phone system so that when someone rings the doorbell, your phone rings. You can pick up to speak to the visitor, or press a button to open the gate. Add video capability, and you can see who’s there. Or program your doorbell to pause the music system or provide notification on your TV so you never miss a ring. Access can be controlled with magnetic door locks, biometric fingerprint access, and perimeter barriers such as gate control. Together, we can customize a solution to your specific needs.
Access your home security system anytime, anywhere! No more running back home to make sure a door is locked, instead connect remotely from your Apple® or Android device to arm/disarm, check status, change codes, view surveillance, and more. We can route your security system through a central monitoring system alerting you via email or text message of events that you set. Get notified if the temperature in your wine cellar exceeds a certain level, or there’s a water leak. If integrated with your smart home control system, you can adjust the temperature or shut-off the water remotely.
Add layers of protection for your home from environmental conditions such as water leaks, temperature, and humidity. Water sensors placed by the sump pump, washing machine and beneath sinks can signal a security system whenever they detect moisture so you’ll know if your laundry room is flooding while you’re at work. If it’s integrated to a smart home control system your water supply can automatically turn off to prevent major damage. Sensors for temperature and humidity can detect and communicate other potentially harmful conditions such as when your furnace goes out, especially helpful when traveling or for a second home.
Fire / Life Safety
Increase safety in your home for your family by tying smoke, heat and gas detectors into your security system. When your smoke alarm is integrated it ensures rapid response from the fire department or your HVAC system can turn off to prevent fueling a fire. Heat detectors are used to detect fires in areas that are naturally smoky or dusty, such as kitchens, garages, and basements. Protect your family’s well-being by monitoring carbon monoxide, natural gas and LP gas. An alarm system can also be connected to health-related sensors including panic pendants and fall detectors.
