Home Security System and Smartphone Integration

American Alarm Corporation has been in the Atlanta security system business since 1995, and through the years we have been lucky enough to witness some pretty spectacular technological improvements in home security. One of the most important changes has been the advent of smartphone technology, allowing property owners to monitor and control their security systems when they are at work, running errands or out of town.

Honeywell Ademco systems, including the VISTA-20SE and the VISTA-30PSE, grant the user a great deal of flexibility in terms of how the system can be controlled while you are away from your home. They offer the ability to control the system from any mobile phone, including any Android or Apple iOS smartphone. This is a great feature for anyone who relies on their mobile phone at home instead of a landline.

Using Honeywell’s Total Connect Remote Services, an optional add-on to any Ademco unit, the VISTA systems can be armed and disabled via mobile phone, which could come in handy if you’re in a hurry and forget to arm the system before heading out. An Ademco system can also be programmed to either email or send a text message to the owner whenever it detects an opening, closing, extreme change in temperature or broken windows. This can be extremely useful if you want to be notified when your children have returned home while you’re at work. You can even program your VISTA to record video when it detects a break-in.

We want owners of Atlanta home security systems to be the primary beneficiaries of these technological advances. If you would like to learn more about how your mobile device can be better integrated into your existing home security system, call us at (770) 645-0061 today.
