Managing your Alarm System Remotely
Everyone knows this feeling—you’re driving downtown, ready for nice night out at a good restaurant and then a romantic stroll along the waterfront, when it hits you: ‘Did I remember to lock the door? The garage?’ But instead of having to turn around and speed back, you simply pull out your phone and open the Honeywell Total Connect Remove Service app, make sure all the doors are locked, and even turn on a couple of lights so people will think someone is home.
Modern security systems are making it easier and easier to protect and run your house, even when you’re not there. From turning on the alarm system to watching real time video of what’s happening around your home, the application can take care of it all.
It’s all part of the home automation package that Scan-Tech Alarm Systems Ltd. provides. Honeywell’s LYNX Touch system has made it so easy for you to control your home, even if you’re nowhere near it. You’re on vacation and you realize that you forgot to feed the fish, so you ask your neighbour to go over and take care of it. You can watch them walk up to your front door through your phone. Then you can unlock the door and disable the security system. They feed your fish, leave, and you lock everything again and rearm the system. And you do all of this while lying on the beach.
Or just imagine this: you’re still on that date, on a cold winter night in Saskatoon or Prince Albert. You check your Honeywell app to see what the traffic looks like before you start driving. Then you turn on the fireplace to make sure your home is nice and toasty-warm. As you pull up to the driveway, you disable the security system so you don’t have to rush in and frantically punch in those four numbers you sometimes forget.
How much easier can it get?
