With changes in technology come changes in lifestyles. To meet these changes, Honeywell has developed Total Connect, an exciting suite of communication systems to provide homeowners and businesses with advanced, interactive security monitoring.
Total Connect lets you utilize the Internet, PDAs, cell phones and other web-enabled devices to control your security system, receive information remotely and much more. Total Connect’s remote keypad feature works just like a security system keypad — letting you access and operate your system remotely whether you’re at home, across the street or across the country.
What You Can Do
Remote System Control
You control the system and receive information through any text messaging device such as a cell phone or PDA. This service allows you to:
- Request system status
- Arm or disarm
- Bypass specific zones
- Control outputs
Total Connect Virtual Keypad
Total Connect’s Virtual Keypad lets you control your security system from almost anywhere via a virtual keypad using any web browser on a PC, or via SMS on a PDA or cell phone. It’s easy to use, because the virtual keypad functions the same way as a standard keypad.
Notification of System Events
This highly customizable service will provide reports via email to any capable device, even cell phones. In addition to system status, you can be notified of activity in various areas of your home or business, including:
- Being notified of activity in various areas of your home (e.g. when doors have been opened or closed, when the security system has been armed or disarmed, when a safe or liquor cabinet has been opened).
- Receiving email notification regarding activity in various areas of your business to ensure safety or prevent unauthorized access (e.g. learn when gas and water valves have been turned on or off or if a door has been propped open).
Video Notification of System Events
Can you imagine being able to see what’s going on in your home or business from anywhere, anytime? Whether you are a business owner on vacation but still need to “mind the store,” the working parent who wants to keep an eye on the babysitter, or the adult child that wants to check up on Grandma and Grandpa in another city – the possibilities are endless!
Video notification is accomplished by adding cameras to your security system. A picture or series of pictures can be sent to a PDA, cell phone or email address upon the occurrence of a system event. This same video notification can take place for a pre-programmed non-critical event such as when your child has arrived home safely from school.
How You Can Get It
Whether it’s for your home or business, you can rest assured that you’ll always be aware of what’s happening on your property no matter where you are. Total Connect makes it easy to control your security system and receive information remotely. Why not call PSI and start enjoying the benefits of Total Connect today.
