Total connect lets you interact with your security system from anywhere using an internet enabled computer, smart phone or tablet.
One of the handiest features of Total Connect is the virtual keypad which can be used just like the real keypad in your home. Realize when you are halfway to work that you forgot to set your system? Total Connect can access your keypad through an encrypted connection to your system, so you can arm it without having to return. When you cannot be home, having the virtual keypad also makes it possible to allow people (such as babysitters or housekeepers) in your home without giving them your security code. Or, use it to verify that the kids armed the system when they came home from school. You can also use Total Connect services to control your thermostat, lights or locks.
Event Notification Text/Email
With Total Connect, you can set up texting and/or emailing when certain events occur in your home. You can choose to receive notification when there is a power failure, low battery or arm/disarm of the system. Used in conjunction with heat, temperature or water sensors, Total Connect can alert you to potential problems like floods, temperature changes or fire. You can even set up notification for asset protection devices used on liquor, medicine or gun cabinets to warn you when they are opened. Easy-to-use and highly customizable, Total Connect can be used to view your system's logs, receive notifications and has a virtual keypad for remotely controlling your alarm.
Total connect video
With the addition of cameras, Total Connect can be even more useful in securing your home. You can view live, streaming video from Total Connect cameras, ideal for keeping an eye on kids, pets, and elderly or ill family members. Log in to see if that package you've been waiting for has arrived or make sure the kids are doing their homework. You can set up notification to receive email of video clips and still shots of events at home. If you know your elderly mother is usually up and around by 9 am, you can receive a video of her when she passes by the camera in her hallway.
