Smart home security services
November 2018, Security Services & Risk Management, Products
SecureHome enables you to view the status of your home security, quickly arm or disarm your alarm system, and receive alerts using your smartphone, which acts as a keypad for the security system outside of the home.
SecureConnect has much of the same functionality as SecureHome, and offers a number of clear technological advancements. Essentially it turns a customer’s house into a smart home, offering a range of security features as well as the ability to turn off IoT devices such as pool-pumps, security lights and even the coffee machine.
With SecureConnect customers can view the status of their home security system, arm and disarm their alarm, switch and dim the lights, tap into your CCTV feed, detect movement, control the blinds, heating, air conditioning and so much more using their smartphone. Using geolocation technology, SecureConnect can even automatically arm the alarm when a customer is 5 km away from home.
These features not only provide convenience but also further enhance home security because it creates the illusion that someone is home. It also allows the customer to safely be notified when there is a problem and they can then see for themselves what that problem is. All signals are still prioritised and managed by the Fidelity ADT monitoring centre, but the power of knowing is in the hands of the customer.
