Smart Home Summer Safety Tips

Posted · Add Comment

Summer break is an exciting time for our children, but it also creates an all new set of stress for parents who cannot be home with them during the day. If you have ever wondered how you can be in more than one place at a time to keep an eye on things, the answer is a Smart Home. 

By integrating Honeywell Total Connect into your security system, heating and cooling (HVAC), video monitoring/alerting, and by utilizing Honeywell Vehicle Tracking Services, you will provide yourself with a dynamic extra set of eyes.

Total Connect Video Monitoring is a system that permits you to keep an eye on your children any time they are home, or to watch nannies or babysitters as they interact with your children, conveniently via your smart phone. Moreover, you can be sure that your children have arrived home safely by using a video alert that goes to your smart phone and even see whether your teenage children and their guests are behaving responsibly. By placing cameras near hazardous or “off-limits” areas, like the pool, you can be alerted by your smartphone when motion is detected.

A Honeywell Connected Security System will update your antiquated system with a new “Smart” Security System that allows you to receive real time alerts about your system when it is being armed or disarmed. Honeywell Systems can also be integrated into video monitoring systems that send videos clip of your children entering and disarming the alarm to ensure they are alone and safe. If you have a designated cabinet for libations, a Honeywell sensor can trigger an alert on your smartphone to help ensure “adult beverages” stay “adult beverages.” Sensors can also be placed on pool gates so that notifications and video can be sent should these off-limit areas be entered.

In addition, you can integrate a Honeywell Intelligent Thermostat that allows you to check in and control the thermostat remotely. There are even Auto Change features and settings that will automatically change temperatures, intelligently learning your HVAC system to make those changes as energy efficient as possible. As a result, you are not required to manually change the thermostat to keep room temperatures consistent, no matter how much the temperature outside may vary.

Best of all, the Honeywell programmable thermostats can even save you up to 33% on annual heating and cooling costs.
