Safety & Security
Peace of Mind, Home or Away
Check in on things at home from wherever you are. Receive alerts when someone enters the house, the garage door is left open, or a leak is detected in the basement. Intelligent security puts peace of mind at your fingertips so you can rest assured that all is safe.
Your home is your castle and, as such, is probably the single largest investment in your life. It is both your refuge and your sanctuary. Where a moat and drawbridge afforded security and protection in ages past home automation today fulfills that role. Instead of rapacious hordes home automation systems offer protection from UV rays, exhorbitant electricity bills, heating bills, dark unwelcoming abodes, tedious repetitive light switches, and manual drapery and blinds.
Imagine your daily routine without home automation today. Getting ready to leave in the morning you have a plethora of tasks to perform. You have to remember to turn off the TV and/or radio. Additionally you must turn off lights in the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and foyer. The drapery and blinds must also be drawn to shield your walls, floors, and furniture from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays as well as unwanted heat. You may also want to adjust your home’s temperature settings to save energy while the house is unoccupied. Whew! I’m tired just outlining these daily steps. Now repeat these steps every day of your life because if you don’t your home may be too hot when you arrive home, your TV may have been entertaining and informing the ether, and your carefully chosen furnishings may have begun the slow bleaching effect resulting from the ultraviolet spectrum of the sun’s rays.
Would it not be better to simply enjoy your breakfast and press one AWAY button as you exit your home in the morning thereby setting in motion a daytime status setting for your home with drawn shades, lights off, TV off? Of course it would.
Systems from Control 4 and Crestron make this and so much more possible. Monitor your residence from anywhere in the world via your smartphone or tablet. Enable access to limited areas of your home for tradespeople with passcode protected entry systems. Not only will you control your home with ease but you will save money on items such as air-conditioning, heating, and electricity expenses.

ARM AND DISARM
As elegant as it is effortless, arm or disarm your security system—or even receive immediate emergency assistance—directly from an intuitive user interface on a touchscreen, TV or mobile device. And on your way out, simply press “Away” to set the alarm, engage the cameras and lock all doors.
LOCKS AND ALERTS
Easily view and manage locks, or grant or remove access to the house. Receive notification the moment that something isn’t right, such as a pipe leaking in the basement or the garage door left open. Monitor the state of your home, no matter how far away you are, by putting the control in your own hands.
A Mockupancy™ scene will alternate lights and shades—and even televisions—in a random fashion so that your home simulates your family’s activities to make it appear occupied while you’re away, providing additional security and added peace of mind.
Using the Control4® App, you can easily monitor cameras that are placed inside or outside of your house. Remotely view live security camera footage straight from your mobile device, and take command of your home, whether you are downstairs or downtown.
