Home and Business Automation with Miami Security Systems

Posted by Omega Security on March 27, 2013

These days, security in Miami means more than simply a keypad and a few motion sensors. Home and business security systems continue to evolve as new technology becomes available. Home and business owners who use the Honeywell Total Connect system have the power to manage their electricity, heating and other aspects of their home and business systems at a touch of a button.

Home Automation

Turning off lights when not in use is one of the easiest ways to save money on electric bills. Children and teens, however, are notorious for leaving lights on and forgetting to lock doors before they leave the house. Miami security systems, like the Honeywell Total Connect home automation system, allows you to remotely lock doors and turn off lights others may have missed.

You can also regulate your heating and air conditioning units to keep your home at the temperature that is most comfortable for you. The Total Connect system can even remind you to clean and change air filters. A properly functioning furnace and air conditioner will last longer. It will also be more efficient, which saves you money on energy and repair bills.

Automated door locks, lighting and window shades provide the ultimate in security while you are away from home. Thieves look for signs of an empty home,and incorporating automated lighting is a good way to make your home look inhabited.

Omega Security in Miami can help you find the perfect programming options for your system. Program your lights to turn on when you disengage your security system, and you will never need to walk through a dark house again.

Business automation

At one time, a trusted employee would have a key and security code to a building. However, if that employee was ill or on vacation, the business owner needed to make other arrangements so employees could go to work. An automated business system can be programmed to lock and unlock doors at specific times. Automatically locking doors when a security system is engaged means your building is truly secure.

Some employees and customers may be tempted to adjust a thermostat. The Honeywell Total Connect system can lock your thermostat to keep your building at a constant and reasonable temperature. The system can also be programmed to turn down the heat or air conditioning at night when the building is empty, and then turn it on again during the day. There is no point in heating an empty building, and adjusting the temperature is a small task that may be easily overlooked before an employee leaves for the day. If you don’t want to program it for specific times of day, you can simply access your system through your smart phone or laptop and change it.

As a business owner, you know how important it is for prospective customers to see into your business during the day. However, at night, that visibility can be a liability. The Honeywell system can be used to program window shades that automatically lower when the security system is engaged. Automating the thermostat, locks, lights and window shades in your business allows your employees to focus on work instead of small details.

The Honeywell Total Connect is one of the most popular choices in Miami security systems. Depending on your needs, you can control the system by using either the wall-mounted keypad or remotely though any internet-enabled device.
