Introduction to Remote Services
Ever been away and wondered if you forgot to turn on the security system at home? There’s finally a solution for that. Remote services.
Ener-Tel’s remote service technology, called Total Connect, allows you to control your security system from anywhere by using any web-enabled device. This could mean from your computer at work, from your tablet at lunch, or from your smartphone at the gym. When you’re away, simple open up the Total Connect app (for phones and tablets) or navigate to the secure Total Connect website. Either way — you log in and can manage your security system online.
Why Use Total Connect remote services?
- Arm and disarm your security system from wherever you are. Our technology eliminates the, “Did I even set my alarm?” worry. Don’t just wonder about it — go take a look. The user-interface on both the Total Connect app and web-based program give you access to a virtual keypad. From there you can perform the same functions as if you were standing in front of your keypad at home.
- Receive text or email notifications of certain events. We’re all busy folks, and none of us is home 24/7. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have an idea of what’s happening at our home when we’re not there. With Total Connect, you can receive an alert whenever certain events occur. Many San Angelo parents use this function to tell when their children return home from school by receiving an alert whenever the front door is opened in the afternoon. But you aren’t limited to that single event. Your system can notify of action at doors, access gates, garage doors, or secured areas (like a liquor or medicine cabinet) to name a few.
- Keep an eye on your home with video surveillance. Pairing Total Connect remote services with your home’s video surveillance system means you can access footage of what’s going on in your home from anywhere. Don’t just wonder if the kids are doing their homework — see for yourself.
The ability to control you security system from wherever you are really is the next step in upgrading your system. Total Connect is the perfect solution for folks on the go.
