3 Reasons for a Wireless Security System

When shopping for a new Home Security System in Phoenix or Tuscon, you’re going to be faced with a lot of different companies, with a lot of different packages and offers for you for your home. When you’re shopping though, you should remember these 3 perks of having a Wireless Security System.

1. Remote Control

One of the MANY advantages of having a wireless security system in your home, is having the ability to check in on your home from anywhere you are. If you’re out with friends or stuck in the office for work, you can check your cameras with your handy smartphone! You also can check if you forgot on the lights, or would like to turn the lights on to keep intruders out. Have you had issues with the house being too hot or cold when you’re gone? Easy fix. Control your wireless thermostat with your smart phone.


2. Instant Notifications

Along with Remote Check-ins another amazing resource is to have notifications sent to your smartphone when an event happens in your house. Receive notifications any time a door is opened or unlocked, that way you can see who comes and goes, or have notifications sent if your home security system is armed or disarmed.


3. Programmable Features

This is one of our favorites here at Titan Alarm! Did you know that your lights can be programmed to turn on based off of what time it is? Do you have constant fights with your alarm clock in the morning? This is your solution, program your lights to automatically turn on at a certain time to kick you out of bed! Do you leave in a rush in the mornings? Set up a geo-fence that will trigger all the doors to lock, lights to turn off, and thermostat to turn up once you get a certain distance away on work days!

Access Control Maintenance

Keeping your business and facilities up and running in a safe way requires a lot of different factors. If you have access control needs, a system will allow you to control who is able to access buildings or different parts of that building, but without routine maintenance on your systems, they can quickly become obsolete.

With Titan Alarm’s Access Control Maintenance Plan we can help you keep it updated!

You can send in requests to add users, delete users and so much more and Titan Alarm will manage it for you!

What are “Geo-Services”?

Geo Services are an amazing piece of technology that can be highly utilized through Titan Alarm and Alarm.com.

It all begins with something called the “Geo-Fence”, the Geo-Fence is a ring around a specific location that you choose. Geo-Services will then use your location and track you using GPS built into your smart phone, if you ever enter or leave your Geo-Fence the rules that you have previously set up with each fence will be triggered and go to work.

What are the types of rules I can apply?

The following are some of the most frequently used rules and settings:

Thermostat Control: Leaving for the day? Want to save money on electric? Have your thermostat change temperatures when you’re not home or arriving home.
Arming Reminders: You can set it so when you leave your Geo-Fence, you’ll receive a reminder that your system wasn’t armed, if you did not arm it when you left.
Control Your Lights: Have your lights turn on or off whenever you leave or enter the geo-fence.
Stop or Start Video Recording: Have your cameras stop recording when you’re within the geo-fence and start when you leave, stopping any excess footage.

You can have multiple geo-fences, each with their own set of rules. You could leave your home’s geo-fence and receive an arming reminder, then enter the geo-fence surrounding your workplace and have your home’s automated thermostat adjust its temperature.

Geo-Services also allow multiple users and different rules and settings for each user.

How to Configure Geo-Services:

To use Geo-Services all you have to do is log into the Alarm.com app on your mobile device. Once logged in go to Options and choose “Geo-Services”.
Turn the option of Geo-Services to on.

*The GPS or Location Services on your phone must be turned on to use Geo-Services.

Now that your phone has Geo-Services enabled, you have to set up your rules.
To get you going on your own, here’s a step by step to set up a geo-fence and a location triggered event rule, so your lights will turn off when you leave.

1. Log into your account on titanalarm.net

2. Click on the Mobile tab, and then the Geo-Services link that’s below it

3. Create a geo-fence by clicking on the Add a Fence. Here you can specify the location of your geo-fence, change its name and radius (between 1-100 miles). Click Save when you’re finished

4. Click on the Light Automation Rules. To create a rule that automatically turns your lights off when exiting your geo-fence:


5.Click Save

It’s as easy as that.

Your Business’ Risks

Every different business has different problems that have different security needs.

For example, a car lot needs to keep an eye out for vandals and car thieves, so they need a lot of cameras, video verification, and motion sensors for when the car lot is closed at night.

Although there are a lot of outside threats, there are also risks inside businesses as well. A retail store can face employee theft, customer credit card information and cash theft all from varying inside sources.


Your Business’ Solutions

No business’ needs are identical to others, although all businesses run the risk of theft and break ins, every business varies as far as their industry and where they are located.

Hiring a security company and partner, like Titan Alarm, who is invested into what’s best for your business is by far the easiest first step.
