Temperature Sensors


Titan Alarm is taking the Smart Home Energy Management System to a new level, we are now rolling out the Alarm.com Smart Home Thermostat Temperature Sensors. With these sensors your Smart Thermostat will now be enabled to take smarter steps to maximize energy savings and the comfortability of your home.

With out new wireless Temperature Sensors, you can deliver precision comfort to all of the rooms that you spend most of your time, not just the hallway that your thermostat happens to live.

Follow these steps to really utilize the Temperature Sensors:

1: Install Sensors in High Traffic Rooms. 

Chances are that the room your thermostat lives in, isn’t the room that you spend the most time in. Even if you have your current thermostat installed in your living room, that doesn’t mean the thermostat knows the temperature in your bedroom.

The answer to this problem is to install a Temperature Sensor on the wall of each room that has a high area of traffic, like your kitchen, bedrooms, living room and dining room.

2: Adjust comfort to the room you’re in

Now that you have temperature sensors around the house, you can specify which sensor commands the thermostat.

For example, let’s say that it’s bedtime. Downstairs, where the thermostat sits, the temperature is a comfortable 72 degrees. Upstairs, though, it’s 76 degrees—too warm for a comfortable night.

Simply open your Alarm.com app and tell your smart thermostat to optimize the home’s temperature for the bedroom until your bedroom sensor registers 72.

3: Create a Schedule

Creating a schedule is actually pretty easy, and the nice thing is, you can have it follow your daily routine and make your house that much more comfortable as you go about your day.

In this example, the user is assigning different sensors to each of the thermostat modes in the Alarm.com application.

For energy savings during the day (Away), they use the thermostat. For evenings (Home), they use the living room sensor. At night (Sleep) the bedroom sensor takes over.




4: Be sure to use your other thermostat features

Temperature Sensors are just one of the many ways of using your smart thermostat! Make sure you learn more about the system by contacting Titan Alarm today! Give us a call 602-680-4567

Beat The Heat

When you think “Smart Thermostat” do you think of saving money on your energy bill? Or do you think of a more comfortable house?

If you’re one of the people who think of both, well then congrats! You aren’t alone in your thinking! In fact, according to a recent Home Owners Survey, 93 percent of homeowners all think the way you do, and want both money savings and a more comfortable house!

So, why do most smart thermostats fail to deliver?

Most thermostats still monitor and control a house’s comfort and climate the old way, based on the temperature only in the room that the thermostat is installed in.

That technique works great if you want to have a comfortable living room or hall way, but not that well if your bedroom is upstairs where heat rises to.




Luckily, with Titan Alarm, there is a thermostat that gives you the options of having comfort around your whole house 24/7. A nice and even balance of a great temperature that is customised to each area of your house!

The Alarm.com Smart Thermostat is one of the most cutting edge thermostats on the market. With it’s smarter build and technology put into it, the thermostat has access to monitor every room in your house that has remote temperature sensors!

To utilize this feature, simply install remote sensors in every room you want to be able to monitor and control, assign it in the application to your thermostat and enjoy the precision comfort that has been assigned and targeted to that room. You can now easily create schedules for the temperatures in the rooms throughout the day and it’s all thanks to your smart home with temperature sensors.

Saving Money with Energy Management


In Arizona, we all know that July and August can be some of the hottest times of year in this hot hot desert state. Which means expensive energy bills to keep your house cool and in a comfortable environment to live in.

Inside houses, the top floors of the house get extremely hot, which is caused by heat rising. When this happens it creates hot zones, which aren’t necessarily where your thermostat is positioned.

This then will make it harder to keep your house comfortable and cool throughout the day and in the summer heat.

Unfortunately most homeowners simply put their air conditioning units on full blast until the whole house feels cool, but that actually racks up the energy bills quite a bit and is extremely inefficient.

Titan Alarm powered by alarm.com delivers a new way to keep your house at a comfortable and cool temperature, and we can help provide precision comfortability to your whole house.



1: Place Sensors in Main Rooms.

Temperature sensors that sync with your Titan Alarm system can and should be placed on the wall of high traffic and main use rooms in your house, that way it will give accurate readings sent back to your panel and thermostat to control the comfortability of the house.

For example: if you want your kitchen cooled down to 69 degrees, you can set the thermostat to target the kitchen and cool down your house until the sensor you have installed in the kitchen reads that the temperature is 69 degrees.

It’s worth the investment to have a temperature sensor in each other rooms in your house, that way you can have accurate readings of the temperature of the house as a whole.

Pro Tip: If you have young children and you make sure to put one in their bedroom or nursery, put it out of their reach.




2: Create a Schedule

With the temperature sensors, you can now target individual rooms and their climate all from your smartphone and the Alarm.com app! You can now manually control targeted rooms but the easiest way to do it is all with a schedule!

Based off of your family’s routine, you can make a schedule that will target all of the different rooms in your house as your family uses them and changes their routine around the house as the day goes on.

A great example of how scheduling works can be something as perfect as follows: you can set your house’s schedule to change the climate of the house at around 9am when you take the kids to school and you head to work, and then around 5pm when you’re heading home you can have the house change climate again to fit what you want to come home to.

Pro Tip: Schedule your house to change when you’re going to be gone for most of the day.

 3: Balance Your Smart House  


With precision comfort it can help save money on your energy bill by delivering just the right amount of energy needed to keep your house at a comfortable temperature rather than blasting the air conditioning all summer long.

Some of the amazing features and add ons you can get for your Titan Alarm Smart Home Thermostat are as follows:

Auto-Setback: This feature monitors your doors and windows to make sure none of them are accidentally left open and you accidentally start heating or cooling the outside world. If anything is left open, your thermostat will alert you and it will automatically set your houses temperatures back as to minimize energy waste until the door or window left open is closed.

Geo-Services: Using your smartphone’s location, your thermostat and smart home panel will use your phone’s location to control the climate and comfortability of your house. By using your phone’s location your house will go into “savings” mode once you leave a certain radius. To learn more about Geo-Services CLICK HERE.

Extreme Temps: This feature gives you the possibility and options of setting your thermostat to change temperatures when the outside temperature gets too hot, so that your house won’t fry while you’re away on a hot Phoenix day.
