Encrypted & Secure
The wireless communication created between the control and each device is supervised and encrypted. The system builds a "hack proof" communication network of security devices.
LTE - Long Term Evolution
The control is designed for easy software updates and technology advances. The FREE software updates will keep your system operating with the latest innovations and performance, years into the future.
Built-in 5mp Camera
The embedded camera takes a picture of each person operating the control system. You can review who armed or disarmed the system at anytime and it can even alert you, in real time via smart phone, who has armed or disarmed the system, along with the individual's image. This feature is easily turned on or off as needed.
Hands Free Control - Bluetooth Disarming
Your smart phone can automatically arm or disarm the system based on your location. When you arrive home, the system will detect your phone is on-site and automatically disarm, giving you hands free control as you arrive home. When you leave, it will detect the absence of your phone and automatically arm your system and control your home automated devices. This feature is easily turned on or off as desired.
Dual Tamper-proof Communications
The system is truly state of the art. It is equipped with two separate communication paths to the monitoring center. One being cloud based and the other being 5G cell technology. When one path slows or drops off, the other path is used to transmit the alarm information. The result is unbeatable dual communication paths.
Smart Home Technology
The control is equipped with z-wave technology that allows you to use up to 128 smart home devices, such as lights, locks, thermostats, garage openers and more. Home automation devices can be added to your system as needed.
Built-in Glass Break Sensor
Each control or keypad has a glass break detector built-in. It detects the vibration and frequency of breaking glass; detecting any glass breaking within a 20 foot radius of the unit. This device adds a $199 value to the control (the cost of a glass break sensor).

Alarm System Design Suggestions
There are three basic designs when it comes to burglar alarms (Trap Protection, Perimeter Protection and a combination of these two).
This is the most cost effective design. It utilizes a combination of door sensors and strategically placed motion sensors. The design is effective if you plan on using the system when you are away from home. Door sensors are installed on the entry and exit doors. The door sensors are programmed for a delay time, allowing you to arm and disarm the system during the entry/exit period. Motion sensors are placed to cover the traffic areas. The goal is to place motion sensors in certain locations so that an intruder cannot move from one area to the other without being detected (hallways and open kitchen/living rooms are good examples). This design does leave "dead spots" where an intruder could enter, but they cannot move from that area to another without being detected and tripping the alarm. This design is effective and saves money because less devices are used for detection. When an entry door is opened, it puts all motion sensors into a delay period, allowing you to disarm the system without triggering an alarm. If the motion sensor detects movement without an entry door being opened first, an alarm is instantly triggered.
This design is used mainly to secure your home while you are there. A combination of window/door sensors and glass break sensors are used to protect all possible perimeter entry points. Since no motion detectors are used, the system can be armed while home, allowing for free movement inside without tripping any devices.
This design combines the Trap Design and Perimeter Design. The system utilizes a combination of window/door, glass break and motion sensors. This allows the user to arm all devices when leaving and only arm the perimeter devices when home. The action is very easy. You simply choose the "armed away mode" when leaving or the "armed stay mode" when settling in for the evening.
