Today’s leading intruder detection solutions offer very high levels of protection, ensuring homes and families are safe and secure, allowing workplaces and their assets to be safeguarded, and mitigating risks and threats from a range of sources. However, they also offer added-value benefits such as the automation of tasks, management of sub-systems and the delivery of real-time notifications about site status changes.
One of the more liberating developments for users has been the introduction of Apps to control intruder alarms. The Texecom Connect V2 App not only allows users a simpler method of setting and unsetting their alarm, but enables them to connect the vast range of benefits inherent in the Premier Elite security system with the way they live and work.
The App uses Modes to demystify Part Set, allowing a high degree of flexibility with regard to how the system is set. An Away mode could be created, with the system fully set, and an At Home mode with it fully unset. A wide range of other fully customisable modes could then be created to suit any other circumstances. For example, a Night mode might set the downstairs of a house, or all offices in a block but leaving the corridors usable. If vulnerable people were alone, they could create an Evening mode which sets the system for rooms they wouldn’t normally use.
Another benefit of Texecom Connect V2 is the ability to create Recipes: cause and effect programmed actions. These can be security related, switching on lights when a user returns home at night, or lifestyle based, switching appliances when certain activities take place. Recipes not only give the customer access to the full flexibility of their alarm system, but they also provide a feelgood factor when making an investment in security systems. Recipes can also be included in Modes, allowing the customer to adapt the system and the environment to meet their needs.
The intuitive Texecom Connect timeline serves as the general interface for the App, giving at-a-glance status information. This allows users to drill down and discover more information about the alarm condition, events, activities and actions, with a single touch.
Texecom Connect V2 combines easy-to-understand control over the alarm system, coupled with unrivalled flexibility and the capability to automate security procedures and device automation, all from an intuitive and streamlined interface. Installers should ensure their customers are upgraded to the latest version, ensuring they will be able to benefit from new developments which are planned for the near future.
Upgrading customers is quick and easy, and allows the installation company to take full control of their connected systems to enjoy a greater level of control.
