Honeywell Total Connect Is Basis for New DIY Alarm Offering
The basis of the new offering from SAFE is Honeywell’s Total Connect 2.0, which offers users the ability to access their systems’ functions remotely with a smartphone, and the ability to view live video with any web-enabled device.
This new division will enable a consumer to self install a wireless security system at their home. This DIY home alarm system will include professional UL certified Five Diamond monitoring by SAFE Security and will not require a phone line. The home security system can be controlled remotely by a smartphone or tablet via Honeywell’s Total Connect.
“With an increased demand in the residential security market for a self installed alarm system coupled with increased technology that allows for a wireless security system to be setup in minutes, SAFE@home is well positioned to be a leader in the DIY security space,” says Paul Sargenti, SAFE’s president and CEO. “We’ve partnered with Honeywell to provide a state of the art wireless security system and will accommodate Wi-Fi for IP alarm communications. This will allow our customers to take advantage of being able to self-install their wireless security system. By enabling our customers to self install, they will save money by not requiring an alarm company to install the alarm system.”
Customers can select from three complete packages and add on additional hardware to best fit their needs. SAFE Security, based in San Ramon, Calif., is backed by ICV Partners.
