Homeowners are increasingly asking Guardhouse about home automation systems and services in Indianapolis that can be integrated with their security system. They want to have the ability to remotely check up on their home and adjust as many home settings as possible – lighting, heating & air conditioning, security (alarm system and locks), and video surveillance – regardless of their current location. Moreover, homeowners want the alarm system to contact them via email or text message alerting them of a water leak, a child arriving home from school, or a smoke detector going off. You can even make certain areas of your home off-limits to kids such as a gun, medicine, or liquor cabinet. These features give you peace of mind when you are away from home as well as providing reduced utility costs and greater convenience.
Home automation systems are no longer an idea of the future. It’s here and it’s within your reach. The improvements will not only save you time, but help you keep your life and home running at optimum efficiency.
