Security Cameras For Your Indy Home

Exterior security cameras record the movements outside your home. You’ll want to place them in strategic locations such as the front door, the back door, and near windows. When they’re connected to a remote services app like Total Connect, you get alerts on your phone in the case of suspicious activity.

If you’re having packages delivered while you’re away for the holidays, you can watch them as they get dropped off. And you can make sure no one steals them off the porch. If you’re sitting in the dining room eating dinner and hear a strange noise outside, you can check your cameras to make sure it’s not an intruder.

Asset and Vehicle Trackers For Your Cars

Asset and vehicle trackers plug into cars, trucks, RVs, motorcycles, boats, and more to give you real-time location and alerts. Whether you’re sipping hot chocolate in Indy or opening presents two states over, the asset tracker will let you know if your car ever left the driveway.

Environmental Sensors For Your Indy Home

Environmental sensors let you know when something dangerous is about to damage your house. Carbon monoxide detectors alert you to the release of the lethal gas. Flood sensors sound the alarm on impending water damage. And heat detectors work with smoke detectors to notify you of a rise in temperature - even when smoke or fire are absent.

Connect these environmental sensors to a remote access app like Total Connect and get all these alerts on your phone. This way, you can be proactive about securing your belongings whether you’re building a snowman or watching a holiday movie.
