Total Control for Your Home
The Total Control Touchpad from Custom Security Systems is more than just another keypad that controls your security system. It is a home management tool that enhances the features of your security system and offers the convenience of lighting, door lock and thermostat control – all in one place. Using Z-Wave technology, you can seamlessly integrate several devices to work with your security system. Instead of driving up to an unlit home, fumbling for keys to unlock the door and then trying to disarm the system without lights, you simply can use the button on your security remote control to turn on outdoor and indoor lights, unlock the door, disarm the system, and adjust the thermostat.
Reduce Your Energy Costs
Your security system knows your schedule, so it is the ideal tool to use to control your lights and thermostats – and your electric bill.
Everyone can agree that energy conservation has a direct impact on energy savings. It seems like someone always forgets to set the thermostat back or leaves a light on when no one is home. And, when the electricity bill comes in, you see the proof. For homeowners who use Custom Security’s Touchpad, saving on energy costs can be as easy and routine as using your security system. Users of programmable thermostats have the potential to save up to 33% a year on their energy costs, but when users’ schedules change, programmable thermostats often end up being adjusted manually. Now, you can use the Touchpad to control a ZStat thermostat and lighting. When you arm the system to leave, you can turn off all lights and the thermostat automatically adjusts to your set-back temperature. When you come back and disarm the system, designated lights will turn on and the thermostat will return to a comfortable setting. You can even include ceiling fans in the program.
The Touchpad Offers Convenience
How often has this happened? You’re in bed upstairs, reading the latest e-book on your iPad and wonder if you remembered to lock the door downstairs. Instead of having to get out of your comfortable bed, check the door by pulling up the Total Control interface on your iPad and lock the door with the touch of one button. You can also set up scenes for routine tasks, such as a Nightime one that locks all doors, turns off all lights and arms the system with the touch of one button.Combined with cameras, use Total Control on your web-enabled TV to check on the kids playing outside while you’re inside. The Total Control Touchpad has special features built-in like local weather forecast information and a center to record and playback messages to family members.
