Let’s face it… conserving energy is part of living in Southern California. Our communities continue to sprawl, but the power grids don’t expand at a rate equal to the population. The result: high prices and the possibility of outages when the grid overloads.
Z-wave is a next-generation wireless ecosystem that lets all your home electronics talk to each other, and to you, via remote control. It uses simple, reliable, low-power radio waves that easily travel through walls, floors and cabinets. Z-wave control can be added to almost any electronic device in your house, even devices that you wouldn’t ordinarily think of as “intelligent,” such as appliances, window shades, thermostats and home lighting.
Never again will you have to worry about energy-sucking lights and appliances being left on while you’re away. Simply program them to automatically turn off based on the armed status, meaning the moment you arm the alarm in an “away” status, designated lights and appliances will all turn off automatically.
One of the system’s coolest features is geo-services. Your alarm knows your physical location through the GPS on your smart phone.
Don’t want the house to be hot and stuffy when you get home from a long day at the office? No problem. When your phone gets within a preset distance of your home, the temperature control will automatically kick in to begin cooling your home for your arrival.
Endless Energy Management Possibilities
Those are just some of the ways your system’s energy control feature helps you achieve cost savings, awareness, convenience and control. The more devices you add to your security network, the stronger it becomes. It’s like weaving a web of high-tech energy control that gets stronger and stronger with every link.
