Smart homes are trending in a big way these days and look to be the way of the future for enhanced convenience, cost-savings, and security. Home automation systems can allow you to control things like lighting, heating, air conditioning, home appliances, entertainment systems, and home security remotely. This helps provide home owners with peace of mind knowing their valuables are safe and that energy and money is not being unnecessarily wasted.
TELUS Home Alarm Systems
TELUS monitored security systems provide users with a range of options and features for enhanced home protection including video surveillance, remote monitoring, and a centralized control panel.
TELUS home security can get you on your way to smart home operation by keeping you connected to occurrences and activities happening in and around your home even when you are not there. Automated processes can be configured to add convenience and comfort to daily living.
TELUS Home Security for Optimal Safety
Although TELUS home security systems offer a variety of smart options for your home, safety is the number one concern to protect your home and the people who live there.
Smart lock devices help ensure your house is always locked up when no one is home to prevent intruders from entering. This also makes sure you never have to worry about losing your keys or being locked out. Multiple entry codes can be configured to keep track of who is entering your home for detailed records. Temporary codes can also be set up for guests or trusted contractors doing work on your home.
Some of the excellent safety features of TELUS home security include:
- Video surveillance
- Wi-fi doorbell camera
- Smart garage door opener
- Fire protection
- Carbon monoxide monitoring
- Flood control
Setting up video surveillance cameras around your home can help enhance security to prevent break-ins and improve the safety of your family. The presence of video surveillance cameras around the home accompanied by a TELUS home security sticker in your front window is an effective way to deter thieves and burglars.
Video surveillance cameras can also be helpful for keeping an eye on children, elderly relatives, and pets to ensure they are safe.
Wi-Fi Doorbell Camera
Another effective way to deter trespassers and burglars is with a TELUS Wi-fi doorbell camera. Doorbell cameras work by syncing with your smartphone to send an alert any time motion is detected at your front door. The camera allows you to see who is standing at your front door with the ability to communicate with that individual remotely.
Smart Garage Door Opener
Utilizing smart technology for your garage door ensures you never forget to close it which cuts off a potential access point for intruders. You can configure the system to send notifications whenever your garage door is in use or it has been left open for a pre-set length of time.
A fire in your home can cause extensive damage and jeopardize the people who live there. TELUS fire alarm and smoke detection systems help catch fire in its early stages whether you are home or not. Detecting a fire as quickly as possible can help save lives and protect your valuables.
At the first sign of a fire, an alert will be sent to your smartphone and the monitoring Center. You will then be able to quickly assess the situation and have the option to press the panic or fire alarm buttons for immediate emergency response services. If you are not home at the time, a service representative can act on your behalf.
Carbon Monoxide Monitoring
The risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning in the home can be significantly reduced with effective monitoring and detection systems. Since CO is colourless and odourless, it is virtually impossible to detect naturally. When CO is detected in your home alerts will be sent to your smartphone and the monitoring center to determine the best course of action.
Just like in the case of fire, detecting a flood early is the best way to prevent damage and loss. Flood sensors are implemented in potentially problematic areas such as in a basement or near appliances connected to a water line. Instant alerts will be sent to allow you to provide home access to flood control technicians to deal with the issue if you are not at home.
