Honeywell has launched a new application for Android devices that enables users to control their security systems and view live, streaming video from any remote location.
This version is the latest application of Honeywell’s popular Total Connect 2.0 Remote Services, which allows users to utilize the Internet, smartphones, cameras and more to stay connected to a security system wherever they are.
The new icon-based user interface allows users to control security system keypad functions and video viewing. With the tap of a finger, users can view live video, record and store video clips, take snapshots or have video clips or pictures e-mailed to them of events, such as deliveries taking place or the coming and going of individuals.
The app also replicates a physical keypad, letting users arm, disarm and silence their systems, bypass doors and control lights and garage doors. When combined with anti-theft and environmental sensors, end-users can receive alerts on mobile devices if valuable objects have been moved and if flood or extreme temperature changes have been detected.
Total Connect 2.0 subscribers can download the app for free in the Android Market.
