See Videofied in Action

Filed under: Professional,Video Verification,Videofied Kits — Blake @ 3:01 pm

This is an actual video clip captured by a Videofied system and transmitted to GeoArm’s central station. This individual was in the process of burglarizing a construction site north of Tampa, FL.

When your security system leads to the capture of potential criminals (especially when they have been previously burglarized) it leads to some seriously happy Videofied customers! When the central station operator can see what causes the alarm, not only do you eliminate most false alarms, you also get priority dispatch from the police. Police departments know that most alarm systems are blind, and there is a strong chance that they will be responding to a false alarm. When an operator calls and can say that they visually see a crime, police respond much faster, as a robbery in progress. This also eliminates the need for verification calls which take valuable time. Only Videofied wireless video alarm systems make this possible.


New Total Connect iPhone App Replaces MyKeypad

Filed under: Honeywell Kits,Total Connect — Blake @ 12:40 pm

Honeywell AlarmNet has released a new application for Total Connect allowing users more control of their security system from their iPhone or iPod Touch. There is a new application that provides video services as well as additional interactive functions, called “TotalConnect” instead of “MyKeypad”. This application is available for free download via the App Store or iTunes.

If you were previously using “MyKeypad” to access your TotalConnect services, simply install the new “Total Connect” application, activate it using the eight digit activation code, already entered on their Configure Mobile Page. After it is activated, you can delete the other “MyKeypad” application.

Previously, we understood that the MyKeypad application would be upgraded, but Honeywell engineering has decided to create a new appl from scratch. Check out the screeshots for the new Total Connect app:

The new Total Connect app also provides support for Honeywell’s new video surveillance product that we will be releasing shortly! You can get AlarmNet Total Connect monitoring service starting at only $17 at GeoArm. If you need a new security system, the LYNX Plus is fully compatible with all of the Total Connect services.
