ADC-SEM-100-CDMA / ADC-SEM-100-LTE: Installation to Honeywell Vista Systems

Here you will learn how to install the ADC-SEM-100-CDMA / ADC-SEM-100-LTE cellular communicator into Honeywell Vista security systems. Compatible Vista panels are as follows Vista 10p/10psia, 15p/15psia, 20p/20psia and 21ip wired systems. In the past typically Honeywell Vista panels would achieve interactive alarm monitoring services by using their own Total Connect application. Now, customers have another option to add to the list.

The ADC-SEM-100-CDMA / ADC-SEM-100-LTE uses Alarm.com for reporting of alarms and other system events using the CDMA/LTE networks. The SEM is meant to be used as the primary communication path for all alarm signals to our central monitoring station. Once installed and activated the SEM module allows for remote operation by the customer from their smart devices. They will have the ability to access the system at any time from any location. Additional features include viewing system and sensor status/ history, remote arming/disarming, setting up and managing user codes, creating customized email and text notifications for any type of alarm or none- alarm activity at their property. The SEM cellular communicator also supports alarm.com home automation services due to its built in z-wave receiver.

 Introducing the Honeywell AlarmNet GPS Tracking Services by GEOARM

This video is to introduce the Honeywell AlarmNet Total Connect 2.0 GPS tracking services.

There are two different types of tracking services Honeywell AlarmNet provides. The first is the asset tracking, this service is perfect for fixed or mobile assets like trailers, atv’s or even classic cars. This works when the asset is moved from its location the GPS will activate and a signal will be transmitted to the central alarm station which in turn will send you a push notification to your smart device letting you know of the new activity.

The second option when it comes to Honeywell’s AlarmNet GPS tracking services is vehicle tracking. This is perfect for cars, trucks and service vans. A perfect example of how you can utilize this feature is let’s say you have a GPS vehicle tracking device installed in a work van, you can setup a notification to populate to your smart device if the van goes over a set speed limit. You can also track the routes the driver is taking to become more efficient.

These two options can be added to your existing alarm system or you can use the GPS services as a standalone feature. When adding the Honeywell Total Connect array of services is peace of mind.

 DSC PowerSeries Neo – Highlighted Feature Video

The DSC PowerSeries Neo next generation hybrid security system boasts superior features that’s others just don’t have. The Neo system is smart enough to recognize the distance between RF receiver to the devices. This allows the panel to communicate with the sensor telling it whether it needs to pull maximum power or a reduced amount of power based on the distance. For example if a PG9945 wireless Neo contact is 1000 feet away from the RF receiver than that contact will likely be using max power. Yet, if the contact is 5 feet from the RF receiver it will not need to use as much battery power which in turn can make the battery life on your sensors last up to 10 years.

The Neo system Infused with industry-leading Power G 2-way wireless communication devices, the Neo is able to hop between wireless frequency channels so that if one is jammed, it will move to a free frequency. This allows for seamless, reliable communication between the control panel and devices and further encrypts the signals making it more difficult to tamper.

One of the most appealing feature of the Neo system is the range of the sensors. The Neo system can have a max of 1,000 feet distance between sensors and the RF receiver. Not to mention the additional 1,000 feet of when adding a power g wireless repeater. That is a total of 2,000 feet you can have spaced between the sensors and the RF receiver making this one of the most powerful hybrid security systems ever produced!

The Neo system has a few different ways of communicating its signal back to our central monitoring station. The first would be through a pots line or supported VOIP line. Typically we don’t prefer this mode because it is not the most reliable in the sense that an intruder could cut those lines, or the power can go out either of these will render your system useless. In addition, a phone line or VOIP line system will not allow you to have the alarm.com interactive services capabilities. There is also the PowerSeries Neo internet hybrid security system option. This method would share identical characteristics of a Neo phone line system. Lastly, you have the DSC PowerSeries Neo alarm.com cellular kit.

 The cellular Neo system will still offer your home or business security even if the power fails, or an intruder cuts your phone/internet lines leading into the home. The reason being is the cellular module that is installed into the Neo system is powered off of the alarm backup battery which allows for communications back to our central monitoring station even under the conditions reported above. The usage of the cellular kit will also allow for the use of Alarm.com interactive services by GEOARM. Having this feature unlocked is a huge advantage. It allows for GEOARM to remotely program and manipulate your alarm system remotely from our tech office at no extra cost (must be an alarm monitored client). Alarm.com allows for you to control your security system remotely. You can arm/disarm the system, view event history, change, add, or delete user profiles remotely from anywhere in the world with internet connectivity. Home automation becomes an option because inside the cellular module comes the z-wave radio which will allow your system to talk to z-wave home automation devices such as door locks, light modules, thermostats, and garage door sensors.

There is also a DSC Neo dual path hybrid alarm system. This version is the most reliable way to send your signals to our central monitoring station. It offers you all of the same great features as the above cellular system but, it allows your system two ways to communicate its alarm signals via internet primary and cellular backup.

 Home Security Advise for the Winter

Home Security Tips

Home Security Tips

With all of the pleasant holidays thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa all wrapped up in the winter months many people tend to get lost in all the joy and forget some key factors in home security and safety. Winter makes for a perfect time for intruders because you can bet there will be tons of distractions, traffic, less daylight, and most importantly lots and lots of expensive gifts.

Lets keep the holiday spirit going but, before you begin we are going to give you some simple tips to stay protected this winter.

1) Hide Tools

Many people during this time of the year put there tools to good use. Hanging decorations or shoveling snow out of the side walks and driveways. Make sure once you have completed the task take your tools and place them back inside so those tools cannot be used to pry open your doors or windows.

2) Limit Social Media

Lets face it social media is every where but, that doesn’t mean you have to place all of your personal information for everyone to see. Intruders can monitor social media accounts to get up to date information on travel information and or your whereabouts. Inform everyone who lives in the household to limit status updates until arrival from trip.

3) Make it seem as if someone is home

Intruders typically monitor a neighborhood before they select a target. So you want to make your home look as if it is occupied even when you are away on a vacation. Ask a neighbor or friend to stop by daily to collect incoming mail and newspapers. Also, to shovel the driveway and walkways to make its seem as if the home is still being maintained.

4) Leave Lights on

During the winter months set up timers to activate interior and exterior lights if possible. Proper lighting during the evening will deter a home intruder. Look into a security system that has randomized lighting control option for convenience.

5) Make sure Doors and Windows are Closed

This is by far the most common mistake home owners make. Something as simple as checking all doors and windows making sure they are locked can be the difference between an intruder choosing to enter or flee to another home.

6) Be Discrete with your Gift Purchases

Many home owners love to show off their Christmas tress and decorations inside there home. You will drive by some house’s and be able to look directly in seeing all of the gifts sitting under the tree. Try not to do this because it shows that you do have items to offer an intruder if they decide to go with your home. This also goes for your trash don’t throw the gift boxes directly into the trash and leave it in the front of your house. Try to make one large garbage bag and throw it away in an offsite location all at once.

7) Home security System

If you don’t have a Home security system you should think about installing one in your home. Intruders will typically stay away from a home that has a home security system. If they have been watching your home they will see whether you have one or not by the interaction between home owner and system. The security signs and stickers that are provided make sure to flaunt those where people can see so they know you are protected. Lastly, make sure to test your alarm signals once a week and before headed out of town.

Hopefully these tips will help  keep you and your family safe!
