The EMC Security local monitoring center received an alarm from the home security system of a customer in Duluth. The alarms began with motion detectors located in the foyer and kitchen area of the home. The monitoring center immediately contacted the customer and notified her of the alarms. The customer indicated that no one was home and requested police dispatched to her home. A few minutes later the customer called back to let the monitoring center know that her husband was at the home with responding police officers who found the screen taken off a window and the window open. Thankfully, there was nothing taken from the home as the security system worked properly and prevented loss. This Duluth customer had multiple motion detection devices as a part of her home security system. It is most beneficial to have motion detectors as they can help verify an conditions in the home. Having multiple motion devices, always installed on separate zones by EMC Security, can help verify an alarm condition in the home. Please always consider having enough motion detectors to your home as they add to the level of protection your security system helps provide to your home and family.

Advances in security industry technology and the internet have opened up a world of new possibilities for consumers. The security industry seized upon the available technology to build value among their customers. The advent of the security system app quickly grew to include the control of thermostats, lights, and locks. Customers can now control the electronics in their home from anywhere they have an internet connection.
EMC Security Sales Manager, Michael Morton says, “the early adopters of this technology were ‘techies’, but now we’re seeing customers from all walks of life electing to add these services to their home.” Morton credits the low cost of the service and the convenience of remote system controls with the rapid growth in the “connected” services demand. EMC Security has developed our exclusive Secure Path Technology™ that allows these types of connected services.
Research shows that not only do consumers find the technology convenient but they’re also learning that the thermostat controls can significantly reduce power consumption. By allowing the security system to set the thermostat back four degrees automatically when the security system is armed, the average consumer can save $180 per year in “wasted power,” according to Energy Star.
EMC Security will be showcasing this new technology at the North Atlanta Home Show at the Gwinnett Center on February 10th, 11th and 12th. Please visit us at the show for live demonstrations of these services.
