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.
