Q – I have seen similar systems online and in retail outlets, but most of them seem to be made by companies that I would normally not consider to be security related companies. Is there a real difference between those products and Total Connect from Honeywell?

totalconnect4Home Security Applications

Safe and Sound

When your children return home from school and disarm the alarm system you know it when it happens. Relax while away at work or out food shopping as an automated … on demand email alert let’s you know everyone is safe and sound.


Home Management

We all want to keep our property as secure as possible, without making access impossible. From cleaning services, to babysitting to delivery of that new wide screen 3D-TV to the Cable Company you’ll be able to disarm and arm your system yourself, without having to rely on a neighbor or the family member that ‘ … completely promised to be there … ‘. Put the freedom of managing your home at the convenience of anywhere you have access to the internet.


Home Power and Environmental Management

Be Virtually Green! By extending your total control you can also manage lights and other power devices as well as monitoring sources of air leaks and drafts. Have a back door that always creates a draft in the winter and no matter how many times you ask, someone is always leaving it open at the end of the night ? With Total Connect you don’t have to guess at what’s going on – you’ll know it. Adding a low temperature sensor to your Total Connect system could send you an email alert once the temperature in the area dropped below a certain point – clueing you in that the door has been left open for an extended period of time.

Total Connect works great for monitoring areas that are subject to flooding that you would like to know about – but do not require the authorities to be informed. By adding a water level detector to Total Connect you can be at home asleep or out driving in the country – all along knowing that if there is a problem you know it and can deal with it now rather than coming back later to a much larger problem.
See what we mean! There are literally endless possible applications – limited only by your needs, creativity and the knowledge and suggestions of our dedicated team of professional Security Sales Consultants.

Home Office Security

If you have a home office enjoy the flexibility of securing your office without having to arm your complete home alarm system. Using a door trigger and Total Connect you could be out of your office but still at home; maybe taking a well deserved nap in the backyard, to be alerted should someone in the house enter your office space unexpectedly. You may have the need to secure a particular section or cabinet space within your home or home office – such as a dark room or collection of Antiques. With Total Connect the possibilities are literally endless.
