Fire Detection

An integrated system of sensors that can detect a fire via the presence of smoke, rapidly rising temperature, extreme heat, etc.

Intrusion Detection

The portion of an Integrated Security System that is designed to detect an unauthorized entry into a protected area via the use of sensors such as door switches, motion detectors, glass break sensors, etc.

Keyless Entry

An integrated system of electronic door locks and computerized control hardware that unlock doors based on a preset time schedule, presence of a valid access card, or entry of a valid PIN number or other form of personal verification.

Medical Alert

A portable button that can be worn and pressed to transmit an emergency (or non-emergency) signal to our Quick-C.A.R.E. monitoring center where our responders can then notify paramedics, family members, and/or other responsible parties that a person is in need of medical assistance. Medical Alerts are often associated with the phrase, “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

TotalConnect

The web-based service that allows clients to remotely control their Honeywell alarm systems, thermostats, lighting controls, keyless entry locks, and video cameras via their smart phone, tablet, or computer.

U.L. Listed

Certification that a particular product or service has been inspected by Underwriters Laboratories for proper design, operation, and reliability.

Verified Time Schedule Events

The monitoring process of matching security system arming and disarming activity with a customer-defined time schedule to ensure that a particular area is secured by a specific time and remains secured until the predefined opening time.

Video Surveillance System

An integrated system of cameras, recording devices, and viewing options to allow viewing of live images or recorded events.
