MELVILLE, N.Y., April 26, 2010– Honeywell has launched an updated app for Apple iPhone and iPod touch devices, letting users control their security systems and view live, streaming video from any remote location. This version is the latest application of Honeywell’s popular Total Connect Remote Services, which let consumers utilize the Internet, smartphones, cameras and more to stay connected to their homes and businesses wherever they are.
End-users can now toggle between security system keypad functions and video viewing with the tap of a finger. In the Video mode, users can view live video, record and store video clips, take snapshots or have custom video alerts or pictures e-mailed to them upon an event, such as a delivery taking place or a child arriving home from school. In the Security mode, the app replicates a physical keypad, letting users arm, disarm and silence their systems, bypass doors and control lights and garage doors. When combined with anti-theft and environmental sensors, end-users can receive alerts on mobile devices if valuable objects have been moved and if flood or extreme temperature changes have been detected.
Total Connect subscribers can download the Total Connect App for free in the Apple iTunes App Store (SM). For more information about Total Connect Remote Services, please visit www.mytotalconnect.com.
