Protection One is now offering an iPhone
application that lets
you access your home's security panels and receive real-time security updates
from an iPhone or iPod
The new eSecure application allows users to confirm that their
security system is armed while away from home. Should you need to send a
contractor or someone else into the home unexpectedly, you can turn off the
alarm remotely from the application.
When your system is armed, the eSecure system will send text
or email messages if motion is detected, a particular door is opened, in the
event of a flood, if high carbon-monoxide levels are recorded, and even when a
liquor or medicine cabinet, safe, or other sensitive area is accessed.
By providing the application, Protection One hopes to
deliver peace of mind to users whenever they are away from home. “No one wants
to spend a vacation or business trip worrying about leaving the garage door
open or if the security alarm is set,” says Protection One President and CEO
Richard Ginsburg. “This application puts security at your fingertips and keeps
you connected, even when you’re away.”
The application uses multiple layers of password protection
to maintain safety and security. A standard Protection One keypad code is
required for access to the eSecure keypad, which is not stored on the device or
visible to anyone looking at the screen.
The new eSecure iPhone application is free with the eSecure
service subscription and available for download at the iPhone App Store
