Devices like your lights, plugs, appliances, heating & cooling systems & more. Here are 3 great reasons:

Ease and Convenience

Many of your daily repetitive tasks can be accomplished automatically or with fewer steps using home automation. Instead of having to manually dim or turn off multiple lights when you want to watch tv, home automation will allow you to accomplish this task with one button. Adjust the temperature of your home while you’re out and on the go, ensuring you come home to the ideal climate (Plus with remote climate control you’ll save money on energy bills). Lock your front door from your car or simply set a schedule to lock the doors as you leave for work in the morning. By turning your home into a smart home, you’ll have a more productive and enjoyable lifestyle.

Enhanced Security

With smart camera feeds, smart lighting and smart locks your home security will be enhanced, giving you further peace of mind. If you’ve forgotten to lock your doors, you can easily correct that from anywhere through your smartphone or tablet. Close your garage door a the push of a button. Plus you can tie different smart home features with your home alarm system, allowing you to turn on the outside lights when the system is armed. You can even have your smart lights flash if the system is triggered, allowing the police to easily identify your home during a break in.

“Cool Factor”

What Is Home Automation?

Certain security companies are offering home automation services in addition to their home security offerings. We keep hearing about home automation, the ability to turn your home into a smart home. But what is home automation and smart home services?

Home automation is the ability to control certain devices in your home through your smartphone or tablet. These smart devices add functionality and an extra level of home comfort as they allow you to cater these devices to your lifestyle.

Imagine you are locked outside your home and you forgot your key. With home automation, you can log into an app on your smartphone and press a button which will open your lock remotely! Or if you’re on a road trip, you can turn off your thermostat when you leave your home and when you’re on your way home, turn the a/c up so you’ll return to a cold comfy house!

Thermostats, door locks, light switches, and garage doors are all devices that can be controlled through home automation. Plus these devices can be linked in scenes, where at the push of a button not only will your thermostat lower, but also your doors can lock and your indoor lights turn off and outdoor lights come on.

Smart technology devices can communicate with the home automation control panel through various methods, with the most common being either Z-Wave, wifi or Zigbee and can often be integrated with a home security system.

Smart technology traditionally has been expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars to turn your home into a smart home. It’s required highly skilled labor to install the smart home equipment and then complex programs to control the devices.

This is no longer the case though. With Think Protection, home automation can be added to your home alarm system for only $49.99 and then $1.99/month. The monthly charge does not change if you have multiple devices control through the Think Protection mobile app.

Think Protection’s home automation works through Z-Wave, and a large number of Z-Wave equipment can be used with the system. You can also buy a thermostat, door locks, light switches, garage door openers and modules which will let you turn on and off whatever you plug in, directly from Think Protection for an incredibly low price.

Think Protection’s home automation turns your home into a smart home at a price that can’t be beaten elsewhere. Have a great user experience at an incredibly low price. Be able to control parts of your home from anywhere in the world.

3 Amazing Features of The Think Protection Mobile App

Every Think Protection home alarm system comes with access to our mobile app free of charge. The app is available on both Android and iPhones. The app is feature rich, allowing you to do things not available through most other home alarm company’s mobile apps.

With the Think Protection app, you can turn the system on and off remotely. This can be done in both away mode and home mode. This means that in each mode, certain peripherals may be active, letting you arm properly regardless of if you’re home or not. In the away mode, your motion detectors may be active, while if you have it set for home mode it might just be your door contacts and maybe a glass break sensor. This gives you freedom and flexibility to always have your system active, giving you the best security at all times.

Another great thing about the Think Protection app is that you can control all your smart devices. The app gives you full home automation right at your fingertips. Your smart lights, thermostat, front door and even your garage door can all be controlled by the app. The functionality is amazing, and lets you have unparalleled control of your home from anywhere in the world. And you can add smart devices at anytime, so the app can scale with all of your security and home automation needs.

You can also do amazing things like control the audio prompts of your system through the app. If you don’t want the system to make any beeps when it’s arming or disarming, you can mute the system through the app. You can also control each individual part of your system, so if you want to turn a zone (specific peripheral) on or off, you can directly through your app. The app will also tell if you’re having any problems with the system exactly which part needs attention – so you’ll always know every detail about the system at all times.
