One of the big reasons iPhone and iPad users are so devoted is the easy, intuitive integration with thousands of dependable and easy-to-use apps. That's why the Brinks Home Security app is so appealing: It lets either device control almost every function of your home security alarm system and smart-home automation.
The perfect interaction
With compatible equipment and interactive functionality from Alarm.com, the Brinks Home Security app lets you manage your home from virtually anywhere. Go beyond the traditional home security alarm and add home security cameras, lights, locks, thermostats, garage-door openers and other devices to your system. After that, all it takes is a swipe or a tap to control your security and home automation devices and be aware of what s happening at
a moment's notice.
More than basic security
The Brinks Home Security app allows you to interact with your home security alarm system whether you're upstairs or uptown. Use our smart home solution to arm or disarm your system, lock or unlock doors, check the garage
door, or use a video doorbell to see who s there. There s no need to worry about forgetting to secure your house; just check it from wherever you are.
An extra set of eyes
Home security cameras are a popular addition to Brinks Home Security. Live or recorded video let you know what's going on while you're not home. It's easy to keep an eye on kids, pets or property.
Smart thermostats are popular not just for convenience but for energy savings. Control your thermostat remotely, set up a schedule that fits your lifestyle, or let your thermostat determine your patterns and adjust
accordingly to maximize savings.
Control your lights
Remote management of your lighting is another great way to save energy. It's also a proven deterrent to would-be burglars, since they like it when no one's home. Keep them wondering by setting a schedule or by turning lights
on throughout your smart home when it gets dark and you're running late.
Just the beginning
Geo-fencing, which uses your location to automatically take useful actions while you're out. These range from real-time notifications such as a garage door that s been left open to functions like adjusting your thermostator turning on your lights. Just define a circular "geo-fence" in your Brinks Home Security app and let your smartphone do the rest.
Real-time email, text, and push notifications for potential emergencies, such as home security alarms, break-ins, and equipment failures.
Notification for specific events, such as when your kids get home from school, or when your housekeeper or petsitter are in the house.
Note: This app requires you to have a compatible smart-home system and interactive Alarm.com service plan. Feature availability varies based on system, equipment, and service plan. Visit www.brinkshome.com for more
