The benefits of using Honeywell Total Connect 2 App

No matter where you live, you must protect what is important to you.

Protecting your home and your family matters more than anything. This is Honeywell’s principal goal for its security systems.

However, the acquisition of a security system and the management of it are two very different concepts.

Honeywell’s app, the Total Connect (2.0), delegates the management and control of your security system as well as compatible Z-Wave devices to your mobile device (thermostats, lighting, locks, etc.).

You will now be able to rescue your teenage son who has forgotten his keys by unlocking the door of your home remotely to let him in with the help of the system.

If the cat inadvertently triggers the system, you will also be able to turn off the alarm, no matter how far away you are at the moment.

There are many other ways to use it conveniently.

You will also be able to watch live videos from your security system or hear alarms during events such as moving precious objects, sudden detection of movements, or extreme changes in temperature.

The app will provide you with many options for security and control. You only have to download it to protect everything that matters to you no matter where you are.
