Automated Lighting Control

Perhaps you’d like to create the perfect atmosphere in any room of your home, or you want to save energy. Either way, Secur-Tek can put intelligent lighting at your fingertips:

  • Never come home to a dark house. You can have lights automatically turn on at dusk, when you unlock or enter, or even create a pathway of light to welcome you home.
  • Program your lights and televisions to turn on and off at specific times to make your home appear occupied – and less likely to be a target for thieves.
  • Save energy by setting lights to turn off when a room is left unoccupied for a specified amount of time.
  • Save time. With the Total Connect app, scenes and schedules can be set up to enable you to control multiple functions by activating the programmed “scene”. For instance, you might set up a scene that arms the system, shuts off the lights, and turns down the thermostat ….all at the push of a button.

Control4 Smart Door Locks

Smart Door Locks

Smart door locks are an excellent feature to include in a home automation system. When they are incorporated into your smart home you can:

  • Go key-free. Lock and unlock from anywhere
  • Let the right people in. Give visitors a code that only works when YOU are expecting them.
  • Track who’s coming and going. View door lock history and receive text messages to confirm when someone arrives home.
  • Stop worrying if you locked the back door.  Secure your home with one touch!
  • Open and close your myQ® enabled garage door with your phone, from anywhere.

Sensors for Safety and Emergency

Your smart home can connect to your security system, including standard sensors like smoke and fire detectors. Depending on your needs, Secur-Tek, Inc. can also include:

  • Monitored carbon monoxide detectors. CO has no odor, color, or taste, and large amounts can be dangerous. If this happens, the fire department will be notified, and you’ll get an alert even if you are away from your home.
  • Automated water shutoff.  Every year nearly one million families have their homes ruined by water damage. These unexpected incidences can result in costly repairs.

Special Uses of Automation

Senior citizens – Automation can make life simpler and safer for everyone, but especially senior citizens. Remote monitoring can be set up so caregivers, family members, or medical personnel can check in on the activities of elderly or ill relatives at home.

For example, a sensor on the medicine cabinet or a camera in the kitchen could be set up as an unobtrusive way to remotely monitor key activities or notifications can be set up to monitor movement and activity (or lack of) throughout the house, providing valuable wellness insights in homes with a sick or elderly resident.

Pets – Secur-Tek, Inc can provide greater peace of mind for both new and seasoned pet owners:

  • Check-in or talk to your furry friend anytime, or monitor hired pet setters.
  • Open locked doors to let neighbors or friends in when you’re unexpectedly delayed.
  • Ensure the safety of your pet and property. For example, get alerts if gates are open, or if there’s smoke, carbon monoxide, flooding water, or extreme temperatures.
  • Remotely adjust temperatures or lighting during the day and evening in the rooms your pet is located to ensure their continual comfort.

Don’t worry about the security sensors being set off by your pet – with Secur-Tek’s expert custom installation, you can rest easy in that the motion sensors can distinguish between your pet and intruders, (for pets up to 80 lbs.) so your furry friends can roam freely around the house without tripping an alert.
