You’ve decided to invest in a Honeywell security system for one reason or another. Whether it’s to keep your home safe from outside invaders or to monitor potential threats such as fire or carbon monoxide, the truth is that your system can do so much more. 

To help you take advantage of your system and all of the benefits it offers, we’ve put together a list of features you should be aware of.

Connect your devices - One of the coolest features of your Honeywell security system is the Tuxedo Touch. This device allows you to control and monitor all aspects of your security system, but you can also connect your devices to your system. Have your system installer show you how to connect your smartphone, laptop, tablet, or other web-enabled device so you can have complete control. Once you’re connected, you can set up automation, start video monitoring, adjust settings to conserve energy, and keep your family and property safe.

Save money and energy - While your Honeywell system is designed to be a security system, it will also save you a lot of coin. With automation features such as light and thermostat adjustment and shade control, you’ll save money on your energy bills, which means your next vacation will come that much sooner. And who doesn’t want to walk into a home that has the perfect temperature and lighting at the end of the day?

Use the power of your voice - Would you like to manage your security system with just your voice? Enjoy having the ability to see video, control your lights, locks, garage door, and more by simply speaking to your system. With your Honeywell system, installation is easy, there’s no hassle or mess, and you’ll enjoy plenty of ways to live a safer, smarter, more comfortable life.

Enjoy 24/7 access - Your system has a wireless connection, which means it will continue to function even if the power goes out or if a line is accidentally cut. If you’re out of the country and there’s a security breach, the central security office will be in touch with you in minutes and can send the authorities ASAP. You’ll no longer have to worry about your home, your kids, elderly parents, or your property while you’re away. If you feel the need to check on things while you’re away, you’ll have 24-hour access to all the features of your system via your web-enabled device.

Turn your home into an entertainment center - Your Honeywell system can do so much more than keep your family secure, it can entertain you! And we don’t mean by watching the video footage all day. When you integrate your Honeywell system with popular home entertainment systems from providers like Crestron, Control 4, Lutron, RadioRA2, Savant, Universal Remote Control, or Key Digital, you’ll go from regular old movie night to a full-on cinematic experience. And the best part? It’s possible to create your own home theater with the touch of a button!
