11 Apr Smart Watch, Meet Smart Home Security
Apple Watches are more than just a fashion statement; they make various aspects of your life more convenient. Answering calls, checking email or listening to some throwback jams – it’s all possible, right there, on your wrist. Now you can add home security to the long list of smart watch functions you already enjoy. With an ASI Connect smart home security system and its paired Apple Watch app, your home’s security and your own peace of mind are within reach, no matter where you are.
Control your home’s locks, alarms, lights, garage door and thermostat settings directly from your watch. You can even check live video feed from any cameras installed as part of your customized smart home security system .
With ASI Connect, security alerts appear as notifications, so you’ll immediately be in the know. The apps for your smart phone and smart watch essentially allow you to have conversations via text message with your house. These real-time exchanges display important details at a glance and allow you to take action, if necessary. Unlike your kids, your home will never send one letter answers like “K.”
The ASI Connect smart watch app is easy to use, and is customized to match your home’s customized smart security system. All of this customization means your watch is perfectly tailored to the various smart features you’ve chosen for your abode.
Upon opening the app, you’ll immediately see the current status of your home. Questions like: “Did I turn the thermostat down?” “Did I arm the alarm system?” or the infamous “Did I close the garage door?” are answered in seconds. You can even set the system to alert you with a watch vibration, to alert you if you leave without securing some part of your home. Thanks to geo-service technology, this all takes place in a matter of seconds: the system will send a notification the instant it knows you’ve left, and with one tap on your watch it’s problem solved.
Of course, not sometimes the notifications come in the form of text messages or calls from your family. Your husband forgot his key, or your daughter forgot the code to the garage door – things happen. With ASI Connect, these issues are solved in seconds.

Don’t forget about the infinite possibilities that come with adding contact sensors to your smart home system – the status of windows, interior doors and cabinets can be displayed on smart watches too. Read more about contact sensors here.
ASI Connect on your Apple Watch, goes beyond home security and can simplify your life in many common situations.
Maybe Mom is stopping by to drop off that cookie sheet she borrowed, but everyone is out at your son’s soccer game. No problem: when she texts or calls to tell you she’s at the front door, you can disarm the alarm, let her in, then arm the system and lock the door when she leaves – all from your wrist!
Or, let’s say, you’re having a relaxing evening in, reading a book in your pajamas. It starts to get late. You’re getting a little chilly, you can’t see the text in the setting sun and you need to lock the front door – but you really don’t want to put the book down. The character you never suspected just revealed their true colors! With a few taps on your watch, the thermostat will be set, the lights will come on, your door will lock itself and you’ll be back to the thickening plot in no time.
Take your smart home security system to the next level with ASI Connect on your Smartphone and Apple Watch. Attain that extra peace of mind and convenience which all hardworking Hoosiers can appreciate.
Smart watch, it’s time to meet smart home security.
