At ProTECHt, we make it our goal to provide more than just home security devices. We also offer our clients everything they need to get the smart home of their dreams or ensure that they have a security system that is so simple (and effective) that a child could operate it.
We want to make it easy for our clients to understand what options are out there. Endeavoring into home security and smart home technology can seem intimidating, but we are here to make the process easy. All of our technology seamlessly integrates so you can operate it all from your smartphone or tablet.
Below, you’ll find a list of some of the current products we offer as your smart home security installer in Indianapolis. Because technology is always improving and evolving, our products might change in order to provide you with the best of the best. Be sure to give us a call to discuss what we can do to make your home safer, smarter, or a little bit of both!
Smart Security Services
As a smart home security provider, all of the products below can be controlled, armed, or disarmed from your smartphone or tablet. These products are able to be seamlessly integrated into one another and are designed to limit the number of false dispatch calls and false alarms. You can learn more about controlling a home security system when you schedule your free consultation with ProTECHt!
Door And Window Alarm Sensors
Door and window alarms are a great way to understand if areas of your home are being accessed. The system communicates with your control panel using wireless frequency. When the mounted magnet moves away from the sensor, such as when a window is slid open, a signal is transmitted and you will be alerted.
Motion detecting technology has been around for almost 70 years and uses a number of technologies, including microwave and infrared, to detect disruptions in the surrounding area. If motion is detected, you will receive an alert on your control panel based on your settings. To show how far this security technology has come, some detectors have a pet-immune feature that can tolerate animals up to roughly 55 pounds before alerting you.
Glass Break Sensors
Most glass break detectors work by using an audio microphone to pick up the tell-tale sound of glass breaking. Glass break sensors are incredibly important for home or business security.
While a window sensor can tell if a window has been opened, only a glass break sensor can determine if someone is trying to break in the old-fashioned way, by smashing a window.
Medical Alert/Panic Buttons
Medical alert buttons are ideal for those who have a health condition that can cause the need for medical attention at any time or for people who might be at risk of falling and being unable to recover. These buttons can be worn around the neck like a necklace and will call an ambulance to the home simply by holding the button.
Recessed Door Sensor
This device is an alternative to the magnetic door sensors we discussed above. This device fits discreetly in the door frame and will send an alert if the door is opened when armed. When choosing a door alarm, it is important you are choosing a top-rated product. Some of these products are over-sensitive and can go off with a heavy wind or as a door contracts in cold weather. High-quality products will have the right amount of sensitivity to limit false alarms.
Key Chain Remote
This home security remote can be attached to your keychain and allows you to arm or disarm your home security system with the press of a button. This is the perfect option for homeowners who feel more comfortable using a real button as opposed to a smartphone and gives you the control capabilities you need without any extra bells and whistles to worry about.
Avoid A Disaster
While the above can alert you to potential intruders, there are other dangers that can face your home. Read below to see a few of the disaster-avoidance devices we offer so that you can watch out for certain dangers.
This sensor is constantly monitoring wet and dry conditions as well as temperature. If something is out of the ordinary, it will send an alert to your smartphone. This can detect water leaks or floods and will alert you if the temperature dips below a certain temperature.
You likely already have a smoke detector in your home. However, this isn’t your father’s smoke detector. Most smoke detectors only detect smoke and will sound an alarm if smoke is detected. These simple devices are vital for saving lives if a fire breaks out while you are home.
However, what happens if you are not home? The smoke and heat detector we offer here at ProTECHt can alert the monitoring center when activated and the fire department if needed. It can also send an alert to your preferred contacts, such as next door neighbors who might be affected if your home is on fire.
Carbon Monoxide Sensor
All homes and buildings should have a carbon monoxide detector. Carbon monoxide leaks are nearly impossible to detect without a sensor. Our smart carbon monoxide detectors can send alarms about high levels of carbon monoxide as well as alert you if the device has a low battery or has been tampered with.
Smart Home Automation Products
Smart home technology has come a long way since the clap-on, clap-off light was invented in the mid-1990s. These days, you can automate almost any feature in your home from your thermostat to your blinds and more. Below, you’ll find a few of our most popular smart home products that take convenience to the next level.
Smart thermostats let you save money on your energy bills by giving you a fret-free way to run your heating and cooling system at maximum efficiency. Simply create your settings and trust that the smart thermostat is doing its job to keep the space comfortable.
Smart Garage Door Opener
You’re probably thinking you don’t need this device if you already have a garage door opener attached to the visor in your car. However, this is more than a button you press when you’re pulling up to your garage.
The smart garage door opener is an interactive system that is integrated into your home security system. It allows you to monitor your garage door from your smartphone at any time. That means if you sit down at your desk at work and suddenly realize you forgot to close the garage, it’s no problem. Just open your app and close it. The system will even alert you if the garage has been left open for some time and will automatically close the garage when the security system is armed.
Smart Lighting Control
Once you live with smart lighting, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. With simple plug-in light modules, you can regulate the lights in your home with the touch of a button. You can even create a daily schedule for your lights which can help to decrease energy bills and increase security. Like all of the products on this page, the smart lighting options we offer can be integrated into your smart home system.
Automated deadbolts are a simple way to keep your home safe. We offer smart locks from Schlage, Yale, and Kwikset, some of the most trusted brands in home security. These locks allow you to unlock your home from your smartphone or with a keypad.
Best of all, you can change the entry code from your smartphone and give anyone who has the code access to your home. This is a great option for people who rent their homes out on Airbnb or with a similar service. You can quickly change the code for each new person who stays in your home.
Home Security Cameras
Surveillance cameras in and around your home can help you keep an eye on your property even when you’re not there. While the other smart home equipment on this page can alert you if someone is trying to break in or loitering on your property, cameras are the only way to actually see what is happening.
With smart home security cameras, you can have recorded footage of your home that can be accessed at any time and you can view a live feed of the cameras if you simply want to check in on everything. Like all of these devices, the smart home cameras integrate easily with the rest of your home security equipment.
Wifi Video Doorbell
Quickly becoming one of the most popular smart home security devices, a video doorbell allows you to have eyes on your porch at all times. It can alert you if someone approaches your door but does not ring the bell and you can talk to and see whoever is at the door right from your smartphone.
You can also see who is at the door before you open it, allowing you to choose to answer or ignore the door at your comfort level.
Outdoor Wifi Cameras
With crystal-clear recording, the outdoor wireless security cameras we offer here at ProTECHt are durable, weatherproof, and can be used anywhere around your home or commercial property. These home security cameras record in color and have “owl vision” that can see up to 40 feet away at night. You can choose to set up alerts so you know if someone is on your property at night, or you can utilize them as simple recording devices which you can later review if an incident happens on your property.
Indoor Wifi Cameras
Some people want interior cameras as well as exterior. We are happy to offer in-home security cameras so you can keep an eye on what’s happening inside of your home. This is a great option if you have a child home with a nanny or you have older children who are by themselves after school. You can set up alerts for motion detection while you’re at work or out of town and you can access the cameras from your smartphone, tablet, or computer so you can always monitor your home.
