Want Your House to Text You When There May be Trouble? There's an App for That(November 10, 2009)
LAWRENCE, Kan., Nov. 10, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Protection One, Inc. (Nasdaq:PONE), one of the nation's leading providers of security systems to homes and businesses, has developed an iPhone(TM) application that allows users to access their security panels and receive real-time security updates from their iPhone or iPod touch(R).
With the eSecure application from Protection One, users can confirm that the security system is armed while on vacation or turn off the alarm while at work to let in cleaning crews and other contractors. When armed, the eSecure system will send text or e-mail messages when motion is detected, a particular door is opened, in the event of a flood, if high carbon-monoxide levels are recorded and even when a liquor or medicine cabinet, safe or other sensitive area is accessed.
This technology is designed to offer peace of mind to users whenever they are outside of the home or business via real-time wireless access. Protection One is the first national provider of monitored security to offer this application.
"No one wants to spend a vacation or business trip worrying about leaving the garage door open or if the security alarm is set," says Protection One President and CEO Richard Ginsburg. "This application puts security at your fingertips and keeps you connected, even when you're away."
The application maintains safety and security with multiple layers of password protection. A standard Protection One keypad code is required for access to the eSecure keypad, which is neither stored on the device nor visible to anyone looking at the screen.
The eSecure iPhone application, which is free with the eSecure service subscription and available for download now from Protection One at the iPhone Apps Store, is compatible with all iPhone and iPod touch devices. Working in tandem with a Protection One security system, the iPhone application is customizable to deliver peace of mind every time you leave the home or office.
