Turn Lights On or Off

Schedule your lights on or off when you want, or set certain lights to turn on or off with system arming and disarming. Lighting control helps make your home look occupied when you’re away to discourage intruders. Plus, it's a great way to set the ambience you choose for when you arrive home.

Control Door Locks

Lock your home from your office or while you’re at the kids' soccer practice with remote Z-Wave® enabled door locks.

Check Your Home and Receive Video Clips

View live feed from your home anytime, anywhere. With Bay Alarm Connect™ (formerly Total Connect) Video, you can receive a 10-second video clip that shows a triggered event you set. See when your kids come home from school or when a package is delivered.

Schedule Automatic Changes

Set entire scenarios that happen automatically, like a "Goodnight" scene that locks the doors and turns the 
lights off. Or a "We're Home" schedule that turns the living room and porch lights on and off, to make it seem like you’re home.

Control your Thermostat

Z-Wave® enabled thermostats can automatically adjust every time you arm or disarm your security system. You can design customized scenes and schedules for comfort and energy savings, or control your thermostats on-the-go via your mobile phone or smartwatch.

Why can't I buy a residential security system over the phone or online?

Security systems shouldn’t be one size 
fits all. That’s why we insist on sending 
one of our security experts to your property instead of just showing up to install. 
This way you end up with a customized security system that suits you and your property’s needs.
