An ADT Command system installed by Bonsall Security & Automation can support the best in home automation for your home or small business in Omaha, NE. Home automation can actually enhance the security of any premise, not just provide extra convenience. Did you forget to close the overhead garage door, or lock the front door? With ADT's Control app for Command, you can do that from anywhere in the world where you have internet access. And, of course, turning lights on from your phone when you get home can ensure that you don't walk into a dark house. But these are largely convenience uses. What are the advantages to integrating these items into a security system?
Lights and Appliances
Overhead Garage Doors
With the ADT Control app, you can define a geo-fence around your home or business in Omaha, NE, and the app can notify you if you left home and forgot to arm your security system, lock your doors, or close your garage overhead doors. And, as Control can keep track of the smartphones of your other family members too, it doesn't alert you if someone remains home.
Plus, you can also set up additional geo-fences for specific phones, to provide additional functionality. Have a geo-fence around your work to automatically adjust your home's thermostat to your desired temperature, so that your house is at your desired temperature by the time you arrive.
Make a Scene
It's bedtime. You have to make sure that all your doors are locked, that the garage overhead doors are down, that the lights are off, the shades are drawn, the thermostat is at your desired sleeping temperature, and that the security system is on. With ADT's Command system, and its support for automation scenes, you can do all of that with a couple of quick button presses, right on the Command touchscreen, or even from the Control app on your phone.
Just select the associated scene (for instance, Sleep), and it will run all the scenarios needed. Front door unlocked? It will automatically lock it. Back door already locked? It leaves it alone. One overhead door open, and one already closed? It will only send the command to close the one that's open. Some of your Lutron shades open, and others closed? It will only close the ones that are open. Same for your lights and thermostat. And, of course, it will arm your Command system for the night.
Attract Wanted Attention
The last thing an intruder wants is attention to their presence. At night, an intruder can use the dark of night to aid in their escape, even once the police are on the scene. But, you can make that more difficult for the intruder and easier for the police by raising all the shades in your house and turning on all your indoor and outdoor lights.
A Matter of Life Safety
In the event of a fire or high levels of carbon monoxide, your ADT Command system can utilize the installed home automation devices to assist with escaping your house, and help mitigate the spread of smoke and carbon monoxide-laden air.
If your ADT Command system has smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors, combined with thermostats, in-wall switches for your ceiling fans, and even lamp modules for your room fans, in the event of a life safety alarm, Command can instruct these air moving items to shut down, helping to minimize the spread of smoke or carbon monoxide.
And, with controlled door locks and lights, you can have Command automatically unlock all doors, and turn on all lights in the event of a life safety alarm. This not only can make it easier for family members to escape the house, but can also help first responders in assisting and locating trapped or missing family members.

Vacate the Premises
When you go on vacation, or otherwise are away from your house or business in Omaha, NE for an extended period of time, it's always best not to advertise that you are away. You should arrange for someone to pick up your mail or newspaper, but what about other, more mundane tasks that should be attended to more than once per day?
While you've been able to get plug-in timers for lamps for decades, and even modern timers can randomize on and off times, outdoor lights can be trickier. And what about raising and lowering your window shades while you're gone?
With ADT Command, you can raise your Lutron shades in the morning, lower them in the evening, set your outside lights to turn on at sunset, and set your inside lights to come on once the blinds are closed, and turn off at a random time near bedtime. For anyone who might be scoping out your house, these features can make your house appear occupied, even when you're out of the country. No neighbor needed (but still have the mail and paper deliveries suspended!).
