Is the Total Connect Service good for apartments?

Last Updated: 11/13/2013
There are a number of factors you should consider when deciding if an interactive monitoring service is right for you.

First of all, what level of remote access control are you looking for? Regular remote devices, like wireless key fobs, give you basic control of arm/disarming your security system, and you can get that without having to use a service. The same goes for Z-Wave automation. The Tuxedo Touch is designed to communicate with all your Z-Wave home automated devices from a keypad.

However, the Total Connect Service gives you much broader control of your system. With Total Connect, you can arm/disarm your system, lock/unlock doors, and see live surveillance video feeds from any computer in the world with internet access, or by using your smartphone. Total Connect also gives you important alerts to keep you updated about your home or office security system. It all depends on what level of integration is going to work best for your needs.
