Home Alarm Systems Harness Power Of Smart Phone

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:12 PM CDT

Have you been thinking about upgrading your home alarm system?  They’ve come a long way since the alarm systems that simply notified your alarm monitoring company.  Today’s alarm systems have evolved into smart homes integrating control of your lighting, climate control, even your irrigation system.

Randy Mutscher of Buda invited us to his home to show us how he controls and monitors his home remotely from a smart phone.

Mutscher has a system by Vivint that allows him to check his security cameras, adjust his smart thermostat and use appliance modules to control lighting and other appliances.  He can also receive alerts via email or text message if the garage door is open or there’s some unexpected activity.

Smart homes are on the rise around the world.  About 90 million homes will be automated by 2017 according to ABI Research.
