One app to control lights, locks, thermostats, video cameras and remotely monitor and manage your home security system using your mobile device.
Vector Security, the leading provider of intelligent security solutions tailored to the needs of its customers, recently launches the Vector Security mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
Exclusive to Vector Security customers and powered by Alarm.com, the Vector Security mobile app uses award-winning technology and cloud services to power security and smart home solutions…all from a single platform.
“Today’s busy lifestyle, coupled with technology advancements, has created an increased demand for home automation and mobile security,” said Art Miller, Vice President of Marketing for Vector Security. “This app was created in response to that need. By downloading the app onto their Apple or Android device, our customers will experience the convenience and ease of managing not only their home security system, but also a range of home automation solutions that fit their needs, all from one app.”
Customers will benefit from the convenience of controlling a range of home automation and security solutions using the Vector Security mobile app, including:
Demand for On-the-Go Home Automation Solutions
Demand for home automation and mobile solutions continues to grow rapidly. Spending on smart home systems and services in the U.S. hit $18B in 2014 and will more than double to $39B by 2019, according to Strategy Analytics' Smart Home Strategies latest forecast.
Further, consumers want a simple, intuitive way to interact with the devices that control their smart home systems. A recent Coldwell Banker study indicates buyers want to control their home from their smart phone – 62 percent of sales associates surveyed are seeing more buyers interested in controlling their home technology through their smart phone or tablet now than they were just two to five years ago.
“This represents a huge opportunity for on-the- go solutions and reflects the growing demand for mobility,” Miller added. “With the Vector Security mobile app, we are poised to meet our customers’ needs now and into the future. Our feature-rich app is the one app they’ll need to control all of their smart home systems.”
Additionally, according to a trend report from Cisco, there are more connected devices than there are people on the planet today and by 2020, there will be more than 50 billion connected devices.
“While there are other home automation and security apps on the market, ours offers the convenience of controlling multiple features – alarm, lights, locks, cameras, thermostats – all from a single platform rather than several disparate or DYI apps,” Miller said. Plus, because our app is tied to your security system as the hub, you can be assured it is safe.”
