A home monitoring solution from Verizon

When we think of a home network, we usually think of a super-fast Internet connection for our computers and tablets, or maybe a more reliable HDTV service. But as high-speed networks find their way into more and more households, there is something else we can start thinking about: home automation.

Home automation can mean many things to many people but two modern-day homeowner objectives stand out: security and energy conservation. Wouldn’t it be great if we could use our new high-speed networks to improve family safety and reduce our energy bills? The Home Monitoring and Control system from Verizon promises to do just that.

Whether you are looking for outside monitoring, a playroom camera, door and window sensors, or just a way to track energy consumption, Verizon’s Home Monitoring and Control system has a solution that fits your needs. Everything is tied into Verizon’s FiOS network and can be controlled and monitored through a password-protected web site.

Verizon’s equipment offerings include everything from simple appliance switches to a home security starter kit to a full-blown entry and energy monitoring system. If you’re not sure what you need, then Verizon’s Home Monitoring and Control Advisor will ask you a few simple questions and recommend an equipment package that it thinks will best suits your needs. Alternatively, you can choose from a number of custom packages or from the a la carte equipment menu.

Once you have purchased your starter kit or other equipment, you then enroll in Verizon’s $9.99 per month remote access plan, which will allow you to control and check in on your monitoring equipment from virtually anywhere.

Imagine the possibilities: you can finally track individual appliances, noting which ones are costing you the most money; you can remotely switch lights on and off so the house doesn’t appear empty; and you can monitor the inside and outside of your home from any computer and even your smartphone!

Verizon’s Home Monitoring and Control system promises complete peace of mind. You can even set alerts, so you receive an e-mail or text message if something out of the ordinary happens; and you can let someone into the house in an emergency by opening password-activated door locks.

Home networks can mean so much more than a faster Internet connection and a better TV picture. Verizon’s Home Monitoring and Control shows you the possibilities!

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
