INTERACTIVE BUSINESS SECURITY SYSTEMS
Praos Smart Security utilizes tamper-resistant cellular connection, wholly devoted to YOUR security system. Dependable technology that works even if your phone line, cable, broadband, or power goes down.
Our technology learns your business’s particular activity patterns and intelligently and speedily alerts you of unusual events such as the door left open after hours.
EXCLUSIVE USER CODES
Efficiently generate and terminate user codes. Give specific users exclusive codes so you can see who accesses the system at any given time. You have the ability to terminate any code in minutes right from your computer or tablet. No fuss, smart solutions.
ALERTS AND NOTIFICATIONS
Always be advised of important activity at your business location(s) at any time, not just in an emergency, with your own custom text, push notifications, and email alerts.
INTELLIGENT VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
Smart video cameras that coordinate with your security system. You can get an automatic video clip when the system is disarmed, a lock is unlocked, or an alarm is triggered. Live video feeds go directly to your smartphone or tablet and provide HD quality and great low light performance for clear videos.
We care about what is important to you so smarter video alerts are tailored to your needs. Distinguish people from animals and/or vehicles which enhances property security and awareness. Get a video notification if someone loiters at the door or a customer is waiting a long time.
Video surveillance tailored to your business, small or large, gives you access from anywhere so you can stay on top of what is going on NOW.
Access round the clock, HD quality, continuous recording with the Stream Video Recorder (SVR) which is bandwidth optimized so it won’t slow down your internet connection.
See who is at the door without leaving your desk with the Skybell HD Video Doorbell. The Praos Smart Security app allows you to speak to customers at the door from anywhere!

ENERGY MANAGEMENT & AUTOMATION
CONFIDENCE WITH CONNECTABILITY
Fully automate and connect your security, lights, locks, thermostats, video, and more for ease of use and peace of mind.
With Praos Smart Security you can save money and stay comfortable with responsive energy savings, location-based (geo-fence) automation, and personalized usage recommendations based on your business patterns.
Energy management at its best. Manage your location’s lights and control your smart thermostat’s temperature settings with automated schedules. Establish simple rules to have an added layer of smart automation based on your smart system following your business’s activity.
Have your thermostat automatically set back when the system is armed away, or pause if smoke or carbon monoxide is detected to limit the circulation of dangerous fumes. Now that's smart savings and safe living!
Want to avoid overpaying your utility company for energy on extremely hot or cold days?
We use real-time local weather data to adjust your temperature settings to save energy and money if outdoor temps spike or plummet.
One click adjustment on lights, thermostats, and system arming with scene selection from the office or while you’re away with complete control through your Smart Security app or any computer.
LOCK-OUT & ALERTS

You can also set a local lock-out so that others can’t adjust the thermostat.
