ACCESS CONTROL & SMART ENTRY LOCKS
You no longer have to leave your key under the potted plant or worry that you left the garage door open. With Praos Smart Security, you can remotely lock your door and close the garage, and get a reminder notification if you forget. All from our award winning smart home security app.
Create unique lock codes for each user, whether that be family members or service providers, and set a schedule to control when codes can be used. You can limit access by day and time, so you’re always in control of access to your home.
As the account administrator, you can create and disable codes at any time, by simply clicking a button, so there’s no need or added cost to rekey or change your locks.
Reduce false alarms by setting your security system to automatically disarm when a valid lock code is entered.
One click adjustment on lights, thermostats, garage door closing, and system arming with scene selection from home or while you’re away with complete control through your Smart Security app or any computer.
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.
LOCK-OUT & ALERTS
