Honeywell Total Connect Security, Temp and Control App for iPad
Total Connect 2.0 now offers remote services for users with the iPad and iPad mini.
February 17, 2014 by Rachel Cericola

Honeywell’s Total Connect app has been tweaked a bit since it first launched. Now the latest update will make it available to more users.

The Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 app is now available for use with the iPad and the iPad mini.

Honeywell Total Connect can put the power of security, lights, thermostats, locks and cameras right into your hand. It also makes all of those systems available remotely, so you can monitor and control parts of your home from anywhere in the world. Users can even create customized scenes to personalize and automate their environment.

Also worth noting is that this app can be set up to deliver email and video notifications to alert the user to certain events (the kids are home!) or emergencies.

“We’re incredibly excited about our latest update to the Honeywell Total Connect app,” said Alan Stoddard, senior marketing director of Honeywell Security Products Americas. “It brings all of the capability of the web and puts it into the mobile devices that are now users’ primary interface to their connected homes.”

In addition to the iPad and iPad mini, Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 also currently works with the iPhone and iPod touch, as well as Android and BlackBerry devices.

I am about to start construction on a new house at my ranch. We will leave it unattended at times since we live elsewhere part of the year.

Question:  What do I tell my builder to do to future-proof the new house?

Issues:
1.I am concerned that my builder is not that tech-savvy and is directing me to a company that will sell me their technology and that it will be out of date in 3 years.

2.The security must be done upon occupancy, but we want to be able to tie it into lighting, themostats and other systems when the industries’ ultimately merge the technologies. I don’t want to invest in a BetaMax and regret it.

3.What should be hard-wired? The 10,000 SF Victorian house has 3 stories plus a large wine cellar so I am concerned about wireless working well.

Not a desirable solution.  Honeywell suck you in for monthly fees.
