It’s never been a better time to get connected.
Honeywell’s Home Automation Server can create an infrastructure that allows you to interconnect your computers and gaming devices throughout the home, multiplying their effectiveness. And by networking printers, scanners and sharing files across a home network, you can reduce the number of devices you need to purchase while giving everyone in the home access to the system.

You can get a good night’s sleep—knowing that the Home Automation Server will be up all night.
Security has never been smarter, because the server can actually take intelligent actions based upon the type of event occurring. Should an intruder attempt to break in, sensors not only alert you, but can turn on inside and outside lights to scare him away. This is often enough to send a burglar running. If a break-in does occur and your phone is off the hook, your system can seize the line and alert you and the authorities. In the event of an emergency, your Honeywell security system can even "call" you, your central monitoring station, the police or anyone else you specify.
The Home Automation Server gives you the ability to view cameras around your home or on your computer anywhere over the Internet, with the assurance that your privacy is protected with the highest level of data security. Monitor a sleeping baby, screen visitors at your entranceway, keep an eye on vulnerable areas like swimming pools or view activity occurring around the exterior or interior of your home.
You can easily create an on and off or rotating security schedule complete with lights and televisions to simulate a "lived-in" look when you’re away.
When a visitor rings a doorbell, all home phones can ring automatically. Simply use the phone to talk to the visitor and dial a code to unlock the door. The outdoor camera can even send a picture to all the televisions in your home so you can see who’s at your entranceway.
Televisions can be integrated to provide an added level of security—broadcasting pictures to any screen in your home. Checking on the baby is as easy as changing the channel. Should you hear a noise in the middle of the night, you can view any location inside or outside your home on any TV screen from the safety of your bedroom. You can even view these cameras over your office computer for added peace of mind.
