Rogers Smart Home Monitoring. "Since we launched a year and a half ago, our
customers continue to discover new system features that keep their homes and
families secure while helping them better manage their daily lives for
ultimate peace of mind."
Rogers uses an established IP-based dual network connection to provide more
than security protection of your home. The system remotely monitors everything
together from water leaks, carbon monoxide levels, cameras, lighting,
appliances and thermostat temperatures, and allows customers to customize
automation rules to their needs. So whether a customer is able to detect a
water leak early and prevent flooding in their basement, come home to a warm
house every day by timing the thermostat through their smartphone, or receive
an alert on their smartphone when their kids have arrived home from school,
Smart Home Monitoring offers customers a truly connected home experience.
At the heart of the system is an easy-to-use touchpad that provides quick,
one-touch access to home automation apps, multimedia apps for photos, traffic,
weather and sports, and home security functions. When an alarm occurs, the
touchpad instantly connects with the Rogers Central Monitoring Station, a
24/7, real-time monitoring service provided by certified security experts with
over twenty years of experience in security, monitoring and emergency services.
More key benefits of the system include:
-- Real-time alerts sent via text and email
