According to experts in the home security industry, the latest trend for homeowners is a fully interactive security system.

Imagine the convenience of disarming your alarm system while sitting in your driveway, or checking in on your pet or teenagers while you’re out of town?

One such system is that produced by  Reliance Protectron’s new interactive servicesthrough www.myprotectron.com.

In addition to Protectron’s state-of-the-art monitoring services, with the cutting-edge colour touch-screen interactive Go Control system or other comparable technology, you can monitor your system from anywhere via the web or your smartphone, including arming and disarming it remotely, says Patrice De Luca, vice-president of marketing and business development for Reliance Protectron Security Services.

“Its powerful functionalities make this the most advanced home-security technology available.”

The myprotectron.com interactive home security services lets you have full control over your system with a wealth of monitoring tools.

For example, you can get real-time updates on doors and windows, watch live and recorded video feeds, and review “event histories” for when your kids get home from school or when cleaning or maintenance crews come and go.

You can even receive live weather reports 24/7 to gauge if an increase in home temperature is required from your integrated energy management system.

All this control is accessible by logging in to your myprotectron.com account from your personal computer, BlackBerry, Android, iPhone app or any web-enabled device.

The Go Control system requires no landline or Internet connection.

Instead, the signal from your security system travels wirelessly using a dedicated, encrypted and secure connection. When trouble strikes, it interacts with Protectron’s monitoring centres to send out an immediate response.

So unlike traditional security alarm systems that rely on a telephone line, it works in every home and can’t be defeated by a burglar snipping or tampering with the wire.
