Technology in the home is changing quickly. For example, today’s security systems can sound alarms to alert you about carbon monoxide, smoke and fire, and intruders. Systems also feature a variety of home automation components designed to give homeowners remote control over various systems and devices. OmniGuard Security offers full-service systems with additional home automation features at rates that are comparable to the monthly costs that the big security companies charge for their most basic systems.
When it comes to Pacific Northwest alarm systems, OmniGuard Security takes technology seriously. We believe every residence and business should have a security alarm system and automated control at their fingertips. We think what we’ve got to offer is pretty different than what most of the other security companies have to offer. We’re also a local Portland security company that cares about our community.
What is Home Automation?
OmniGuard Security residential systems, powered by Alarm.com, give homeowners the ability to monitor cameras and motion detectors, adjust home temperature and lights from their computer or smartphone, and arm or disarm their home systems remotely. The ability to control systems in your home remotely and control your thermostat more efficiently when you are not home may result in significant savings in energy bills. Some home automation features may require additional equipment; however, most of our customers find the costs to be nominal when compared to the benefits and return on investment gained.
