Sequel Technologies Security Systems


We are excited to announce that Digital Smart Homes now offers security systems by Sequel Technologies for residential and commercial applications. When integrated with Control4 Automation, the security system can be tied in with lighting, motorized blinds and shades, whole home audio/video systems, door bell and much more. Imagine being able to activate your security system or trigger a panic alarm from any light switch in your home or office by simply tapping the light switch a given number of times. Arm and disarm your security system from anywhere in the world and even unlock or lock your front door at the same time from a single interface. Lighting scenes can automatically be initiated when the home is armed and in “away mode” making it seem like someone is at home. It can even turn on audio zones automatically during the day. If the alarm gets tripped, have all the lights turn on to maximum, sound the alarm through the siren and the home audio system at full blast, trigger the outside lights to flash on and off, have a text or email broadcasted to your neighbours and yourself and have your shades open up. The possibilities are endless.
