Keep Eyes On Your Property

By controlling your Fresno home security system with your phone, you can get a real-time video feed of your residence and surroundings when cameras are turned on. Explore live views from all your security cameras straight from your cell phone, and keep short video snapshots or still images, and playback more extensive segments as desired.

If you want to get more technical, you can allow geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. Now, you can have your home prepare itself by activating locks, shutting off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you leave the driveway. Upon your return from your long day on the job, your home will come to life by automatically raising the garage door and disarming your alarm.
