We at Powerhouse hate crime. Our passion is to protect our clients and their homes and businesses. With over 20 years of experience in the security industry, we know what approaches and products work and what solutions should be avoided. Allow us to leverage our expertise to give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Peace of Mind
Whether you are home or away, the custom designed state of the art Powerhouse Security system can provide a blanket of security, watching over your home, possessions and most importantly your family.
Protection and Connection
Your Home security and connection system allows you to remotely arm and disarm from a smartphone or computer. You can instantly check status of your doors and windows and look at video from anywhere in the world.
Custom designed system with maximum effect
We bring our 20 years of security experience to the forefront when we consult with clients and design your state of the art system. We constantly monitor crime trends and statistics such as where thieves will likely breach your home or business in order to maximize the effectiveness of your security system.
None of us like to think about it and we at Powerhouse do not like to scare people into getting a security system, but these crimes do exist and they probably always will. According to the Office of the Attorney General in CA, burglary increased 2.6% from 2010-2011 and the 2011 property crime rate is 612.9 per 100,000 population. We hate that crime exists but you can take measures against it happening to you and your family.
Video Surveillance Solutions
If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video must be priceless. Your Video Surveillance system can have multiple indoor and outdoor cameras to record activities based on events that you program or you can view the cameras live from almost anywhere. We also give you the ability to have pictures sent to you via email or text so you can instantly see what is happening at your home or business. Remotely verify if an alarm is a false alarm or an actual break in and help police catch the thief.
Powerhouse Security VIDEO MONITORING
Expanded CCTV Solutions
When a customer is looking for a large number of cameras, often a digital video recorder is used along with software and mobile phone apps. This allows for an unlimited number of cameras for a home or business along with the ability to view live from your smartphone. You can also review stored video and save clips to your computer as evidence. Jobs big or small we have something that will fit your needs and budget.
Your video solution can include smartphone viewing to take your home or business connection to the next level. The system has the ability to record video on motion, based on an event like the front door opening or on time schedules. You can have an email or a text sent to you when a clip has been recorded. If you have ever wondered what your kids are doing at home while you are away or you want to make sure your business is open on time simply hit live view on your phone, tablet or computer.
The image sensor was voted one of the top security products of 2012. It is an indoor motion detector and camera all in one. The small size and discreet appearance allows placement anywhere in the home. Using the image sensor with your home connection system means that you can have pictures emailed to you when an alarm goes off to catch a thief in the act. You can also get still images whenever you want in order to keep tabs on your home or business.
Multiple Camera Video Verification
Your Powerhouse security and home connection system enables you to see multiple cameras at the same time. This will save you time and give you extra peace of mind if you are looking in on the babysitter, housekeeper, contractor or Realtor that may be showing your home. Verify that an alarm is from a break in and not a false alarm by viewing live video from a remote location.
Automation for home or business
Energy Automation from Powerhouse allows you to have full control over the functions of your home or business. This allows you to create temperature and lighting schedules that coordinate with time of day or when you come home, leave for work and go to bed. For business, you can get alerts if your employees change the thermostat. The goal is to connect you to your home or business, create efficiency and save you money. Imagine your home knowing when you arrived, turns on outside lights for you, sets thermostat to your liking, all with one swipe on your phone. Awesome.
ENERGY MANAGEMENT AND HOME AUTOMATION
Control Lights, Thermostats, Locks and more
Through the app on your android, iphone, tablets, ipad, laptop or computer you can control your thermostats, turn lights on and off, set schedules, lock and unlock doors, and much more.
Save Money and Energy
Make your home or business "green" with savings and less energy consumption. It is a true win/win.
Thermostat control and scheduling
Change temperature, receive alerts when someone changes the thermostat, get notification if temperature drops too low, create a schedule based on time of day or when you arrive home. All from a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Lighting solutions for business and home
Allows you to create lighting solutions based on activity or time of day schedules. Want the outside lights to turn on when you are coming home late at night? No problem. Keep the storefront lights on for part of the night? Do that too. Dim the living room lights without getting up from the couch? Easy. Imagine it and we can make it happen.
The Powerhouse security and connection panel is equipped with the latest technology that allows two way communication through 3G without traditional land lines. There are more uses that can be mentioned but here are just a few customer favorites: arming the system after the kids leave because they forgot, disarm the system so a contractor can gain access to your home or business, make sure your wife gets home safely or make sure the garage door got closed. If you can think it we can do it.
Connection with family, home and business
The custom designed connection system is capable of amazing things. The 3G radio in your panel allows you to communicate with your home or business from an app on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Check in on the babysitter or make sure your contractor is busy completing your project. Look at your employees while you are on vacation.
There is an app for that
Install the app on your smartphone or tablet and you will have instant access to what is happening at your home or business. Check status of your system, remotely arm/disarm, look at the history of events and many other features.
History of events
Running a home or business takes a lot of effort. Did your kids tell you they got home at 11PM and you want to confirm that- look at your history of events. This will also allow the business owner to make sure employees are getting to work on time without making them punch in. There are many uses that will ease your mind and help life run smoothly.
Remote arm and disarm
If you ever forget to arm your system and you happen to be in Tahoe skiing, the app allows you to remotely arm your home or business with a swipe of your finger. Talk about easy.
