Alarm and Video
One popular application is monitoring and operating electronic door locks. When your child gets home from school and unlocks the door, the VH360 system can send you a text message or an email. Every family member is assigned a unique door unlock code, so you know who has arrived home. You can view a still image or live footage from your computer or smartphone to be certain that your kids are home safe and didn’t bring unwelcome guests. You can also receive live footage on demand from inside your home to check in on the babysitter while you are out. For these kinds of security and monitoring applications, you’d use a powered door lock, a video camera and perhaps a motion detector, all of which work with VH360 through Z-Wave, the interoperable standard in wireless control. How many of these devices you need to connect will depend on the size of your house and what you want to accomplish.
