Home Automation: Control Temperature and Cameras Remotely

Originally posted on 01 March 2020

While some kinds of home automation aren’t to everyone’s liking, there are other kinds of home automation that are really worth considering. You may not be comfortable with a virtual assistant in your home, but how about remote access to your home’s temperature and security system in Toronto? Let’s take a look into home automation and how it works!

How Home Automation Works

When you use Engineered Alarm Solutions’ method of home automation, controlling the different systems in your home becomes easy as pie. Using a smart device – like a cell phone or tablet – you can simply access your home systems through an app. This app allows you to connect to your home systems over wifi or data. That means anywhere you can connect to the internet, you can have control over your home.

Temperature Control

Having remote access to your home’s temperature is useful in a lot of ways. The most universal example is when you go on vacation. If you intend to leave the house for a week or longer, it can save you a lot of money to turn the temperature down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit in winter. If it’s summer, turning the AC off will have the same effect. Trying to keep your home at the ideal temperature when you’re not there takes a lot of electricity and inflates your bill unnecessarily.

However, coming home to a house that’s icy cold or sweltering hot is not anyone’s ideal scenario. That’s especially true when you consider that coming home means taking some time to unpack or cook dinner. With the help of home automation, you can easily turn your heater or AC back to its normal temperature the day before you return home. That guarantees you come home to a comfortable and idyllic interior, perfect for unpacking or cooking without needing a fan on or a blanket over your shoulders.

Remote Security Access

Remote security access is arguably even more important than temperature control. When you have remote access to your security, you can get an alert on your phone anytime something suspicious happens. If your alarm goes off, you will instantly be notified that there may be an intruder in your home.

This allows you to look through your security cameras right from your phone or tablet to see what’s going on. If it turns out it’s just your friend who forgot the code for the alarm, you can turn the alarm off no problem. However, if someone has broken in, you can quickly alert the police and have your home taken care of while you’re out of range.

Plus, having access to your security cameras from a distance allows all kinds of monitoring. Worried about how your pets are faring when you’ve been gone all day? Check in on them and feel instantly reassured. Want to make sure your teen got home from school without a hitch? Check in with the security system and banish your worries about their safety.

If you have any questions about home automation, give us a call at Engineered Alarm Solutions. We offer home automation solutions and we personalize them for your individual needs.

Proper Security Is So Important For Peace Of Mind.

A Great Job! to the team at Engineered Alarm Solutions for the work performed at my home. From top management to the installers, the team delivered an efficient and professional service. The installers were on time, left the grounds spotless and provided all the support necessary to operate the system. Management provided recommendations that were spot on, and I very much appreciated the honesty and knowledge provided, can't get much better than that.

We are religious sisters and about two years ago we needed to protect our home because our neighbourhood is not very safe. We leave in a big house with too many windows and doors. The Priest from our Church recommended us to call Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) because they have done the security systems at the Church. We called EAS for an estimate. They came to check our home and explained to us all the options we had and provided an estimate. We also had other estimate from a different...


After moving into a new home, we needed a reliable security system to keep our family safe. We contacted Gabriel for a full alarm system, home automation, and security cameras. He met with us in person to ensure we understood the services and how everything worked. As an engineer by trade, Gabriel gave us comfort in his expertise and superior knowledge in the field. No sales pitch, just honest work and guidance on how to best protect our home. We now have a top of the line system, apps installed...


From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

Would definitely recommend using their...

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home. When we purchased the home, it came with a pre-existing security system that was frustrating to use, had recurrent false alarm issues, and we needed to find a new company to install a reliable and better quality system. Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
