A mobile app is a computer program that is specifically designed to run on smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices. Smart phone apps have been making our lives easier for quite a while now. Everything from entertainment, organization, dating, communication, art, and home security are now at our finger tips. All you have to do is download the app of your choice in your app store and tap to open it! Out of all the apps we could talk about today, Protect America‘s SMART Connect will be our app of interest. As some of you might know, our SMART Connect app has been in use by thousands of customers for the past 6 years. It has a number of features that will help you and you family stay safe, not to mention a new feature that we recently added! Let’s take a closer look.


What Can It Do?

Control your entire home with the press of a button. Protect America’s amazing SMART Connect apps for Android devices and the iPhone puts home automation, energy management, and live video in your pocket! Controlling your home just got easier and a lot more fun. With this app, you can turn your lights on and off with our small appliance module. The Z-Wave appliance module can be used with small appliances and all types of lighting including incandescent, fluorescent, LED, Halogen, and Xenon. With the ability to control your lights from your phone, you can create the appearance of an occupied home when you’re away!

Additionally, the SMART Connect app can arm and disarm your home security system and lock your doors if you have our Z-Wave Deadbolt Lock. If you have video cameras, you can even check in on your home with a live stream of your video feed!


What’s New?

SMART connect has added Protect America‘s chat feature to the platform. Our chat feature is an aspect of customer support that aims to provide the convenience of speaking with a representative online instead of through the phone. At Protect America, our customer support staff is specially trained to help you with any type of issues and concerns you may have about your Protect America home security system. With technology advancing, we have sought new ways to connect with our customers. Now with the new chat feature, simply open the app on your phone and when you sign into your interactive account with the login, a small button labeled “Live Help” will appear from the right side. Simply tap this button to speak to a security expert in real time! Skip the phone call, and don’t bother logging onto a computer. Now you can reach us even faster with a touch of a button on your phone!


We are still adding features to our SMART Connect app as well as our line of products, so stay tuned for more updates about Protect America!
