How to Control Everything... In Your Smart Home

Do you ever wish you could control EVERYTHING? With smart home automation, professionally installed by American Defense Systems, you can. Well, almost everything as there is no "magic" here and no chance meeting with Christopher Walken... just some super powerful software development.



Home security systems have come a long way with the addition of smart home automation. You can still arm you security system, and protect your home but with the mobile application, you can also control your home at every level. 

  • You can see whos at your front door through your video doorbell.

  • You can lock and unlock your front door from anywhere with a smart lock.

  • You can monitor and adjust the temperature in your home with a smart thermostat.

  • You can open your garage with a remote garage door opener.

  • You can turn your lights on or off with the Qolsys IQ Lightbulb.

But what about EVERYTHING ELSE? Believe it or not, we have an answer for that. 

The Qolsys IQ Socket allows you to plug in anything, and control it from your mobile app. Naturally, if you have select lighting features that require a non-standard size light bulb, you can still harness control. 


The IQ Outlet can convert any standard outlet into a smart home outlet. Activate and deactivate any appliance that you have plugged into the outlet, remotely, and set home automation rules! The IQ Outlet also works as a Z-Wave repeater to extend the range of signals to the IQ Panel 2. You can use this amazing plug-in for any item in your home that plugs into a standard socket. ​


Do you have a bluetooth speaker, up high on a shelf for the best sound projection?

Want to listen to some music, but don't want to drag that chair over to climb up to power it on?

Plug it into the IQ Socket, and turn it on or off from your smartphone.


Do you have an electric heater in your basement or laundry room that you only turn on when the temperature drops below freezing? 

You don't want to keep it on all day, but you'll be at work.

With the IQ Socket, you can see if you left it on, or if you forgot to turn it on at all. 


Do you have a pinball machine?

I do, and this is a real-life use case; pinball machines are finicky. Vintage pinball machines are very finicky and it's best not to drag them around, or pull them away from the wall to power it on everytime you want to play. 

Using an IQ Socket, you can now turn on your pinball machine without having to wiggle it out, and potentially shake up your capacitors & coils (it's a thing).


Do you have something in your home that would benefit from adding a remote control to? Call today, and we can put together a custom package for you, that includes control, access and the best monitoring around with Brinks Home Security according to JD Power and Associates.
