The Home Management Systems (HMS) provide a comprehensive set of security features as well as lighting, HVAC and low voltage device control.  Two systems are available:  the HMS 925 provides basic security and home management features, and the HMS 1050 provides an enhanced set of home management features.  A capacity and feature matrix is shown near the bottom of this page.

Both systems offer the following features:

These systems can handle up to 96 zones (HMS 1050) with optional wireless sensor capability.  They can be partitioned and accept multiple keypads.  The systems have dial-out capability via an RJ-31x interface, and are UL listed.  A complete security system will require sensors and alerting devices, which are available from other sources.

Lighting Control:  Each panel can control lighting circuits equipped either with X10 modules (available from Carolina Wiring Service) or ALC Lighting Control Modules.  Lights can be controlled in response to an alarm event, by some other triggering event, by time of day or even remotely via the telephone.

HVAC Control: OnQ two-way communicating thermostats can be connected to the system for temperature control based on day and time as well as house occupancy / alarming status.  The thermostats can also be read and adjusted remotely from any telephone.  Temperature sensors can be connected to the system and the system can be programmed to dial out to a monitoring station or even your cellular phone when the temperature drops too low.  This can be especially useful at a vacation home that is not normally occupied.

Auxiliary Device Control: Relay modules allow the system to control devices such as lawn sprinkler systems, entry gates and garage doors.  It is even possible to shut down the furnace fan in the event of a fire alarm which will help minimize the spread of smoke through the house.

The various components of the Home Management System are described below.
