YARDLEY, Pa., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeShield™ Security is pleased to announce the availability of the new LifeView™ application that allows on-the-go users to wholly manage their LifeShield home security system from their Apple iPad.
LifeView is LifeShield's new sleek and sophisticated portal that offers easy and complete interactivity with the LifeShield home security system. Available from the Apple App Store, The LifeView app for iPad provides significantly more functionality through a simple interface with clever graphics and instinctual navigation that allows users of all ages to easily manage their home security system from their iPad.
"We were one of the first companies to offer digital security with remote access and text messaging at a time when all systems were phone line only. Now with our new LifeView app, we're the first company moving people off of traditional keypads to the Apple iPad and giving control of their entire security system through the tablet," notes Louis Stilp, Founder and COO, LifeShield Security. "Essentially, we just leapfrogged every competitor with a far superior user interface that's attached to the customer and not their house."
Within the LifeView app for iPad, users manage their system via the Console Tab that's color-coded, easy to read and shows the status of every sensor and device for the entire system – whether a screen is up or a door is open – and users can view the 20 most recent events instantly. If a user has cameras installed, the LifeView app will also take snapshots when the app is launched so the user can instantly view current images from every camera installed throughout the home.
No other home security company offers as many functions in a single application as the LifeView app for iPad. Only LifeShield customers can fully configure their security systems instantly from anywhere in the world. Its sophisticated user interface allows customers to:
- Log in to access every LifeShield system setting
- Use the Console Tab to view the most recent 20 events as well as current snapshots from each installed camera around the home
- Click on the Camera Tab to gain access to all pictures and videos, as well as the ability to view live video
- View the History Tab to scan the last 90 days of history
- Arm the system with one touch and quickly disarm the system via user code
- Create new event notifications and camera triggers
- Add or remove users
"LifeShield recognizes that people want to be in charge of their own security system -- and that home security apps developed by competitors offer very limited functionality and don't allow for total system configuration," added Mike Hagan, CEO, LifeShield. "LifeShield is causing a seismic shift in the industry because we're proof that people want cutting-edge technology that works for them -- so we're winning over new people every day and they're loving us."
