Stock Symbol: MBT
WINNIPEG, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - AAA Alarms, a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Manitoba Telecom Services Inc., today launched a new, interactive home
and business monitoring solution called Take Control. Take Control
allows customers easy, remote access to their residential or business
monitoring system through their smartphone, computer or tablet.
"Take Control offers customers the peace of mind of staying connected to
their home or business from wherever they are," said Guido Caputi,
General Manager, AAA Alarms. "Imagine being able to check on your
cottage or business in real-time, whenever you want, from wherever you
are, by simply picking up your smartphone."
Take Control allows customers to remotely arm and disarm their security
systems; record and store live camera feeds from their home or office;
lock and unlock doors; and receive security notifications and alerts.
It is backed by AAA Alarm's state of the art, 24 hours a day, seven
days a week monitoring station and MTS's reliable network. With or
without a security system, Take Control customers can also remotely
view their home or business and adjust camera angles, allowing them to
easily monitor vulnerable spots such as entrances.
Pricing for the Take Control remote monitoring system starts at $5.99 a
month when added to an existing security system. More information on
Take Control is available by visiting www.AAAalarms.ca or by calling 1-866-949-0078.
