Nobody in this decade would ever choose a corded phone or black and white antenna TV when better alternatives like wireless cell phones and HD flat screens are available at the touch of a button. So, why stick to old ways when our latest offerings make living smarter and easier than ever before!

Holidays are approaching and there couldn’t be a better time to gift you and your family a smarter, more comfortable way of living. Forget the socks and cozy sweaters. Here’s a list of our innovative products that you can enjoy every day of the new year.

ELEVATE your downtime

Elevate Alexa Features and remoteThese days it’s impossible to think of at-home entertainment without services like Netflix® or YouTube®. Luckily, GVTC Elevate–our latest all-in-one functional TV guide–comes integrated with your favorite streaming apps to provide you with a seamless and more enhanced experience.

How does it work? For starters, you can ditch the countless remotes and use just one - our GVTC Elevate remote that accesses all apps and shows from one place. We’re talking all of these features from one place:

✓ Alexa integration

✓ All sorts of recording capabilities

✓ Parental Controls

✓ Effortless back-and-forth between apps

✓ Video-On-Demand

✓ User-Friendly TV Guide

You read that right. GVTC Elevate is not only integrated with the latest streaming apps,
but it’s also suped-up with Amazon Alexa®. So, while you’re whipping up a snack tray in the kitchen, you can voice over to your GVTC Elevate TV guide to command, “Hey Alexa! Start Game of Thrones from the beginning!” You can learn about setting Alexa integration up or troubleshooting here.

Live safer & smarter with connectHome ®

State-of-the-art smart home security systems like GVTC connectHome® are not just reserved for model homes and tech wizards anymore. What is now a staple in many U.S. homes serves the highest of purposes, keeping your family safe and giving you peace of mind. Not to mention customizing your home automation to simply everything.

With so many gadgets to choose from, it begs the question, “Where do I even start?”

GVTC lets you start with an affordable starter package equipped with the basics that you can always expand later depending on your needs. The basics include 1 Skybell® HD video doorbell camera or indoor camera, 1 motion detector, 3 wireless sensors, and 1 Lyric Touch Screen Controller for just $34.95/month–that’s less than a couple streaming services combined!
Now that you have an idea of the devices to start with, let’s get down to the features and fun perks that make it not just a smart investment, but a fun one too!

Different codes, different access – You probably don’t want visitors to have the code to your security system. Our Smart connectHome® Security system holds up to 48 different user codes, so you can rest easy knowing your in-law’s temporary code disables right after their visit.

Set up scenes - Just like your kids, you can give your home chores too! Set up “scenes” (i.e. tasks you automate around your house) such as lowering the temperature at night or automatically locking your doors when you’re X miles from home. You heard that right —GVTC connectHomecome® with Geo-fencing capabilities so they can activate depending on your location. Imagine never having to yell at your partner for forgetting to turn the lights off.

Compatible - Unlike a jealous ex, GVTC’s connectHome® is compatible with other products you love. Have an Amazon Alexa or Google Home already? No Problem! Pair your connectHome® system with your favorite devices to make your house the coolest on the block. A good system shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying the comforts of innovative products such as smart light bulbs.

Remote Control - Life doesn’t stop the moment you leave your home. Nothing is more stressful than the hopeless feeling of not being home when guests arrive before you or when Fido gets ahold of your favorite shoes. With GVTC connectHome® you can now spy on the kids, unlock the door for a surprise visitor, instruct the delivery man on where to place your package, or scold Fido from your app no matter where you are.

We’re all about safety meets practical, and customizing your smart home automation is the pinnacle of that ultimate home experience.
