Yes all around.  I use a keypad system from ADT, but we also added Wi-Fi
capability so I can easily arm the system and also control the temperature.
The system is fully accessible including vocal messages from the system when
it is armed, disarmed, or when some zones report error conditions.

Does anyone have one that you can set, check, monitor or be alerted via your

Do any of you use your cellphone to set your thermostat in your home?


Can't wait to hear responses.

The National Federation of the blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future.  Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. 

You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
