How to Make Your Smart Home Even Safer with Alarm.com

While home security systems have been available for decades, even the most trusted brands can’t go the extra mile. They are robust in protection, but don’t have the helpful amenities homeowners seek— leaving them instead with a system that lacks the clever and convenient features a smart home needs.

Enter Alarm.com, the industry leader in automated security.

Residential Systems Inc. is proud to add this line of products to our selection of carefully vetted security solutions. Alarm.com products work with your existing systems to provide additional features, all on a well-constructed interface that operates right from your smartphone.

More than a smart app or a stylish thermostat, Alarm.com seamlessly connects the key devices in your home on one platform — so they work together and work smarter.

Here are a few key features:

 

Personalized Alerts

What time did my teenager get home?

Did I forget to close the garage door when I left today?

Did I leave the lights on?

Unlike traditional systems that only alert you in an emergency event, Alarm.com lets you know what’s happening at your property at any time.

It’s easy to set your own alerts and reminders to be notified of any activity you care about, whether your system is armed or not.

 

Access Control

Stop leaving your key under the mat or worrying that you left the garage door open. With Alarm.com you can remotely lock the door, close the garage and get a reminder if you forget. Give friends and family their own codes and get a notification when they’re used. Do the same thing for your garage door, too!

 

Energy Management

Save money and stay comfortable with responsive energy savings, location-based automation and personalized usage recommendations based on your activity patterns.

 

Video Monitoring

Don’t miss a moment of activity at home. Get video alerts when activity is detected and watch live or recorded video from your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch.

 

Proactive Safeguards

Alarm.com quickly learns your home’s usual activity patterns, so it can alert you when something is out of place. If an intrusion occurs, Alarm.com will proactively alert their 24/7 monitoring station and emergency personnel, then notify you via text message when help is on the way.

 

Geo-Services

Using your phone’s location services, Alarm.com can set up a virtual perimeter or Geofence that automatically triggers specific actions when you cross it. With this technology, Alarm.com detects when you are leaving and will send you an alert if you forget to lock the door as you leave. Geo-fencing can also turn off your climate control upon your departure, saving both money and energy that otherwise would be wasted on an empty house.
