Exclusive Technology

Get the most advanced and first-to-market innovations – only offered by Alarm.com. Here are a few examples:

Exclusive Security Features

Dedicated Connection

Dedicated cellular connectivity gives you protection even if the phone line is cut, the Internet goes down or the security panel is damaged. Plus, Alarm.com's wireless technology will operate for 24 hours on back-up battery power, keeping you secure during a power outage.
 

Crash & Smash

By detecting tampering during entry delay, alarm dialing process and dialer delay, Crash & Smash protects against criminals disabling vulnerable security systems by destroying the panel before it can send an alarm signal.
 

Image Sensor

The Image Sensor combines a traditional motion sensor with image capture and interactive services all within one device. Users receive instant image alerts that can be triggered based upon custom rules.
 
Exclusive Video Monitoring Features

Event Triggered Recording:

Create rules to trigger video recording based on activities or events so that you can see the things you care about – such as anytime the security system is disarmed after 3pm when your kids get out of school – without sifting through hours of footage.
 

Motion Triggered Recording

Automatically trigger video recording when motion is detected in the driveway or when the basement door is opened.
 

Rules-based Alerts

Set alerts for the activities and events that are important to you and you’ll receive real-time notifications with video that can be accessed via your Smartphone or computer.
 
Exclusive Energy Management Features
 

Smart Schedules

Smart Schedules take advantage of the integration between energy management tools and the security system to learn the activity patter of the home and allow automatic adjustments to lights and thermostats, in addition to scheduling lights to turn on or off based on alarm, arming, or sensor activity triggers.

Extreme Temps

Extreme Temps recognizes external temperature conditions to help reduce energy waste and expense by automatically adjusting the thermostat settings a few degrees higher or lower when it’s extremely hot or cold outside.
 

Exclusive Home Automation Features

Alarm.com Rules Engine

Engineered to be a total solution, Alarm.com’s Home Automation service connects the critical systems and devices in the home to create a highly personalized service. For example, set your lights, temperature and locks to adjust when your system is disarmed or automatically shut down your HVAC system in the event of a carbon monoxide alarm.
 

Geo-Services

Configured to a user’s specific rules, geo-services helps monitor and control conditions at home, based on your location. It can be used to automatically alert you if everyone left for the day and forgot to arm the security system.
