Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Taps Alarm.com Home Security And Monitoring Technology For Baltimore City Girls Home


Vienna, Virginia - September 23, 2010 - Alarm.com today announced that its wireless, web and mobile security and monitoring technology was installed and will be utilized in the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition home in Baltimore City that is scheduled to be featured in the September 26, 2010 premiere episode.

The 11,000+ square foot home is the largest build to date for the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team, and will be used as an all-girls residence in Baltimore City for the local chapter of the Boys Hope Girls Hope organization. The Alarm.com remote security and monitoring system was successfully installed by Alarm.com authorized dealer Homesafe Security Systems, a division of the HS Technology Group.

"Alarm.com is grateful for the opportunity provided by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and our authorized dealer, Homesafe Security Systems, to provide this three story home with our home security and monitoring technology," said Alison Slavin, Alarm.com Vice President of Product Management. "The home's new residents will benefit from the security that comes with our innovative, easy-to-use features like always-on activity reporting and GSM wireless technology that remains operational even if the phone line is cut or broadband Internet is disabled."

With several hundred thousand residential and small business customers throughout North America, Alarm.com's wireless, web and mobile security and monitoring technology enables users to receive motion-triggered video, text and email alerts to their mobile devices when alarm and day-to-day activities occur in and around the residence, including:

  • Motion triggered video clips when kids arrive - or fail to arrive - home safely from school at the expected time.
  • Real-time notifications if a medicine cabinet, liquor cabinet or other sensitive area is accessed.
  • Sensor-based alerts if a flood is detected in the basement or there is access through the garage and other entry points.
  • Apps for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android phones that enable real-time notifications, video monitoring, and the ability to remotely arm/disarm the security system.
  • Home energy management capabilities with the ability to remotely control and monitor thermostats, lights and locks.

"We are excited that Alarm.com was able to work with us on this project, and believe strongly in the firm's technology and innovative services delivered to consumers via the web and mobile devices," said Stuart Forchheimer, Chief Technology Officer, Homesafe Security Systems, an Alarm.com authorized dealer and division of the HS Technology Group.

The two-hour season premiere of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will air September 26, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. EDT on ABC, featuring the Baltimore City home.
