Sep 12 2014

Alarm.com's mobile app offers a real-time at a glance view of what's happening around the home and complete control of all the home's integrated devices with a single tap.

Vienna, VA – September 12, 2014 – Alarm.com, the leading cloud-based software platform powering the connected home, launched a major new update to its mobile app today.  Available now on both Android and iOS, the re-designed app allows the millions of Alarm.com's connected home subscribers to seamlessly control and manage all the key connected devices in their homes. 

Alarm.com's connected home platform offers consumers a flexible choice of home automation solutions enabled by a large ecosystem of devices.  From security panels and smart thermostats to video monitoring and lights, locks and garage doors, users can quickly connect to their home through a single, intuitive mobile app.  

With this new update, Alarm.com's mobile app streamlines access to key features and controls.  A single screen offers a real-time at a glance view of what's happening around the home and complete control of all the home's integrated devices with a single tap.

"We built our connected home platform from the ground up around the vision that device interoperability and data integration would deliver a more useful and compelling user experience," said Daniel Kerzner, Alarm.com's Chief Product Officer, "and our new mobile app enhances that.  Not only can our users quickly control all the device and system in their home, but they can make them work together in personalized ways that makes Alarm.com's solutions more meaningful."

Along with the updated architecture and design elements, Alarm.com's app enables new features.  Live, High-Definition video feeds stream directly from the app's home screen, and one tap accesses additional camera views as well as the smart clip video gallery.  A new thumbnail image in the gallery now shows the relevant activity within each clip to make it easier for users to find the video they're looking for while on the go.   

Alarm.com offers flexible options so consumers can find the right solution to fit their needs, and the mobile app automatically scales depending on the user's configuration.  As they add devices and services over time, the app will automatically expand to give them access to the latest connected home features they want.
