Video: Controlling an Alarm.com-Powered Home

Nov 17 2017
A smart home device typically comes with an app to control it. But when you've got a smart thermostat, security system, locks, lights, video cameras and more, how many different apps will you need?

In an Alarm.com-powered smart home, you only need one.

At Alarm.com, we design our technology to be intuitive and customizable. That includes simplifying the way you control things, while also giving you choices.

One app does everything

Think of it as a command center for your entire home. Unlike off-the-shelf smart devices, each with their own app, a smart security system powered by Alarm.com comes with our top-rated smartphone app that controls every device.

With everything connected into a single, intuitive interface, it's easy to secure your home, dim the lights, view alerts, watch live video or even answer the door with a couple of taps on your phone.

Voice control adds convenience

Sometimes, hands-free is the way to go. Our integrations with Amazon Echo and Google Home let you control your Alarm.com-powered home with intuitive voice commands.

Just wake up Alexa or Google with your voice, then "ask Alarm.com" to adjust your lights, turn up the temperature, close your garage door and more.

Your home on your wrist!

Our app for Apple watch uses quick, light interactions to make controlling your home as easy as checking the time.

Taptic feedback means that you can actually feel alerts when they arrive, while one-touch commands let you respond with a quick tap on your Watch face. It's never been easier to stay aware and in control of what's happening at home.
