Mar 15 2016

Interested in Alarm.com but not sure how to get it? Here's everything you need to know, in a quick FAQ format.

Do you only sell through dealers?

Yes. We create amazing technology but it's our amazing service providers who sell it, install it, monitor it, and provide dedicated customer service. It's the best way for you to own a smart home security system.

We have a huge network of service providers across the USA and Canada. To find the right one for you, click here.

Will a dealer install the system for me?

Yes! An Alarm.com service provider typically visits your home, plans your system with you, and then installs and configures it for you. They show you how to use everything – including your Alarm.com app – and provide dedicated customer support if there's ever a problem for the life of your contract.

How much does Alarm.com cost?

It depends on the size of your home, the scope of the system, and the service provider you choose.

Typically, you pay an upfront fee of $100-200 for a smart home security system, followed by monthly subscription payments of $40-60 for the life of your contract. If you want to expand your system to a complete smart home right away, devices like smart locks, lights and thermostat are factored into the price.
