Four Things You Can Safely Forget With Alarm.com

Mar 08 2016
When it comes to protecting your home, you rarely forget anything important. But when it happens, Alarm.com has you covered.

With smartphone reminders, proactive protection and control from anywhere, our smarter home security technology means that even when your memory slips up, you can remedy the following situations in seconds.

1: Securing your house in the morning

It's 7.37am: you're on the way to work, via your toddler's daycare drop-off, for the second time today. The first time, he made it into the car with no shoes on. And this time, you forgot to lock the front door or arm the security system. No worries: as you cross your home geo-fence, Alarm.com sends you a reminder. One tap on your phone and your house is secure, with no need to turn around again.

2: Closing your garage at night

It's 6.37 pm: it's been a long day. You sat in traffic, shopped, came home, unloaded the groceries, and finally sat down. And guess what: you left your garage door wide open. That's okay: when Alarm.com determines that your garage has been open for 15 minutes (thanks to the automation rule your dealer helped set up) – it sends you a triggered reminder to close it.

3: Changing your smoke detector batteries

The clocks went forward to daylight savings time! Did you remember your bi-annual replacement of your home's smoke detector batteries? Nope, because you forget these things very easily when deprived of an hour's sleep. It's good that Alarm.com will proactively alert you if your smoke detector batteries ever run low, no matter what time of year it is.

4: Arranging access for a visitor

Finally, it's your first day of a truly relaxing vacation. The sun is shining, the pool is perfect, and nothing is going to get in the way of you unwinding. Not even the text from your neighbor, who can't get in to feed your cat. You open your Alarm.com app and unlock your front door with the touch of a button. Later, you'll set up a user code giving access for the whole week – but you can forget that for now.
