What makes a security system powered by Alarm.com "smarter"?
It has its own app, for sure, but so do toothbrushes nowadays. So what's the big deal about smarter home security
– and why should you consider it for your home?
1: It's built smarter
A security system keeps you safe by signaling for help in an emergency. Unlike traditional systems that piggyback on your cable or phone connection, Alarm.com uses a dedicated, reliable cellular connection
. That's smarter because it can't be cut with wire cutters, or taken out by a falling tree. Alarm.com is a better lifeline for your home.

2: Smart, simple controls
Traditional security systems are controlled at the wall panel. You can control an Alarm.com system with your phone
, with a smartwatch
, and even with your voice
, which makes it easy and convenient. You can also interact with it from anywhere, checking in via video, for example, or answering your front door while you're at work. It's smarter because it gives you way more value.
