Alarm.com Review: The House Is Protected While I'm Away

Mar 17 2015
"Many of us have a security system in our homes these days," says Keith, an Alarm.com user who spends most of his time overseas. "It's great peace of mind to know that your house is secure."

Keith lives and works in Germany, but owns a house in Florida that he uses for vacations for himself, his family and his friends. His Alarm.com Smart Home Security system protects and keeps him connected to his Florida house, giving him valuable peace of mind from thousands of miles away.

"It's important for me to know that the house is protected when I'm away," Keith says.

"When I use the Alarm.com app, not only can I check the status of my security system, but I can arm or disarm it, get real-time alerts and check the history of what's been happening in my home. And I can do all that from anywhere in the world!

"If I have family or friends who want to spend a few days in the sunshine, I don't need to give them a hard-to-remember code to disarm the system. I simply ask them for a code that means something to them, and I set that up for them via the Alarm.com website.

"I can do the same for my property management company, or for tradespeople. When they've left, I just wipe the code and they no longer have access.



"That's the visible benefit I get from Alarm.com, but the stuff I don't see is just as important. Wireless communication, power outage protection, cellular connection for zero phone line vulnerability. It all adds up to a system that's flexible, secure and works the way I want it to."

"I'm extremely happy with my Alarm.com Smart Home Security system," says Keith. "It's allowed me to control access to my home in a way that just would not be possible with any other system."

"In fact, I'm so pleased with Alarm.com that I'm starting to investigate some of the other services they offer, such as two-way voice, remote control door locks, video monitoring, even home automation and energy management.

"Pretty soon I'll have a home that I'm fully in control of wherever I am, all thanks to Alarm.com."
