The Alarm.Com module conforms your security system into a remote controlled system. In addition to your on-site keypads, your system can be accessed from any computer or smart phone. Simply install the Alarm.Com app on your Iphone, Andriod, or Blackberry smart phone or log-in through your web browser on your computer and your all set. Depending on your subscription level, you can arm/disarm your system, view up to 60 days history, view system status, setup custom notifications to your cell phone, install user codes, control automation installed devices (lights, HVAC thermostats, door locks), and much more.
As the Alarm.Com module is a wireless device using the GSM (cellular) network, another benefit is that Phone Lines are no longer necessary for communication to the Central Monitoring Station. No more worries of someone cutting the phone lines, or the cable or DSL modem (Internet) going out.
