There are plenty of home security apps on the market, but many companies decide not to develop their own apps and instead use those available from Alarm.com, the industry leader in automated home security systems. This week we take a closer look at the home security apps from Alarm.com available across different devices.
Mobile and Tablet
Smartphones can do just about anything these days, and controlling your home security system is no exception. The app is supported by iOS, Android and Windows phone operating systems. From the app you can access the status of your home, watch live or recorded video, receive alerts, and manage your alerts and schedules.
You can do everything from the Apple Watch app you can from the mobile and tablet app, except manage alerts and schedules. Security, live video, thermostat and lock features are all available through the Watch.
This smartwatch has been around longer than the Apple Watch, and has found its niche in the smartwatch market as a low-tech option. The Alarm.com app for Pebble Watch lets you check on you system’s status, receive alerts, and control your system, lights, locks, garage door and thermostats.
Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV
The apps for these home theatre devices allow you to stream live video from your security cameras straight to your television. You can’t control or adjust anything from this app, but it gives you the best view of what’s going on around your home. In order to get the most out of this app, be sure to see our series on choosing internet service for home automation, parts one and two.
