Here are just a few benefits of Alarm.com’s Smart Home Automation:

Advanced Video Analytics & Notifications

Next-generation motion detection and facial recognition can tell when someone is on your porch, and whether they’re a threat or not.

Smart Thermostats & Energy Management

Control your home’s temperature from anywhere and receive event-specific alerts, from open doors to extreme temperature and weather events. The ability to pre-program your thermostat to a specific temperature during certain times of the day ensures comfort, while also lowering your monthly utility bills.

Imagine the ability to program your house to be ready to welcome you when you arrive home from work. Using geofencing, your thermostat can automatically adjust to the perfect temperature when you arrive. Watch your lights turn on as you walk up the driveway to a door that unlocks just as you reach it, and step inside to find your favorite music already playing.

All of this is possible with Alarm.com’s smart home automation.
