Same great Alarm.com features just without professional monitoring.
Self-monitored security systems are exactly what they sound like, they are alarm systems you technically monitor yourself. The key advantage is the cost savings over a professional dispatch plan, while still retaining the modern interactive features that Alarm.com and their smartphone app provides. This includes not only notification of alarms and trouble issues at home received on the Alarm.com app, also remote arm and disarm control of your security system, and Z-Wave home automation and video options.
Keep in mind “you” are responsible for calling your local police, fire, or medical departments in the event of an emergency at home with self-monitoring. If you miss the app alert on your phone or out of a Wi-Fi or cellular service area an emergency may not be acted upon, at least in a timely manner. This is why we always recommend 24×7 professional dispatch.
Remotely arm and disarm your security system from anywhere, control your Z-Wave lights, door locks and thermostats.
Stay aware of important activities at your home or business, not just when there’s an emergency – with customizable text, video, push notifications and email alerts.
View and control your DIY security system with the app’s easy to navigate dashboard: Arm and disarm your system, view live video, adjust lights, locks, thermostat and garage doors.
