How Do I Get Alarm.com?
To get Alarm.com, you must first have a security system that is compatible with Alarm.com. This includes any 2GIG or Qolsys Panel from Alarm Grid. Next, you must obtain a monitoring plan that includes access to Alarm.com. Your alarm company will then set up your Alarm.com service.
Alarm.com is an interactive service that will allow you to use your security system in some pretty intriguing ways. With the Alarm.com service, you will be able to arm and disarm your panel, check the status of your security devices and control any Z-Wave devices that have been set up with your system. Alarm.com will also serve as the central hub for accessing any security cameras that you have programmed with your security setup. By using the Alarm.com mobile app, you will be able to access these features from virtually anywhere in the world.
The first step to gaining access to Alarm.com is to obtain a security panel that is capable of accessing the service. Not every security system is able to connect with Alarm.com, as the system may use another interactive service, such as Total Connect. Additionally, the panel will need to have a properly functioning cellular connection. This cellular connection is necessary for sending and receiving signals from Alarm.com. Without this connectivity, the panel will not be able to communicate with Alarm.com, and the service will not work. Please note that some alarm systems will need to have a cellular module added separately.
After you have a panel that is compatible with Alarm.com, you will need to obtain an alarm monitoring plan that includes Alarm.com access. Alarm.com service is provided by a monitoring company, which serves as a sort of "middleman" between the end user and Alarm.com. Once your monitoring service has been activated, your alarm company will send you instructions for configuring your Alarm.com account. You will then use this account whenever you want to access Alarm.com.
