Alarm.com is an interactive service platform for security systems. The service is accessed by end users so that they can control their systems.

Once you have accessed Alarm.com, you can arm and disarm your system, check the current system status control your Z-Wave devices, view the live feed for your Alarm.com Security Cameras and more, all from one convenient location.

Building around Alarm.com is a great way to have your alarm system and your home automation devices grouped into one easy-to-use network. Most users start service with Alarm.com by activating a security system with an Alarm.com Cellular Communicator. Some systems already include an Alarm.com Communicator built-in. One example is the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus. Other systems, like the 2GIG GC3, need to have one added separately. Please note that Alarm Grid customers will need a monitoring plan of Gold or higher to use Alarm.com.
Another reason to use Alarm.com is for the Alarm.com Security Cameras. These cameras connect with the Alarm.com Servers, and they can be conveniently viewed from the Alarm.com website and mobile app. You can set up a 24-hour recording schedule for these cameras using an Alarm.com Stream Video Recorder. Please note that only eight (8) Alarm.com Cameras can be used with the SVR at any given time. The IQ Panel 2 Plus will even allow you to stream certain Alarm.com Cameras right from the panel. Alarm Grid monitored customers will need a Platinum Plan or higher to use Alarm.com Cameras. We also offer a standalone video monitoring plan that can be used by customers who do not have a security system.
Overall, Alarm.com is compatible with a wide variety of systems, sensors, cameras and home automation devices. This makes it a truly diverse platform to build around. We strongly recommend it for anyone with a compatible system who wants to make their life as convenient as possible.
