Geo-Services is a really useful Alarm.com feature that enables your home to proactively take smart actions based on your location.
Alarm.com is simply smart solutions that fit your life. With smart home systems starting at only $99, we have solutions that will fit any budget no matter how big or how small. To start off with let me give a little background on the company. Alarm.com was founded in 2000 as smart homes were just beginning to gain more traction. At first it was designed for just the alarm industry. Through Alarm.com a user could now arm and disarm their system from anywhere in the world as long as they had a computer (smart phones were not invented yet so there was no app). This began a new era of innovative security systems. When they first hit the market they were direct to consumer but soon realized that users would have a better experience if they offered the service through licensed alarm dealers. At this time there were really no people doing DIY installs of security systems because the programming and wiring was so complicated.
The company was purchased by a venture capital fund in 2009 which gave them an influx of capital to really innovate their products and services. Since 2009 Alarm.com has developed into a whole home control system. You can now have total control over things such as lights, remote camera viewing and monitoring, video verification for alarms, door locks, and pretty much any Z-Wave product on the market. These features can be controlled through any smart phone or computer with internet access. Since the development of smart watches, Alarm.com has created apps for both iOS and Android based platforms.
With all the features Alarm.com offers, the consumers life becomes much simpler. Imagine this: When the last person leaves your house the system knows to automatically shut the lights off and adjust the thermostat to a higher more energy efficient temperature. The system can then detect when you are coming home, though geo-fencing, and it will automatically turn the lights back on and adjust the temperature back to a comfortable level. Pretty cool, right?
That’s not all though… Now your system can not only text you when your kids come home but it will also send you a snap shot of who disarmed the system. So maybe you don’t have kids but have a dog or cat; with Alarm.com’s Image Sensor you can now look into your home at any time.
