Summary of Alarm.com Interactive Monitoring Services?
Alarm transmissions are made using Contact ID or SIA format and can be sent to the GEOARM Central Station via two paths for redundancy. Primarily signals will be transmitted via Wifi, IP and/or cellular paths, and if down, over the redundant backup path that is in place. Alarm signals such as open/close, trouble, supervisory, latch-key, and monitoring of special devices, can be routed directly to our Central Station or the DIYer only.
GEOARM customers can operate their alarm system and smart devices, including thermostats, lighting, and lock controls from their smart phone. The full-featured Virtual Keypad connects in about five seconds. The Virtual Keypad is compatible with iPhone, Android and most computer web browsers. Alarm history event log is also provided at the touch of a button. User friendly applications are available for free to download at the Apple App Store or Android/Google Play.
Notifications for alarm, supervisory, trouble, and open/close signals are provided. Notifications by text and email identify the alarm system address, alarm signal and zone, and alarm signal description. Notifications usually arrive to your customers within about five seconds. It is easy to stay informed with alerts when they happen at your home and business, while not focusing on it too much!
Smart devices that include the Z-Wave protocol, including thermostat, lighting, and lock controls are managed by the Z-Wave Gateway. Z-Wave enabled devices have up to a 50-foot range and can can be daisy chained to increase range.
