I Can Do That with My Security Camera System?


We Cover 3 Innovative Features of Your Alarm.com Surveillance Technology

When it comes to getting to know your new security camera system, understanding the ins and outs of all of the included features is essential. Of course, our dedicated team will teach you how to operate your security and surveillance setup, but there’s always something new to learn. You may even find that you don’t need to use a feature until a few months or a year from now.

Luckily, we have an entire suite of tutorial videos for our clients to use when they need a visual walkthrough of their systems. From creating Sonos playlists to managing lighting scenes on your Control4 home automation system, you’ll be able to find frequently – and not so frequently used yet still valuable – settings and lessons for your smart home technologies. These videos are a great way to refresh your brain if you forget what is at your disposal when protecting your Brownsville, TX home.

Creating a pre-defined perimeter around your home will allow your smart security system to become truly intelligent. If you or a loved one have moved beyond the specified area, a push notification is sent to your smart device if something atypical occurs. You may wonder why this is useful, but imagine the following: you leave the house for work and are suddenly hit with a pang of anxiety – did you lock the front door? Or did you leave the house in such a rush that you left the garage door wide open?

If you did, you would receive a notification. You’ll then be able to arm your system remotely using the Alarm.com app. Take a look at the video below to see how to set up your geofence parameters.


Doorbell Cameras

With the Alarm.com app, you can view a live look at your front door with a simple tap of your finger. If someone rings your doorbell – or triggers the motion sensor by approaching the porch – you’ll be able to see, hear, and talk to whoever is at the door. For delivery and service people, once you verify their identity, you can remotely unlock your door to let the person inside. Once they leave, you can lock the door behind them. Saved video footage is available for later viewing as well, so if you miss a notification, no worries! See how it all works in the video:


Check Your Videos Remotely

Whether you’re at home or across the globe, you can remotely view live and previously recorded security camera footage easily. You can tap into the feeds of your surveillance cameras installed around the perimeter of your home if something triggers a motion sensor or the alarm. You can even download and share videos, too; this is an essential feature that will help local law enforcement investigate crimes in the unfortunate case of attempted burglaries. Learn how to check your footage by watching the video below:
