More Advanced and More Secure
Alarm.com doesn’t work like outdated alarm systems you’ve seen before. Instead of being tied to a phone line, which can easily be cut and disabled, our proven technology platform works wirelessly through advanced GSM cell phone towers to maintain a dedicated and secure connection.
That makes it more secure, and a great solution if you’ve already replaced your landline with a cell phone or VoIP line. Alarm.com-enabled security systems will even continue functioning for 24 hours if the power goes out.
How it works
Sensors installed throughout your home or business communicate all activity that takes place even when the system is disarmed.
All of this information travels wirelessly (via the digital GSM network) through a secure, encrypted signal to the Alarm.com Operations Center.
In the event of an alarm, the signal is routed to your central monitoring station for a 24/7 emergency response.*
* Alarm.com does not operate the central monitoring station, but instead works with over 200 third-party central monitoring stations to enable fast and reliable wireless signaling and emergency response.
An Alarm.com security system interacts with the central station faster than a traditional alarm to send out a speedier response.
