Happy New Year!
American Defense Systems provides the most advanced security and automation solutions, including the Alarm.com mobile application and peripherals.
We LOVE Alarm.com, and how they are always engineering new ways to help you protect and stay connected to what matters most: your family, your home and your business. With new solutions, integrations, features and updates galore, here are a few things that Alarm.com did in 2018 that put the SMART in smart-home.
A new level of intelligence for your home
This October, they activated new artificial intelligence capabilities that will define the next generation of smart home security features, including a video analytics service that can understand and alert you to specific types of activity on your property.
Developed by the Alarm.com computer vision research team, equipped with cutting-edge AI, and trained for smart home and business security applications, the service can tell whether a moving object in your driveway is a person, an animal or a vehicle, distinguish everyday activity from unusual events, and alert you when a person or pet crosses a virtual "tripwire" into an important or off-limits area. What this means for you is a new level of awareness, with smarter video alerts that show you exactly what you need to see.
A smarter voice control experience
The latest voice control integration—this time with Apple's Siri voice assistant—lets you incorporate Alarm.com commands into customized voice shortcuts, making it easier and more intuitive to voice-control your home from inside, outside, or on the go.
An all-in-one, security solution for businesses
Not just transforming home security anymore, in 2018 we saw the launch of Alarm.com for Business. This is a tough, multitasking, commercial-grade solution engineered for small and medium businesses. With smartphone-controlled security, video surveillance, access control and smart thermostats in a single Alarm.com-powered package, this valuable, proactive business tool redefines what a security system should do.
A smart new safeguard for when emergency strikes
Professional security monitoring - even more valuable and effective with an Alarm.com app. A recent update gives you a direct emergency connection to your home's monitoring station. Smart Signal lets you use your Alarm.com app to trigger a panic alert, verify an alarm event, or quickly cancel a false alarm at your home, using a new set of signaling buttons.
Each button triggers a specific message from your security panel to the monitoring station, giving your station additional real-time information on what's happening, and ultimately reducing the time it takes to alert your local police or fire department. When every second counts, that's important.
