Mobile Alerts... Not Just For The President.

This week, many of us got hit with a mobile alert from the President; let's be real, it was some IT guy at the White House hitting send and it was the best day of his life! 

 

 

Mobile alerts for emergency notifications can come from the weather service or local police or fire departments in the event of an emergency. These alerts are so effective because your smartphone is readily available. But this is nothing new - Alarm.com has been doing this for years with their mobile alerts!

 

 

 

Alarm.com alerts that let you know about important things at home. Our smart home security alerts are easy to set up, like this no-show alert, and they can save you a great deal of trouble by giving you early awareness of a problem at home. Here are four lesser-known but valuable Alarm.com alerts you should know about. You can find them all and opt into them by logging into your Alarm.com account on a desktop or laptop, and going to the Notifications tab.

 

Temperature Threshold Alert

Great for frequent travelers or second homeowners, this alert warns you if your home's heating malfunctions in winter when you're not there. If the temperature drops below a given threshold, you'll get a notification, giving you time to take action before your water pipes freeze and burst, averting expensive water damage.

 

Smoke Detector Low Battery

You may have grown up with the habit of replacing your smoke detector batteries at the same time as you adjusted your clocks and watch for Daylight Savings time. These days, with the clock on your phone updating automatically, it's easy to forget. No worries: a smart smoke detector, installed as part of an Alarm.com-powered security system, automatically sends you an alert when its battery runs low, no matter what time of year it is.

 

Curfew Alert

Giving your teen kids a curfew is a good way to enhance their sense of responsibility as they become more independent. If you go out for the evening, though, how will you know for sure? Alarm.com can help you keep tabs with a curfew alert. It's a type of user code alert which only alerts you if your teen arrives home and disarms the security system after a given time of night. You also have the option of a no-show alert—great for teens, dog walkers and contractors alike.

 

Refrigerator Left Open

Have you ever experienced the sinking feeling of discovering a refrigerator of spoiled food, or a thawed freezer, because you or your kids left the door ajar? This costly situation is easily averted by placing a designated contact sensor on the door and activating this pre-set notification. If the door is left open for more than five minutes, you'll get a reminder to close it.
