An Introduction on the Alarm.com Smart Camera
We often install Alarm.com smart cameras as part of a security system installation. When we install home security, we generally do so using our wireless home security system powered by Alarm.com. This wireless home security system can create a direct connection between your alarm system and our central station. This means that if your phone lines go down for any reason, it will not affect your monitoring. This level of security makes our wireless home security system our most popular means of alarm monitoring. Additionally, the Alarm.com wireless home security system will allow you to control your system and any other connected smart home devices remotely using a smart phone and the free Alarm.com app. In addition to your alarm system, you can control smart locks, thermostats, and other smart devices using this app.
Alarm.com cameras can also be one of these devices. These cameras provide a powerful and convenient solution for home surveillance. However, some camera customers may not be interested in installing a full alarm system. In this case, we can still install Alarm.com smart cameras as a standalone security measure. Whether connected to an alarm system or installed separately, these cameras provide both live and recorded video in and around your home. These cameras also provide this video without the need to wire them back to a central location within your house. Since most surveillance cameras do require this wiring, Alarm.com cameras provide a more versatile solution for homes in which running this wire would be difficult or even impossible. Now, let’s look at how Alarm.com cameras connect to your home’s network to provide additional security.
