Buying or Selling your home on Delmarva

Buying or Selling Your Home?

Stepping into the real estate market as either a buyer or seller (or both!) can be both an exciting and stressful experience. As you make your to-do list, here are some ways that your smarter security system and the Alarm Engineering team can help make your life easier.

Best Foot Forward

When you list your home on the market, you make sure the landscaping is perfect, the paint is freshened up the home is clean and ready to view. Make sure your alarm system signs and stickers are new and prominently placed to grab the attention of potential home buyers and deter burglars who might be tempted to take advantage of that for sale sign in the yard. Here at Alarm Engineering, signs and stickers them for free at our office on W. Zion Road or request replacements here. We provide complimentary signs and stickers to current customers.

Open House

Your smarter security system can help you understand how the Open House foot traffic is going in real-time right from your app. Live video peek-ins allow you to enjoy the smiling faces of your potential buyers. 

Value-Add

If you already have a professionally monitored home security system installed it’s another reason prospective buyers will love your home. Lucky for you, smart home features are something more home buyers are looking for and they add to the value of your home. Whether it’s the feeling of safety and security an alarm system provides or the home insurance discount, make sure your potential home buyers are aware of the ways the security system will add value to their lives.

Yellow = Replace!

If your smoke detectors are yellowed or you notice yellow smoke detectors in homes you’re touring, it is probably time to replace them. Always ask your realtor whether the smoke detectors in any home you are purchasing are professionally monitored as part of the security system.

Start Saving at Your New Home

If you’ve moving anywhere on the Delmarva peninsula, use the form below to tell us about your new home and use promo code FIRSTMONTHFREE for extra savings. Even if your new home has a security system installed by another company, we will send a technician out to reprogram and test the existing system at no additional cost to you.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

At Alarm Engineering, we continuously strive for ways to enhance and improve the level of safety and support provided to our customers. We are pleased to share that we will be making significant improvements to the monitoring services provided for your alarm system.

Starting November 14th, signals from your alarm system will be received and managed by a new monitoring station with the latest technology, and even better connectivity and redundancy than before. This is NOT a change in ownership – Alarm Engineering is still the same local, independent, and service-obsessed company you know and trust. 

This upgrade comes at no cost to you and does not change the way you use your system. Your arm code(s) used to arm/disarm the system, and your account passcode – the verbal passcode used to identify yourself over the phone to the operator, all remain the same.

Update Your Contact Information

What DOES change is how you call the central station. If you have any of the following phone numbers for the monitoring station saved in your phone, please delete them: 800-433-5500, 800-356-2222, 410-785-1740.

Starting immediately, please use our existing phone number: 410-546-2210 to reach the monitoring station. You now have the convenience of calling one phone number for everything/anything related to your alarm system – monitoring station, service, support, etc.

Please share this info with everyone on your contact list, with anyone within your organization/household that may need to contact the monitoring station.

Pause Video Analytics for Halloween

Pause Video Analytics for Halloween

If you are expecting lots of trick-or-treaters, you can prevent an overload of notifications and preserve your clips by temporarily pausing Video recording rules.

How It Works

Easily pause video recording rules for your preferred amount of time directly from the Recording Rules page. You can also take action directly from a push notification: just tap the notification and select pause of one hour, one day, or until the rule is turned back on manually.

The recording will automatically resume once the time has lapsed. You can view the status of the rule, when pause period will expire, and easily resume at any time.

How To Pause on Recording Rules Page

From the your account website, click Video, then Recording Rules. Tap the status icon on the right side of the rule and select the timeframe that works best for you.

From the mobile app, click Video then Settings, then Recording Rules. Tap the status icon under the name of the rule and select the timeframe that works best for you.

Have a happy (and spooky!) Halloween!

Smart Arming Named a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree

Smart Arming Now Available

If you sometimes (or often!) forget to arm or disarm your security system, this is the feature for you. Alarm.com has unveiled Smart Arming, which goes beyond scheduled arming and disarming to adapt to your daily routines and take another thing off your to-do list.

Setup is Quick and Easy

Smart Arming is quick and easy to set up. Simply select the Clock icon in your app and choose the time of day you typically want your system armed at night (say, after 10pm) and disarmed in the morning (say, 7am), and then go about your daily routine. When your system detects inside activity or motion, like an early riser going downstairs at 6:15 am, the system automatically disarms.

You can also select a window of time to auto-disarm when activity is detected, without a scheduled time to disarm. This intelligent adaptability drastically reduces the risk of false alarms and makes home security even more convenient. 

Upgrade Now

If you aren’t enjoying the smarter home security features of Alarm.com, cash in your Customer Loyalty Dollars to save on upgrading your system now.
