You can create Scenes in both the desktop and mobile versions of your Alarm.com app. We’re going to use the desktop version. Log into your account, click the emPower tab, then click Scenes.

For example, you may want this Scene to set the security system to Arm Stay, with the front door locked.

To include a device, check the circle to the left of it, then specify what you want the device to do.

If you like to stay cozy under a blanked, let’s turn the temperature down for this Scene too.

Movies require a blanket, so we're turning the temperature down for this Scene.

Of course the lights have to go off for the movie. 

Finally, we're going to have the hallway and living room lights turn off, for perfect movie ambiance.

Congratulations, you’ve created your first custom Scene! The next time you log into your security system app, you’ll be able to use it. Swipe left on the Scenes bar to find the new button, and tap once.

Did you know your security system can help with Energy Management at your home or business? Whether you want to save money on those rising energy bills or decrease your carbon footprint, Alarm Engineering can help you achieve your Energy Management goals.

The Benefits of Energy Management

Did you know your security system can help with Energy Management at your home or business? Whether you want to save money on those rising energy bills or decrease your carbon footprint, Alarm Engineering can help you achieve your Energy Management goals.

Heating Systems

  • Changing your thermostat even a couple of degrees can make a big difference – and when you’re not home, the thermostat should be set even lower.  Use Smart Schedule technology from Alarm Engineering to see a snapshot of your current energy needs and easily program your system by day and time. Not planning on being out? Set your alarm to away, and the thermostat will reset to a lower temperature automatically. Or, use your computer or smartphone to change the temperature in your home or office on-demand.
  • Trigger lighting to come on automatically when you enter a room – utilize your security motion detectors to help your pocketbook and the environment at the same time.
  • Be sure your heating system is properly maintained. Dirt in your heating system can restrict airflow and make your system work harder than it needs to. Proactive maintenance is much less expensive than running your system hard for little output or having your system go down.

Be Mindful

  • Kitchen or Bathroom fans take the heated air out of a room in an hour; don’t leave them running for any longer than is necessary. Get a timer switch instead of a manual one so you don’t have to remember to turn it off!
  • Most of the energy required to wash laundry is used in heating the water. With the availability of better cold water detergents, using cold water is easier than ever.
  • Clean or replace filters on air conditioners once a month or as recommended.
  • During the heating season, open drapes to let in the sun and close in the evening to keep out the chill. Draperies with insulated lining are effective, widely available and inexpensive.
  • During summer, keep the window coverings closed during the day to block the sun’s heat.
  • If you have a fireplace, keep the damper closed when you aren’t using it.
