Catch Santa with Alarm Engineering powered by Alarm.com home security cameras

Catch Santa Using Your Smart Home Security Camera

This season, spread the holiday cheer and spread smiles from ear to ear. A real snapshot of Santa’s visit, captured easily by your smart home security camera? Yes, we can help! Make sure that your kids get in on the fun this year.

Imagine the scene. It’s the big day and you clutch your first coffee. Your family gathers around the tree and you watch your kids grasp their first gifts eagerly.

“Wait just a minute, kids,” you say, with a twinkle in your eye and a nod to one of Alarm Engineering powered by Alarm.com cameras that guard your home. “Guess who WE caught on camera?”

Excited? So are we.

How to Set Up Alarm.com’s Santa Security

To catch Santa in your home or on your property, you’ll need the latest version of the Alarm.com app, and a compatible Alarm.com home security camera.* Follow the steps below or watch a quick tip video here.

1: Open your Alarm.com app and select a live video feed (choose a compatible Alarm.com security camera).

2: Tap the Santa icon in the video feed. This will get a still image from your security camera.

3: Choose a Santa from the menu to add to your snapshot. You’ll see full-color images of the real Santa for a daytime snapshot, and black and white options for the night. You can resize and move Santa if you need to.

4: Delight your family! When your kids wake you up on Christmas morning, show them your snapshot.

5: Share the magic! Share your Santa snapshots with family and friends by email, text**, and social media (hashtag: #SantaSecurity).

 Here's what makes working with an Alarm Engineering professional a smarter approach to your Smart Home.

DIY Smart Home? Most Users Want More

Are you thinking about upgrading to a Smart Home, but overwhelmed by all that’s involved? You’re not alone.

Unlike the Smart Home’s first wave of users—those uber tech-savvy ‘early adopters’—most homeowners are a little nervous about buying, installing, and configuring smart home technology without expert help. In fact, 83 percent of you would consider relying on a smart home professional.

The good news is that we were the first to bring integrated Smart Home technologies to the Shore and we’re ready to help. We can make sure you enjoy the security and convenience that an integrated smart home solution provides and frees you up to get back to the rest of your Honey Do list.

Choosing our team is a smarter approach to your Smart Home. We offer both full service professional installation and a hybrid DIY approach. If you are interested in DIY security, we can get you started and our team is here to help if you experience any issues with set up. 

Smart Home Technology Can be Challenging to Set Up

Using Smart Home technology is easy and convenient, but setting it up can be anything but. Like anything that has to be wired or fixed into your home, installing smart home devices can be a challenge. Configuring them can be even harder, especially if you buy different devices that don't integrate easily.

Using Smart Home technology is easy, but setting it up can be anything but. Like anything that has to be wired or fixed into your home, installing smart home devices can be a challenge. Configuring them can be even harder, especially if you buy different devices that don’t integrate easily.

Our installation professionals are experts at the electrical wiring, installation and troubleshooting required to set up integrated smart home features.  In addition installing your devices physically, they’ll also quickly configure every device with Alarm.com’s smart home security platform so your experience is as seamless as possible.

Don’t Waste Time with Store Returns

Don't Waste Time with Store Returns

Our team doesn’t leave you to go it alone once your system is installed. We’re always on hand to help if you have any questions. Because smart home technology becomes part of your home’s infrastructure once installed, that’s important.

If one of your devices doesn’t work the way it should, for example, we will work with you to troubleshoot and fix it remotely. If that’s not possible, a technician will come to your house. You won’t need to troubleshoot things yourself, and you’ll never find yourself having to uninstall an essential device—say, your thermostat, in midwinter—and ship it off to get repaired.

Smart Home Professionals At Your Service

Smart Home Professionals - At Your Service

Alarm Engineering has been here for more than thirty years and we’ll be here when you need us. Full service means we treat our customers like neighbors, not numbers. In fact, our management team believes you should have access to a live person ready to help 24/7, so you won’t ever call and mess around with an auto-attendant here.

Professional security monitoring is another important component missing from stand-alone DIY smart home devices, and it’s a service that can save your life. If there’s an emergency at your home—a break-in, or a CO leak, or a fire—a security professional will respond, assess the situation, and dispatch emergency responders to help.

Choosing our team is a smarter approach to your Smart Home. We offer both full service professional installation and a hybrid DIY approach. If you are interested in DIY security, we can get you started and our team is here to help if you experience any issues with set up. Get started here.

If you are already an Alarm Engineering customer find out how much you can save on upgrading your home to Smart features, get started here!

Using the 5 D's of Home Security, here are some ways to achieve both increased security and beautiful, friendly curb appeal.

Secure Your Yard with the 5D’s of Home Security

For many homeowners, the front yard is a challenging area to keep secure.

By design, the front yard is a semi-public area between your home and the street. If you’re like most of us, you care about your home’s curb appeal and aren’t interested in extreme security measures, but there still are discreet steps you can take to make your front yard and ultimately your home more secure.

Using the 5 D’s of Home Security, here are some ways to achieve both increased security and beautiful, friendly curb appeal.

Deter

  • A professionally monitored smart home security system is perhaps the most powerful deterrent of all, and well-placed new yard signs are a great way to announce your security system. Do you need new yard signs or decals for windows? Let us know here, replacements are always free.
  • While most of its technology will reside in your home, several elements will be noticeable from the outside. These include outdoor video camerasor a video doorbell—and smart locks for your doors. 
  • After dark, lighting is an excellent deterrent. Focus on a few key areas for lighting: your front door and porch, plus any potential hiding places in your hard.
  • Motion activated smart lighting, with its power to suddenly and startlingly put an intruder in the spotlight, is best of all. Smart lights are easy to have installed on your front porch and around your whole property as part of a smart home security system, which can also schedule the lights to turn on automatically at sunset.

Detect 

  • Your monitored security system is an important part of the detection of people up to no good. 
  • Video cameras integrated into your security system are excellent detection devices as well. You can get a video clip sent right to your smartphone or peek in at any time. With recording on the cloud, there’s no worries about a bad guy destroying the DVR evidence in your home. You might be able to save on your video upgrade with our Customer Loyalty Rewards.

Deny

  • Nothing radiates curb appeal like a traditional, white picket fence. Yet, it’s also a signal that says, loud and clear: “My property starts here.”
  • Gates are easily climbed. However, bad guys typically go for the easiest target and don’t want to be seen climbing or even jumping a fence. They’ll also be aware that they’ll look suspicious on the other side, and that the slatted design of the fence leaves nowhere to hide from passers-by.

Delay

  • A clear, well-maintained path to your front door—ideally bordered with shrubs or flowers—sends a message to stay on the path.
  • It’s an example of ‘natural access control,’ where landscaping is used not to physically block people, but to subtly discourage certain behavior. Look at the front of any public building and you’ll see it in action.
  • Another effective technique is to strategically plant roses, hawthorns and other thorny shrubs around ground-floor windows. Again, this won’t keep out a determined intruder, but it will discourage an opportunistic one from peering into your home. Plus, those roses will complement your picket fence.

Defend

  • Sometimes referred to as the response layer, this is where the police come in, notified by your 24/7 monitored security system – they catch the bad guys (or more often, run them off).
  • Make sure your monitored security system is working without issue by testing your system. Read more here.

Did You Know?

Ex-burglars reveal it only takes 2 MINUTES to break into a home with no visible alarm system and 78% say that an alarm system would make them target a different home entirely. Read more about what burglars look for and how to deter them here.

Free Onsite Consultation and Estimate

To learn your needs and provide a solution perfect for you, our Systems Specialist Lee Smith will meet with you and conduct a free, no-obligation security survey to ensure the Wicomico Teachers Essentials Package meets your needs. Once we know your concerns and understand the potential vulnerabilities of your property, we will schedule one of our technicians to install, test and demonstrate your system to you.

Many security companies want to sell you a package over the phone, but we believe seeing your home and hearing your concerns first hand is a crucial part of customizing the best solution for your home and your budget. 

Our installations are backed up by our 24 hour, same day service should you ever need us. When a system is activated, signals are sent to our 24/7 monitoring facility where trained security professionals are standing by, ready to alert the appropriate emergency response. Plus, when you call our office you’ll speak to a professional ready to help. You’ll never get caught up in a call center loop at Alarm Engineering.

Are you being monitored by another Security Company?

Do you have a home security system today that isn’t being monitored at all or is being monitored by another security company? No problem!  You can still enjoy savings! We can probably monitor the security system you already have installed in your home. Our technician will come to your home to reprogram and test all your equipment at NO CHARGE! 

Plus you’ll get your first 3 months FREE and our legendary customer service too. What do you have to lose?
