Revolutionary One Button Home Control

You now have access to ‘Scenes’ in the Alarm.com app. Scenes are actions you frequently take with your home grouped together so your home can respond with the touch of a button to your every command. Here are some examples…

  • Leaving the house? Tap the new ‘Away’ Scene and your security system can arm, your front door can lock, your garage can close and your thermostat can set back to save energy.
  • Ready for bed? Tap ‘Sleep’ Scene to have your thermostat dial down or switch to the bedroom temperature sensor for perfect comfort, lights can turn off, while your house secures itself for the night.
  • Home, Away, Sleep and Wake Up. Each scene is configured for a moment in the day where you need to adjust several things at once: arriving home, leaving the house, going to bed and getting up in the morning.

No problem, easily build your Movie Scene, and your system can turn off the lights, lock the door, set the alarm system to Stay with one click on the app. Click here to learn more and here for a quick how-to for building your own custom Scenes.

Change the temperature, turn your living room light off or even check the arming status of your security system. Even better, you can control all these at once with a single voice command to Alexa. Just say “Alexa, ask Alarm.com to…” followed by your command or question. Alarm.com can either answer you through the Echo or can automatically trigger the device to the action requested.

You might think that smart devices are the definition of a smart home. Smart devices are an important part of building a smart home, but some smart devices alone doesn't make a smart home.

Smart Devices are Only a Part of The Smart Home

You might think that smart devices are the definition of a smart home. Smart devices are an important part of building a smart home, but some smart devices alone doesn’t make a smart home.

So what does make a home smart?


The Coach

Think of your favorite sports team. Each player has important and specialized skills, but they can only win games by working together.

The foundation of a good team is the coach. Throughout the game, the coach gets information from players and assistants to understand the big picture of what’s happening on the field. With this information, he can call the plays and makes sure each player contributes.

The true smart home has such a coach: your security system. Your security system controls every device in the home. It gathers intelligence from around the home and coordinates actions to make the home safer, smarter and more efficient.

You might not see what’s happening behind the scenes, but you will definitely notice the unique features and value that only a security-controlled smart home can deliver.


Your smart home using integrated video

Video monitoring is a popular smart home security solution. Standalone smart cameras record motion-triggered clips of activity in the home and send them to the homeowner, providing valuable awareness of what’s going on.

An integrated video system can do more. The security system can tell the platform who disarmed the system or where important activity is happening, such as someone entering the back door. With this information the platform intelligently directs the camera to capture important activity and then alerts you with a video clip on your smart phone.

When the homeowner disarms the system, the camera doesn’t record. The platform enhances awareness when you’re away and privacy when you’re home.


Your smart home sensing opportunities to save energy

A standalone smart thermostat knows when you walk in front of it. But that’s not a lot of information to decide whether it should make the entire home comfortable, or set back to save energy. 

A smart home can trigger energy saving opportunities depending on where you are. For example, if you’re away the thermostat can automatically change to the ‘away’ temperature and the lights shut off if they were left on. This saves you money and time. You’re also not sacrificing comfort because when you are near home, the thermostat readjusts to a comfortable temperature, the lights come on and the door unlocks for you.


Your smart home on the lookout for water damage

Smart devices can help protect your property. For example, a water sensor can alert you that a pipe is leaking in your second home hours away.

A smart home can go further and respond proactively. When the water sensor is triggered the platform immediately commands a connected water valve in the basement to shut off the home’s water.

And that’s just the beginning. While the standalone device offers value in each case, the platform is the key to multiplying their value and solving complex, real-life challenges for homeowners.

You’ve heard how Smart Home technology can be integrated with your security system to bring a new level of convenience and savings. But how about time? Our time is increasingly our most important commodity.

Save Time with Smart Home Technology

You’ve heard how Smart Home technology can be integrated with your security system to bring a new level of convenience and savings. But how about time? Our time is increasingly our most important commodity.  

A recent survey by Coldwell Banker Real Estate and CNET finds the majority of Americans with Smart Homes say that these products do save them about $1,000 per year and an average of 30 minutes per day! Here are some of the ways Alarm Engineering can help:

Keep it Secure

How many times this month have you rushed out of the house in the morning and couldn’t remember if you locked your door? Have you ever left the neighborhood and wondered whether you remembered to close the garage door?  If you’re like most, you go back by to make sure it’s closed.

Not anymore. The Alarm Engineering smart phone app powered by Alarm.com lets you secure your home from anywhere with one touch of a button.

Don’t Wait Around to Let Visitors or Workers In

Allowing safe access to your home for a visitor or worker used to mean time sitting around the house waiting. With the Alarm.com mobile app, you can unlock your door from anywhere when your worker or guest arrives. If they are a trusted person in your home and will be coming again, you can easily create them a custom user code. It’s much faster and more secure than making and keeping track of spare keys.

Worry Less about What’s Happening at Home

Worry is always a sneaky time thief, especially when you’re trying to relax and enjoy yourself, like on vacation. 24/7 professional monitoring lets you enjoy your time away from home knowing all is well. Plus, with Alarm.com’s mobile app, you can peek in at any time and see for yourself that all is well.

Watching your Energy Bills

Smart devices make it possible for you to turn any appliance into a smart appliance. Just use Alarm.com’s Smart Plugs to turn your coffee pot, slow cooker or light on or off on demand or set up schedules. Turn your lights on and off and adjust your thermostat automatically when you come and go

Setting up Smart Home Equipment

Don’t worry about setting up your own Smart Home, our installation professionals will install it for you, show you how to use it and test it before we leave. 

More Savings for Current Customers

If you’re already an Alarm Engineering customer, you can save money upgrading your system too with our Customer Loyalty Rewards. You can save up to $1,000 towards your upgrade. Many of our customers have received a free upgrade due to this program!

The most obvious advantage of wireless security systems are less wire and drilling throughout your home or business, but there are many more advantages. Here are seven benefits of installing or upgrading your current system to wireless.

7 Benefits of a Wireless Security System

The most obvious advantage of wireless security systems is less wire and drilling throughout your home or business, but there are many more advantages. Here are seven benefits of installing or upgrading your current system to wireless.

Your system can continue to work even if phone lines are down.

As an authorized Alarm.com dealer, our systems can use a secure cellular connection that is fast and reliable. 

Save money by eliminating your home or office phone line.

As traditional phone service is phased out of more of our Eastern Shore communities, traditional phone lines are increasingly expensive. Enjoy the savings of eliminating your traditional phone service without breaking the bank with our exclusive Customer Loyalty Rewards.

Exclusive “Crash & Smash” Technology sends an alert signal even if a burglar tries to disable or destroy your panel.

Savvy intruders will attempt to destroy your security system’s control panel to defeat the alarm. With our wireless protection, the alarm signal can still be sent to our central station, alerting us to the situation and the authorities can be dispatched.

Receive text and email alerts when your kids, aging parents or workers come and go.

Another benefit of a wireless security system is the flexibility and convenience of knowing what’s happening while you’re away. Once you have the foundation of your smart home in place, it’s easy to add to your system later. We can incorporate light, lock, appliance, thermostat, video and garage control into your smart home. Even if you’re looking to put your home on the market soon, it’s a smart move. Read more here.

“We have remote controls for everything these days, so why not for your home?” our customer Donna tells us. “Control your lights, or lock and unlock your door remotely — and your thermostat! Now that’s the biggie! Just touch your phone, and you’re done! I don’t have to worry about whether I remembered to bring my keys when I left D.C, and I change the thermostat settings on my way, so it’s comfortable when I arrive.”

Create custom user codes for employees, guests, or renters and easily disable or change them later.

Don’t give ‘forever access’ to folks who shouldn’t be able to access your home later without your knowledge. Your wireless Alarm.com system from Alarm Engineering allows you to easily change or disable custom user codes for renters, guests, workers, property managers and more.

“A friend from South Bethany just recently shared with me that her neighbors rented their home out over the summer and that those same renters were still using the home on Thanksgiving because the renters had made themselves a key!” Our customer Paul shared. “Well, there’s no way that can happen with our home: We can just look to see if anyone has come in or even if anyone changed the thermostat settings.”

Remote system access to lights, locks, thermostats, video and garage door from your smartphone or tablet.

Integrating your security system with home automation and remote access is using the system to its fullest potential. Protect your family and investment with the security and automation experts at Alarm Engineering. We’ve been protecting Delmarva for over thirty years and were the first to bring automation to the Shore. Remember, you can save by upgrading your system with our Customer Loyalty Rewards.

“This system removed the burden and pressure of owning an investment property,” our customer Paul in Delaware offers. “Now, we’re looking forward to our first renters at Savage Pines this season!”

Big Savings with Customer Loyalty Rewards

Save up to $1000 on your security system upgrade with customer loyalty rewards

As a valued Alarm Engineering customer, you can save big on your upgrade to a wireless security system with our Customer Loyalty Rewards, where we give you $50 in credit for each year you’re been our customer towards wireless features. This includes wireless crash and smash technology mentioned above, but also lights, locks, thermostat, appliance, video, and garage door control from anywhere. Many of our customers have already upgraded for FREE!

“The service we have had with Alarm Engineering has been excellent. The updated security system has been very helpful. Now we can remotely access the house and open it up, decrease or increase the temperature, check on the water, plus many other features. The video is really impressive because we can watch real time what is happening from a remote location or in the house. The biggest asset is peace of mind.” -John M.

Professional Alarm Monitoring, No Phone Line Needed

Increasingly, fewer of us have a landline phone at home.  As a matter of fact, The CDC reports that as of 2017, 50.8% of American households do not have a landline telephone service at home. Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) solutions like Vonage, digital solutions from the phone company or eliminating home service altogether are becoming more common as many look to lower household expenses or simply consolidate.

You may ask, isn’t landline telephone service required to have an alarm system?

With today’s technology, no landline is needed to support your alarm system. In fact, traditional landline phones are becoming less reliable for alarm communication as phone companies make changes to infrastructure and technology continues to evolve. 

Cellular technology used to be referred to as ‘cellular backup’ and has been in use for years. Now cellular technology has moved up to the primary communication method for your alarm system. 

Crash & Smash Protection

As an authorized Alarm.com dealer, we offer the only security system with patented “Crash and Smash” technology to protect against criminals disabling your security system by destroying the panel before it can send an alarm signal. Eliminate any doubt and make sure you are protected when you need it most.

Control at your Fingertips

In fact, our cellular technology also enables you to take advantage of interactive features such as remotely arming/disarming your system from your computer or smartphone and receiving email or text alerts, as well as state of the art energy management options, personal emergency and independent living solutions, geo-fencing technology and even remote control of your garage door – exclusive to Alarm.com!

Take advantage of our Customer Loyalty Rewards program, where you can save up to $1,000 and put cellular technology to work for you! Many of our customers have received their upgrade FREE!  Call or click now to learn more.

Getting control of the household budget is something we all attempt to do, but it can be difficult to determine what costs are most expendable. As you weigh the pros and cons of each expense consider that your insurance agent prefers you keep your alarm system monitored.

Convenience and control – that’s what we all want! 

Now, with Alarm Engineering’s integrated services powered by Alarm.com, convenience and control are at your fingertips.  The newest offering to home security is the ability to control your lights, thermostat, appliances, locks and view what’s happening in your home remotely using your smartphone or computer. 

Know when your new dog-sitter came and left.  Watch your children get home safely. See whether your pet escaped his cage… again! Set your alarm remotely (or check that it’s on if you don’t remember!) Control the lights on demand or create custom schedules while you’re away on vacation so no one knows you’re gone. Control your thermostat with your smartphone. Receive alerts when your liquor or gun cabinet is opened.

These may seem like conveniences but they save time, money, headaches and worry.

Now, Alarm Engineering is offering its customers $50 off for each year of loyalty when you upgrade to our new suite of Interactive Services, with no maximum.  Call or click to learn more! 410-546-2210
