Alarm.com announces Smart Arming feature

December 5, 2022  By  SP&T Staff

Alarm.com announced Smart Arming, a new feature that, according to the company, intelligently auto-arms and disarms Alarm.com powered home security systems based on user activity.

Alarm.com says that the feature allows users to choose the times of the day they want their system to arm and disarm. If the system detects activity or motion outside of these hours (e.g. an early riser walks downstairs ahead of schedule), it automatically disarms. Users can also choose a window of time to auto-disarm when activity is detected (e.g., between 5 a.m. and 12 p.m.), without a scheduled time to disarm. The company says this “intelligent adaptability” reduces the risk of false alarms. Smart Arming is free for Alarm.com customers and is available globally.

“Smart home technology should adapt to the homeowner, rather than the other way around,” said Abe Kinney, senior director of product management at Alarm.com, in a statement. “Thanks to Smart Arming, customers can sleep better because of auto-arming at night and parents can sleep in longer because of auto-disarming in the morning. Smart Arming helps reduce the worry of kids setting off an alarm by accident and reduces the need to teach holiday visitors how to use the system. It also provides added peace of mind for Alarm.com customers, who know their security system is working hard behind the scenes to prevent false alarms and potential fines.”

Alarm.com was named a CES 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree for Smart Arming.
