Alarm.com releases Smart Home App for Apple Watch
Alarm.com announced availability of its Apple Watch app recently. Alarm.com leverages the device's unique features and form factor to enhance the smart home experience. With Apple Watch, Alarm.com users can know what's happening in their home at a glance and control all of their smart devices.
The Alarm.com app for Apple Watch delivers new ways to connect with the smart home. Users can control all of their connected devices, including the security system, thermostat, lights, locks and garage door from the Apple Watch. The Alarm.com app for Apple Watch offers a Glance for a quick view of the status of the security system, locks and garage door, and users can easily see what’s going on at home with live video feeds right on their wrist.
“Alarm.com is excited to deliver one of the first native apps for the Apple Watch,” said Daniel Kerzner, Alarm.com’s Chief Product Officer. “Our app uses the new capability and unique form factor of Apple Watch to enable great use cases for today’s multi-device Smart Home through an efficient and intuitive user experience. As leaders in the smart home space, Alarm.com is focused on delivering innovative, first to market solutions that connect consumers to their home in new ways, today and tomorrow.”
Alarm.com combines reminders, alerts, and automation triggers to make it simple to keep the smart home secure while on the go. Location-based reminders alert the homeowner if they forgot to arm the security system, lock the door or close the garage. A single tap on the alert resolves the problem. Alarm.com amplifies a single action on the watch into a series of responses all across the home. Arming the security system can trigger the lights and thermostat to adjust for efficiency, the garage to close and doors to lock.
