A smart home. We live in a great time where we can have reasonably good control and notification over most things and areas of our home. Also, there is usually an app to go with it as well. Many of the platforms, however, including Google and Apple, are still in my opinion, the experimental, “work in progress” stage. Without going to the next level, the multi, multi-thousand-dollar level, IE control 4, Savant, Crestron, etc., Alarm.com stands above the rest. You can control:

  • Locks
  • Lights
  • Outlets
  • Switches
  • Garage door
  • Thermostats
  • Appliances
  • Access Control (commercial)
  • Doorbell
  • Cameras
  • An array of wellness products
  • Products to assist with elderly or disabled care
  • Irrigation systems

And more…..

Additionally, all these things can be controlled from one app and they work seamlessly together including the ability to have rules that allow for multifunctional control over each other.
