Many existing home security systems also can be upgraded to become a modern, smart security system with Alarm.com. Alarm.com is compatible with systems made by DSC, GE Security, Interlogix, Qolsys, and 2GIG.
 

Dedicated Security

Alarm.com provides best-in-class safeguards for the components connected to its security platform, like a dedicated cellular connection.

A dedicated cellular connection ensures the equipment on a customer’s security system will still work even if their phone line, cable, broadband, Wi-Fi, and power are down.
  • Alarm.com’s cellular connection is reserved solely for the security system. It is not shared with other services, and it does not depend on your home’s networking and Wi-Fi.
  • Alarm.com’s cellular connection cannot be physically cut. There is no cable. Should an intruder attack the security panel itself, Alarm.com’s patented Crash and Smash technology will still signal the monitoring station for help.
  • Alarm.com’s security panels feature 24-hour battery backups, so even if a home or business loses power, the system will continue to communicate.

Alarm.com partners with professional, local home security companies
