Alarm.com doesn’t work anything like the outdated burglar alarms you’ve seen before. Instead of being tied to the phone line, which can easily be cut and disabled, it works wirelessly through advanced GSM cell phone towers to maintain a continuous, dedicated, and encrypted link.

That makes it more secure, and a great solution if you’ve already replaced your landline with a cell phone or VoIP line. Alarm.com-enabled security systems will even continue functioning for 24+ hours if the power goes out.

How it works:

1. Sensors installed throughout your home or business communicate all activity that takes place even when the system is disarmed.

2. All this info travels wirelessly (via the digital GSM network) in a secure, encrypted signal to the Alarm.com Operations Center.

3. In the event of an alarm, the signal is routed to our central monitoring station for a 24/7 emergency response.
