Alarm.com will be ending support of the Voice Notifications service package add-on in November 2023 due to limited usage of this feature.
What were Voice Notifications (for Alarms)? An Alarm.com security solution that allows homeowners to receive real-time spoken alerts about alarm events on their property. When an alarm is triggered, the Alarm.com system can send an automated voice notification to the homeowner’s designated phone number, informing them of the type of alarm and the location of the event. This provides homeowners with immediate awareness of potential security breaches, so they can take the necessary action to protect their property and family.
What were Voice Notifications (for Non-Alarms)? An Alarm.com security solution that allows homeowners to receive voice notifications for various non-alarm events, such as when a door is left open, when the temperature in the house is too high or low, or when a light is turned on or off. These notifications help homeowners stay informed about important events in their home and can be customized to their preferences. With Alarm.com’s non-alarm voice notifications, homeowners can also receive alerts for events like the arrival of a package, when a visitor arrives, or when someone turns on the stove or oven. The possibilities for these types of voice notifications are endless and can be tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of each individual homeowner.
Once the feature is turned off, the “Voice Notifications for Alarms” and “Voice Notifications for Non-Alarms” add-ons will no longer be available for selection for users and will be removed from all existing GeoArm accounts.
We recommend that GeoArm customers who want to receive automated notifications subscribe to email or push notifications. And, keep in mind that our central station monitoring services are the preferred solution for customers who want to be notified via a landline phone number.
