Buy Inexpensive W-Box Wireless Security Products (319, 345 and 433 MHz)

Sleek and stylish, the W Box Technologies wireless mini door/window contacts and wireless pet-immune motion detectors are manufactured with 319 MHz, 345 MHz, or 433 MHz wireless frequency.

W Box wireless door and window alarm contacts are used as part of a security system to help protect a home or business. They are small devices that are typically installed on doors and windows. When the door or window is closed, the two parts of the contact are together, creating a circuit. When the door or window is opened, the circuit is broken, and the alarm system is triggered. This sends a signal to the control panel, which can then alert the homeowner or security company. These devices are wireless, meaning they don’t require any physical connection to the control panel, making them easier to install and less intrusive. They can be particularly useful in helping to detect unauthorized entry or potential break-ins.

W Box wireless motion detectors are used to detect movement within a certain area. They are typically part of a security system and are used to alert the system when unexpected motion is detected. This could be in a home, office, or any other space that requires security. The detectors work by using infrared technology to sense movement and heat, so if an intruder were to pass by the detector, it would sense the movement and heat of the person and trigger the alarm.

Not only are W Box products inexpensive, they are compatible with most existing 2GIG, Honeywell, DSC, GE, ITI, and Qolsys wireless security systems. With exceptional range and over five years of battery life, powered by a lithium battery, these security products are designed for low maintenance.

Android Auto provides a simple and safer-to-use interface that helps customers drive with fewer distractions so they can be focused on the road ahead while still keeping tabs at home.

Key Features:

  • Activate a Home Scene with just a tap for the perfect homecoming every time
  • Run an Away Scene for a simplified routine when on the go

Alarm.com End-of-Support Notice for GeoArm Voice Notification Customers

Alarm.com End-of-Support Notice for Voice Notifications Services on Alarms and Non-Alarms.

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.


Alarm.com End-of-Life for Google Home and Google Assistant Users

Alarm.com has sunset Google Home and Google Assistant voice assistant services.

Alarm.com alerted GeoArm that it has ended support of conversational actions for Google Home and Google Assistant users back on June 13, 2023. This change ended ‍Alarm. ‍com‍’s support of voice commands for home automation actions using the Google Assistant feature and Google Home device. Simply stated, Google voice assistant devices will no longer work with Alarm.com.

Luckily, with Alarm.com there are other alternatives for voice commands beside using Google. If voice commands are an absolute must for your security system, have peace of mind knowing Alarm.com still supports Siri and Amazon Alexa custom voice shortcuts for it’s users!
