Re-Introducing Alarm.com for Android Auto™

Re-Introducing Alarm.com’s Android Auto integration for a unified car-to-home experience.

Alarm.com successfully rolled out a new feature, called “Android Auto”, to GeoArm’s monitored customers early this year. This new feature empowers Android users with a seamless connection to ‍Alarm‍.com‍ smart home and security controls right on their car display.

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
  • Remotely open and close garage doors, plus see the status right on the screen
  • Stay in the know with on-screen, real-time alerts of important system activity and reminders

With Android Auto, customers can now bring ‍Alarm.‍com‍ along for the ride for a unified car-to-home experience. To use Android Auto on their car display, customers will need an Android Auto compatible vehicle or aftermarket stereo, an Android phone running 6 or higher, and the Android Auto app.

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.

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!
