GET AFTER SCHOOL PEACE OF MIND WITH SMARTHOME TECHNOLOGY


Smart home security is a back-to-school essential for many working families with older children. 

With an array of after-school safeguards for your kids, it delivers peace of mind throughout the school year and for years to come. Your kids can even grow into it as they become more independent.

Fewer keys means fewer worries 


As soon as your kids are old enough to arrive home on their own, Alarm.com starts making things easier with keyless smart locks and user codes for easy access. 

Unlike keys, user codes can't be dropped, lost on the bus, or left in the door. If forgotten, its owner can ring the doorbell camera and you can unlock the door from work. Like a set of keys, however, your child's first user code can still confer a sense of responsibility that they'll love.

Technology makes check-ins less challenging 


With every school year, your kids grow a little more independent. Meanwhile, you worry just as much as you ever did, and you need to know they're okay after school. 

Your Alarm.com app is here to help, offering peace of mind via quick, visual check-ins. You can see a quick snapshot from any Image Sensor, view a live feed from your indoor or outdoor cameras, and even get front-door video clips of your kids arriving home. 

If you prefer a hands-off approach, Alarm.com also offers a range of custom alerts for specific activity and events, such as the kids not arriving home on time, or even the video game cabinet being open for too long.

Smart reminders ensure that your house stays secure 


As kids get older, they have more going on, which means they forget things. Unfortunately, this often includes securing the house when they're last to leave. 

Alarm.com can help with actionable smartphone reminders. Once your teens have their own Alarm.com app, your house can remind them directly if a door isn't locked, or the garage is open, or the security system isn't armed when it should be. They'll be able to fix things quickly with a remote command.

HELLO? SEE & TALK TO THE VISITOR AT THE FRONT DOOR


Your front doorway is a busy place. With visitors introducing themselves, your kids charging to and from the school bus, packages arriving, and hellos and goodbyes galore, it's hard for you to keep track of everyone who passes through. 

It's no wonder that doorbell cameras are now a smart home must-have, thanks to their ability to show you who's at the door, no matter where you are. 


And with a ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera, that's just the start. 

Because these doorbell cameras are fully integrated into your smart home security system, they're powered by Alarm.com and able to cooperate with other devices. That gives you and your family more ways to incorporate your doorbell camera into your everyday life. 

Answer the Door from Anywhere


A ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera gives you a safe, smart way to see who's at the door, no matter where you are. 

When a visitor rings the doorbell, you get an Alarm.com smartphone alert. Open your Alarm.com app and you'll see a video feed of who's there, with a microphone icon that you can press to start a voice conversation through the doorbell. 

Although you can see your visitor, they can't see you, and you don't need to indicate whether you're home or not. Given that burglars often ring a home's doorbell before a break-in, this makes your video doorbell a great crime deterrent

Protect a Package from Thieves 


With a smart lock included in your Alarm.com-powered setup, you can go a step further and unlock your door remotely. This is great for protecting valuable deliveries that would otherwise be left on your porch. 

If you have a smart lock, you'll see an ‘unlock' icon in your app underneath your doorbell's video feed. Once you've verified the delivery person visually, tap once to unlock your door and ask them to leave the package inside. When they're done, use your app to lock your door and watch them leave. 

See and Share Suspicious Activity


A ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera is also a full smart home security camera, ready to capture and send you footage of suspicious activity in your front yard or porch area. 

A visitor to your porch will trigger a motion-activated video recording, even if they don't press the doorbell. You can have these clips delivered to your phone right away, where they're easy to download and forward to your partner, neighbors or local police department. 

Keep Up with Your Kids


Crooks and intruders aside, most activity at your front door is ‘good' activity: friends visiting and family arriving home. Alarm.com makes it easy to keep up. 

It's easy to create a custom doorbell camera alert, triggered by your kids' Alarm.com user codes, that sends you a video clip of your kids arriving home every day. It's a great way to make sure they're home safe and know who they're with. Once your kids know they're on camera, they might even give you a wave. 

PS: It's Also a Doorbell 


Sometimes, you just need a doorbell. You'll be pleased to hear that a ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera goes above and beyond, with both an audible chime and a special ‘Do Not Disturb' option that parents of young children will love

Instead of waking a napping youngster with an audible chime when pushed, your video doorbell will simply trigger a silent smartphone alert that only disturbs you. 

Want to Upgrade to a ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera? 

If you already have an Alarm.com-powered smart home security system, Reed Security or a Reed Security Authorized Dealer can quickly upgrade you with a doorbell camera or other smart devices, including indoor and outdoor video cameras, smart locks and even a smart thermostat.

ReedHD™ Doorbell Plans start at $14.95/mo.*

GET SMARTER VIDEO ALERTS WITH ALARM.COM

Smart video monitoring is a modern security essential. With video alerts, live security camera feeds and 24-hour recording options, video makes it easy to stay in the know about important activity at your home or business. 


With Alarm.com's newly launched video analytics service, it can be even more valuable. 

Video analytics is a highly intelligent security feature that monitors your property's video streams to distinguish important events from routine activity. It uses this real-time insight to filter and categorize your video alerts, giving your video monitoring a new level of control, customization and value. 



Video analytics uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence, developed by our computer vision research team for home and business security. It can tell whether a moving object in your driveway is a person, an animal or a vehicleIt can ignore a person who quickly visits your front door and then leaves (the mailman), but alert you if a visitor lingers too long in the same place. It makes these distinctions in real time before alerting you—or not—according to your preferences. 

Video analytics also lets you create virtual "zones" and multi-directional "tripwires" for your cameras, enabling it to further categorize activity based on the layout of your home or business and the areas you need to protect. You can know when: 

Vehicles come and go: Know when a vehicle stops outside your home, but not every time a vehicle drives past. 

Visitors linger: Get a video alert if someone lingers by your front door, but not when the mail is delivered. 

Pets break the rules: Know if your pet breaks the rules to nap on the couch when you're at work—or if your neighbor's dog pays an unwelcome visit to your lawn. 

Video analytics is the latest in a line of proactive, intelligent safeguards developed by Alarm.com to keep your home or business safer, including Crash and Smash protection,  Unexpected Activity Alerts and Geo-Services triggers. 

If you're interested in activating video analytics, contact Reed Security a Reed Security Authorized Dealer to learn about security camera and service plan options.
