Turn your old phones into an alarm system
Alarmhandler is like no other security system you've seen. It integrates SMS based alarm systems, IP cameras, and old phones of any make into a cohesive alarm system controlled by one app. Signup for a free 30 day camera surveillance trial in the app, no credit card required. If you just use the app to control your SMS alarm, it's free, forever.
1. Simple and intuitive app to control your alarm
- Easy to operate, tap icons to turn ON/OFF
- Or use our geofence based auto ON/OFF mode for camera surveillance
- Controls all IP cams and phones running our sensor app in the estate, any make/model
- Also able to control SMS based alarms, just tap ON in the app to activate both the SMS alarm and the camera surveillance
- We only store recordings when alarm is ON
2. Unbeatable price because we eliminated costly elements of traditional alarm services
- No expensive hardware required - reuse old phones or buy your own inexpensive IP cams
- No staffed control room - we use automated alarm monitoring, eg get notified if camera goes offline
- No paid security guards - your family or invited friends can verify an alarm and let the police handle the rest
3. Know if anything happens to your home
- Immediate notification if smoke alarm sirens go off or motion is detected when you are not at home
- Know if your home is safe for your kids to go home to after school
- Don’t worry about leaving the pet at home
4. Helps you determine if an alarm is real or not
- Play recording from smartphone to determine if the alarm is real or not
- Got existing alarm that sends false alarms? Extend it with Alarmhandler to validate the alarms
- No more going home on a false alarm
- Possibility to e-mail recordings to yourself for safe keeping
5. Automatic on/off using geofencing
- Stores a virtual fence 100m from your estate on the phone
- When crossing the fence, the app briefly awakens and makes a short and energy-efficent call to the Alarmhandler servers
- Based on how many persons are inside and outside the fence, the servers switch camera surveillance on or off
- Never forget to turn on your alarm again!
6. Safely respond to an event
- Follow built-in best practice guideline for handling break-in or fire
- Comment field to document how situation was handled
- Everything recorded in timestamped log that cannot be altered
7. Form a neighbourhood watch group
- Offer your assistance as a responder for others on the street
- Invite persons offering their help in the system, or anyone else by e-mail
- Your network only consists of persons YOU invite - and that accept your invite
- Dial anyone in the group to coordinate straight from the app

Ratings and Reviews
Maybe exactly what I needed?
Thank you so much for this app! I have been waiting for something like this for many years! Got all 3 cameras set up on the app. Took me a while, not your fault had to reset all my cameras. I’ve had my cameras for about 5 years, used many different set ups to record. This was by far the easiest way I’ve used! I am using d-link 5010L cameras so far they seem to be working exactly as expected. I like that they can be set to record only while you are away or all the time. I think the app will be tracking my location? I also like that you can set up whomever you like to check on the action detected. Neighbor can be alerted if you are not nearby. Very cool! Can’t wait to see how well this app continues to work! Not sure how what the price is to continue the cloud monitoring so I gave you 4 stars. I hope it’s not outrageous... thanks so much!
