Can only use when connected to home WiFi

I for some reason have to have my husband arm our house if I leave my driveway before doing so. Before I leave I sit in the driveway to set it which can be somewhat taxing if I’m running late or my baby is not happy to be in the car and always settles once the vehicle is moving. There was a period where the app wasn’t following any of my arming commands via my Apple Watch nor my iPhone, but now both work as long as I’m in the driveway. My husband has set it wherever though. I think I emailed customer support. I also have tried logging out and back in and deleting the app and re downloading but nothing has worked. When I did try to find help about this issue via the app and the site I could not find any information on how to fix it. It would be outrageously convenient to be able to arm it with my watch, but I’ll settle for some guidance on whether it only works via WiFi, one’s home network, or if I need to adjust another setting or account. This app is extremely efficient, however, which is very comforting having a baby, and yesterday the battery was low and it promptly informed me via text message and my husband, it did send me a whopping 15 texts which I didn’t think was necessary especially because I was in the home the entire time, but nonetheless I’d rather it send that many than none. So thanks for your service, a couple tweeks, broader access to troubleshooting, and I’d easily give it a 5 star rating.

Thank you for reaching out to us, Autumn, we can help! It sounds like the setting that allows the app to use cellular data has been toggled off somehow. This is easy to find though. Go to your phone settings, then scroll down until you find Alarm.com and select it. You should see a toggle for Cellular Data which needs to be toggled to the right for it to be active. If you email our team they can provide some details on why you received so many low battery messages along with tips for anything else you're curious about. Please contact us at Questions@Alarm.com, and if you include "iOS App Review" in the subject line, our support team will be able to prioritize your message.

Great but needs these features...

Great app, but i held a star back because a couple features are missing I feel should be there. The first is a panic button or being able to alert police, fire, or a medical emergency from the app itself. The other is being able to exclude sensors while arming my system. I can do either of these things from my alarm system panel, so I would expect to see them here. I kind of thought that’s where scenes would play a role for my second concern, but it doesn’t appear to work that way. Please let me know if I’ve missed these features somehow or I’d love to know if these features are coming later. I will gladly update my rating.

Thank you!

Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you are looking for from our service. We're always looking to add features and support for things our end users want. For the In App Panic, we can direct you to Alarm.com/Blog where you will find a story about our award winning Smart Signal feature. Once you know more about it you'll need to reach out to your security provider to let them know you are interested in having it added to your services. For the option to select which sensors to bypass while you are arming your system through our app, we can't make any promises except to pass this along to our engineers. Please keep in mind while we want to offer all the things our customers want, we are sometimes limited by the capabilities of the hardware. That said, if it's something we can do, we will try our best.

Scammers Extradonaire

Please please please do not use this company! The non-English understanding folks used in customer care are inept and app is constantly logging me out of my account. This app is really crappy! Now my finger login won’t work as of today! Wow. Can’t log in via app therefore my alarm will blare every single time I come home, open my door to disarm. That alone should be a deterrent for all who are considering this service. If the alarm does not beep to give warning & time to disarm the system, that indicates a subpar system. I have been consistently disappointed with this Company and it’s services for $60/month. Not certain what they’re monitoring because the police have NEVER EVER EVER IN THE HISTORY OF NEVER been to my home during an active alarm. I have had 3. BUYER BEWARE.

**AND PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THE EMAIL THAT SAYS THEY WILL WAIVE 60, 70, 80, 100% of your past due bill! IT IS A SCAM AND THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTIONS ON WAIVING ANY PAYMENT NOR PORTION OF THE BILL DURING THIS PANDEMIC TIME. IT IS A BLATANT LIE TO GET YOU TO CALL SO THEY MAY BADGER YOU ABOUT PAYMENT AND TO VERIFY YOUR INFO! This Company is a lying scamming piece of... you will NOT GET ANY PORTION OF YOUR BILL WAIVED—ESPECIALLY THE PERCENTAGE AMOUNT LIED ABOUT IN THEIR PAYMENT EMAIL! Do not fall for the scam folks.
