Video Analytics

Alarm.com Video Analytics continuously scans a property and sends enhanced notifications with thumbnail images showing people, vehicles, and animals. Push notifications are the best way to receive alerts on activity at your home when the following occurs:

  • A vehicle pulls into the driveway or a person walks up the front steps
  • Anyone loiters in a specific zone of a property
  • A pet jumps up on the sofa or enters an off-limits flowerbed
  • A child leaves the yard or someone drives off at night

Video Analytics can spot what is important, even if there is a lot going on. You can easily set up recording rules for video analytics via the portal or mobile app. Follow the steps below in the Customer Portal or Customer App to get started.


  • Log into the Customer Website
