Take smart home technology. It's great to control a device with an app, but when you have to download a separate app for each connected device in your home, you end up with a complicated mess, reminiscent of those days when you had five remotes on your coffee table.
There is a better alternative: a smart home security system powered by Alarm.com. It connects an entire ecosystem of smart home devices together and comes with a single app to interact with all of them.
You can access and control not only your security system, but also a smart thermostat, door locks, lights, the garage door and more. When you open the app, your smartphone becomes a command center for your entire home.
