Alarm.com’s Expanding Products

During the quarter, Alarm.com announced the launch of its new device Flex I/O. Flex I/O is a security sensor that can run as a standalone unit, not requiring a connection to a control panel, hub, or WiFi network. While it can exist on its own, it also as the capability to be fully integrated into a previously existing multi-sensor control panel environment. It has been integrated with an LTE CAT-M and a cellular communication capability. By making it battery powered, Alarm.com allows for it to be deployed anywhere.

Flex I/O has been designed for both indoor and outdoor applications. It can take care of extended security and awareness to any location on the property, as well as other, more distant properties. It addresses new security use cases for the company. It expands its reach into areas where existing sensors and devices that are directly connected to the control panel via low-voltage wires are not enough. For instance, residential subscribers can now monitor driveway gates or pool gates, detached garages, remote storage units, and other such locations. Similarly, within the commercial market, subscribers can leverage the service to create personalized alerts and use the event data on the sensors to trigger Alarm.com automation scenarios and video recordings.
