With the holidays over, we are in the longest months of winter. The mood is dampened with chilly
weather and long nights. It is a difficult time for all, and – based upon the climate in which you reside –
winter may bring many homeownership challenges.
As you hunker down for the winter, consider the way you’ll shield your home these months, and how
your home can defend you. With professionally installed Alarm.com technology, you’ll always have the
solution in hand.
1. Take the heat from your winter heating bill
Making your home cozy throughout the winter months tends to drive up the heating bills, but there are
smart ways to keep them down. Alarm.com’s smart thermostat helps maximize energy efficiency with
automatic savings based on whether you’re home or not.

Alarm.com, you might have your lights turn on when there’s an individual or automobile outside, but
not when it is just a passing deer. Our video analytics can spot the difference.
Don’t go it alone on fire and carbon monoxide safety
The perfect cold, winter night may include sitting by a crackling fireplace with a warm drink accessible. It
is better whenever you can head to bed without feeling anxious about fire or smoke hazards.
In case your Alarm.com-powered smoke detectors detect a fire or carbon monoxide leak in the night,
your system will turn on your lights to ensure a safe flow to shutting down your heating and air
conditioning system to prevent ash and fumes from spreading. While also alerting your monitoring
station to call the local 911 dispatcher for you.
