Alarm.com has announced the availability of a free application that enables iPhone and iPod touch users to perform home and business security monitoring right from the portable device. According to its makers, the Alarm.com app provides complete awareness of what’s happening at their properties in real time.

The provider of wireless and web-enabled security and monitoring technology reveals that its free iPhone app connects customers to their security systems from anywhere. Consumers can use the app to remotely arm and disarm their security system, watch real-time video footage and recorded video clips showing events that happened while they were away, and even see where there has recently been motion activity at their property. Alarm.com also includes the ability to provide real-time email and text message alerts to one's device whenever the security system detects an event.

“Our customers love that the iPhone or iPod touch in their pocket can also serve as a remote control to their business or home security system from anywhere in the world,” Alison Slavin, Alarm.com’s vice president of Product Management, said. “We’re excited to continue developing applications on the iPhone platform that further empower consumers to monitor what matters to them – whether it’s an aging or ailing family member, their household’s thermostat settings, or how much time the dog walker actually spent walking their dog.”

According to the App Store description of the app, the main features include:

– Send commands to arm or disarm your security system remotely;
– See what doors and windows are open in real-time;
– See where there has recently been motion activity at your property;
– Watch live video from your security cameras;
– View video clips recorded by your security cameras;
