Alarm.com, a technology provider for the connected home, won the Consumer Electronic Association’s (CEA) Mark of Excellence Award for its Geo-Services technology. The Mark of Excellence Award for the Energy Efficiency Product of the Year was presented as part of the 2014 International CES.
Using a homeowner’s location, Geo-Services improves smart thermostats by eliminating the guesswork and making automation completely effortless. Geo-Services provides a smarter way to manage home energy use by automatically optimizing for saving when users are away and comfort when they are home.
While most smart thermostats guess about activity around the house by looking into one room, Alarm.com analyzes a variety of unique data to optimize energy management for efficiency and comfort. With Geo-Services, the user is in control and can opt-in by enrolling their smart phone. Now, whenever the user is away, the home can adjust to save energy and readjust to a comfortable temperature upon return. There is no need to remember to pull out an app, change the thermostat or adjust settings when your schedule unexpectedly changes or when you go out of town–Geo-Services takes care of it automatically.
Geo-Services also recognizes multiple smart phones so automations are made with the entire family in mind, and it’s integrated into the Alarm.com services platform to deliver custom security alerts and improved video monitoring through smarter automation.
