TYSONS, Va.—Alarm.com announced today the opening of its Demo House, a state-of-the-art, 1,700-square-foot smart home in Falls Church, Va.

“We know that consumers are excited about the possibilities of the smart home,” Alison Slavin, co-founder and senior vice-president, Creation Lab, at Alarm.com, said in the announcement. “To help educate and inform people, we turned a neighborhood bungalow into a state-of-the-art smart home. We created a realistic demonstration center that shows everything a smart home can do when it runs on a single platform like Alarm.com. From proactive smart home security with video monitoring and automated locks, to lights and shades controlled by voice and multi-device Scenes commands, you’ll find it here under one roof, controlled by one app.”

Open to Alarm.com’s partners, the media and consumers, Alarm.com created the Demo House as a new way to demonstrate the benefits of its smart home security technology.  The house is equipped with a full suite of next-generation home automation technology including a smart security system with integrated energy management, video monitoring, access control, independent living and home automation solutions.

Connected devices in the home include a smart thermostat with remote temperature sensing, as well as locks, lights, video doorbells, garage door opener, shades, water control, voice assistants and more. Devices are intelligently connected through Alarm.com’s cloud platform and mobile apps for an integrated, advanced smart home experience.

Alarm.com expects to welcome a wide range of visitors to the Demo House, with tours and briefings for journalists, bloggers, media influencers and industry analysts. The Demo House will also host Alarm.com’s service provider partners who bring Alarm.com’s solutions to market, and leading hardware partner brands whose connected devices Alarm.com integrates into its solutions.

Around the property, visitors can experience a complete range of the latest smart home and business technologies. In addition, the home features an independent living solution that monitors activity patterns, alerts loved ones or caregivers about dangerous situations, and offers detailed insights into quality of life.

The demo also highlights smart business security, including fully integrated, commercial-grade connected devices that enable small- and medium-sized business owners to securely and efficiently manage their businesses from anywhere using Alarm.com.
