Yes, if you have an alarm with an indoor siren or maybe just normal fire alarms, Alarmhandler is an excellent extension of your alarm. Most IP cameras have built-in microphones and can be set to detect when the sound for instance exceeds 90dB. This makes it possible to remotely monitor your existing alarm, even though it might be an older model without ability to send SMS etc. And with Alarmhandler, you can now visually validate your alarms – so no more going home to a false alarm.
If you’ve got a existing alarm that just a few year old, it’e likely to support SMS control. This means you can control the alarm by sending command messages via SMS from your phone. Alarmhandler is able to do so on your behalf. If you’ve setup which type of SMS alarm you have and which number it has, the app will send the correct SMS message to arm/partly arm, or disarm the alarm.
