Overview: iSmartAlarm is an expandable, do-it-yourself home security
system with no contracts or monthly fees. The free iSmartAlarm app (for iPhone
and Android) allows you to completely control the system with your smartphone
and your home's Internet connection. Through the app, you can monitor doors and
windows, motion, or activity within your home. This iSmartAlarm
Preferred Package is ideal for an apartment, dorm, or small house. It contains
the CubeOne alarm brain with siren, a Motion Sensor, 2 Contact Sensors, and 2
Remote Tags. Additional sensors and optional devices, such as
KEEP, iCamera, and
Switch (all sold separately) can be used in your iSmartAlarm Home Security
iSmartAlarm App: The iSmartAlarm app allows you use your smartphone to
arm, disarm, and monitor your security system in real time from virtually
anywhere. From the app, you can determine the status of your motion and contact
sensors, view live streaming video from optional cameras, and tell which family
members are at home or have left. When a break-in or unauthorized activity is
detected, the app will alert you (and other authorized users) via a phone call
(US or Canadian telephone number),
text message, push notification, or email. The iSmartAlarm app is available from
the Apple App Store and Google Play for iPhone/iPad (iOS 6.0 or later) and
Android devices (version 4.0 and up).
Alarm System Modes: The iSmartAlarm Home Security System has
four main modes:
- Arm: Setting the system to Arm activates all of the
installed Contact Sensors and Motion Sensors. If any of the sensors are
triggered, the built-in siren in the CubeOne will activate.
- Disarm: When Disarm is pressed on the app or a Remote
Tag, all sensors are deactivated. The Disarm button can also turn off the
siren after the alarm is triggered or the Panic Button pressed.
- Home: The Home Mode allows you to turn off the Motion
Sensors, but keep the Contact Sensors active. This allows you to stay secure
at home without triggering the alarm when you move about the house.
- Panic: When you double-tap the Panic button twice, the
siren is activated and a push notification is sent to all members on your
- Custom Modes: Custom modes can be created to your own
customized set of sensors that can trigger the alarm.
CubeOne: The CubeOne is the "brain" of the iSmartAlarm system, and
communicates with the sensors via Wi-Fi. It contains a 110dB siren to warn away
intruders and alert you to a security breach. CubeOne can notify you via email,
text, or phone in case of an emergency. CubeOne is powered by a DC power supply
(included), and connects to your Wi-Fi router via the supplied Ethernet cable.
Motion Sensor: The included Motion Sensor can be placed in a wide
variety of places, including entryways, home office, garage, or basement. It is
able to detect motion anywhere within approximately 30 feet. It is recommended
that the sensor be wall-mounted approximately 6-1/2 feet off the floor, and tilted forward about
15°. It communicates wirelessly via Wi-Fi with the CubeOne, which will alert you
when motion is detected. Wireless range is approximately 300 feet. The Motion
Sensor is powered by three "AA" batteries (installed). You can attach the
detector to the wall using the two screws and wall anchors, or the dual-sided
Contact Sensors: Two Contact Sensors are included in the
iSmartAlarm Preferred Package. Each sensor consists of two parts--a magnet and a
sensor--which can be easily placed at any door or window using the dual-sided
adhesive pads. One part is mounted on the door or window and the other part on
the frame in close proximity (within 3/4") to create a magnetic contact. When
the door or window is opened (or otherwise moved), the magnetic contact is lost,
causing the sensor to send a signal to the CubeOne alarm brain to trigger an
alert. Contact Sensors can also be used to detect the opening of a refrigerator,
liquor cabinet, gun cabinet, drawers, or a pool gate. Contact Sensors are
powered by a 3-volt CR2032 battery.
Remote Tags: The Preferred Package includes two Remote Tags,
which can be used as a remote control and a sensor simultaneously. You can give
a Remote Tag to anyone in the family to use as a dedicated identification key.
For those family members who don't have a smartphone, the Remote Tag lets them
control the system, and be monitored. As a remote, it has Arm and Disarm
buttons, Home Mode button, and a Panic button. The Panic button can be used to
trigger the alarm (and alert all members with the app) in case of an intruder or
emergency situation, or a fall or medical emergency. As a sensor, you can use
the Remote Tag to track the location of your children or pets. Each time the
Remote Tag enters or leaves the monitored area, the event is logged in the Safety Monitor section of the app,
identifying the tag holder and the time they entered/left the area. Remote Tags
are powered by a 3-volt CR2032 battery.
