How to Set Up Alarm.com’s Santa Security Feature
To catch Santa in your home, you will need the latest version of the Alarm.com app, and a compatible Alarm.com home security camera*.
Santa Security Steps
1: Open your Alarm.com app. Select a live video feed from a compatible Alarm.com security camera in your home.
2: Tap the Santa icon in the video feed to get a still image from your security camera.
3: Choose a Santa from the menu to add to your snapshot. You will see full-color images of the real Santa for a daytime snapshot, and black and white options for nighttime. You can resize and move Santa if you need to.
4: Surprise your family. When your children wake you up at 5:30 am on Christmas morning, show them your snapshot.
5: Share the magic! Share your Santa snapshots with family and friends by email, text, and social media (hashtag: #SantaSecurity).
*To tell if your security camera is compatible with Santa Security, open your Alarm.com app and look for a Santa icon in the top right corner of the camera’s live video feed. All compatible cameras will show this icon.
Don’t have Santa Security? Set up a Santa Alert instead.
A genuine Santa Alert from your smart home security system is another way to show your kids that Santa visited. All you need is your Alarm.com app, your web dashboard, and a single contact sensor.
