top advantages of the alarm com connected car

If you love your smart home technologies, it is time to check out the Alarm Com Connected Car. The solution offers all the benefits of a vehicle monitoring solution plus the unique benefit of deep integration with the smart home security system.

Here are the top advantages of the Alarm Com Connected Car for you to know.


Connected Car is compatible with most cars manufactured since 1996.

Easy Installation

The Connected Car device plugs into a vehicle’s OBD-II port for easy self-installation. Connected Car uses a dedicated cellular connection and has a battery backup, so it communicates with the home system and the user, even when the vehicle’s engine is off. 

Driving Insights

Connected Car provides driving insights such as fuel efficiency, average speed, and excessive speed alerts. This is ideal for those that are frequent drivers or who have new drivers at home. 


With CalAmp’s telematics technology integrated with the solution, users can create rules so they receive notifications about specific vehicle details or activity, such as:

  • Diagnostics and potential repairs (check engine light on, low battery or low fuel)
  • Driving Behavior (sudden acceleration, hard braking, excessive speeding)
  • Unexpected Movement (vehicle moves while the engine is off, indicating it may have been towed, crashed into, or stolen)

Home Insights

Alerts are sent to your mobile device if they leave without closing the garage door or locking the front door of their home.


Vehicles with Connected Car installed can be added to a user’s existing Alarm. com-powered smart home security system to trigger automation rules and reminders using the vehicle’s location. For example, lights turn on, and the temperature adjusts as you arrive home. 

If you’re interested in keeping an eye on the family fleet and having more home control, Car Connect GPS solutions are a great add-on to any system.
