View and Control Live Video With The Apple TV App
Similar to the Fire TV app, with the new Apple TV app, Cloud Video Monitoring subscribers can stream live video from their Alarm.com cameras to their TV. You can instantly see what’s happening around the home right from the TV – without getting up from the couch! Subscribers can view up to four simultaneous streams on the screen at one time. If a user has more than 4 streams, then feeds will rotate out every 10, 20, or 30 seconds depending on the user’s preference. A 4th generation Apple TV is needed to use the new app.
Pebble App Update, Introducing Support for Pebble Time Smartwatch
Originally launched in 2014 as the first smart home app for Pebble, the newly updated app lets subscribers arm and disarm the smart home security system, control locks, garage door, lights and thermostats, view the home’s activity history and more. For Pebble Time users, our updated app makes great use of the watch’s color screen, with color-coded icons that clearly show the status of devices around the home. On opening the app, you’ll see your home’s arming status right away, with other features shown in a quick list: just click into any of them to interact with your home. The app is compatible with Pebble Watch, Pebble Time and Pebble Steel, and Pebble works with both iOS and Android mobile phones.
