One of the big reasons iPhone and iPad users are so devoted is the easy, intuitive integration with thousands of dependable and easy-to-use apps. That's why the Brinks Home Security app is so appealing: It lets either device control almost every function of your home security alarm system and smart-home automation.
The perfect interaction
With compatible equipment and interactive functionality from Alarm.com, the Brinks Home Security app lets you manage your home from virtually anywhere. Go beyond the traditional home security alarm and add home security cameras, lights, locks, thermostats, garage-door openers and other devices to your system. After that, all it takes is a swipe or a tap to control your security and home automation devices and be aware of what s happening at
a moment's notice.
More than basic security
The Brinks Home Security app allows you to interact with your home security alarm system whether you're upstairs or uptown. Use our smart home solution to arm or disarm your system, lock or unlock doors, check the garage
door, or use a video doorbell to see who s there. There s no need to worry about forgetting to secure your house; just check it from wherever you are.
An extra set of eyes
Home security cameras are a popular addition to Brinks Home Security. Live or recorded video let you know what's going on while you're not home. It's easy to keep an eye on kids, pets or property.
Smart thermostats are popular not just for convenience but for energy savings. Control your thermostat remotely, set up a schedule that fits your lifestyle, or let your thermostat determine your patterns and adjust
accordingly to maximize savings.
Control your lights
Remote management of your lighting is another great way to save energy. It's also a proven deterrent to would-be burglars, since they like it when no one's home. Keep them wondering by setting a schedule or by turning lights
on throughout your smart home when it gets dark and you're running late.
Just the beginning
Geo-fencing, which uses your location to automatically take useful actions while you're out. These range from real-time notifications such as a garage door that s been left open to functions like adjusting your thermostator turning on your lights. Just define a circular "geo-fence" in your Brinks Home Security app and let your smartphone do the rest.
Real-time email, text, and push notifications for potential emergencies, such as home security alarms, break-ins, and equipment failures.
Notification for specific events, such as when your kids get home from school, or when your housekeeper or petsitter are in the house.
Note: This app requires you to have a compatible smart-home system and interactive Alarm.com service plan. Feature availability varies based on system, equipment, and service plan. Visit www.brinkshome.com for more
• Interface improvements for the Image Sensor. For the latest (version 3) Image Sensor, the app now automatically scrolls through the frames, creating an animation of each captured event. Pause and start the image playback by tapping on the image.

Ratings and Reviews
I love it
I have used this app for months and have not run into these same issues as stated above. If app crashes a simple force close, which you’re suppose to do with every app you use, and everything is back to normal. Of course no app is perfect, every app will crash at some point.
Since changing to Brinks, I am becoming more frustrated and worried for future security issues if they may arise. As stated by many users, I can log in to my account on my desk top but get an error message when using the app. When I called Brinks I was transferred to the tech dept. and was actually told they haven’t heard of any log in issues. If they can’t fix a problem this small what kind of excuses will I get when I have a real security problem. Either fix it or take it off.
The app will not accept the exact same login/password that I use successfully on the desktop site. I tried multiple times on consecutive months and am CERTAIN that I keyed it in correctly.
When I tried using the app to reset my password, it told me to check for an email with a reset link. The email never arrived, not in my inbox, junk, or spam folders. Again, I tried multiple times.
I gave up and now only use the browser site.
