Your kitchen's refrigerator may be a free-for-all, but the contents of your man cave's fridge are yours alone. You can protect your refreshments with a discreet contact sensor on the fridge door. When opened, it will send you a smartphone alert. You can also customize these alerts so you only get them if you're not home.
This also works great on liquor and snack cabinets .... keeps pecky mice and TEENAGERS away!
With Alarm.com in your home, you can make any light or lamp "smart"—even if it's shaped like a woman's leg—by connecting it to a smart plug. Your lights (or neon beer sign) will be responsive to both smartphone commands and automation triggers, such as your man cave's door being opened.
When your friends come round to see what's up with your new technology, the first thing they might notice is the new doorbell on your front door. If you think they'll be impressed when they hear you talking to them through the speaker via your phone, just wait until you unlock the front door and let them in, only to reveal you've been on the couch the whole time. If the doorbell rings during the game, you'll know if the pizza has arrived or if it's a salesperson who you can send on their way right through the app.
Alarm.com smart thermostat in your home gives you the option of a remote temperature sensor on the wall of your man cave. When the game begins and the temperature gets heated, this tiny wall device communicates with the main thermostat to keep you comfortable.
Enjoy the game! And when game day is over, you'll enjoy a smarter, safer home all year round, with monitored home security, energy savings, and all of the benefits of a full smart home.
