Digital Document Storage on Mobile

Customers can store copies of important household documents such as appliance manuals, home inspection reports, insurance, and more. Customers can capture or upload photos or files so their documents are always on hand and create convenient custom expiration reminders.

Once added, documents can be swiftly accessed from the new Documents dashboard card on the Alarm.com Alarm.com app home screen. Additionally, Connected Car customers can store their vehicle-related documents alongside their important home documents.

Additional information

  • The document storage feature is not meant to replace physical copies. Customers should check state and local laws to determine which documents to keep on hand at their home, business, and car.
  • Vehicle-related storage uses templates, so customers identify the type of document they are uploading (e.g., driver's license) before entering document details. There are no templates for non-vehicle Digital Document Storage. Customers can upload a photo or file of the document and fill out any other relevant fields.
