View and share Highlights for a system

Use Highlights to quickly get up to speed on what is happening at home while away with a visual summary of key events in a compelling story format with short video clips and animated icons. It is easy to see when people leave the house in the morning, who armed the house, when the mail was delivered, and more.

Note: Events that display in Highlights are automatically generated as the day goes on and represent a summary of daily activity. All events that occur during the day may not be included in Highlights.

Highlights can be viewed using the Alarm.com app and Alarm.com customer website. You can also choose to download or share Highlights using the Alarm.com app. 

NoteHighlights events cannot be customized and the availability of each highlight is dependent on the equipment enrolled in your system.
