I couldnt find any big consumer complaints, scandals, etc.
I’m renting a home which unfortunately comes equipped with an Alarm.com setup. I can turn it off at any time, but apparently that is a massive pain because at the moment the property management uses a master access code on the front door to get in if I have a maintenance request. I wont have maintenance requests, but if I unplug this crap or stop paying for it, they’ll have to come over, remove all the hardware, and reinstall normal hardware.
It would be a big pain in the ass. This system has an automatic front door lock and automatic temp control. I find this to be a security issue, but I’m wondering if anyone has seen anything that would prove this may also be a privacy issue? There are no advertised cameras or microphones, but for all I know this thing listens in on me for marketing purposes. None of this connects to the home network, it all connects to a cell plan that is seperate from my own.
