Because it’s about time that we had more choices, more control, and tighter integrations for professional 3rd party DIY alarm monitoring! A version of this post originally appeared on the Konnected news blog.
Your smart home gets even smarter today with the introduction of 24/7 professional monitoring with Noonlight. Now your SmartThings powered smart home can automatically contact a UL certified, professionally staffed, U.S. based monitoring center whenever a security or smoke/fire emergency is detected. Noonlight agents can dispatch first responders to your home within minutes of an alarm in all 50 U.S. states. The best part is that there are no long-term contracts, no phone line needed, no additional hardware needed, and it only costs $9.99 per month after a one-month free trial!
Don’t play the game of 20 questions in an emergency. When a Noonlight alarm is triggered, we share vital data from your smart home devices with first responders. Noonlight receives detailed information from all of the smart home devices that you authorize, including door/window sensors, motion sensors, smoke detectors, CO detectors, presence sensors, temperature sensors and more. This enables certified Noonlight dispatchers to determine the nature of the emergency, know if anybody is home*, and send the right help quickly.
Other monitoring services only work their own brand of sensors, forcing you to shell out hundreds for new sensors and devices even if you already have perfectly good ones. With Noonlight and Konnected, we embrace the essence of DIY and guarantee compatibility with all of your favorite devices. Noonlight integrates directly with SmartThings and works with any device or automation that works with ST.
Konnected and Noonlight have teamed up to provide you the best possible smart home monitoring service at the lowest cost in the industry. Our native open-source integration with SmartThings keeps you in control. It’s built with the quality, support and attention to detail you’ve come to expect from Konnected and backed by the years of experience and infrastructure of Noonlight. Sign up and get started in minutes – we won’t even ask for your credit card information until your one-month trial is up!
Note: Konnected is NOT engaged in the business of alarm system monitoring or sales of monitoring services. We’ve simply created the software and integrations to make it work!
Noonlight is never upset about a false alarm because it means you’re OK. We understand that smart home systems are not perfect and false alarms do happen. When you first connect Noonlight, you’ll be asked to create a 4-digit PIN. Remember this number! When an alarm is triggered a certified Noonlight dispatcher will text and call you right away. If it’s a false alarm, just provide your PIN and that’s it. If Noonlight can’t get ahold of you, or if you’re able to confirm the emergency, they’ll send help to your home right away.
Remember, there’s no additional hardware to buy, nothing to hook up or plug in, and no commitments whatsoever. Getting started with Noonlight and SmartThings only takes a few minutes and involves installing the open-source SmartApp and a two-minute sign-up flow.
We’ve built the Noonlight SmartApp to work seamlessly with SmartThings in both the new SmartThings app and SmartThings Classic. Connect Noonlight to Smart Home Monitor to trigger an alarm when an intrusion or smoke is detected. Noonlight also appears as a switch in SmartThings that can be switched on using any Routine, Scene, automation or SmartApp including popular 3rd-party apps like WebCoRE, ActionTiles, IFTTT, Alexa and Google Home. With Noonlight integrated with your smart home, help is only a button push, voice command, or automated trigger away.
Home Assistant integration is in the works and will be available soon!
Some home insurance providers offer discounts for professionally monitored alarm and fire safety systems. Noonlight is a UL Certified central station and can provide a certificate for your insurance company upon request. Chat with a Noonlight support representative at http://help.noonlight.com
Noonlight (formerly SafeTrek) was founded in 2013 as a personal safety app for iOS and Android. Since then, Noonlight has redefined the way we think about personal safety and security, enabling the connected devices that we use every day to help keep us safe and automatically call for help in an emergency.
Reference our step by step installation and setup guide below to install and Connect Noonlight to SmartThings:
* Noonlight is in the process of rolling out Smart Home aware context to its support agents. Until fully rolled out, Noonlight agents will confirm the nature of the emergency and who is home when they contact you.
This is brand new and I’ve worked hard to make this the most seamless experience possible while keeping you in total control over how Noonlight receives an alarm trigger. Please share your thoughts, comments and questions here. I’m happy to help!
