The Orro intelligent lighting and home control system now integrates with Alarm.com home security system and app, enabling users to control lighting features through the Alarm.com app, while adding Orro Switches to their Alarm.com Scenes.
As a result, the Alarm.com system will not only adjust thermostats, lock doors, and arm security systems, but also automatically activate and deactivate lighting anywhere there’s a connected Orro Switch.
“With built-in sensors for light, motion, and presence, and integrations for more than 60 brands of smart home products and systems, we see Orro as a natural fit for security,” said Orro CEO Colin Billings. “Alarm.com and Orro feature a common approach to smart home tech and features, including intuitive, all-in-one systems that unify control. As more home builders introduce security and intelligent lighting as standard features, this makes it even easier for them to offer fully integrated systems.”
By detecting motion, sound, and light with their built-in sensors, One Pro and S Switches are designed to respond with the perfect amount of light, while learning and adapting based on homeowners’ habits and preferences. Adding a Switch to the Alarm.com ecosystem is as simple as using Alarm.com’s device wizard feature.
The status of each Switch is reported and can be checked through the Alarm.com app. Once an account is linked, Switches allow for remote control and automation of lighting and lighting scenes connected to system events.
“With direct integration, Orro extends the Alarm.com ecosystem and brings new solutions to customers, such as the ability to intelligently automate lights in response to security system activity,” said Dan Kerzner, chief product officer, Alarm.com. “We see this as a valuable partnership that delivers added convenience and security to both Orro and Alarm.com customers.”
