How the POMAlarm Wireless Home Monitoring System Works
When you get your POMAlarm(s) and Gateway Hub(s), you’ll need to choose a centrally located place for your hub. Most people put it near their router since that is typically near the center of their home.
When you’ve chosen a place for your hub, you’ll need to set up and activate your devices. Visit our activation page for detailed instructions and videos to guide you through this process.
After setup and activation, sure to log into your account and set the phone numbers and email addresses you’d like to be notified when an alarm sensor is moved. You can also set quiet times, designated times the alarm should be turned off each day.
After your devices are activated and your information has been set, place your home sensors on the item(s) you’d like to monitor. POM Alarm is designed to be used on liquor or medicine cabinets, jewelry boxes, drawers, doors, or windows, but the sensors can be placed anywhere you need extra security. They are 1.5 inches in diameter and approximately .5 inches tall, making them easy to put in small spaces.
What Happens When an Alarm Sensor Goes Off?
A POMAlarm sensor only has to be moved to go off. That’s what makes them ideal for liquor and medicine cabinets. As soon as someone picks up the bottle or opens the cabinet door, the sensor flashes a subtle red light. Our home sensors are silent, never alerting the perpetrator that an alarm has been set off. In the case of a break-in, this increases the chances of catching the intruder, since they’re more likely to stay on the scene if there is no audible alarm system.
When the alarm is set off, notifications are sent to the phone number(s) and email address(es) you have designated in your account. The notification will tell you which alarm sensor has been moved and the exact time and date of the incident. In the case of an intruder, this allows you to notify authorities immediately with detailed information, instead of hours later when you arrive home. This increases the chances of recovering your stolen property and catching the thief.
