Internet connection type compatibility
Alarm.com video devices need an indefinite, always-on internet connection to function reliably. Some internet connections are incompatible due to restrictions they impose on bandwidth usage.
|3G/4G cellular (e.g., Clear)||Not compatible|
Alarm.com wireless cameras work with most wireless routers, but there are wireless routers that may not work very reliably whether the customer has video cameras or not. Online reviews are a good way to distinguish between the good and the problematic routers. Some routers may also need firmware upgrades to perform reliably.
It is recommended that video devices be connected to a network device that has a unique SSID and password. For dual-band routers, verify that the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands have separate SSIDs as well.
Note: The instructions for segregating wireless bands differ based on the router model. Please refer to the manufacturer’s guide for more information.
Alarm.com video devices consume bandwidth when they are uploading recorded video clips, or someone is actively looking at live video or SVR recorded footage. Even when in use, the video device cannot consume all available bandwidth because routers allocate bandwidth fairly among all the devices that are on the network (e.g., computers, tablets, etc.).
Alarm.com video devices primarily use upload speed, as opposed to download speed. Typically, Alarm.com requires an indefinite broadband connection of at least 0.5 Mbps of dedicated upload speed per video device. For example, four video devices would need 2 Mbps of dedicated upload speed to function properly. However, 1080p (full HD) streaming, Alarm.com Doorbell Cameras, Two-Way Audio, and SVR integration all require additional bandwidth.
Note: Dedicated upload speed refers to bandwidth only used by the video devices, so other connected devices (e.g., computers, smartphones, gaming consoles, etc.) require additional bandwidth on the internet connection.
