MARCH 13, 2018 – SAN JOSE, CA. – Qolsys, the leading provider of security and smarthome technology, announced today the release of Live View, the streaming of Alarm.com video cameras to the panel’s 7” HD touchscreen. Live View was enabled in the 2.1 Software Update, released February 2018.
“Live View completely changes the user experience in the home,” says Qolsys SVP Sales and Marketing Mike Hackett. “Users are drawn to the 7” touchscreen to check on their kids or pets, view the back yard or see the front porch all from the easy to use interface.”

Up to 40 cameras associated with the system will automatically appear, allowing users to easily select the desired video feed with a single touch, providing the user with real-time visibility in their home or business.
