Our friends over at AlertMe continue to improve and develop their smart home security system. Recent additions are a beautiful new interface for the iPhone (other phones supported soon), the announcement of an API for developers to interface to the system and most interestingly news that “SmartPlug” is on the way.
The new AlertMe iPhone / iPod Touch Application is now available at mobile.alertme.com. You can view and change the status of your alarm, see who’s at home, look at your event history and view the temperate sensor values around your house. AM say they are also working on a version to work on a wider range of phones in the coming months.
Finally, the AlertMe API (that’s used for the iPhone interface above) is now being offered to 3rd parties. AM are looking for developers to get in touch with the company if they wish to interface to their device. An API is one of the many improvements we wanted to see from AM in our in-depth review of the system, and we’re impressed with how far the system has come in recent months.
