Home alarm without monitoring?

Currently I have a home alarm system with Vintage Security and one of the best features is to use the alarm.com app to arm / disarm the system with a smartphone.

I am thinking of cancelling my monitoring plan since it costs like $50.00 a month, I was told that if I cancel the monitoring plan, the alarm system will still work, just that there won't be anyone monitoring and call the police if someone breaks in.

I am fine with that, however, I like to have the feature of using the app to arm / disarm the system and sends me notifications when a sensor goes off. I was told that if I cancel the monitoring plan, I will no longer be able to use the alarm.com app. Is that true? If that's the case, is there anything out there that I can use with my existing alarm system to allow me to arm / disarm with an app and sends notifications?

The app is linked to the account; and that's the way _all_ such apps work. You have to be connected to some form of external server to make such apps work.
