The abode app gives you complete peace of mind when it comes to your security by allowing you to arm & disarm, view live and recorded video, get a timeline history of your system, and receive immediate security alerts all right from your iPhone or iPad. It’s your security at your fingertips.

abode’s starter kits are incredibly easy to set up using our app. Simply open your kit and app and follow the guided instructions to be up & running in under 30 minutes.

Your system at a glance. The dashboard allows you to arm & disarm, pull up live video, view your most recent timeline events, and run quick actions all without leaving this screen.

Create powerful automations with your connected devices. From turning on lights and raising thermostats for your morning routine to arming your system and locking your doors for bedtime, you can do it all right from the app.

Much like the setup process, adding new devices to your system couldn’t be easier via the app. Just follow the guided instructions and build out the system of your dreams in minutes.

Determine what you’d like to receive notifications for. From doors opening & closing to water leaks detected, how much (or little) you are alerted to is totally up to you.

Add system arming & disarming, quick actions, and camera images to your homescreen or control center so you can quickly take care of your most important actions without ever having to open the abode app.

View only the events you want with the ability to filter by device type, device grouping, and date. Want to see only what happened at your front door? How about last weekend? With these filters, you can.

Use your phone’s location to automatically arm and disarm your system as you come and go. Set up the locations important to you and let abode do the rest.

Manually trigger your alarm audibly or silently to immediately alert our professional monitoring center and other users on your system in emergencies.

Good Security System but ..,

[update: We have two Ring Systems and one Abode system.
Sorry Abode but Ring is App easier to use and Ring’s system is better integrated. Their support is also better ]

• Great Security System with many features and controls. BUT ....

• MANY FUNCTIONS ARE NOT AVAILABLE from within the app. You HAVE to go to your account on the Browser. And the problem with that is many of those functions on the web based version are NOT smart phone friendly. You’d best have access to a desktop PC.

• THE AUTOMATIONS FUNCTION is only available as a beta version. It frequently acts buggy for me -probably because they are making changes.
Guess I’m old-fashioned - the companies I worked for we all tested our stuff BEFORE we released it.

• Abode NEEDS TO REDESIGN THE COLORS OF THE APP. Light cyan against a white background is difficult for some of us to read. The present color scheme might look cool but not every user has 20 year old eyes.

• Abode NEEDS TO REDESIGN THE APP UI TO MAKE IT SIMPLER - Especially if they are not going to make all the presently web-based functions available in the app.

Abode are you listening?

Fixed Location Services

The latest update from the end of May (5.0) broke the location services that were working perfectly fine up until the latest update. Even though it lists both my wife and I as inside, it states that our location services are off and never triggers Auto-Away. I’ve uninstalled, turned location services off and back on in the app and on both phones to no avail.

I was enjoying the system and app until this latest update. Please fix this asap as it’s been over a week and this is a big feature that a lot of people use. It’s hard to believe that it made it through Beta testing without being noticed. I’ll change my review once this has been fixed.

Edit: They have fixed the location services. The new app is still wonky from time-to-time but is on its way to being a really nice, smooth and functional app. The service itself is still really nice and I’d recommend it over most others on the market.

Forced into monthly subscription after 2 years

We had the system for 2 years with no monthly subscription. It included timeline features and auto set alarm based on phone location and auto set features for night and morning. They also advertise short term package with professional monitoring. We tried to use this when going out of town for a week and have our system monitored. When we returned we tried to return to a free self monitored program but were informed the auto set feature now needed a monthly subscription and since we used their pro service short term we could not return to subscription free program and still have the features we had the week before. But they did offer a dollar a month discount… Thanks for nothing.I had recommended this product over the previous years but after being tricked into a subscription Hope no one makes the same mistake
