Connect your life to your home and your security.
Texecom Connect transforms the experience of interacting and automating your home or business. It provides an environment where you want to interact and enjoy the new possibilities open to you, delivering the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are in complete control.
Central to the Texecom Connect App experience is the timeline. Events are clearly presented, giving you instant access to review events that have transpired, and also to plan and modify predicted events or changes in system status.
The calendar offers a detailed day-by-day record of the previous two weeks events, with one week of recorded video footage. By accessing the calendar, users can view past activity including device activations, home automation recipes and system mode changes. Recorded camera footage can be viewed directly from the calendar as well as the option to view live camera footage.
Create your own home or business automation
Texecom Connect puts you in control of building automation. Make lights automatically turn on when you enter a room. Make sure that your hair straighteners are turned off when you leave the house. Receive notifications when your kids come home, or a parcel is delivered while you are at work. Personalise how you automate your home as with Texecom Connect you can do it all, your way.
During commissioning of the Texecom Connect App, security alarm devices are mapped into rooms by the security installer, making these devices accessible to the end user for home automation.
Devices are allocated to rooms within the Texecom Connect App, which makes locating devices and creating home automation recipes from multiple devices in a room easy and intuitive.
Recipes are a user-friendly way of describing the programming actions that are used for automation. The Texecom Connect App is programmed on the basis of ‘cause and effect’.
Example recipes include, ‘when I enter through my front door and it is dark outside, turn on my hall light’ or ‘when someone is detected at my front door, send a notification message to my phone’.
A mode is a state in which you would set there home, e.g. holiday mode, bed time mode, day mode. This is a key ‘short cut’ that you can use to put your premises into a known state depending on how you want to use the system. For example, in ‘breakfast mode’, we might expect the system to be disarmed, kitchen power sockets on and kitchen lights turned on if it is dark outside.
Texecom Connect is compatible with IP cameras that support JPEG video formats. View live footage from your Texecom Connect app, anywhere in the world, and locally record video to your smartphome.
Texecom Connect puts you in control of who can use the Texecom Connect App and the level of access for each user.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is a disaster. It might look slick on the surface. But don’t be deceived.
If you are looking to install a new alarm system you wish to control online via an app on your phone, then steer well clear of Texecom.
If you are already invested in a Texecom legacy system you wish to control via this app, then prepare to suffer multiple problems of poor design, poor technical connectivity, slow response rates, a very badly thought through user interface and general frustration.
The connection speed is slow and the connection is often unreliable. The ability to control the alarm is limited, with multiple unhelpful error messages. The onscreen indicators are poorly designed and often confusing. The workflow is poor.
This app is simply bad. It’s an embarrassment to your iPhone. Apple is the opposite of everything about this app and the technical system behind it.
I would be surprised if the boss of Texecom runs his own home security via this product. If he did, there is no way it would be this poorly designed and dysfunctional.
This is not the future of integrated online security. Beware if you are a new customer with freedom to choose a properly modern system. Sympathies if you are stuck with Texecom and have to put up with this.
App doesn’t do half the things shown here. Eg it doesn’t show the change of modes in the timeline... the idea is good and I hope it improves soon.
