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.

CUE HOME AUTOMATION
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.

The live camera feed rarely works. I've only been able to successfully see a live stream briefly exactly TWO times in about a year of owning the system and that was after doing the troubleshooting steps support sent. I dont understand why this can't be fixed. It's an ongoing issue going back to 2019 if you do a simple Google search. Yet Abode seems unable or uninterested in fixing it. I'll be dropping down to just the self-monitoring service this year. The app also hangs often, despite updates.

Lots of things doesn't work. Constantly finding bugs. Customer support is not so stellar, they'll try to help but users have to work and debug for them. The back and forth had become annoying. Some bugs I encountered: - During alarm, video failed to capture as it should be. - For smart lights, if you unplug it, it will still indicate it's on. - Camera motion detection sensitivity adjustment doesn't work. It's been too sensitive for me, and keep capturing small movement instead of people moving.

There is a critical flaw in this app which is that a triggered alarm does not make your phone blow up. It literally just shows a normal push notification which doesn't even make sound if your phone is on silent. Make sure you sleep close to the Gateway hardware because this app does absolutely nothing to wake you up in the case of an alarm. It should be like a wake up alarm, cutting through the volume settings and displaying a persistent interface.
