About this app

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 phone or tablet. It’s your security at your fingertips.

EASY SETUP
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.

DASHBOARD
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.

EXPAND YOUR SYSTEM
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.

CUSTOMIZABLE NOTIFICATIONS
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.

SET UP WIDGETS
Add arming & disarming and quick actions to your widgets so you can quickly take care of your most important actions without ever having to open the abode app.

PUT YOUR SYSTEM ON AUTOPILOT
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.

Criminally underdeveloped. I don't know how well other systems perform, but my experience with Abode has been bug after bug. In the last two years I've experienced unreliable app behavior, unreliable geo location, inability to disable alarms from the app, incorrect low battery notifications, inability to see 24/7 recorded footage (an additional paid feature). Look elsewhere for a reliable solution.

The app only just barely works. It crashes about half of the times I open it, and when it does work it's unacceptably slow. It takes MINUTES to load the feed from a camera six feet away from my phone. Changing settings frequently just doesn't work. I had to factory reset my camera to change the motion detection settings, which still don't work correctly. "minimum viable product" seems to be their whole business plan. The app asked me for this review :)

works well consistently as an alarm and simple home automation hub. keeps working if internet connection is lost. easy to add hardware. call center alarm response is timely and consistent. the main shortfall is that the smart home integrations are not up to easy level for a novice (me), and I thinksomewhat limited for a more advanced user. so, good, solid alarm system with a solid (but not as capable as some others) smart home hub. Abode seems to continuously add device integrations.
