About this app

Android users are devoted to their mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets have access to thousands of dependable and easy-to-use apps. That's why the Brinks Home Security app is so appealing: It lets either device control almost every function of your home security alarm system and
smart-home automation.

The perfect interaction

With compatible equipment and interactive functionality from, the Brinks Home Security app lets you manage your home from virtually anywhere. Go beyond the traditional home security alarm and add home security cameras, lights, locks, thermostats, garage-door openers and other devices to your system. After that, all it takes is a swipe or a tap to control your security and home automation devices and be aware of what s happening at
a moment's notice.

More than basic security

The Brinks Home Security app allows you to interact with your home security alarm system whether you're upstairs or uptown. Use our smart home solution to arm or disarm your system, lock or unlock doors, check the garage
door, or use a video doorbell to see who s there. There s no need to worry about forgetting to secure your house; just check it from wherever you are.

An extra set of eyes

Home security cameras are a popular addition to Brinks Home Security. Live or recorded video let you know what's going on while you're not home. It's easy to keep an eye on kids, pets or property.

Energy management

Smart thermostats are popular not just for convenience but for energy savings. Control your thermostat remotely, set up a schedule that fits your lifestyle, or let your thermostat determine your patterns and adjust
accordingly to maximize savings.

Control your lights

Remote management of your lighting is another great way to save energy. It's also a proven deterrent to would-be burglars, since they like it when no one's home. Keep them wondering by setting a schedule or by turning lights
on throughout your smart home when it gets dark and you're running late.

Just the beginning

Geo-fencing, which uses your location to automatically take useful actions while you're out. These range from real-time notifications such as a garage door that s been left open to functions like adjusting your thermostator turning on your lights. Just define a circular "geo-fence" in your Brinks Home Security app and let your smartphone do the rest.
Real-time email, text, and push notifications for potential emergencies, such as home security alarms, break-ins, and equipment failures.
Notification for specific events, such as when your kids get home from school, or when your housekeeper or petsitter are in the house.

Note: This app requires you to have a compatible smart-home system and interactive service plan. Feature availability varies based on system, equipment, and service plan. Visit for more

There are numerous settings in the software of the alarm system (accessible only to the installing tech) necessary for the app to work properly with the system panel in the home/building. If you are having issues with the app it is most likely because some settings in the installed system software were not activated. Errors will be shown in the final system check after installation, but the tech must remember to run them.

I never could get this camera to work very much until they had this fix. Thank you for that! But the picture used to enlarge now it works but it doesn't move or enlarge and there is no sound. I remember you could hear before now nothing did they sacrifice features to fix this? Better than no camera but reason for the 3 rating. Hopefully it records if there is movement or is monitoring up to us?

Decent app, but missing a few things... 1)The app is missing a dark mode, quite a few of these types of apps are missing dark modes. I typically use the app in the evenings and the white backgrounds burn my eyes. 2)Also, I've been try to no avail, to find the setting to add video streaming to my 2gig screen. 3) it's also missing the ability to setup an arming automation. Other than that I like how all the equipment talks together through one app.
