The Abode alarm system can automatically run other smart devices. It can turn on your porch light and close your garage door automatically when the system’s armed before bed, for example.
You’ll need the right subscription, though. Smart home automation is only available with the Intermediate, Monitored Intermediate, and Monitored Advanced subscription plans. The Basic plan lets you connect devices to your system, but they won’t work together in automated processes.
Abode’s home security system is compatible with just about every type of smart device. If it’s in your home, it probably works with Abode.
If you love Apple products, Abode is a solid choice. It’s one of the only security systems that’s compatible with Apple HomeKit.
Not an Apple fan? Abode is compatible with many others:
With Google Assistant, Alexa and Apple HomeKit, you can arm your system from bed using voice commands. We love this feature when we’re too exhausted to even reach for our phones.
Z-Wave, ZigBee, and IFFT connect the smart devices around your house to your home security system so they all work together in harmony. From the Abode app, you can turn on your smart lights, arm your system and shut the garage door without switching to another app.
