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.

You can reach Abode through email or live chat support or give them a ring at +44 0330 6781104.
At first glance, customers seem to love Abode’s customer service. We scoured online reviews, though, and found many less-than-glowing reports. Often, the customer service rep would promise a follow-up and then not follow through.
We put them to the test and found they didn’t answer our emailed questions. They didn’t even answer our live-chat questions. During a chat, we got a notification that stated the answer to our question would be emailed to us in 10 minutes. That email never arrived.
Even worse, not every customer gets top-level support. Only customers that have Premium Support get around-the-clock priority help. It’s bundled with Abode’s top-tier monitoring package. We’re a bit cheesed off that you have to pay to be treated like an important customer when other security companies offer day and night support for free.
