Security functionality – Has three different modes (away, standby, and home). The first two modes are pretty straightforward. The home is interesting. It’s a hybrid of home and away. i.e. you can have windows and doors alarmed but able to move around the home without setting off motion/video motion sensors.
Ease of use – has geo-fencing, automation, and quick actions. Solid thought out ways to remotely arm/arm your system
Android/Tablet/Apple/PC accessibility – software is pretty flexible and works seamlessly across all devices (the location service between devices offers excellent real-time alarm related alarm/photo notifications. Really!)
Expandability – integrates with Amazon/Alexia home automation AI via IFTTT (not complicated either), compatible Z-Wave & ZigBee Devices, plus, abode has a decent selection of devices as well.
Monitoring flexibility – has 3 options, professionally yearly, professionally on demand, and self-monitoring. The on-demand professional monitoring comes in 3 and 7-day options
Device functionality – The gateway is quite intelligent and sits there until needed. It requires an internet cable to be connected directly to it. I mention it because the location is key. My gateway is located in a hallway closet which has a 72-decibel siren that is included inside the gateway itself. I also use a remote siren/light device (172 decibels) that sits above my outside door. The combination of both alarms will definitely deter a robber.
I have a remote keypad that is quite flexible and easy to use. It offers emergency key activation, multiple users, and even a guest user for those times that temporary access is needed to your home. Door/window sensors work as expected, with the addition of an audible sound when any door/window is opened.
The video camera in the motion sensor is pretty damn good. I tested the motion sensor during different times of the day and the lighting was very good. Good enough to give to the police for identification (contrary to other reviewers stating ok video and snapshots are off. In the end it was all about sensor placement and location).
This is 1st generation mainstream DIY technology, implementation requires some careful reading to fully explore its capabilities. Also note, that this is a different approach to traditional technology. Understanding what your objectives are and the system's capabilities, will help guide you in your selection process.
The application that comes with the device for iOS is as efficient and intuitive as they come. The items, setup, and notifications all make easy sense. The website interface is smooth sailing from login to logout. Everything from software to hardware in regard to the product is user friendly to all levels of customer-technical knowledge. If you can enter the password for your wifi router to connect your devices to the internet, you can follow the instructions to setup this product out of the box.
You can tell hundreds if not thousands of hours were devoted to this project by those who put the hardware, website and application together. I will recommend this alarm system to everyone who is serious about security. Those who want to protect investments and their family will feel confident with their purchase.
I would've given it a 5, but I had some struggles with the out of the box automation the software offers. It allows you to set up a Geofenced area so that it automatically arms and disarms itself based on the location of your mobile device. I could easily do it if I had only one device to manage, but when I tried to turn on the feature that allows it to consider a second device (my husband), the system just does not work as it should. I've reached out to customer service and they've been trying to help me, but we have been playing phone tag for a couple of months now.
