Welcome to abode: A Bird’s-Eye View of Your New Smart Home
Have you decided it’s time to smarten up your home? Good decision. We know there are a lot of options out there. So, let’s break down exactly what you can expect from an abode smart home.
Here’s what comes in our Essentials Starter Kit:
Gateway: This is the central hub that connects all your devices to your home. Plus, it has built-in battery backup protection. So, even though there may be inclement weather in the forecast, you can trust your gateway to stay online for 10+ hours in the event the power goes out.
Mini Door/Window Sensors: Protect the vulnerable entry points into your home with our unobtrusive door and window sensors. You’ll know as soon as someone enters or exits. Don’t worry, you can set alerts so your notifications don’t buzz every time a friendly face opens the door.
Motion Sensor: Detect unwanted visitors inside or outside your home, any time of day. Customize the times and dates you set your motion sensors so that you only receive alerts when you want them, like at night or when everyone is away from the home.
Remote Key Fob: Control your entire abode system with a quick click of a button on our Key Fob. Don’t worry about setting your alarm and rushing out the door. Just step out of your home and click to arm. A quick click when you return disarms the whole system, once again.
But wait, there’s more.
While our Essentials Starter Kit is the perfect combination to get your home up and running with abode, we also offer extras additional products to expand your system. In addition to being able to purchase individual pieces of our Starter Kit, you can also shop for these smart home products:
Indoor/Outdoor Siren: You can program your abode Gateway to sound a loud siren when something goes awry. But if one siren is not enough, you can add as many as you want.
Glass Break and Vibration Sensors: Just remove the adhesive and stick them right on the window. Any tampering to your glass will be detected.
Smoke Alarm Monitor: Our abode smoke alarm monitors listen for your smoke alarms to sound and then alert the gateway to set off your notifications. It works with any UL-Listed smoke detectors — not just smoke detectors classified as “smart.”
Temperature/Humidity/Light Sensor: Do you have a room in your home that needs special attention to the temperature, humidity level, or light? Add an abode sensor for around-the-clock monitoring.
Water Leak Sensor: Water damage is the second leading cause of loss in homes. Our sensor immediately alerts you on your mobile phone when water is detected, allowing you to stop the leak before it becomes a larger problem.
