Help your home run itself
Make your smart home more you
You can set up your smart home to work just the way you want. Here’s how:
Set Rules so your devices work on their own, like having your lights turn on when you unlock the front door.
Create Scenes to activate devices together, like locking your doors and turning off your lights when you tap the Bedtime Scene.
Set up text and email notifications, like getting a text if someone unlocks the front door.

Your house, your Rules
Set Rules for your devices, from pairing actions to setting schedules. Here are our favorites:*
Front door camera
Never miss a moment at home. Get emailed a video clip when the front door opens, so you can see your kids get home safely from school.
Set the temperature to change throughout the day, so it always feels just right.
Smart night lights
Set a Smart LED Light Bulb to dim to 10% brightness at bedtime and turn off at sunrise.
Rest easy knowing your doors can lock themselves each night at any time you choose.
*Rules options vary based on your Homelife service tier and devices.
Making the Rules
You can make Rules straight from the Homelife app. Here’s how:
Set the Scene
Scenes let you group device actions, so you can control several devices with a tap. Here are our favorites*:
Sets your system to Home mode, turns on your lights and adjusts your thermostat.
Sets your system to Away mode, turns off your lights and adjusts your thermostat.
Sets your system to Home mode, turns on your lights, unlocks the front door and adjusts your thermostat.
Sets your system to Night mode, locks your doors, turns off your lights and adjusts your thermostat.
*Scenes options vary based on your Homelife service tier and devices.

You're always in the know
