home security rules

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.

Power play

Keep track of home from wherever you are by getting text notifications when the power to your Touchscreen goes out, possibly indicating a larger outage.

Emergency alert

Stay aware during an emergency by automatically turning on all your lights if your alarm sounds.

Fire escape

Make it easier to escape a fire by turning on lights and unlocking doors if the Smoke/Heat Detector alarm sounds.

Self-locking doors

Rest easy knowing your doors can lock themselves each night at anytime you choose.

Illuminate your homecoming

Turn on a light whenever you unlock your door after sunset.
