The mobile app makes it easy to update your Homelife contacts. The three different types of Homelife contacts are outlined below.

  • Emergency: Call Before Police - contacts verify alarms before dispatching emergency personnel. Two are required.
  • Emergency: Call After Police - contacts may be called after the authorities have been dispatched.
  • Non-Emergency - contacts receive notifications about automated system activities such as devices actions, when rules are triggered, or when your system is disarmed.

Follow these steps to edit or add to your Homelife contacts.

Note: All contacts can be edited, but contacts listed as Call Before Police cannot be deleted.
