Abode’s CUE program connects with so many devices that we had to write a brand new article to list them all. If you have other smart products like bulbs or smart connectors, you can link them to your Abode system.
You can create chain reactions to turn on the lights when the door is opened or activate video if the security camera detects activity from the motion detector. Like any smart home system, the possibilities are limited only by the products you have and your creativity.
Abode offers a self-monitoring option for $ 6 per person. Month. But we recommend the professional monitoring for $ 20 per. Month. The price is half of top systems like Frontpoint, but with the same quick response in emergencies.
Abode has two affordable systems for both tenants and owners. We are personal fans of the Iota system, which has a multi-talented base. The Iota station comes with a built-in security camera and motion detector, perfect for renters with limited space.
Both the Iota and Smart Security package come with a touch sensor for your front door or main window (your choice), and you can add sensors with your package in the box if you need more.
Our full Abode review goes into more detail about the system.
