About us

When it comes to home security, there’s
everyone else. And then there’s us.
First person

First person

abode was founded in 2014 by former ADT exec Christopher Carney along with a few entrepreneurs with expertise in energy, security and tech.

We offer out-of-the-box support for virtually any smart home device on the market including Nest, Amazon Echo, the Google Assistant, Philips Hue, ecobee, ZigBee and Z-Wave.

Our HQ is based in San Francisco, California, with a team around the U.S. In 2018, we received a majority stake investment from Italian tech company Nice S.p.A., an international leader in the home automation, home security and smart home sector. Nice provides integrated automation solutions for gates, garage doors, solar shading systems, parking systems, wireless alarm systems and security for residential, commercial and industrial buildings. We will work closely with the Nice team to strengthen our position within the U.S. and expand into global markets.

The vision

We believe in the power of technology to keep us safe – but we also believe in simplicity. The products we build are meant to live and grow with us, to protect us but also give us comfort.

We believe in changing the paradigm around home security and creating a new kind of security system. A system that lets you choose how you want it to look, what devices you want to add to it, and how you want it to fit into your day to day life.

We believe in our community, in each and every user who has an abode system in their homes. We are grateful for that trust, and we will continue to build products that keep you safe, connected, and fulfilled.

Your home, your abode. Your way.
