The gateway to a
smarter, more secure home.
In order to create a smarter home, we had to build a smarter solution. While other hubs or gateways offer a few features, we innovated and packed the abode gateway full of capabilities that make other security and home automation solutions jealous. The abode gateway connects the devices in your home to the abode cloud and professional monitoring center. Turbo-charge your home with the new standard.
Stop false alarms quickly.
Visual Verification lets you know what exactly caused an alarm, putting an end to false alarms. Simply add a Wide Angle Motion Sensor with Camera or a Streaming Camera to see what caused an alarm. If the alarm is real, simply verify the alarm to the professional monitoring center or click the “Call Police” button if you are self-monitored.
abode automatically arms your alarm system when you leave your home and disables your alarm when you return home. With our built-in automation capabilities, you can also set up custom actions to occur. Simply come and go as you please, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Get up and running in minutes.
It all begins with a starter kit. The abode Essentials starter kit is affordably priced and includes everything you need to get up and running quickly.
The abode gateway is the central hub that connects all of your devices in your home to the abode cloud and monitoring center. The gateway connects to abodeRF long range wireless devices, and approved Z-Wave, ZigBee, and IP-enabled devices and services (Amazon Echo, IFTTT, etc). It also includes 3G cellular backup (optional, monthly fee applies) to ensure you are always able to connect to your home. Additionally, with built in battery backup protection, your gateway can remain online for 10+ hours in the event of a power outage.
Motion Sensor with Camera
Our motion sensors don't just sense motion, they also take photos to help you quickly identify the cause of the alarm. By pairing Abode’s motion detection technology with a powerful camera, your system will always alert you to unexpected activity in your home. Utilizing wireless communication to the Abode gateway, you can place the camera anywhere in your home. A built-in flash will assist in low-light conditions. The camera has been designed to take photos (640x480) and transmit them to you rapidly for a security context to help you prevent false alarms. We struck the perfect balance between speed and quality to allow you to identify what is going on so that photos can be quickly sent to your abode enabled smart phone.
Door / Window Sensor
A simple device packed with value. If a door or a window opens, you’ll know it, whether it should have opened or not. It’s that simple. We evaluate other door/window contacts available, and determined they did not meet our quality standards, so we designed our own! The abode Door/Window contact is long-range and works in homes of all sizes. Under normal operating conditions, the battery lasts 10+ years so you can set it and forget it.
Our key fob makes system control easier if your hands are full, and it is a handsome addition to your key chain. The KeyFob utilizes the long-range abodeRF frequency to communicate directly with your gateway. You can set your system mode to home, away, or stand-by. Later this year, the keyfob can be programmed with a free software update to allow you to turn on lights, lock doors, and much more.
The abode wireless keypad is an easy-to-install solution that makes it easier than ever to securely control home/away/standby modes of your abode gateway. The keypad has 16 backlit buttons that enable easy use at nighttime and supports 40 unique PIN codes that can be setup on the abode web application. The keypad features a long battery life lasting four to six years powered by lithium batteries and uses long-range abodeRF.
Designed in California, the abode IP camera uses your internet connection (Ethernet or WiFi) to send a high quality (720p) video stream in realtime. By leveraging an integrated HD camera and cloud-based storage, abode offers high quality streaming video, recordings and information on events. In the event of an alarm, the streaming camera will show you what happened before, during, and after an alarm. As a result, you can always check-in on your home to see what’s happening from anywhere in the world.
