App Interface

The Abode App interface is split into five categories for quickly and easily managing your home. These categories are found at the bottom of the app screen.

  2. Timeline - view chronological event history from all your Abode devices here, such as video captures, door opening/closings, history of automations running, and more. Events can be filtered by day, groupe, devices, and event type.

  3. Devices - view and controll all paired devices, view device status, and fine-tune device settings.

  4. CUE - create rules so your devices can run a series of actions automatically, or simply tap the card to run the associated actions manually. You can alos setup Quick Actions that run automatically with a single tap. Learn more about the CUE Automation Engine here.
