What sensor triggered that alarm?

With online command you can name your sensors. That way you can easily identify which one was triggered, is open or that you’d like to change settings for.

Ever wonder if someone is snooping around your private stuff?

Wonder no more with our new Secret Alerts! There's a setting for Entry and Motion Sensors called “No alarm—sms/email alert only.” When sensors on this setting are triggered, you’ll get a Secret Alert! letting you know about it, but your alarm system will remain quiet...no alarm is triggered.

This is a great setting to use for protecting jewelry boxes, the closet in your master bedroom, file cabinets, or drawers holding sensitive or private materials. Parents will find it useful for protecting the liquor cabinet and ensuring they are aware of anyone accessing medicine cabinets where powerful and dangerous prescription drugs are often stored.

Want to give someone access to just a portion of your home for a short while?

On occasion you might want to give someone access to a portion of your home (a shed, entryway, or garage) without needing to disable your entire alarm system, giving them unnecessary access to the rest of your home. You may want to do so for just a small window of time.

Do it with Online Command!
You’ll have the ability to change any sensor setting remotely from anywhere that you have an internet connection. Just select the Entry Sensor or Motion Sensor you’d like to disarm and change its setting to “No alarm—sms/email alert only.” The sensor won’t trigger an alarm, but you will get a Secret Alert! letting you know when your guest has arrived and triggered the sensor.
