Introducing "Scenes": One-Button Control for Your Whole Home

May 11 2016
Ever wished you had a magic button that automatically took care of things around the house for you?

As of today, you have one. Not just one, in fact, but several.

We've just added Scenes buttons to your Alarm.com app, giving you the ability to adjust multiple devices in your Alarm.com smart home with a single command.

Leaving the house? Tap the new ‘Away' button and your security system arms, your front door locks, your garage closes and your thermostat sets back to save energy.

Ready for bed? Tap ‘Sleep' to have your thermostat dial down or switch to the bedroom temperature sensor for perfect comfort, while your house secures itself for the night.

Update to the latest version of our app and you'll find four readymade scenes in your Alarm.com app: Home, Away, Sleep and Wake Up. Each scene is configured for a moment in the day where you need to adjust several things at once: arriving home, leaving the house, going to bed and getting up in the morning.

All four scenes are easy to customize and add to. You can add a porch light to your Home scene for a bright welcome, or set your downstairs lights to turn off automatically when you tap the Sleep button.

Want a button for a different moment? It's easy to build your own scenes with commands for your security system, locks, garage door, smart lights, smart thermostats and even your smart water valve.

Just pick a name for your new scene—Dinner, or Kids Bedtime—then select the devices involved, specify what you want them to do, and add the button to your Scenes menu. It will appear at the top of your Alarm.com app, ready to use.

Controlling your home just got even easier with Alarm.com—the only app you need for your home.
